Turbo upgrade

Hi, I'm Consider a turbo upgrade to my a4 pd130. It already has a gt1749vb hybrid at 180bhp, and I'm looking at gt2052v as a replacement.
Is it worth swapping it out or keeping the upgrade hybrid I already have installed?

Cheers

180 is what it came out with the hybrid turbo fitted, so unless the tuner was holding back I'm not sure?

Tbh you're injectors are at their limit at 180, after that you're increasing duration which means higher egt's and smoke. I'd stick where you are.

The only turbo's I'd consider changing to are a more modern GTB or gtd turbo and purely for the faster spool up and reliability
