    A3 3.2 supercharged?

    VF engineering in the US (yes eventhough they dont hav the new A3 yet) are testing a supercharger on the V6 [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif[/img]
    They have the car for 3 months only but they already developped stage 2 on the golf R32 which gave them around 65bhp increase! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/groovy.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/froggie_red.gif[/img]
    Just as a comparison here are the dynos (at the wheels) of the R32 stock and modified
    Dyno of standard A3 V6 in next post

    Im waiting for someone to do the HGP-Turbo.de bi-turbo conversion for the R32 on an A3 3.2! Now THAT would be interesting! How much is the VF? bet its probably not really worth it. Thing is with superchargers, theres little you can do once fitted to get power increases.

    Yes you can always get more
    but I am sure that 300 bhp should be enough for most of us [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif[/img]
    For the price well their website says $5200 ($4500 for US) for stage 1 that take them to 320hp
    I think that just installing a supercharger and its software and getting close to this number, that would do me nicely
