Liquid Cooled Intake Manifold



HPA's state of the art cast short runner intake manifold with integrated air-to-water intercooler brings OEM and Aftermarket one step closer together. Designed as an all-in-one unit, this intake will offer the shortest intercooled boost track possible for any FI application on the 3.2 VR6.

This all-aluminum air-to-liquid system works by transferring the charge air heat (from turbocharger or supercharger) to a liquid coolant, which is then pumped through a remotely located heat exchanger, where ambient cooling air removes the heat.



Ideal for daily driving, stop and go, or track usage, this liquid cooled short runner intake assembly allows you to tune the 3.2 VR6 around a consistent intake temperature, maximizing your HP and Torque potential. The cooler core is rated for 700hp.

A more detailed description of HPA's Integrated Liquid Cooled Intake Manifold can be found here.


CVP Intake Manifold



CVP manifolds can be configured for any FI or NA application. With only a few bolts, the modular design of the CVP intake manifold allows for easy expansion or re-configuration as your project car evolves.

Available in three configurations to best suit the unique packaging constraints of your project car, the CVP is in ALL arrangements a “Short Runner” intake manifold. FI applications can use the long neck, to maintain the factory throttle body position or use the left or right short neck to position the throttle body closer to the intercooler for shorter boost travel and improved responsiveness.

Additional details on HPA's CVP Intake Manifold can be found here.


Race Grade Con Rod Bearings



HPA's Race Grade Connecting Rod Bearings upgrade the only weak link on the 2.8L and 3.2L V6 motors.

Developed for use in all our high output twin turbo systems, these race grade parts dramatically reduce bearing wear and improve fatigue strength offering a solid bottom end for the performance enthusiast. A must have for forced induction cars…these connecting rod bearings have been proven up to 650hp.

Sold as a complete set of 12 bearings - including high tensile ARP fastening hardware.

More information on HPA's Race Grade Con Rod Bearings can be found here.


Charge Air Cooling Kit



HPA’s Charge Air Cooling Kit features an in-house manufactured radiator and proprietarily configured water pump, all designed to package neatly behind the OEM Euro or US bumpers.

Our radiators feature all-aluminum construction resulting in lighter weight and improved heat transfer over traditional brass cores. This construction eliminates epoxy joints that can break down with vibration and age, causing leaks. The tube-and-fin design keeps optimal air flow through and onto your radiator, while providing maximum heat exchange for the charge cooler liquid.

Included with the Charge Air Cooling Kit:
  • Radiator
  • Water Pump
  • Relay w/Connector
  • Plumbing
  • Water Drain


Charge Air Cooling Install Kit



HPA’s CAD-designed installation brackets allow for model specific fitment of the front mount radiator and water pump. Our aluminum constructed water reservoir has been designed to incorporate into your engine bay with an OEM feel.

Included with the Charge Air Cooling Install Kit:
  • Reservoir
  • Reservoir Brackets
  • Charge Air Cooler Radiator Bracket
  • Pump Bracket

Additional information on HPA's Charge Air Cooling Kits and installation hardware can be found here.


Fuel Conversion Kits

Mk4 Fuel kit
Applications: Mk4 VW R32, Mk1 Audi TT



HPA’s inline Mk4 fuel pump kit includes our laser cut and CNC bent mounting bracket, fuel filter and high flow Walbro fuel pump. The electrical relay and harness ensure that the correct voltage is supplied. All the OEM fasteners are included to ensure a perfect integration with your factory fuel system.

Additional information on HPA's Fuel Conversion Kits can be found here.


3.2L Exhaust Manifold



Cast with a high nickel content for proper thermal dynamics, the HPA Exhaust Manifold has realized HP figures of 500+ on our current turbo kits.

The divided chambers within the exhaust manifold are a critical part of the HPA design, maintaining the integrity of the independent Oxygen Sensor readings (One O2 sensor manages two hot rear cylinders and one cool front cylinder, while the other O2 sensor manages two cool front cylinders and one hot rear cylinder). These cylinder separations allow the Oxygen Sensors to deliver the correct fuel trim offsets to the ECU.

Additional information on HPA's 3.2L Exhaust Manifold can be found here.


