    Thread: APR STAGE 3 ON GOLF R & S3

    1. 01-20-2010 11:49 PM #1
      Hi there,
      I would like to know if a Stage 3 conversion which uses a Garrett GT 2871R turbo kit done on a Golf R or a S3 which basically share the same engine. Do you need to upgrade the engine internals like pistons, conrods & head stud bolt to handle the increased power & torque? Is this Stage 3 kit available in the UK now?
      Thank you & looking forward to your reply soon.
      Have a nice day!!

      The regular APR Stg.3 FSI uses stock internals. Actually the S3 & Golf R use stronger internal then the regular FSI engine. The cams are different as is lower compression (9.8:1) versus (10.5:1). Thats why APR can extrac more power from the S3, TTS & Golf R models.

      Yes. We have a stage III kit with GT2871R for the S3 and soon to be Golf R.
      No. You do not need to upgrade pistons, rods, or the head for the increase in power on pump fuel. If you want to run race gas you'll need to upgrade the rods.
      The stage III kit is available in the UK now.
