      APR Presents the 1.8T / 2.0T EA888 Gen 3 Boost Tap



      Product Page

      The APR Boost Tap for the 1.8T and 2.0T EA888 Gen 3 engines is a simple, yet elegant solution for referencing boost pressure and vacuum as is commonly necessary for boost gauges. The boost tap plugs directly into the factory intake manifold via the boost pressure sensor bung and can be removed at any time without any permanent modification.



      Kit Includes:

      - 1 Injection-molded boost tap
      - 1 Viton o-ring seal
      - 1 Stainless steel barbed connection point
      - 1 MAP sensor fastener
      - 1 Brass “No-buzz” mechanical boost gauge restrictor pill
      - 1 Tap cap
      - 5 Stepless OEM style ear clamps
      - 96 Inches of 200 PSI hose
      - 1 T-fitting
      - 5 Black cable ties

      Constructed from lightweight injection-molded glass-filled polypropylene with a Viton o-ring, the tap has very tight tolerances for leak free operation. The reference hoses connect to the rear of the tap via a barbed stainless steel connection point and conveniently routes out of sight. A special fastener was developed to ensure a solid OEM-style-connect between the boost tap, MAP sensor and manifold.

      In addition to the boost tap, APR provides several extra components to help suit each individual’s needs. For those requiring more than one reference source, a T-Fitting allows for more tapping points. In the case where a mechanical boost gauge is used, the brass restrictor pill limits flow and cures gauge buzz. Just less than 100 inches of 200 PSI hose is included with OEM style ear clamps and black cable ties to allow for neatly routing hose through the engine bay.



      The APR Boost Tap comes with a lifetime warranty and is the only solution one will need for years of reliable operation.

      Yes! Working on it now. The Gauge pods are ready, but we're making changes to our gauge at the moment. : )

      Same here, I'm just waiting on some install pics and the gauge. Just want to see how the gauge will look compared to the digital vent replacement one. As soon as these come out, they are as good as bought .

      Does anyone have experience getting a whole bunch of APR stuff done at once? Is there a discount or deal? I ask because I plan on getting most of what APR releases installed at my local APR dealer in the spring.

      I agree the boost tap and gauge should have been released simultaneously. There are no real nice fitting gauges for the mk7 just yet. Nobody really wants a boost tap right now.

      I would gladly purchase the tap and gauge together as a package.

      We released the tap before the gauge because the tap was finished and ready to release.

      2 weeks later still no sign of APR gauge. Is APR waiting till h20 to release it?

    31. 09-08-2014 08:55 PM #31
      Just received the tap and vent pod. Very nice quality and professional packaging as well! Couldn't be happier with the product.

      Question on restrict or pill: where is the recommended place to install this? I'm assuming it gets pressed into the vacuum hose, should it be nearer to the tap or gauge? Does it matter?

      Looking forward to the gauge release.. Should be soon

    32. 09-25-2014 01:20 PM #32
      I have installed this boost tap on both my 2 door MK7 1.8 TSI and my 4 door MK7 GTI with mechanical Auto Meter boost guages and they work flawlessly.

      The only question I have for Arin is how do I eliminate the buzz in the guage and where do I install that small insert. I put the insert by the tap in the tube however with the APR stage 1 tune on my GTi the car makes 25 psi in boost and the guage still has a little buzz on the top end.

      Thoughts?

      My photos are on instagram under offthesetprops
