Audi R8 V10 Supercharger Kit Tuning


The Audi R8 V10 is slow and sluggish... said no-one ever. Yet a sought after modification for the supercar is a bolt on supercharger which really does transform the car. We tuned this one to some pretty impressive figures!

Audi know how to make a very fast supercar, and this R8 V10 is a perfect example of that. In typical Audi fashion, the car is a stunner where the attention to detail is second to none. The glass cover displays the big block making for a very nice view no matter where you are looking at the car. That being said, with the rise of the turbocharger and the supercharger, the V10 won’t keep up with rivals… Unless you bolt on the VF engineering supercharger kit.  We offer this Audi R8 V10 Supercharger Kit Tuning package here at JFA.

This R8 Spyder in particular came to us from Oakley Design. It’s a stunning Nardo Grey rocking the Audi carbon package too!

Stock Figures

As expected, the car runs impressively straight out of the factory, with quoted Audi figures suggesting 540BHP and 540Nm torque. We know from experience that German car manufactures like to sell short their figures. Just as we thought, the figures came out at 545BHP and 550Nm torque. These figures are great and all… But we had a supercharger ready to fit so we knew this was just the tip of the iceberg.

Once we fitted the supercharger to the top of the block, we were ready to adjust the map to run the car!

Audi R8 V10 Supercharger Kit Tuning Figures

The stock figures are impressive alone. With no forced induction there’s not much we can do to the car to make a noticeable difference. This is why Oakley Design decided they wanted us to supply and fit a VF Engineering supercharger kit to the engine. With this, our tech guys had to make hundreds of adjustments to the map before even running the car on the dyno. After this foundation layer is draft, we are able to tweak and alter the map to squeeze more power out of the supercharger.

We eagerly started the final dyno run to find that Oakley Design’s car was now running a whopping 781BHP and 837Nm torque! With 241BHP and 297Nm torque increase, this car is a hypercar killer. You wouldn’t be wrong in thinking this isn’t the same car as the supercharger really does change it in every way. But the benefits don’t stop there. The torque band is now so much smoother meaning when the pedal is touching the floor, your jaw swiftly follows.

The Kit

If you have an Audi R8 V10 and are looking to get more power, you should consider our forced induction conversion. We supply, fit and tune all here at our facility in Maidstone, Kent.
