APR Stage 3+ MK7 Golf R Transformation | 1

Win on Sunday sell on Monday, this used to be the mantra of the sales and marketing people of the good ol’ muscle car era.

Now we have, Buy on Monday, Race by Sunday. Say hello to the APR Stage 3+ MK7 Golf R.

 

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 APR Stage 3+ Turbo kit and Fueling Upgrade.

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.

Every nut and bolt that gets removed or touched during install gets paint marked as an indication of it being properly fastened and torqued. One small step that RSW takes to keep potential mistakes to a minimum!

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.

Here you can see the exhaust housing, the two bulges showing the twin scrolls that feed the exhaust gas to the turbine wheel, and the wastegate actuator that regulates boost levels.

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!
