      ok its been almost a week, new update time!

      also wondering will it be a hybrid turbo you are making for the ttrs, just like the s3/r and recent 1.8 tfsi conversion? i hope for a nice PnP solution... not like the old generic turbo kits where there was all that hardware you had to replace...

      below is a ready to go turbo good for 500hp just needs someone to make a file

      A hybrid is a waste of money IMHO.
      To much cost for to little power gain over a OEM turbo totally tuned to the maxx.
      440-460 hp could be achieved if you optimised everything, like software, airbox, cat's, exhaust, cams, fuel system, intercooler and so on.
      Spending another 4000,- for a hybrid turbo and getting up to 500 is not worth it IMHO.

      well then make a hybrid that gets 600 then its worth it

      No way on the hybrid! This will be a proper stage 3 turbocharger system.

      I'm sorry, is this what we are waiting on? Is this vehicle also "chipped" or is this strictly the result of the APR altered exhaust system? If the later, then hurry the hell up. The free flow and sharper acceleration is clearly obvious in the video. Man is my wife going to want to kill me in a few months.

      You can put on a bigger compressor and get 580 hp out of it, but you add turbo lag as well.

      The biggest issue with the hybrid turbos in my opinion is related reliability. The hot side is designed for very quick spool and as such the turbo spools up quickly and power peeks early, then drops off. Pushing the turbo harder and harder though such a small and thin point creates excessive EGT's. I know of some people who've destroyed TTRS engines by pushing these turbos well beyond their manufactured limits. That's against our corporate philosophy, so we are doing thing's the right way.

      Another business week has come and gone. One more week until Christmas.

      Any progress? I know what the answer is I suppose or you, Arin, would have said something.

      But, we established the expectation. We know someone is running some nice performance enhancements and some of us are more than anxious to see the goods.

      Quando, quando, when?

      Can you throw us a bone?

      I heard APR is having technical difficulties with the USDM TTRS reflashes, so the release is delayed.

      We are not having difficulties with flashing the ECU in house, we are simply finishing up the tools our dealers will need to flash the ECU. We expected a December launch, but January is looking more realistic.

      so when can we see power graphs for the TTRS, or will they be exactly the same as the australian ones posted on your site?

      It will have to be after the new year and power will not be the same.
