• 418 wheel horsepower 2.0 FSI APR Stage III GTX2867R MKVI built by USP Motorsports

    2.0 liter motors are way too small to offer any serious horsepower? Well this one begs to differ. Here is a MKVI Golf R built by USP Motorsports faeturing the APR Stage III kit which at its heart features a Garett GTX2867R turbocharger upgrade. The direct injected 2.0 liter four cylinder is boosted to a very respectable 418 horsepower at the wheels and 383 pound-feet of torque at the wheels. Keep in mind, this is just at the front wheels.


    The Golf R does feature all wheel drive so these numbers would drop and likely to under 400 providing the run was on an all wheel drive Dynojet. It was run on a two wheel drive Dynojet so USP unplugged the Haldex all wheel drive module essentially turning the Golf into a front wheel drive car. That does not change the fact this is some serious horsepower and torque over stock and coming from APR you know the reliability will be as close to OEM as a Golf R pushing around 500 crank horsepower can be.

    Very nice results for a turbo kit that costs $5924.99 and has been very well tested and tuned. Dyno video below.

      Well there's one guy here who talks day and night about how these motors are for ricers. Yet, I thought ricers were all show and no go?

      There's plenty of 2.0 liter motors out there that can embarrass people.

      Oh yeah, agreed 100000%. I've had multiple 4 cylinder cars in the 10s and a 1.8t that was a drag slick away from 10s

      i'd be really happy with mine if the power didn't just go to the front wheels.



      Also, i would love to know why APR doesn't do a GTX kit for the TSI engines. just GT series.