Compression Reduction Kit



For high boost/HP applications, HPA’s kit reduces compression to 7:1, allowing tuners to optimize ignition maps for varying fuel quality and octane grades. Laser cut and precision ground, our steel head plates ensure perfect fitment. The lengthened timing chain is held under tension with our upgraded piston assembly, where HPA has integrated a clean oil source pick up for your turbo or supercharger hardware.

A set of OEM head gaskets together with head bolts provide everything you need to complete your long block build.

Included with the Compression Reduction Kit:
  • Steel Head Spacer
  • OEM Head Gaskets
  • OEM Head Bolts
  • Oil Feed Pick Up Fitting / Line
  • Tensioner Piston
  • Lengthened OEM Timing Chain

3.2 VR6 ECU Programming



The HPA methodology of performance programming involves utilizing the adaptive environment of the factory VW/ Audi programming which is capable of analyzing and reacting to changes in fuel, temperature, air flow, etc.

Rather than creating a tune with fixed variables that overwrites the built in factory safety nets as most tuners do, each HPA tune is custom calibrated per vehicle using the factory Hex and A2L files.

Working in-house on a state of the art Superflow all-wheel drive rolling road simulator, the team at HPA runs each calibration set through a series of rigorous evaluations ensuring maximum performance is realized while all safety limits are in tact.

3.2 VR6 Stage 1 Tune
Applications: Mk4/Mk5 VW R32, Mk1/Mk2 Audi TT, Audi A3 (8P)

  • Increase of 20 HP
  • Increase of 25 ft-lbs of Torque
  • Volkswagen factory safety limiters retained
  • Able to self-adjust timing and fuel for different fuel grades. No "switchable" program needed
  • Developed on our Superflow AWD dyno and tested on the road for peak performance and ultimate drivability
  • Zone specific tunes for optimum timing calibration
  • Flash available at any of our dealers or through the loaner tool program

For tuning requirements beyond Stage 1, contact HPA directly for pricing and performance results.

Its great to see HPA offering up these products in an "a la carte" environment for the enthusiasts. Everyone deserves access to this hardware.
Saving all the money necessary to buy a complete HPA setup can be prohibitive for some. Being able to buy these components as time and money permits is a great way for those people to get their rides to where they want them without breaking the bank.

Having run most everything in the HPA catalog at one time or another on my car, I can attest to the excellent quality of the components. Ten years on and my cars still starts every time and the hardware has never missed a beat.

The Air to Water system is fantastic, especially in hotter climates.

I have never second guessed my decision to put HPA hardware on my car.

Do you not offer the compression reduction kit with a more reasonable ratio than 7:1?!?
That's a little ridiculous... something like 9:1 would be great:thumbup:

No offense, but we are approaching 25 years in business at HPA.

We built (and tuned) our first Mk4 R32 in 2002, 18 months before the car was even released in North America.

Some samples of our work.

How about the R32 we have featured in Gran Turismo?

:rolleyes:
I don't care when you started or how long you've been doing it. this is physics, simple. 7:1 will have HORRIBLE off boost response, with a decent tune you can run nearly 30 psi on 9:1, w 93 oct.

so why soooo low? the point of a spacer is to give you more head room before internals are req'd, there is no need for a comp ratio that low

Ask these guys about their boost response:

Rob's TT HPA Turbo Build

CARMA EFR Turbo Build

Poayjay Build Thread

Two different philosophies I suppose...personally, I'm thrilled to hear from our turbo kit owners when they tell me they just hit 100000 miles post kit install.

I'm also happy to see the looks on people's faces when we drive our Texas Mile track cars to Texas from HPA (2000 miles) through the desert (105F)...would love to see that on these 30psi builds...:)

im not looking for build threads, I want to know what NECESSITATES such a low compression ratio when there are plenty of 8.5-9:1 cars running for many miles, why so low?

While the debate rages on, i'm going for a drive! From -20F to 100F this kit has been a joy and the performance screams racetrack...

Speaking of which, i'm thinking about the new oil cooler that I saw in one of your posts...looks nice and unless there are some real downsides I think I should explore the option... Drop me a PM or call me...
