For the past several months Jason Heffner and his team at Heffner Performance have been working on the development of their Audi R8 V10 Twin Turbo program. The finally result has been released and is showcased right here.
The new system uses twin Garrett GT35R turbos pumping out 6 psi of boost producing 725 awhp, which is 225 more than stock. Jason Heffner states:
To date I would have to say that this is the most refined aftermarket twin turbo car that I have ever experienced. Exhaust noise levels can be quieted down to near stock levels with the larger mufflers and can be a bit louder with the smaller mufflers. We worked with the guys at European Performance Labs to engineer the engine calibration and the job that they did is nothing short of spectacular. Power delivery is very smooth and linear and the whisper of spooling turbos makes the hair stand up on the back of your neck.
Eurotech Motorsports in New Jersey and their customer John provided the dark grey Audi R8 V10 for development. The exclusive turbocharged sports car will be used for regular track days.
Is it really that hard to find a bumper that can accomodate the turbos?
Mox, they just took the rear bumper off to show the turbo system.
Really? Because in every video or photo, cars from Heffner Performance are missing their bumpers so I thought it may be a problem with size or cooling.
mox. it is just to show.
just like how they open the bonnet to show the engine. its not because the engine is too big for it
What took they so long?
MTM got the V10 biturbo since 2010 with 777bhp.
..only in America
This one is better than MTM’s imo. Low pressure turbos and sophisticated management gives much more smoother engine and no turbo lags.
Thanks for the article!
We are very excited about our Audi V8 and the new V10 twin turbo platforms. Look for more exciting news, video, and pictures of the V10 twin turbo in the coming months.
