Congrats Beaker... you will love it had this turbo for few months and Iím loving it. The only downside as far as I can see the fuel gauge...the needle will drop down infront of your eyes with few hits ..stage 3 is a thirsty beast

My guess, either the APR kit left a bit with the EFR7163 or the Revo information is incorrect.

Iíd be happy to fill everyone in when I get this all setup. There are so many good options out there to choose from. This one just seemed like to best fit for me. I was really hoping to find a tuner that offered a turbo and tune which Revo had. This will be my fourth different Tuning software on this car so it will be interesting to see how it feels when done. Iím pretty excited for this to go in. Hopefully we will start the install next week. Just waiting for the HPFP and I decided to do the front sways, motor mounts and charge pipes all at the same time.

There is a lot to be said about a company that invest hundreds of hours in testing and development so you don't have to.


This was a huge swaying factor for me personally. Not a desire to or mine to blaze a trail. Only time will tell, but Iím hopeful.

I guess the more cars that are out there the better results they will have and the more data too. I ordered the Autotech HPFP to go with the kit.

I think I am pulling the trigger on the same setup. Same shop, too. Smalltimore.

So there'll be a manual and a DSG twins running around.

Which shop you going with? I've been looking into this turbo too and noticed a shop in Dundalk is a Revo dealer. With the turbo swap option, does it come with the tune? I assume regardless of that, the DSG tune is separate.

I went with Country Dubs. Give them a call. They are the ones doing the install and tune for me. It does not come with a tune but you can do a trade in which saves a bundle.
