    HPA Motorsports FT600 Volkswagen Touareg

    TruckTrend: HPA Motorsports FT600 Volkswagen Touareg
    Extreme Power

    It's always fun to beat the competition when you're the underdog. It's like the bespectacled nerd taking down the loud-mouthed bully, the ant carrying the rubber-tree plant, or the low-fat ice cream that tastes as good as the real thing--well, maybe not. But in the case of HPA Motorsports' latest tuner creation, you can have an entry-level V-6 Porsche Cayenne or Volkswagen Touareg that pounds out 100 more horses than the new 500-horse ($96,000) Cayenne Turbo.
    HPA has a long history of tuning small VW engines to run with big-muscle sports cars. Sister publication Motor Trend has tested a few of HPA's twin-turbo Golf R32s, including one that rocketed to 208 mph.

    HPA can build a vehicle with a variety of single- or twin-turbo packages that range between 410 and 600 horsepower, that still sips normal pump fuel. We spent a day at HPA's Vancouver, Canada-based facility with its top model, the FT600. The FT600 package ($32,000) starts with the removal of the engine to fit a special head-plate setup, heavy-duty rod bearings, and a modified oil pan. Then, a pair of ball-bearing-style Garrett GT25R turbochargers are mounted via HPA's custom exhaust manifolds. The twin-turbos' 19psi boost travels through hand-formed stainless-steel pipework, formed silicone hoses, and twin air-to-air intercoolers before funneling turbo pressure into an HPA cast-aluminum short-runner intake manifold. A high-flow fuel pump, larger fuel lines, oversize fuel injectors, a new mass airflow sensor, and a custom airbox replete with a high-flow air filter handle air/fuel duties. A specially programmed engine computer teams with aftermarket spark plugs and an electronically activated boost bypass valve to ensure that the V-6 delivers its rated 600 horsepower without having detonation reduce the engine to a pile of aluminum chips. Likewise, HPA fits twin ceramic-coated 70mm downpipes that mate with two five-inch-diameter high-flow catalytic converters and a throttle-activated quad-bypass stainless-steel exhaust. Only the FT600 package requires a special heavy-duty six-speed automatic transmission ($13,500) to handle the big power.

    That is pretty sick indeed. This looks like it was based on the 3.2 liter V6 and not the 3.6 liter if I am correct.

    If you look it isn't mounted transversely like the VR6 in a typical jetta/gti.
