  • APR's EA888 2.0T Stage III Garret GTX2867R turbo kit hits over 400 horsepower to the wheels

    Another day another great product from APR for the VW/Audi scene. APR released their 1st gen Stage III turbo upgrade for the EA888 based 2.0T motors. This turbo kit utilizes a Garret GTX2867R and there is a large performance increase to say the last. On 93 octane pump gas output goes from the stock 194 wheel horsepower to 376 wheel horsepower for an increase of 182 horsepower at the wheels. Yep, that is a healthy bump.


    The 100 octane numbers are even more impressive as a race gas tune nets 412 horsepower at the wheels. Keep in mind this is achieved on the stock fuel system. APR is basically doubling the output the fuel system was designed for they state to get more than this their upcoming direct injection fuel system upgrade will be necessary.

    The full turbo kit costs $4,859.99 which considering APR's engineering and reliability is tough to argue with. The supported platforms are listed below along with the dynographs. Great work from APR as usual.

      This is a gen 1 kit. Gen 3 ea888 are not even in the US yet. These kits won't work on those engines.

      Oops not 100% up to speed on the VAG engine codes. I meant the motor that's in the S3/TT-s with the Stage 3 APR

      Their new desktop site is a bit rough to navigate compared to their old site, difficult to find. I pulled it up on the mobile site, it's under features

      Same here... I know the vw/audi 2.0t has been around for nearly a decade with a few revisions, but I'm not sure what they were and when they happened.... anyone care to drop some knowledge?

      That can be a length topic.

      Basics: 2004? (maybe 2003) the 2.0FSI engine was around (ea113). This was a Fuel Stratified Injection (direct injection) engine. For usage in higher performance vehicles VW turbocharged it (2.0T FSI).

      for the 2008.5 production VW used the new EA888 engine (2.0TSI) This using the same fueling and cylinder spacing, but there are a lot of differences, notably a chain driven cam as opposed to the problem plagued belt in the EA113. Also has strong rods/pistons, better fueling system..


      I can't recall offhand what the second Gen EA888 updated. This had a briefish run.

      The EA888 Gen 3 engine is what will be in the new Mk7 GTI and similar performance based vehicles sees major updates such as the integration of the Exhaust manifold into the block.

      You can check out VW's wiki page to get the mechanical gist of things.
