Wow that was hard to read...

The words you are looking for are "FORCED INDUCTION"

MTM has the only kit in production right now for $30k+

I think the MTM kit is actually close to $40K but there is supposedly a cheaper option forthcoming from VF Engineering:

You always go custom turbo as well.

Custome tune/exhaust/downpipes/air filter will net you around 390HP IMHO
Yea, I had heard of "thoughts" of the VF kit, but I said the only one in PRODUCTION right now. I hope VF releases it. I would buy their kit for around $10k without a doubt.

A good custom turbo setup should be able to yield higher than 390hp, its a V8 so displacement is not a problem, this motor could spool a larger turbo with ease. Obviously its a lot more complicated than that, but as far as power goes, you could make some good power with a turbo setup. It would cost an arm and a leg in fabrication and tuning though.

We are aiming for 380 bhp if you are interested?

We are developing a carbon fibre induction kit coupled with Capristo exhaust, super + fuel and remap, I know its 100 bhp short of MTM kit but also the price is!

Likely to cost £3800!

:cheers:

LOL. That was an excruciating read.

MTM supercharger for $40K before installation. Others rumored to be in development, but my understanding is that the 4.2FSI is finnicky and doesn't like forced induction.

Don't turbo it, either; the engine and engine bay aren't designed for it (cooling, packaging).

380bhp? So only a 26hp increase over stock? For forced induction that doesnt seem like that great of a setup...unless I am missing something here. A well designed supercharger kit should add more than that. Especially since the exhaust alone frees up most of that power...

anyone in La area did custom tuning? where? how much gain? how must cost? void warranty?
IIRC, FarnbacherLoles was going to partner with a shop out West to do the software install of their tune for folks out there. You may want to drop them an e-mail ([email protected]). My car goes back in for a retune in the next couple of weeks!

Fair enough, it could be miss interpreted quite easily I guess, they didnt specifically mention cold air intake but I'm 100% sure thats what he means with the gains quoted.
