CR170 Stage 3 Built by AARodriguez and tuned by JR Auto Performance

Super economical and showing off with +50HP and +110 Ft. Lbs. of TORQUE over a stock car, this 2014 Jetta TDI really has everything most TDI owners dream of.




Seriously, this was a fun build and I look forward to doing more of these torque monsters in the future since it was a relatively easy and fast build.  

Parts used:

  • BuzzKen 2.5" Stainless Steel Downpipe
  • JR Auto Performance DSG Tuning 
  • JR Auto Performance Stage 3 Tune for CR170 turbo - (Hybrids may be available in the future)
  • Audi S3 all aluminum intercooler 
  • AWE Silicone Boost Hoses
  • (4) T-Bolt Clamps for the Boost Hoses
  • AARodriguez CR170 Kit
  • New Fuel Filter
  • New Air Filter



When we started this build, we had 2 goals:

  1. Turn this Eco sleeper into a torque monster
  2. Test out some competing products and present the best to the world without dragging anyone through the dirt.  My personal motto is, "You should never need to bring down a competitor to make your products and services look good."


  1. Dyno car with a stock ECU tune + DSG tune to allow full Torque/HP/RPM values to show on the dyno.  DSG tuning disables auto kick-down, engages gear display on the cluster, lifts the stock torque limiter, tightens up shift speeds +++
  2. Drop stock exhaust
  3. Remove stock turbo
  4. Support the front of the car to prevent catastrophic damage after the headlights are removed Image result for crying laughing emoji
  5. Remove stock intercooler and replace it with the Audi S3 kit
  6. Bolt everything back
