  • Golf R 2.0T FSI dyno comparison between APR Stage II+ and APR Stage III with upgraded turbo

    Here is a dyno comparison at the crank from the MKVI Golf R one of which is equipped with the APR Stage II+ kit which utilizes the stock K04 turbo and the Stage III kit which utilizes a Garret GTX series turbo. The Stage III offers more power but what the spool is what is impressive as there is much more top end without a big sacrifice in lag. The graph shows only about a couple hundred RPM difference between the stock and upgraded turbo.

    The power difference is huge however with the Stage II+ car putting down 357 horsepower and the Stage III with 444 horsepower. Torque numbers are 359 pound-feet and 452 pound-feet respectively.

    The Stage II car has and upgraded HPFP, intercooler, and exhaust. The Stage III likely includes the aforementioned plus the upgraded turbo. Very nice upgrades for the Golf R from APR

      I think the turbo was specified in some of the other threads on the Stage III. I don't know it off the top of my head.

      I believe so, the chart says 93oct

      plus I think at 100oct levels on stage 3 requires an engine build, at least on the TSI it does, it may be different for the FSI.


      Apparently APR has some stuff in the works for the TSI, possibly some gtx kits, apparently the EFR is too big to fit :/
