Belt slip is a common problem when turning up the boost on your supercharged 3.0T. With the supercharger spinning at a higher RPM, the factory belt tensioner just can’t keep enough pressure to prevent slipping, which translates to less boost than your upgraded pulleys should help you push. If the point is to make more boost, you need a tensioner that can hold up under those conditions. Fortunately, the VPS Heavy Duty Supercharger Belt Tensioner is designed to fix that problem so you can make more boost safely without losing power.

Audi designed their interiors in the B8 and 8V to be incredibly comfortable, sporty, and enjoyable for the driver and passengers but skimped out in a small area that most of their buyers would never notice. The plastic and unimpressive interior hood release lever was something they must have thought only mechanics would touch and therefore it didn’t need to match the rest of the interior’s fit and finish. We disagree. Give it some love with our attractive and sturdy Billet Interior Hood Release Lever and know that every piece of your interior matches Audi’s superior quality.
