Engineering and experience
A decade devoted to tuning the narrow angle VR6 was kicked off with our twin turbo 4-motion converted New Beetles. Next came our twin turbo packages for the 3.2L motor with the release of the R32, and in 2005 the FT line of single turbos was added to our repertoire. 2007, our CVP intake manifold furthered this program by introducing air-to-water intercooling, followed by packages for the Mk5 chassis. Our EFR Edition is a culmination of all our technical experiences, and offers a stop and go daily commuter that will transform every driving experience into a thrill ride with no compromises.
We have been fortunate to have partnered at an early stage with strong organizations in Germany such as HGP and KW. Through their experiences on the autobahn and famous race tracks like the Nordschleife, we have been able to lead our manufacturing with materials and focus which would ensure the highest rate of durability and functionality.
More than just a turbo “kit”, the EFR Edition Single Turbo System is engineered to exact specifications for each application and includes absolutely everything needed for your technician to install.
The lengthy list of components that go into each and every built to order turbo system includes several proprietary developments that set HPA turbo kits apart from the rest:
Integrated liquid cooled cast intake manifold is an all in one design specific solution that takes the workload off the turbo; lowering EGT's and affording more ignition in the software maps yielding best in market throttle response and performance. In daily stop and go, no other after cooling solution is as effective as the air to water in generating a cool and steady intake temp.
Velocity Tuned Exhaust manifolds are cast from the highest quality materials. Our manifolds retain the CRITICAL orientation and placement of the engine's Oxygen sensors to ensure correct fuel calibrations and DSG-> engine communications. Our exhaust manifolds will deliver instant throttle response while insulating and dispersing generated heat. There are NO design short cuts with this Manifold!
Borg Warner EFR Turbocharger with Gamma-Ti Turbine Wheels and Dual Ceramic Ball Bearing Design.
Custom Stainless Heat shields direct the flow of heat down the firewall into the safe suction zone reducing under hood air temps and ensuring peripheral hardware is not subject to heat stress.
Performance engine software ensures oem like daily drivability is retained while adaptive calibrations adjust ignition and fuel maps for ambient temperature, octane, and load changes (28mpg on hwy cruising).
Modular design of the Full Throttle (FT) and Full Throttle eXtreme (FTX) turbo kits allow you to upgrade your system as your appetite for power grows.
DTM (350hp) / FT-410 (410hp) / FT-470 (470hp)
HPA's entry level Full Throttle package will transform your 3.2 VR6 into a World Class performance car. Our integrated liquid cooled intake manifold delivers the most efficient boost track on the market. The Borg Warner EFR Single Scroll 7670 turbo delivers immediate throttle response with an endless acceleration throughout the power band. The Direct To Manifold (DTM) turbo kit delivers 360+ ft-lbs torque and 350+ hp under 7 pounds of boost and is the perfect way to whet your appetite for power. Upgrade your system to 410hp by adding our Liquid Cooled Intake Manifold with Air-to-Water intercooler, and a variety of support parts, to jump up to the 470 hp range.
FTX-450 (450hp) / FTX-500 (535hp) / FTX-600 (630hp)
HPA's Full Throttle EXTREME turbo systems feature Borg Warner's EFR 8374 which delivers instant throttle response and supports multiple boost settings. Under 20 psi this system delivers 500+ ft-lbs torque and 500+ hp, and by massaging the block and upgrading a variety of support parts, the HPA team has achieved proven power figures in the 600 range for exhilarating acceleration.
