    Static compression ratio still 10:1? I remember back in 2006 the golf GTI had a 10:1 compression which was unheard of, jap turbos all ran around 8:1 with massive lag, most euro cars didn't bother with petrol turbos in favor of civilised linear power delivery... Then along came the golf gti with 10:1 and bye bye lag, wanna put it in 6th and accelerate from 1000rpm? No problem! Boost was already spooling at a touch over idle and was max by 2k... having owned 2 subarus, a wrx then an sti I was mind blown, what kind of witch craft was at play here...? High static compression ratios!! Massive increases in exhaust density at low RPM combined with a small turbo equals pulling hard from idle, and so began the age of modern European turbos, the king being the bmw 3.0TT with a 12.5:1 compression ratio, that's like the NA Ferrari 458 ratio... I've driven much more powerful turbos, and they're great, but I'd happily sacrifice upper power limit for low end grunt and responsiveness. Anyway I know it's still basically the same audi engine as the 2006 model had, I assume it's 10 or 11:1, so with a bigger turbo it could have comparable torque and power to the old amg 6.2 NA v8, 600nm and 361kw are well within reach but with more torque between 1000-4000rpm. Just can't overstate the performance transformation of high compression for turbos, it makes the entire rev range count and eliminates the wait

    You may have boosted performance I believe you have shortened the cars lifespan. Have you thought about cv joint upgrades and depending on Turbo psi does cylinder heads and seals need upgrading. Personally talking performance I see all Turbo Four cylinders a waste of money. I bought a Skyline Gt8 2003 for 6000 grand changed Travis to 6 speed box and beat EvoX..Evo only had take off until gear change. RWD start 2nd with first gear change at 130km/h.. Nothing beats torque. VQ35DE naturally aspirated.

      It's an R that's been thrashed. That's 240HP to the wheels due to drivetrain loss. The GTI is more in the 220 crank HP range, and is probably 190whp.
