TTE500+ Upgrade Performance Turbocharger 2.5 TFSI TTRS / RS3 / RSQ3

Introducing our TTE500+ performance turbocharger, Including a CNC matched and ported OE intake pipe for the 2.5 TFSI motor. Based on the original turbocharger but upgraded to new higher output specification. Offering The Complete Ultra Plug & Play Upgrade to over 500PS.

Engineered & Enhanced

At the core of our TTE500+ is a much larger TTE compressor wheel, chosen because it is highly efficient and creates an extremely high flow for comparative size. Re-Profiled compressor cover to optimised tolerance to ensure maximum compressor efficiency is given.

We CNC mill the exhaust turbine housing to accept a larger 9 Blade turbine and shaft.

Attention is given to CNC port the exhaust runners at the flange to match and smooth the transition from head to exhaust runner for maximum gas speed and so improving efficiency to the bigger turbine.

Special profile 360 deg high-performance motorsport journal bearing is fitted, to remain durable at higher loads with no loss in transient response. The actuator used is uprated sprung OE unit, fitted with our reinforced clamps for trouble-free operation. This also can also be modified to customer needs and specifications.

The intake pipe included with this upgrade has been CNC milled and hand finished to match and smooth the transition to the larger compressor inlet opening to lower turbulence and maximise velocity, this is sealed to the compressor cover by a Viton rubber o-ring for a constant dependable seal.


Precisely balancing our turbochargers is a key critical factor to become a TTE upgrade unit as longevity and performance are paramount. Good balance improves acoustics also. Subsequent great care is taken with all TTE turbochargers to achieving our balance standards. Firstly parts are balanced at slow speeds up to 2800RPM in multiple planes using our single parts machine, then components are assembled and then the CHRA are dynamically balanced, but this time depending on application at up to 250,000 RPM in multiple planes using our in-house VSR machine to acquire the ultimate equilibrium, to a standard far higher than OEM. Each turbocharger is supplied with serial numbered balance test result document.

Result from SL-tuning

521PS/ 725 NM
At 3000 RPM, we are already at 500+ NM at 7000 RPM near also 500 NM

Following setup:
Original down pipe without pre cat
Original Exhaust System
TTE500 Turbocharger
90 mm Inlet
Aral ultimate102
Vehicle is currently 100-200 in 7,7-8,1 seconds....
Next, is a upgrade HPFP

Aoon's Audi RS3 8V has the TTE500 Turbo, large intake pipe, decat, Stock catback, Stock airbox, Forge FMIC.

With the MRC Stage3 Remap it did 506ps and 628nm on 99 ron fuel

On higher octane fuel but the 99ron tune it did 531ps 653nm

506ps is a little low considering there's some nice mods on this car?
Maybe look at a bigger intake and bigger exhaust? And HPFP

Its not low but I think more accurate TBH and average. The turbo after all is 500ps unit.. Any more bonus and much to do with package. Need to remember to get 500 few years back you needed everything and more. Stock exhaust and stock airbox are limiting the number a bit too i feel.
