APR DTR6054 DIRECT REPLACEMENT TURBO CHARGER SYSTEM AUDI/VW 2.0T EA888 GEN3 TSI TRANSVERSE
The APR DTR6054 is a direct turbocharger replacement for Audi and VW MQB vehicles equipped with the EA888 Gen 3 Engine.
This upgrade includes matching software for various vehicles and mods, and provides up to 491 HP and 425 FT-LBS of torque, depending on vehicle platform and fueling, all while keeping emissions components unmodified. The software supports premium pump fuel grades, race fuel grades, and even Ethanol on the Golf R, S3 and TT S platform with fueling upgrades! For dedicated race cars the turbocharger is designed with plenty of headroom to go even further on your own!
This particular kit includes the DTR6054 turbocharger, all required installation hardware, gaskets, seals and software. You will be required to supply the wastegate and diverter valve from your original turbocharger. The included software must be installed at an authorized APR dealer. NGK-R7437-9 spark plugs are also required for this turbocharger kit (available as an option above).
This is a brand new turbo designed and developed by APR from the ground up. It does not require a core, and there's no additional downtime associated with other upgrade styles. The turbo bolts to the factory location and connects to factory or upgraded components.
Important note* While the hardware in this listing is compatible with your vehicle it is possible that the required tuning is not. To confirm ECU tuning is available for your car, your vehicle's ECU box code must be identified. If you own VAG COM, OBDeleven, Carista, or have access to factory VW/Audi diagnostic tooling, you can follow this guide to identify your ECU box code. You can also visit either New German Performance shop location and our staff will be happy to assist. The customer assumes all risk if this turbocharger purchased and installed without first confirming the required software is available. No returns are accepted for installed turbocharger kits.
Since this turbo was designed from the ground up, and doesn't use any of the factory or factory cloned housings or internals, we had complete control over the design. We've upgraded the CHRA to feature German dual ceramic ball-bearings for smooth and reliable operation with better transient response. This also does away with the failure-prone journal bearing design on the factory turbochargers. Next the compressor cover was upgraded with an appropriate A/R matched to our larger billet aircraft-grade 6061 aluminum 60mm compressor wheel. We've also included a large turbo inlet pipe that perfectly matches the turbo's anti-surge compressor cover and connects directly to your factory or upgraded intake system. We've completely done away with the turbo muffler assembly providing the turbo with a larger outlet and smoother transition. The compressor cover even includes a port for a turbocharger shaft speed sensor should one suit your build.
The turbine side of the turbocharger also benefits from our ground-up design. The turbine housing is cast with 310 stainless steel that's designed to take the heat an abuse seen on a road course. The turbine A/R is perfectly matched to our new nickel-based superalloy K418 54mm turbine wheel. The system will see low exhaust gas temperature, low exhaust back pressure, low turbo discharge temperature, and low shaft speeds because the system has been properly designed from the ground up for the prescribed power levels. Of course, each rotating group is VSR balanced for reliable operation. This all lends well for customers who plan to use this turbo on a dedicated race car as it has the headroom necessary to push the system further on their own.
Each kit includes the complete turbocharger with compressor inlet pipe, compressor outlet hose, t-bolt clamps, gaskets, o-rings, exhaust ring, exhaust v-band, exhaust manifold gasket, new studs, bolts, and washers, all new oil and coolant line o-rings, and our ECU Upgrades for select vehicles. The upgrade uses your factory electronic wastegate and diverter valve, and connects to your factory exhaust, intake, turbo outlet pipe, and oil and coolant lines. This system has seen many road course track days and extensive testing to ensure longevity and reliability of the setup in the harshest of conditions. This setup does not spike torque hard or run on the edge of what the factory rods and pistons have been known to handle, making it as safe on the stock engine as we can for these power levels.

Installation Instructions and Hardware Requirements:
Specific software is required to use this system. Software is included for various vehicles. Software compatibility must be checked before purchase.
Software is available in three formats:
- For use with stock fueling (T4100003)
- For use with an APR HPFP and APR LPFP (T4100003-A) (Golf R/S3/TT S Platform Only)
- For use with an APR HPFP, APR LPFP, and APR MPI Injectors (T4100003-B) (Golf R/S3/TT S Platform Only)
The software installs to your vehicle's factory ECU. Software can only be installed by an Authorized APR dealer.
This system reuses your factory electronic wastegate and electronic diverter valve. To safely achieve the advertised power use an upgraded Intake and Intercooler. To prevent clutch slip use our transmission software or a manual clutch upgrade. Use NGK heat range 9 (NGK-R7437-9) spark plugs gapped to 0.024" ±0.002" or 0.6mm ±0.05mm with a change interval of 10-15,000 mi or 16-24,000 km. Always use a high performance oil with more frequent change intervals.
To fit this system with APR Charge Pipes, please read
If you currently have APR Charge Pipes installed, you will need APR part number MS100213 (available as an option above).
If you do not currently have APR Charge Pipes installed, but would like to install them along with your new DTR turbocharger system, you will need APR part numbers MS100215 and MS100194 (both available as options above).
Factory Engine Limitations
NGP has had extensive experience working with, repairing and building EA888 Gen 3 TSI engines since it released in the US back in 2014. We have found that while many aftermarket turbocharger systems are capable of working on the Gen 3 TSI engine without causing any issues under normal driving conditions, when driven hard there is still a risk of failure in the bottom end (rods, pistons). We have found this to be the case when installing any turbocharger larger than the factory IS38. We highly recommend installing at least new rods when installing any aftermarket turbocharger kit in order to ensure that your engine is capable of fully producing power without issue.
