$8000 is surely an incredible price?

pls don't take my words for it. But taking reference with how VF priced their US and Euro spec supercharger kits, I predict the Euro version may be slightly higher at US$8500 ?? Taking into account the shipping and VAT costs, you might be looking at £4500 - £5,000 over at this side of the pond. With installation costs at roughly £1.5K, its still going to costs you loads.

Some addtional info about power extra

After much anticipation we are pleased to release these images of our pre-production MK4 and MK5 R32 stage 1 turbo charger system.
The non-aftercooled stage 1 system is planned to make in the high 300's at the crank and the stage 2 system is charge-cooled and designed to deliver in the high 400's at the crank.

The stage 2 system has been created and pics of it will follow in this thread. The stage 2 will be conservatively tuned and designed for additional power increases when coupled with a short runner manifold. Utilizing the latest and greatest EV14 fuel injectors from Bosch and a pressure increase, the fuel delivery system has been designed to go to greater power levels.

The stage 2 charge cooled system utilizes standard cooling technology from our supercharger systems for the BMW E46M3 which creates 470whp on 91octane at 8.5psi.

The R32 turbo system is designed for both the MK4 and MK5 R32 and the stage2 aftercooler will be available for the MK5 DSG equipped models with a lower power rating than the MK4 Stg2. However different configurations will be offered for those using DSG upgrades and those wanting stg1 power with the stg2 aftercooling only.

Our manifolds are currently going through the foundry process and we use the same iron foundry as Garrett Turbos (they use more than just one). All pipework is stainless and coupled with V-band clamps for optimal assembly.

More info will follow over the next few months and we are now adding this info to our website in the turbo section next week. Any questions can be raised on this thread and we will try to answer them (several at a time), when we are not working on our R&D.

Thats such a tidy install. Great for someone who prefers an OEM look.

interesting how theyre preferring a charge cooler instead of the more common fmic/smic system.
thats why Lotus first pioneered C/cooling years ago as well as the having the turbo close to the manifold.
