One of the highest power output modifications to emanate from the VF-Engineering R&D facility in California is a bolt-on roots supercharger system adding approx 200hp and 200lbs of torque to the V10 R8. Available for the 2009 and up models with either manual and Rtronic/Stronic, this system utilizes the latest generation Eaton TVS2300 4-lobe roots twin vortices supercharger coupled with an air to water after cooling system.
Using state of the art technology and production processes, VF-Engineering has created a system that integrates with the V10 engine effectively and produces a proven result that has been adopted and is installed in the primary and aftermarket.
Packing a lag-free instant punch of torque from 5psi of boost at 1500rpm, the air charge progressively climbs to 6.5psi at redline resulting in an exhilarating increase in acceleration. The supercharger creates a predictable delivery of power output likening the car to a V12. This suits all driving styles and conditions and not just straight-line acceleration.
Designed as a reversible and simple upgrade this product is targeted at the daily driver and enthusiast looking to retain the character of the V10 Audi.
Engine calibration is programmed with an ECU OBD2 port electronic flash/Direct flash and was designed by VF/Hex Tuning maintaining the Bosch safety functions and using the factory engine controls to re-calibrate for an enhanced combustion cycle. Extensive tuning of the camshaft timing mapping allows the appropriate charging of the combustion cylinders to produce an extra 120 ft/lbs of torque at 2000rpm.
Tested by Motor Trend magazine, the supercharged V10 achieves 0-60 in 3.1s (originally 3.9s) and hits the quarter-mile flag in just 11.0 sec @ 127.3 mph.
