Hello forum members,
My name is ponch, I've been searching the archives for about a week looking for info about the APR stage 3+.
I have a completely stock MK4 GTI (2005) 70K miles, 2nd owner.
I'm considering getting that kit, but I've seen both positive and negative feedback.
It seems like they had some minor issues when they first came out.
Most of the archived posts were from a couple of years ago though.
Anybody still running strong? If so, how many miles on the kit?
My main questions are about the exhaust manifold issues.
Have the problems been addressed?
Do inconel studs and turbo bracket come with the kit now?
Any other concerns I should have?
Thanks in advance

Re: APR (ponch2010)

Running strong after about 45.000km and at about 400 crank powers, no issues with manifold, it was an old problem back when APR was using SS studs, they now use Inconel and did so when i bought my kit about 2 years ago - the car drives better then stock, the kit still looks brand new, manifold even looks new still - its just the most perfect solution - search my name and you will see the progress and all i did to get the 400 crank not to mention info every step of the way - best and most full proff solution.
the user engineerd uses car with APR s3+ kit on the racetrack all the time, he is also running solid...
