HPA 20th Anniversary single turbo kit RELEASED

Since the debut of the 3.2VR6, my team at HPA has been there with our twin turbo and single turbo programs. We have pushed the imagination of the Enthusiast and challenged the top sports cars on the worldwide stage. The VW Vortex community has been there alongside our crew.

Looking at the calendar, it is tough for me to imagine it has been 20 years since I started HPA. However, when I look at my desk and see the pictures of my three kids I realize that I have grown up living and breathing Volkswagen.

The 20th anniversary edition single turbo package is like a 4th child and I am terribly proud of its release…

We have worked very hard to optimize our production methods and consolidate our performance targets to realize a technology-packed offering at a great value.



Central to this 20th Anniversary Edition turbo kit will be a state-of-the-art intake manifold with integrated air-to-water charge cooler.

In a bold move, HPA has shifted away from the Garrett Turbo cartridge for this newest single turbo offering. The 20th Anniversary turbo kits will be outfit with the latest in turbo technology drawing from the first production run of Borg Warner’s NEW single scroll EFR turbo.

The main reason for the shift in turbo manufacturers was the advantages in Borg Warner’s Gamma-Ti turbine wheels and dual ceramic ball bearing design. This new turbine rotor has extremely low inertia; requiring less time for the turbo to spool up. Combining the EFR’s breakthrough in turbo responsiveness with HPA’s new integrated air to water intake manifold will generate the most durable, responsive and expandable turbo kit yet.

The base packages will ship configured for 400hp and are configurable to 500 hp with basic upgrades to exhaust, DSG and fuel systems etc.

The HPA 20th Anniversary 400hp single turbo package is priced at $ 9,999

Applications: 3.2L VR6: 2004/2008 R32, 04-05 TT, 08-09 TT, 06-09 A3

Package Includes:

• HPA integrated air to water Cast Intake Manifold
• Complete air to water cooling system
• HPA cast exhaust manifold with integrated O2 Bungs and heat shields
• Borg Warner EFR 7670 dual ceramic ball bearing turbo
• 500mL Injectors - Mk5 includes return fuel system
• Compression reducing head spacer with bolts
• 70mm downpipe
• Proprietary Engine software


This 20 kit serialized production run will be the ultimate one stop package and in true HPA fashion will include everything you will need to wheel your prized 3.2L out of the garage as a fire breathing FI monster.

If you have had forced induction on your mind, this will be your opportunity to seize a piece of history while retrofitting your 3.2L with the latest and greatest in hardware. Give us a call at 604-598-8520 or email [email protected] if you are interested in snapping up one of these 20 limited packages.

We have a new man behind the desk at HPA… Keir has now joined Darryl and together, this duo will do their very best to follow up on your questions and concerns.

Why the change from the twin scroll to the single scroll?
The twin Scroll are still not even produced and when they finally do come out, they will have a T4 flange instead of the T3 our manifolds are configured for. We would have to redesign the entire exhaust manifold to mate to this massive turbine and keep it off the A/C lines.

Gotcha, I just looked at the sheet and didn't notice all the twin scrolls were T4 flanged. But honestly with the features on this turbo, I doubt the twin scroll would really be needed as I think the spool will be just good as good.

When are you gonna post a dyno chart? What about one overlapping my FT425?

Seems like a great product and I wish I had the extra 10 grand laying around to give it a run. Seriously though, $9,999? why not call it $10,000?

Life is complicated enough as it is :laugh:
Because when the first release was put out it said they were going to offer it for under $10,000, that price makes them keep to their word, but we all know it is a $12K+ project in the end

Wish I had a real job though to blow my money on this

Crazy busy 2 weeks….

Sorry I have been personally off the forums. My house was hit with a 10 day flu bug just in time for my kids’ Spring Break to come in… needless to say, we never left the house!

We hope to have initial dyno plots prior to our trip into Hong Kong at the end of next week. We have upgrade paths in line for all our current FT owners. Once this 20th ann. program is shipping, we will expand our FI parts offerings in the web.

Last year we benchmarked our FT offerings on our AWD Superflow. This 20th ann package will mirror the range of our FT425-FT495 offerings as the basic parameters have not changed that much. We will pick up more at both the bottom end and top end due to the added efficiency of both our boost track and the new turbine wheel. This should give you something to chew on.



Update on the 20th,

Back at the shop, our team had working with a SLA plastic model for the past several weeks to develop our packaging, and finally took delivery of the first working production Borg Warner turbine. What a beauty! With the plastic model removed and the final touches on the plumbing being completed, we hope to be up one the rollers with this new package by the middle of next week.






The team also re worked the OEM exhaust with our CVP mid muffler and plumbed in an extra bypass. Now we have some flow!



2 weeks into our pre-orders and we are seeing some nice East to West coverage.
We are really looking forward to the installation reviews as our new owners take delivery of this new package.
