A previous client of ours at Velocity Factor wanted a significant power upgrade for his 2013 Audi Q5 with a 272 horsepower 3.0L supercharged V6, so we recommended that he upgrade to APR TFSI Supercharger Pulley Upgrade along with Stage 2+ ECU Software Re-Flash.
The client had an exhaust system as well as H&R wheel spacers and an air intake system ordered and installed at Velocity Factor.
To install the pulley along with the belt included in the APR TFSI Supercharger Pulley Upgrade requires specific tools and other equipment that APR Tuning and authorized dealers (such as ourselves) have access to. Our knowledgeable and experienced mechanics removed the front nose with ease in order to gain access to the target area.
According to APR’s website, “The factory pulley is pressed on to the supercharger’s input shaft. It’s not possible to remove the factory pulley without damage, or damaging the supercharger itself unless special care and attention is taken. The APR Supercharger Pulley Installation Kit is designed to encapsulate the entire pulley and pull evenly across its entire surface. The unit is compact enough to not require complete removal of the front end of your vehicle, reducing labor time. Furthermore a provision was made to incorporate a 1/2 inch drive breaker bar which allows the entire assembly to be easily counter-held and ultimately makes the process a one man job.”
From there, Velocity Factor reflashed the vehicle to a Stage 2 ECU Reflash upgrade.
