HS Tuning is proud to have put together a "choose your hardware" style kit to retrofit the IS38 turbocharger to your GTI, Golf, Alltrack, Sportwagen, or A3! 

The IS38 turbocharger that is originally found in the Volkswagen Golf R, Arteon, Audi TTS, and S3 is a very common upgrade for GTI, Golf, Alltrack, TT, and A3 owners. When you pair the IS38 turbo with the right hardware and software upgrades, the results are fantastic! With APR software, intake, and Cast Race Pipe, our GTI was able to make 364 horsepower and 399 lb/ft of torque at the front wheels in 2015. With almost no discernible loss of turbo response (A3, TT, and GTI) the IS38 makes a great deal more power higher in the rev range, 93 additional horsepower to the wheels @ 5,600 rpm, over the IS20, on our GTI test. 

APR has hardware requirements and recommendations for matching the IS38 turbocharger with their software. We've made all of these products optional additions to the IHI IS38 Turbocharger allowing you to select the parts you need or want, no matter what your car's current configuration is! 

APR Hardware Requirements:

  • APR Carbon Fiber Inkake
  • APR Cast Race Pipe System
  • APR Intercooler
  • Spark Plugs, colder heat range than stock, such as NGK R7437-9 gapped to .024" +/- .002"
  • APR TCU Software Upgrade may be needed for vehicles with DSG transmission
  • Upgraded RSR Hybrid Clutch will more than likely be needed for owners with manual transmission
  • Vehicles outside the U.S. that have GPF will need HPFP upgrade
  • APR has IS38 software for most ECU box codes, but we recommend checking with HS Tuning or APR before installation if you are unsure
