ABT engine tuning
for basis: 3.2 184kW (250 hp)

The requirement to bring out the best in every engine is part of ABT´s family tradition. Whether the task in hand is modification or optimization of the engine electronics or complete remodeling, where performance upgrades are concerned we are in our element and that makes us the world´s number one in this field for cars by Audi, VW, Seat and Skoda. Besides, thanks to the experience we have acquired in our many years of professional racing, we are aware that not only power is important, but also durability, as only a combination of the two ensures lasting and therefore real driving pleasure.
ABT power increase up to 262 kW (370 hp), 400 Nm

Does anyone on here have this kit? or shed any pricing information about it?

Ive contacted ABT but haven't gotten a reply.

If I remember correctly, I think it'll be around 7k ($14,000). Hopefully I'm wrong and it's lower - seems a bit high for S/C.

Also, you sure that vid is for the ABT S/c?

Hey Persiano!

I'm also living in Dubai and ordered my R32 (Deep Blue Pearlescent) about a month ago. They have told me that it should arrive in November - the wait has been an absolute nightmare!

Are you getting yours from Al Naboodah?

That sounds like a lot for the S/C but does include warranty! :dontknow:

I think I will still wait and see how the ROTREX for the MkV will go!

BTW... I noticed the the S/C is where the filter use to be. Do you know what happen with the filter??

Anyone know why it is also on the other side to where the S/C was on the MkIV???

P.S. Welcome to the forum persiano!!!

Seeing as ABT are literally just up the road from me, im hoping this goes well, and isnt too expensive. Im tenmpted to look at charging the R in the future. Would be handy to have somewhere local to get the work done.

P.s.: what are ABT like in general? have they got a fairly good reputation?

Hi there,

I see you guys are working on a supercharger option for the MkV R32. Could you provide me with a bit more info on the following please?

1. How much is it likely to cost fitted and including VAT.
2. When are you likely to officially launch it as a tuning package option?
3. What problems are still yet to be fully resolved?
4. Will you be offering an engine guarantee?
5. Do you have any pictures and/or videos you could send me?
6. Any other info you can provide?

Thanks, sorry for all the questions. Please get back to me.

Cheers
Dave

Hello Dave,

Our conversion is already available so we have no issues left to resolve. We do include an extended warranty on all our tuning products.

370BHP 380NM of Torque
0-62 5 seconds

Attached is a copy of the power plot showing before & after power/torque & also a picture of the conversion fitted to a TT.

This conversion retails at £12,995Inc VAT & fitting. We would need your vehicle for 5 working days to carry it out.

If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

========================================================================

Craig, thank you for the swift reply. Very impressive.

I am surprised by the price, it's a LOT of money. I was expecting a figure around half that. Regrettably, I think this will be out of my reach, I just can't justify that kind of spend really. Bit of a shame as I love the idea of supercharing my car.

Thank you, please keep me informed on any future developments. Some pics and a vid on your site at some point would be great ;-)

========================================================================

Hi Dave,

The Abt conversions are normally at the top end of the scale but the quality is also at the top end & as far as I am aware no one else's conversions come with a warranty.

I will keep you informed of any other products that we have for your vehicle in the future.

Speak to you soon.

========================================================================

Thanks Craig.

I have no doubt the kit is fantastic and on a par with the HPA/HGP Turbo conversions but £13k is a huge amount for parts and 5 days solid work in my humble opinion. I don't mean to be disrespectful, I know I would love it but it seems really expensive. I am the type of buyer who would rather pay a premium for quality providing I think I'm getting good value. This is true whether the price is 70p or £7k. Hope that makes sense?

If the price ever comes down to 5-6k get in touch and I'll whip my card out ;-)

========================================================================

Waiting reply, hehe. To be fair, I bet it would be awesome but I just can't justify it. I need a pay rise I reckon!

Hmm thats expensive,

a stage two rotrex giving 450 bhp is only roughly 9k, but no warranty,

That kit comes with an inlet manifold which no other kits come with but u wouldnt need one at 370 bhp,

£13k for 120bhp? Expensive stuff. No doubt the ABT name and reputation demands a few extra grand.
