Hi all

I have been looking at going the BT way.
I have seen some great stuff of the guys running the IS38.
I just want to know what els is on the market for straight bold on other than the IS38 ?

CTS make up a BOSS500 and BOSS600 kits for direct bolt on for MQB TSi.
APR make up a stage 3+ package using the EFR series turbos.

Also the Hybrid options from local and international tuners are all good turbos.

Thanks will have a look at it. Don't think i will get traction with a boss 500 on a GTI

Is38 makes very decent power on the G7s. BT may be awesome but wheelspin will be insane.

Traction in a STOCK MK7.5 GTi PP is an issue. With over a hundred and fifty extra HP on an IS38 it must be insane.

7.5 pp?

Wasn’t the performance pack only pre-facelift?

Well not really i have been in a mk7 GTI with IS38 on and traction is not so bad.

Well if the software is written properly its a walk in the park.
We drove in the rain with traction control on and did not break any traction till 3rd gear.
It has to do with torque limiting in 1st and 2nd gear.
