APR announces the Transverse Stage III+ system. The ultimate turbo system upgrade is now available for the Golf, GTI, Jetta and TT. This kit is capable of 340 horsepower and 320 foot-pounds of torque at the flywheel on 93 octane gas, while retaining excellent drivability. The highlights of the kit include the following:

  • APR Investment Cast Inconel Exhaust Manifold
  • Honeywell/Garrett Ballistic Series Ball-Bearing Turbocharger
  • Larger APR designed Mass Airflow Sensor Housing
  • APR Custom Cast Silicone Intake Hoses
  • APR High Flow Fuel Injectors and Fuel Pump
  • All Associate Plumbing and Hardware

The power increase with the APR Stage III+ kit for the 1.8T is substantial. It is highly recommended that brake and suspension upgrades are done to safely use the potential of this upgrade. It is also recommended that the stock engine internals be upgraded for power levels above 93 octane.
