The IE 450T MK6 Golf R kit is a complete turbo upgrade system based on a twin-scroll BorgWarner EFR 6758 turbocharger, which offers larger power gains than other kits on the market, while offering faster spool time. Included with the kit is everything needed to upgrade, including hardware and software. In bolt-on form, the kit will increase horsepower to roughly 450bhp on stock engine internals, with the capability of over 500bhp if a built engine is utilized.
As it hit the drawing board, the idea was simple: develop a turbo kit for the MKVI Golf R which not only significantly increases the power output of the vehicle, but also greatly enhances the driving experience. Car enthusiasts, including Integrated Engineering, are often apprehensive when it comes to big turbo upgrades, as larger turbos carry a reputation of increasing turbo lag. IE wanted to offer a kit that would increase the power without making the car lose its amazing street-friendly daily drivability. Fast forward through over two years of development… IE is pleased to announce the Integrated Engineering 450T EFR turbo kit for MK6 Golf R.
Required Supporting Modifications:
How does this kit compare to others on the market?
The IE450T kit has proven to be the best performing kit on the market, offering both the fastest spool time and the highest power output. Along with that, we utilize a genuine BorgWarner EFR turbocharger, which have proven to be much more reliable than others available. Not even the finest detail was overlooked in the development in our kit, making it the most plug-and-play, reliable kit your money can buy.
Will this turbo kit fit my car?
This turbo kit was designed to fit left hand drive, 2012-2013 MK6 Golf R applications, with the belt-drive FSI engines only.
Does this kit include everything needed to install?
The IE450T kit is an all-inclusive turbo kit, including all parts necessary for installation. However, several supporting modifications are required, which we sell separately. Along with the turbo kit, you will need an IE FDS intercooler, IE HPFP, IE450T cold air intake kit, Milltek cat-back exhaust system, and IE midpipe. These parts are sold separately, as many people already have these installed on their vehicle.
Will I need to upgrade engine internals for this kit?
In base form, the IE450T kit is designed to work with a completely stock engine. For the 100 octane software tune, a built bottom and valve springs are needed at the minimum.
Does this kit fit RHD models, or just LHD?
At this time, we have only confirmed fitment on left-hand drive models. We do have plans to offer a kit for right-hand drive models in the near future.
How do I install the IE performance software?
Included with each turbo kit is the IE PowerLink V2 flash loader, which allows you to flash your car from the comfort of your driveway. Simply connect to a laptop and use the provided instructions to update the software on your ECU.
What is the approximate labor time to install the IE450T kit?
The recommended install time for a professional technician is 8-12 hours.
Can I use another brand intercooler, HPFP, or exhaust? Will my current cold air intake fit with the IE450T kit?
We have designed the IE450T kit to work seamlessly with the IE FDS intercooler, IE HPFP, and IE midpipe. However, other intercoolers, HPFPs, and midpipes may work, but we have not confirmed fitment. Since the IE FDS intercooler features the largest core volume available, other intercoolers may not sufficiently cool charge air, resulting in power loss.
I don't need the complete turbo kit, can I buy individual components separately?
The IE450T kit is only sold complete, with no core components sold separately. If you have purchased a kit and need replacement parts, please contact us.
Can I use another company's ECU tune with the IE450T kit?
The IE450T kit includes software, which must be used for proper operation. We do not recommend running the car with the IE450T kit installed unless the IE performance software has been flashed to the ECU.
Will I need a low pressure fuel pump upgrade to support the IE450T kit?
The IE450T kit in base form does not require a low pressure fuel pump upgrade. We have optimized our turbo kit to get the most out of the factory low pressure fuel supply. If more than 450HP is desired then pistons, rods, and a low pressure fuel pump upgrade may be required.
