    APR building a Super Beetle, transforming a new Beetle into a 6-speed all wheel drive 500 horse monster - 2.0 Engine Build

    APR does amazing work in the VW and Audi world. They are showcasing it with an absolutely awesome build for the newly released VW Beetle which they will be adding all wheel drive to, a 6-speed manual transmission, and an APR Stage IV build to the 2.0 turbo four-cylinder for over 500 horsepower. The goal is to build a high performance Beetle much in the same way VW would using VW parts from the Golf R.

    This update concerns the build of the 2.0 EA888 2.0T that comes with the stock beetle in a 200 horse state of tune. This motor will receive a full build bottom end with .5 mm overbore. Forged rods, pistons, ported head, upgraded fuel system, the works.

    - APR High Pressure Fuel Pump
    - APR Low Pressure Fueling System
    - APR Rail Pressure Release Valve

    Turbo used is a Garrett GTX2867R chosen for its quick low end spool and high end breathing. It will be mated to a custom manifold with new oil and coolant lines along with new boost and vacuum reference lines:

    I doubt we will see many of these out there, this is just a one-off show piece.

    Woah. So this is pretty much the first TSI stage 4 build. Get lots of info for this Sticky, it can bring attention to this forum. Make sure you tag TSI engine as this is BIG.

    It's already posted on other forums as well but I'll do it. It's a badass build.

    I think the biggest downside is I believe they are using a t25 flange, kind of caps you on turbo possibilities.

    But it works with the turbo they chose...

    you're absolutely right. And going for ~500WHP, they chose a great set up.

    I was just stating as a kit to be sold to the public, it would be hard to justify going for the Stage 4 kit if you already had Stage 3+. Same turbo/manifold, stage 3+ just needs the LPFP and HPFP to get to the 500WHP range and max the t25 turbo out.

    Of course it wouldn't be surprising if APR did NOT sell the HPFP and LPFP separately (they don't sell the injectors by themselves, just through their Stage 3+ kit). There are other non-apr BT guys out there with a t3 set up, so if they can get their hands on the LPFP and HPFP, there is definitely potential for these cars to see the 600WHP range. Which is, IMO exciting, even if I would never go that route.

    Still there are adapters available for changing the flange. Some downpipe adjustments would probably need to be made because of the 1" movement of the turbo. Not really easy though but that's going up in the 600whp range as you stated lol. The hpfp and lpfp will most likely only be sold with stage 4 kit. I believe all stage 4 kits you have to send your engine to APR for them to build it. I remember one guy in Israel flew like 2 of them out to build it there cause I guess it would have been cheaper or something. I don't even know.
