Kit price $14,999, Installation is $2999 which includes before/after Dyno testing and a twelve month/12,000 mile parts and labor warranty. Clutch upgrade and carbon clean are additional and both recommended. Find us on Facebook at http://facebook.com/futrellautowerks.

ECS Tuning: APR 3.0 TFSI Stage 2+ Supercharger Pulley Upgrade Kit DIY
Available at: http://www.ecstuning.com/ES2214953/?utm_source=Youtube
APR likes to be pioneers in the automotive world and that shows with this new Supercharger Pulley Upgrade, a world first for the 3.0 TFSI motor. This part requires you to have the Stage 1 upgrade before you can upgrade to the pulley with Stage 2. What's the reason for this you might be asking?
Without recalibrating the ECU found in your vehicle, pulley upgrades offer no advantage, as the Supercharger will simply bypass Boost pressure. Yet, with the upgrade, they are able to develop new hardware and calibrate the ECU to work properly as if it was intended by the factory.
When you upgrade the ECU, many expect a massive increase in torque, but that simply isn't the case with these new supercharged motors. The ECU upgrade offers up more power, but if you want insane amounts of torque, this new Supercharger Pulley Upgrade is for you. The gain in torque is felt immediately, but the results are present from beginning to end adding up to 80ft-lbs and 108 horsepower at all four wheels.
Founded in 1997, APR LLC is an automotive engineering firm that currently operates in a 36,000 square foot performance campus in Alabama.

Audi Supercharger Technology
Alongside Exhaust gas turbochargers, Audi also makes use of Superchargers to Boost its engines. A Supercharger is used in the 3.0 TFSI. The high-efficiency mechanical charger is situated in the 90-degree V formed by the cylinder banks and is driven by the engine via a poly-V belt. The gas pathways downstream of the charger are very short, thus the torque develops quickly and easily. The full Boost is available even at idle.
