There’s no denying that the third-generation (EA888) VAG 2.0TSI engine, the one you find in the likes of the Golf Mk7, 8S Audi TT, Audi S3 8V and SEAT Leon Cupra 5F, is a work of engineering genius. But we all know what the best type of power is, right? Yep, MORE power.

Well, this new turbo is the culmination of two years of development from VAG experts Revo and could see you hitting the magical 500bhp mark sooner than you might think. Best of all too, there’s no messing about with custom manifolds or exhausts to make it fit, or having to break open the engine and forge the internals!

As this item uses the stock housing with some rather fancy uprated internals (including a billet compressor wheel and uprated turbine wheel and shaft, integrated recirculation system and turbo muffler delete), the IS38ETR is a straight swap for the OEM item.

So, with just a few supporting upgrades (like an exhaust, induction kit and intercooler), and spot of software fettling, you can be blowing away supercars in hardly any time at all. Revo’s own Golf R was used for the development stuff and it consistently does 3.2sec 0-60s. Who doesn’t need some of that in their life?
