Revo IS38ETR V2 Turbo Golf R Audi S3 TTS




2.0 TSI EA888 GEN3

The next generation of Revo IS38ETR Enhanced Turbo offers even more exhilarating performance than before. Revo offers a reliable package capable of over 500HP without the need to upgrade engine internals or DSG clutches. Whilst also focusing on the driveability and feel of the vehicle, on-road or the track.

Only Revo Enhanced Turbos are specifically designed to work in harmony with your vehicle and Revo Software. Engineered to directly replace the stock turbo, the Revo IS38ETR is a high-quality upgrade, precision balanced to motorsport tolerances to improve performance and ensure reliability


A direct replacement for the IHI Turbo found on 2.0 TSI EA888 GEN3 engines, the IS38ETR is an enhanced version of the OEM IS38, with increased airflow from the re-profiled housing and larger compressor and turbine wheels. Revo Hardware and Software are the key to achieving this performance and have been developed to work in harmony with the ETR upgrade


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 custom-designed larger wheels and stronger shaft. Strength is a key factor to the IS38ETR, a replacement back-plate machined from a single billet piece offers greater resistance to warping, while the increased diameter shaft eliminates the weakness in the OE part


The larger compressor wheel has been machined from a solid billet of aluminium giving a much stronger construction. The new custom design gives the highest level of aero performance, providing superior flow characteristics to achieve the required boost levels with less effect. The lightweight construction of the compressor wheel also ensures low inertia, resulting in increased performance


The precisely engineered turbine wheel has been made with a custom high flow aero blade profile to compliment the aero of the compressor wheel. The result is an extremely high flow aero turbine wheel which increases exhaust gas choke flow limits and reduces backpressure


The bearing housing has also been enlarged and upgraded to make room for a specifically designed 360° thrust bearing system, incorporating a custom 4 oil-fed thrust pad for increased reliability. Precision VSR balanced to levels above the OEM specification, something seen in the motorsport industry. This reduces vibration to the lowest possible level and improves the performance and reliability of the turbocharger


The integrated recirculation valve is fundamentally a blow-off valve integrated into the compressor housing. When the throttle valve is closed and the pressure in the inlet drops, the valve opens and air from the discharge side of the compressor is diverted back into the inlet of the compressor. This helps to avoid the compressor going into surg


The Revo Turbo Muffler Delete offers a high-quality single piece replacement for the OEM part which allows for smoother uninterrupted airflow, increasing throttle response and providing improved turbo acoustics. Its single-piece design allows air a more direct path when exiting the turbo, smoothing flow to offer enhanced throttle and boost response

Dyno testing was carried on our inhouse DynaPack chassis dynamometer, which measures performance at the wheel hubs, for comparisons between a Stock VW Golf R with IS38 Turbo and the same vehicle fitted with a full Revo performance Pack and IS38ETR turbo.

  • Stock Golf R Peak performance: 283HP / 379NM (HP at the hubs)
  • IS38 ETR Peak performance:: 457HP / 567NM (HP at the hubs)
  • Peak Gains: +174HP / +188NM
  • Max Gains Over Stock: +183HP @ 6500RPM / +188NM @ 4600RPM
