    • Another Golf with a 2.5 TFSI swap - MKVII Golf R with TTE700 2.5 TFSI turbo runs a tuned AMG GT R and 650 hp Audi RS3 in the 1/2 mile

      This Golf engine swap is becoming more and more popular and why should it not? The 2.5 TFSI fits and works with the MKVII electronics and DSG transmission assuming you have a competent tuner. Just last week a MKVI Golf R with a 2.5 TFSI swap was posted.


      That MKVI ran a TTE500 turbocharger and this MKVII has a TTE700 turbocharger and it is considerably faster.

      It runs a tuned AMG GT-R in the video below. The Golf R catches the GT R sleeping but it does not matter as it is over 1.6 seconds quicker in the 1/2 mile. The trap speed is 271.28 kph (168.56 mph) to 250.52 kph for the GT R.

      The Golf R rips the RS3 a new one as well with a 2.1 second quicker 1/2 mile sprint. The trap speed battle is close though with the Golf R turning a 261.43 kph trap compared to the RS3's 257.14.

      A very strong Golf!
