You don't need any additional components here. Simply install and have fun! Instead of 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 and the engine should be in good condition. The basis has to be right. Our tip: Install the GFB diverter valve.

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. To prevent your engine oil from overheating and to ensure an optimum temperature and oil quality in your engine, we recommend an oil cooler kit. 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. Also here we recommend our high performance ignition coil packs. The original ignition coils are very sensitive and could lead to misfiring.

BAR-TEK® TIP!

If you have already installed a downpipeupgrade intercooler and an
upgrade high-pressure pump, you can continue to use them. If not, these parts are unavoidable! You should also definitely have the software tuned.

You need this extra to make it last long:

Due to higher loads and more boost pressure, you need reinforced forged pistons and connecting rods for your engine. With forged pistons and H-beam connecting rods made of steel, you can drive the V2 tuning kit to 420 hp stably and safely! We also offer both as a complete kit including ACL connecting rod bearings! To get the power onto the road, you need a reinforced sports clutch with SMS. The original clutch cannot handle the increased torque. For vehicles with DSG transmission, the DSG software must be adapted. More engine power also generates more heat, which means a higher oil temperature. We recommend our oil cooler kit to ensure that your engine oil does not overheat and that your engine always has the optimum temperature and oil condition. We recommend our digital oil temperature gauge as the perfect addition: this way you can always keep an eye on the oil temperature! We also recommend our high-performance ignition coils.

BAR-TEK® TIP!

If you have already installed a downpipe, upgrade intercooler and upgrade high-pressure pump, you can continue to use them. If not, these parts are absolutely necessary!  The adjustment of the software to the new components must be adjusted individually on the 1000 PS power test bench. Since the exhaust valves no longer close properly with increasing boost pressure, you need stronger valve springs. So that it does not come to engine damage.
