HGP has a hybrid in the pipe too for mk8 iirc. Should see it out "soon".

This is a hybrid of the MK8 R's turbo, who is going first?
Found it on another forum, will be interesting if we can swap

GTI option too:

might be more fun for possibly quicker spool?
Was the cost posted somewhere?
The IS38 based products from them are around 2500-3000 which leads me to think this is not going to be cost effective.

I'm sure everyone in North America will have a solution like they do for the MK7. Found the Europe options are quite expensive in general for other mods.

Likely when supply chain / MK8 R shows up in larger quantities

I think one issue that'll hold back Mk8 R based hybrids from being installed on the Mk7 is the diverter valve relocation. But nonetheless I'm waiting to see when it spools.

Yeah relocating the dv will be annoying. An oem or aftermarket mk8r cold side charge pipe and dv extension harness shouldn't be too hard to find. They do make dv relocation kits for mk5/6 gti motors (https://www.getunitronic.com/parts/intercoolers/20l-tsi-gen1-dv-relocation-kit) so there is a possibility that they'll make them for mk7/8s.
