We are proud to introduce to you the New TPC38 Ball Bearing MQB Turbocharger for the Audi and Volkswagen community.

After many hours of design and months of machining TPC made custom parts for the TPC38 to host a 54mm x 71mm with extended tips. On top of that we mated the new comp wheels to a 9 blade G series style turbine wheel for quicker spool and better flow than the older design 11 blade turbine wheels and the attached graph shows how quickly it spools to an amazing 28.3 psi at 3410rpm on a 93-pump gas tune by user AROB157. Also posted is some data from GLS Performance on ethanol, 30.4psi at 3312 rpm. The TPC38 spools incredibly well!!!

Another upgrade is the option of our new performance design compressor cover which includes an intake elbow and muffler delete.

 On top of having some of the best wheels in the class this turbo uses BALL BEARINGS which makes this turbo more reliable and faster spooling then it's JOURNAL BEARING counterparts.

You can choose from 2 styles of compressor covers, the OEM or PERFORMANCE version.   

About the PERFORMANCE COVER version: The 2-piece intake system is far superior to the OEM models as shown in the pictures below. The opening at the turbo's inlet is approximately 1" larger than stock and has a nice angle inside the inlet portion to direct the air flow more efficiently. The result means better air delivery to the compressor wheel. The inlet pipe on the performance cover is available with an OEM style PCV fitting or a -10AN PCV fitting for easier catch line installation.  

With our upgraded compressor housing,  it comes with either a 2" outlet on the compressor housing for people running an OEM sized TMD or a 2.25" outlet for people with a discharge pipe from brands such as Neuspeed, AFE, and EQT that came with a LARGER DIAMETER TMD. If you are unsure as to the size of the turbo muffler delete, you are running measure the OD at the serrated portion of the TMD.

Note that the current intake elbow is OEM sized on the intake side to easily bolt up to any intake that attaches to an OEM size turbo inlet pipe. We are developing a 3" elbow for even better flow over our already high flowing inlet.

Please note that those with APR catch can kit, the line requires slight trimming to fit with our OEM PCV when choosing the performance cover option.

Optional porting of the turbine housing inlet available.

WHEN ORDERING THE PERFORMANCE COVER PLEASE PUT WHAT SIZE OUTLET (OEM/2"or 2.25"Upgraded) YOU WOULD LIKE IN THE NOTES SECTION OF THE CART.

High Speed balanced in house on our VSR balancing machine.

 TPC also offers the metal portion of the coolant feed line (part#06K-121-492-F) as some people have a very hard time removing it from their turbo.
