    APR working on Stage III Audi R8 4.2 V8 FSI supercharger - Eaton TVS1740

    APR announced back in February they would be upgrading their 4.2 FSI supercharger kits to a Stage III offering which would feature the Eaton TVS 1740 blower. This is a seemingly larger supercharger than what they were previously using although still a roots setup. APR previously did not have a supercharger application for the R8 4.2 V8 but with their development on the RS4 and RS5 4.2 V8's they seem to want to tackle the R8 as well.

    The question is, will this be worth it? There are a couple turbo options for the R8 which put out good power and likely much more than this blower will be capable of. VF-Engineering also already has an Eaton based supercharger for the R8 V8 using the larger Eaton TVS 1900. It seems APR's offering will be weaker than all other force induction options on the market.

    Still, this is APR and if the product is priced well and undercuts the absurdly priced VF-Engineering supercharger ($25k) then this may have room on the market as offering good value.

    Wonder how much hp. And yea I would goAPR over VF anyday when it comes to VAG. If I had an R8 though, I'd go TT. Then again people always want their setups for specific reasons. This should be somewhere in 600hp range you think?

    Why would you go TT over supercharging? Just for more boost?

    Depends on the application of what I would want for my car. Most likely I'd TT because safer to get more power out of it than SC. Different powerband though.

    I think it will struggle to break 500 at the wheels. It will be in the 4XX range which is... yawn.

    Much more efficient than a roots supercharger in this application.
