Yeah, maybe.... probably.... someone is using it.

But you shouldn't really make it public, as we were all able to see what might happen then. (German TÜV+kane)

Variable turbos will only work on the ATL 90HP engine. The AMF and BHC work with a 'traditional' waste-gate turbocompressor and cannot (reasonably) be fitted with a VNG turbo.

 

Here's a conversion video on Kane's 6 speed gearbox.

 

Here (you already found this thread) you can read what happened. During an ordinary control non-standard items were discovered that were not approved. All upgrades were then retrofitted.
