Volkswagen Golf R 2.0T
Mk7 (2015+)
APR Stage 3+ Turbo System

August 12, 2016

With the influx of quality aftermarket parts and software providers it has become commonplace to add 30-50 hp to turbocharged cars with relative ease. Adding a little bit of boost and adding a free-er flowing exhaust isn’t rocket science, but the results are good. Great gains can be found from making little changes.


But what about when you want more? More than just a little better? More than just 30-50 hp? What do you do? Well if you’re our customer and own a 2016+ MK7 VW Golf R the answer is, we make the jump to a full blown Stage 3+ APR Turbokit and Fueling Upgrade.

The APR Stage 3 Turbocharger System produces an incredible 522 HP and lays down 10-second quarter mile passes, all through a convenient, affordable and expandable, turn-key solution.


This car is already a full APR Stage 2 VW, which means it already had an intake, a downpipe, and complimentary ECU Tuning. So in order to ensure that the car would run at the elevated power levels for many years and miles to come we pro-actively replaced the clutch assembly.

Our Performance Specialists spec’d out a unit from South Bend Clutch, which was well matched to the torque levels the car was anticipated to put out.First step to getting the new APR Stage 3 2.0T MQB Turbo kit installed is to remove the old unit. Here you can see the technician removing the accessory feed/drain lines from the stock unit.

APR has created a great kit that is far more extensive than just a turbocharger and a manifold. It is a complete performance solution that is sold as a combination of hardware and software.
With the old turbo out of the way the new one fits in nicely. APR utilizes an Ultra-Responsive and Reliable Turbocharger, A Borg Warner twin scroll EFR7163 delivers amazing top end power with incredible response all in a ultra-reliable turbocharger unit.

Now that the engine bay transformation is complete it was time to install the Stage 3+ Fueling Upgrade from APR. The system is a 2 part upgrade, first the removal of the rear seat and the stock fuel pump hanger unit. Secondly installation of a secondary fuel rail and set of (4) injectors!

The Factory VW MK7 Golf R In tank fuel system in the process of being rebuilt with the upgraded APR components.

APR utilizes factory VW components for the fuel rail and injector upgrade. The Stage 3+ Fueling kit provides an OEM level approach to this upgrade with European Market components. After this last round of modifications the owner now has a car that is capable of running the quarter mile in nearly 10 seconds flat, can haul 4 people comfortably to the ski slope, and can fit a washing machine in the back with seats folded flat.


There are not too many other offerings out there that allow that sort of capability and flexibility.
