The APR Boost Tap for the 1.8T and 2.0T EA888 Gen 3 engines is a simple, yet elegant solution for referencing boost pressure and vacuum as is commonly necessary for boost gauges. The boost tap plugs into an unused port on the factory intake manifold and doesn’t interfere with the factory T-MAP sensor.

Traditionally boost is tapped by spacing out the factory T-MAP sensor on top of the intake manifold. However, APR’s engineers discovered using this location lead to inconsistencies in intake air temperature readings and potentially a loss of power. Upon this discovery, APR’s engineering team went back to the drawing board and came up with a new and unique solution.

Kit Includes:

  • 1 Billet boost tap
  • 2 Viton o-ring seals
  • 1 Stainless steel barbed connection point
  • 1 Brass “No-buzz” mechanical boost gauge restrictor pill
  • 1 Tap cap
  • 5 Stepless OEM style ear clamps
  • 96 Inches of 200 PSI hose
  • 1 T-fitting
  • 5 Black cable ties
  • 1 Bag of anti-sieze
  • 1 Tapping tool

Utilizing the included punch tool on a warm engine, a boost and vacuum reference port is easily spread opened on the factory intake manifold. The billet aluminum boost tap then connects to the port and uses dual Viton o-ring seals for leak free operation. The reference hoses connect to the rear of the tap via a barbed stainless steel connection point and conveniently routes through the engine bay.

In addition to the boost tap, APR provides several extra components to help suit each individual’s needs. For those requiring more than one reference source, a T-fitting allows for more tapping points. In the case where a mechanical boost gauge is used, the brass restrictor pill limits flow and cures gauge buzz. Just less than 100 inches of 200 PSI hose is included with OEM style ear clamps and black cable ties to allow for neatly routing hose through the engine bay.

Awesome GTI Delivery Information

Do we ship abroad ?

Yes we do, to anywhere in the world though remember the postage is often high when shipping anything bulky. Most bulky items we export will go by UKMail so you can track the package online and could reach america within 48 hours providing its in stock !

There are a few countries we do not ship to, some of these include: Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Yugoslavia, Romania, Croatia, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia, Russia, Nigeria, Macedonia, Singapore, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Lebanon and Lithuania.

Why is postage on bulky items to some countries expensive compared to some other companies ?

For both yours and our safety we use well known couriers such as UKMail for shipping, then we know exactly where it is in the world at any time and we know its going to arrive safely. Shipping small items can be cheap, but items such as bodykits are expensive to ship - we have a very small margin on the postage fees merely to cover packaging. We can now ship using standard post on some items, however using all methods you may incur import charges when you receive the goods for which we cant be responsible for.
