The Revo IS38ETR Enhanced Turbo offers exhilarating performance like no other.  With over two years of extensive development and global testing, Revo offers a reliable package capable of over 500HP without the need to upgrade engine internals or DSG clutches.

The high-performance Revo IS38ETR offers a significant upgrade over the stock IS38 whilst maintaining the original fitment and compressor and turbine housings.  The compressor and turbine housings have been CNC re-profiled to match the larger wheels and stronger shaft, also allowing room for a bespoke heatshield matched to the increased internal diameters.  Strength is a key factor to the IS38ETR, a replacement back-plate machined from a billet piece offers a greater resistance to warping.  The larger bearing housing has also been upgraded to make room for a specifically designed bearing system, incorporating a reinforced thrust bearing.  Precision balanced to levels above the OEM specification reduces vibration to the lowest possible level and improves performance and reliability of the turbocharger.

The Revo IS38ETR offers significant performance gains over any stock turbo setup, with peak gains of 171HP at the hub and 185NM torque over a stock IS38 VW Golf R.  That’s over 450HP at the hubs and maximum increases of 173HP @6500rpm and 215NM @2800RPM, all recorded on a Dynapack Hub Dyno.  However, over the two years of global development, numerous vehicles have been run on various dyno types, running between 470 to 520BHP, depending on dyno setup, hardware and fuel quality.

Although MOST parts DO FIT FACELIFT MODELS such as the MK7.5, C7.5 and B8.5, some components such as exhaust systems and headlights are NOT ALWAYS perfectly upward compatible and vice versa due to minor changes in body design such as fenders, bumper and valences.
