APR 3.0 TFSI Supercharger Drive and Crank Pulley Upgrade


APR presents the 3.0 TFSI Supercharger Drive and Crank Pulley Upgrades.

APR’s Supercharger Drive and Crank Pulley Upgrades dramatically increase horsepower and torque by increasing the rotational speed of the factory supercharger. APR’s Stage II Pulley ECU Upgrade makes the necessary engine management adjustments to handle the increased supercharger speeds, and in turn allows the engine to create more power. The pulleys are sold separately, allowing for multiple levels of performance, each of which builds upon the other. Finally, when combined with APR’s Ultracharger Throttle Body Upgrade in a dual pulley setup, the system is alleviated of power robbing inlet restrictions, allowing the engine to achieve exciting new levels of performance!

APR has chosen not to cut any corners and as such each APR Supercharger Pulley Upgrade Kit includes a new supercharger belt. Furthermore, all existing APR Stage I ECU Upgrade customers are entitled to a free APR Stage II+ ECU Upgrade required for proper functionality. Finally, every APR Pulley is E-Coated black for an OEM appearance.

Important Notes:
* Please check your original supercharger pulley. This will only suit the ‘Slip On’ supercharger pulley type.
* If your car has the ‘Bolt On’ supercharger pulley, This item is not compatible.

Upgrading both the supercharger drive and crank pulleys results in the factory supercharger spinning ~26.4% faster than stock. This speed was chosen after extensive engine and chassis dyno testing with various pulley sizes and supercharger speeds. The result is an even higher horsepower and torque gain across the entire RPM range. However, at the airflow levels achieved with a dual pulley setup, maximum power is severely restricted by the factory throttle body unit. The APR Ultracharger Throttle Body Upgrade is necessary to take full advantage of the dual pulley configuration.

APR’s Stage II ECU Upgrade is designed for use with each pulley upgrade and only needs to be purchased once. The upgrade builds upon the APR Stage I ECU Upgrade, reconfiguring the engine management system to work in conjunction with the higher boost pressure and airflow levels achieved by spinning the supercharger faster. The Stage I ECU Upgrade is required to purchase the Stage II ECU Upgrade.

This product is designed for use with APR’s S Tronic TCU Upgrade, NGK BKR9EIX plugs gapped @ .024” +/- .002” torqued to 30Nm and a new supercharger belt. The APR Coolant Performance System is highly recommended and required with the dual pulley setup. IAT’s must be below 75c to achieve the advertised power figures. A high flow intake system is highly recommended and is required to meet the advertised power figures on the A4/A5/S4/S5/Q5/SQ5. For the best results, APR recommends removing the intake snow screen.
