Eaton, the world’s most respected supercharger producer, has began production of a supercharger-rotating group to fill the gap between the existing TVS1320 and TVS1900. APR is pleased to present the first applications of TVS1740s for use anywhere in the world.
For the past 12 months, APR’s Engineering Teams have worked tirelessly with the TVS1740 to develop three new Stage III Supercharger Systems for the Audi’s 3.0 TFSI engine and the 4.2L FSI V8 as featured in the B8 RS4, B8 RS5 and R8. The new unit’s displacement is perfectly matched for both engines, providing for optimal intake port sizing, superior cooling, minimal rotational loss compared to higher displacement units and satisfies packaging constraints across over 10 Audi platforms.
The results of the new TVS1740 when packaged within APR’s integrated manifold designs is nothing short of breath taking and produces brutal acceleration with minimal impact on drivability, reliability and average fuel consumption. When compared to turbocharging, the TVS1740 produces faster response, a more robust power band and considerable top end performance advantages. Perfectly matched to the refinement of the driving experience Audi owner’s expect, the TVS1740 remains true to the TVS technology found in current offerings by creating the smallest parasitic loss in its class and by only slightly increasing in-cabin sound with just enough supercharger whine to remind you of the serious weapon at your control.
Announced today at APR’s annual global dealer conference, the first application to be available will be the Audi R8 V8 and RS5 4.2l FSI with other applications released throughout 2013. APR is proud to be on the forefront of real world engineering successes based on Eaton’s latest technologies.
