APR’s Transverse 2.0T FSI Audi S3 Engine Conversion Packages will upgrade your current 147kw and 280Nm Transverse 2.0T FSI Engine with all of the necessary OEM components from the Audi S3 along with APR’s FSI High Pressure Fuel Pump and meticulously recalibrated Engine Management to produce 237kw and 453Nm on 98 RON petrol, or 260kw and 498Nm of torque on 104 RON race fuel.
APR Engine Mount Insert for 2.0T Transverse: The APR Torque Arm Mount Insert is inserted to the existing engine mount, which greatly reduces driveline shock and drivetrain slack, resulting in improved power transfer. It also enhances upshifting and downshifting
While modifying the 2.0T FSI engine beyond factory power levels, it became quickly apparent that an additional volume of high-pressure fuel was needed to make horsepower, especially in the midrange (3000-5000rpm) of the powerband. To understand why this fuel is needed for the midrange, one must first understand how the fuel delivery system works in the 2.0T.
