FIT IT. 

THEN ENJOY IT.

Our OEM+ Stage 3 upgrade offers a complete, turn-key package that is entirely usable on a daily-driven car yet offers devastating performance just one squeeze of the throttle away.  

 

An exceptional value package of the highest quality, intelligently-designed hardware, matched in to our superb OEM+ Performance Software. Reliability comes as standard - fit it, then just enjoy it!

A complete solution that blends supercar performance with everyday practicality.

The heart of the Stage 3 kit is our significantly re-engineered IS38 turbo - featuring our own turbine wheels and high-spec bearing pack inside.

By retaining the housing of the IHI turbo, fitment is simple and cost-effective, reusing the factory oil and coolant lines plus gaskets with no aftermarket connections or adaptors to worry about.

Developed and supplied as a full, complete install kit combining our hardware with our matched OEM+ software for a true 'Plug and Play' solution.

The result? Expect 480hp, amazing driveability, and on a 4WD DSG car 0-60mph/100kph in around 3 seconds. True supercar performance.

 

For IS20 (smaller turbo) cars such as Golf 7 GTI, expect a power output of 450bhp.

POWER GAINS

Power gains are sensational. This package is more than capable of delivering over 500bhp - although we have calibrated it to a safer level of 480bhp, confidently leaving plenty in reserve.

DRIVEABILITY

Drivability and reliability are right up there alongside outright performance. By using the stock IHI housing, a low-lag spool on the turbo and great efficiency ensure power, smoothness ...and even surprising economy.

 

OEM+ SOFTWARE

The OEM+ Stage 3 kit comes with our beautiful OEM+ software - all developed specifically to match the hardware and tested over 2 years. Right first time, every time.

MATCHED HARDWARE

Our Stage 3 kit is not just about bolting a big turbo on. It comes with our matched hardware parts, all developed to flow alongside one another.

RELIABLE INSTALLATION

One of the main reassurances of our OEM+ Stage 3 is that all the turbocharger's factory mountings oil lines, even gaskets are retained. No aftermarket fixings, no adaptors, no worries.

SUPPORTING COMPONENTS

As well as the Stage 3 kit itself, our full range of other supporting hardware has been developed alongside.  From R600 intake, Intercooler, Oil Management, Downpipe, it’s all perfectly matched together.

PRECISION ENGINEERED FOR PERFECT PERFORMANCE.

Our OEM+ Stage 3 turbo reuses the stock factory IHI turbocharger housing as its basis with massively uprated, re-engineered high-flowing internal componentry.

Each turbo is built in the UK, balanced, checked and tested to in excess of its maximum operating speed on a Vane Flow Test Rig

Race-spec 360° thrust bearing packs plus increased shaft diameter

Complete new CNC machined turbine/ compressor billet wheel

Cut-back high flow turbine wheel for higher flow capacity

All internal flows inside the housing ported and smoothed to support increased airflow

PERFORMANCE

Let’s be honest, nobody chooses the Stage 3 upgrade for any reason other than performance.

 

Instant, supercar-like power is the reason we do this! But the RacingLine Performance OEM+ Stage 3 kit offers you much more besides, in terms of driveability, simple installation and reliability. 

Our Stage 3 power and drivability is exceptional. Although power has exceeded 500bhp with ease in our dynamic testing, we have calibrated this full package with our OEM+ Performance Software to deliver a little less - a safe and repeatable 480bhp.

What this means is true supercar performance levels. In the 4Motion cars, equipped with DSG gearbox, expect to clock around 3 seconds 0-60 (100kph) times, with the potential for quarter mile times in the low 11 / high 10 seconds.

NOTE

All of the above power figures are accurate, tested illustrations; however, please do remember that actual power figures can vary up or down slightly dependant on many factors such as the condition of your engine & ancillaries, the fuel quality, other modifications fitted, and even testing methods.

Also please remember that changing your car's software will affect its manufacturer warranty. It is your responsibility to notify your insurer and to ensure that your car still complies with all your local road laws. Please consult your supplying dealer for full information.

RELIABILITY

Why do we calibrate power output to 480bhp when this kit could easily deliver more? It's very simple: that's the level that our research shows is safe for these engines and transmission.

There are of course turbo upgrades out there that promise more power. But just a quick check on the internet will prove our point - that over 500bhp will cause failure unless major engine rework is done first. Simple as that.

Tens of thousands of development miles have been run on our test cars around the world (including hard track and drag strip use). It’s reassuring to know that the hardware of our kit will support that sort of output.

At this level, all of the supporting hardware is stable and safe, and all of the ECU’s component protection systems are fully operational. OEM+ is offering a safer, reliable, turn-key package at safe peak power levels. 

With hundreds of RacingLine Stage 3 kits sold around the world, we have had zero engine failures. We've even got one Stage 3 Golf 7R with 96k miles (155k kms) and still going strong.

*Turbo Exchange Program: You will need to provide your supplier with a standard IS38 turbo.  However, as we rework the whole set of internals, this can be in pretty much any condition - we'll even take a failed turbo!

 

For the smaller IS20 turbo (as used on lower-power 2.0 TSI such as Golf GTI), we cannot exchange.

WHAT ELSE IS REQUIRED?

As well as your OEM+ Stage 3 kit (as above), there are a few other 'must haves' that are important to achieving the power levels.  These are not included in the kit  - as we know that many Stage 2 customers will already have one or all of these fitted that can be retained.  We don't want you spending your money twice!

Naturally, we recommend our own RacingLine hardware parts listed above to make the power numbers. These are the components that our OEM+ Performance Software calibrations were developed around.  But other-brand products, providing they are high quality alternatives, should support the OEM+ Stage 3 kit just fine.

Please note that it is essential at Stage 3 power & torque levels to upgrade your clutch (on manual 6-speed cars) or for DSG cars, to install our OEM+ TCU Dynamic Software.

TRACK-PROVEN

As well as all of the usual in-depth testing that you would expect of our OEM+ Stage 3 upgrade, we've subjected our kit to some of the toughest tests during our 24-month development programme all over the world.

We've entered Stage 3 cars into World Time Attack, 6 hour endurance races, plus countless laps of countless circuits, and more quarter miles than we can count.

Fit it, and enjoy it.

That's the RacingLine Stage 3 difference.
