Default FrankenTurbo Kit fo R56 Review!!!

This is a continuation of my C2motorsports review for the FrankenTurbo installed on my car.

Click the image to open in full size.


I've had the pleasure of being part of the testing phase for http://www.frankenturbo.com 's newly developed turbo kit for the R56!!!!! This turbo is factory size/look, but don't let that fool you! This turbo was built with efficiency and power in mind! With it being stock size i have noticed there is no lag at all! (if there is any i cant feel it!) This turbo plus the tune has added 33 WHP just from bolting this puppy on and is rated for more!!! Currently running 19psi with this setup and man its killer! For anyone looking for a turbo upgrade this kit is highly recommended especially for those who want to keep the stock look! This kit is highly affordable for what it offers fro power and items that come with the kit. I recommend this turbo kit over anything especially for not having to worry about engine failures etc. This turbo is a little monster thats for sure!

Check out their kit here!!!!

These guys are also super nice and cool too! I'm sure they would be happy to answer any questions you have about this kit.

I also forgot to mention. This kit is a fraction of the price of the jcw turbo and puts out more power!!!

FrankenTurbo has been working in the VW/Audi scene for quite some time. Their products are quality. Their B5S4 kit is killer.

More like a little over 20. However that's 20 plus 33 more for the turbo.

If you want to count tune I went from 176 to 230 at the wheels on a mustang dyno. So the answer is no you cannot get 54 whp from just a tune
