Golf 7 R and Co.: How to increase performance in four levels

With our tuning guide you get the four power levels with which you can bring your 2.0L EA888 Gen.3 up to 520 PS (382 kW). And of course, as always with BAR-TEK®, professionally and safely. There are all the tuning parts and measures you need, from chip tuning to high-strength forged pistons!

Of course, you can also take a closer look at all performance parts for EA888 Gen.3 engines.

Installed, for example, in:

  • VW Golf 7 R (AU)
  • VW Golf 7 GTI Clubsport S (AU)
  • Seat Leon Cupra (5F)
  • Audi S3 (8V)
  • Audi TTS (FV/8S)

Year of construction:

2012 – 2017

Engine codes for example:

  • CJXA
  • CJXC
  • CJXE
  • CJXG
  • CJXH
  • DJHA
  • DNUC
  • DNUE
  • DNUF
The values given are based on our experience with a 2.0L EA888 Gen.3 with 300 PS, engine code CJXC.

This is what your engine needs to have a long shelf life:

You don't need any additional components here. Simply install and have fun! Instead of Longlife oil, it is better to use our oil.

BAR-TEK® TIP!

We recommend refuelling with 102 octane fuel. This gives your engine more power because it produces less knocking! The turbocharger should not be too old and the engine should be in good condition. The basis must be in good condition. We also strongly recommend installing the GFB air recirculation valve.

For this performance level, we recommend our upgrade intercooler. This means you always have full power, even at warm temperatures.

BAR-TEK® TIP!

As a mega tip: With the BAR-TEK® Open Air Intake you have up to 15 PS more power. The following also applies here: 102 octane is mandatory and the GFB recirculation air valve must not be missing!

You need that extra so that it will last:

You will need a reinforced sports clutch so that you can transfer the power to the road. The original clutch cannot handle the increased torque. For DCT vehicles, we recommend our reinforced DCT clutch if the torque exceeds 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 protects your DCT gearbox from overheating! We recommend an oil cooler kit to ensure that your engine oil does not overheat and that your engine always has the optimum temperature and oil quality. In addition to the oil cooler kit, we recommend ordering our digital oil temperature gauge, so that you always have an overview of your engine's oil temperature.

BAR-TEK® TIP!

If you have already installed an upgrade intercoolerdownpipe and an upgrade high-pressure pump, you can continue to use these. You should also have the software customised by your trusted tuner.

You need that extra so that it last a long time:

In stage 4, you need forged pistons and steel connecting rods from our High Boost ULTI kit, in which all parts are optimally matched to each other. The kit copes perfectly with extreme performance and takes your tuning to a whole new level. The same applies to the cylinder head High Boost ULTI Kit, which contains everything your cylinder head needs for maximum performance. You will also need the upgrade conversion kit for the fuel pump to supply the engine with the best possible fuel and prevent it from running lean. It is also advisable to install the upgrade high-pressure pump.

BAR-TEK® TIP!

You can also choose an even larger turbo for even more boost, the rest of the parts remain as recommended.
