      Will the kit produce a blow-off sound, or will it be quiet.

      We have not altered the factory diverter valve in any way. If you have an open element filter, you should be able to hear it based on how other cars sound. If you have the factory air box, I'm pretty sure it will be faint. I don't recall hearing it much back in February, but the car had a completely stock airbox.

      New Turbo Inlet to address clearance on LHD vehicles.


      New Turbo Manifold for more clearance for heat shields.


      Oil Return Line (couldn't find the other lines) and everyones at lunch.


      Turbo Wastegate Bracket. I have an SLA Piece but this is the finished part.

      You really can't see anything from the top. From the bottom, it's very difficult as well.

      Right now our engine is out of the car for more development.

      This is 99% correct:

      http://www.goapr.com/support/ecu_removal/gti_mk5.html

      Remove Wipers
      Peel seal of plenum chamber.
      Pull plenum chamber off.

      You'll see the ECU clearly towards the passenger side.

      Where the TT-RS is different is the ECU is held in with just a plastic clip of sorts.
      Push on it and the ecu will release and slide out into your hands. Then you can clearly see the chastity belt preventing you you from unplugging the ECU. Cut slots in the bolts and remove using a flat head. (be sure to use blankets to cover up the windshield and anything else you don't want glowing metal filings attacking.

      I do recall one set had some loctite on them and were a bitch to get out. Ended up going back over them with the dremel for a second pass which seemed to help heat it up and break them free.

      Not if you put it back together with the same shear bolts.
      That being said, if you take it in, they'll scan and see it's been flashed.

      There is no program switching available at the moment....

      Hoping APR has the shear bolts around nowadays.

      Here's a sneak peak of the Stage III Turbocharger System!



      We just want to thank The Smoking Tire for their true Journalistic Professionalism as it's something often missed in magazines and other media outlets today. They were completely unbiased in their review and we were not even asked to cover their expenses. They were a class act operation and if anyone has the chance to work with them in the future, I say go for it.

      depends on the depth of your pockets

      the 7 speed DSG is probably around 7,000-$10,000

      I dont wanna guess at labour...

      but I can't wait for the first APR Stage 2 & 3 DSG mules to do telemetry runs....
      think smoking tire said 0-60 in 2.8... if that s the MANUAL tranny than god help the Veyron Buggatti trying to race you to 60....

      We will show dynos when it's finished.

      One of our 6MT cars just crossed the quarter mile line with a trap speed of 127 MPH though. He even had a boost leak / faulty sensor, so he thinks there is more in it.
