You don't need any additional components here. Simply install and have fun! No Longlife oil. Better use our oil.

BAR TEK-TIP!

We recommend to refuel 102 octane fuel. This will give your engine more power because it knocks less! The turbocharger should not be too old. Engine in good condition. The basis must be right. Our tip: Install the GFB diverter valve. If you need new spark plugs anyway, buy our upgrade spark plugs directly.

You need this extra to make it last:

You need a reinforced sports clutch so that you can bring the power to the road. The original clutch can't handle the increased torque. For DSG vehicles we recommend our reinforced DSG clutch for torques above 500 Nm. This can transmit up to 700 Nm! For the optimum transmission oil temperature, it is necessary to install our transmission oil cooler kit. This will protect your DSG gearbox from overheating! So that your engine oil does not overheat and always produces an optimal temperature and oil condition in your engine, we recommend an oil cooler kit, which is however still in work. For the oil cooler kit, we recommend that you order our digital oil temperature display, so you always have the oil temperature of your engine at a glance.

BAR TEK-TIP!

If you have already installed an upgrade intercooler, downpipe and an upgrade high-pressure pump, you can continue to use them. If not, these parts are unavoidable! You can also get the right chiptuning software from us. We would also be happy to individually tune your car on our 1000 PS MAHA dyno.
