6-Speed manual 2012 Volkswagen MKVI Golf R runs 12.1@117 with APR Stage 3 100 octane beta tuned kit - Timeslip + video
Here is a very impressive 1/4 mile run from a MKVI Volkswagen Golf R. The car has the APR Stage 3 turbo upgrade kit along with the APR intercooler and APR turbo back RSC exhaust with cats and resonators deleted. The 6-speed car managed a very impressive 12.1@117 meaning in better weather it could likely break into the 11's. The timeslip and accompanying run video are below, very impressive.
This car was running a 100 octane beta tune from APR with race gas.

Don't quote me on this but a turbo upgrade, ecu tune, manifold, and associated hardware. I think bigger injectors as well.
I need to study up on my VW's.

The stage 3 for this particular engine includes:
all for $6,867.00, or $6,260.40 while APR has their seasonal sales
Plus the cost of a "recommended" engine build, especially if you want to run 100oct.
Also, just to clarify the MK6 Golf R uses the older FSI engine, while the MK6 GTI uses the TSI engine, which is a stronger engine, however the FSI has fueling solutions such as the HPFP that the TSI currently doesn't.

While some FSI engines are making over 550, if not more (unfortunately my '12 is my first VW so i'm a little unfamiliar with power numbers of the FSI engine, but I've seen some 550-560 cars.)
I agree the FSI and TSI is confusing, overall the TSI is the better engine with a lot less problems, but right now the fueling limits are an issue...unless you're one of the 2 people who have tuners coming up with "solutions" to make much more WHP then everyone else.

Then the 2008.5 and on MKV and of course the MK6 all had the 2.0 TSI engine.
Now this is where it gets confusing. Audi refers to their new 2.0T as a TFSI engine (found in the B8 models of the A4 and A5) from what I recall the TFSI and TSI are fairly similar, with the Audi TFSI engine having "valve lift" and coming stock from the factory making more rated hp and tq.
The new Mk7 GTI will have the Audi TFSI that would be coming out of the S3.
unfortunately outside of wiki I can't really find a good list of engines. Here is a good post on the audiboost forum that has a section on TSI vs. FSI and how the TSI is the better engine.
