Bolt on the ability to make big power while retaining your current intake, downpipe, and intercooler with this IS38 turbo kit! This kit includes a brand new IHI IS38 turbocharger from the Golf R and S3 along with all necessary hardware, gaskets, seals and spark plugs to properly install and give your GTI or A3 the legendary power the Golf R and S3 come stock with!

ECU tuning is required to utilize this upgrade and we recommend APRs' IS38 software upgrade which makes up to 386 horsepower and 403 ft/lbs of torque on 93 octane pump gas depending on accompanying mods! The required modifications to run this software are at minimum an upgraded aftermarket downpipe, as well as an upgrade to the colder Denso Iridium IKH24 spark Plugs (Included in this kit). These will be gapped to 0.0024" ±0.002" or 0.6mm ±0.05mm and will require a 10-15,000 mile replacement interval to increase the longevity and safety of your engine.

It is highly recommended to also upgrade your intake, intercooler to achieve the most power and reliability possible. It will also be a possibility to upgrade your clutch depending on the health of your stock unit and your driving habits. DSG owners are also recommended to perform a DSG TCU performance software upgrade which we again recommend APRs' DQ250 TCU Upgrade.
