Looking for a Supercharger or tuner for a V8 Treg? Does anyone know where I can get one, or has one for sale?

Your best bet is to contact JHMOTORSPORTS in Northern Cal. They don't have a Touareg specific kit. But they do extensive work with both 4.2 V8 engines.

If anyone can put something together for you, it's them.

Has anyone done any engine mods to there Tregs?
My V8 FSI has a JHM lightweight crank pulley, custom exhaust with secondary cat bypass pipes and a custom Malone tune.

Tony @ PES got a pretty bad reputation YEARS ago, mostly with his business practices. The products have gotten mixed reviews... some like them, others have similar complaints (coolant leaks from supercharger) that kill the motor.

I like the idea of JHM and their use of the Vortech supercharger setup. They are a tried and true supercharger for just about any V8. And to back that unit with JHM tuning and support... you really can't lose.


But, its all about demand (and money) of course.

Can you strap a supercharger on V6/V8 TDi engines?

What's different from your custom Malone tune and what they off as their Stage 1 kit??
I have had Malone tunes on several cars including TDI and FSI motors. He started with a generic stage one then requested VCDS logs in order to see if there was any room for improvement. Ive had two updates and each update was better than the generic stage one tune. With the Flashzilla tool, I can download the tune or return to stock in my garage. I plan on taking it to an AWD Dyno soon to see what it puts down.

For the original poster, it sounds like you have been bitten by the bug... the I WANT MO POWA bug.

This is a great forum, with a ton of information that people have used. So take a few minutes and flip through some of the pages. Do a couple quick searches. You will most likely find what you are looking for.

A lot of the stuff that I have done with my FSI V8, you can do to your V8, with a few lil tweeks.

Here are a couple links of some stuff that I have done over the past year or so...
