APR is pleased to present the ultimate clutch pack upgrade for the DQ250 transmission!
The APR DQ250 Clutch Packs replace the factory transmission’s friction disc and steel plates with an advanced and proprietary design that allows for greater performance. The system goes beyond the norm of simply increasing the disc and plate count, and takes a multi-step approach that not only greatly improves the overall friction engagement area, but does so without sacrificing the total heat-sink material mass of the steel plate. With 40-50% more friction discs, tighter tolerances, carefully specified materials, surface finishes, a proprietary top plate design and more, the clutches hold more torque, prevent premature failure, and provide quick stutter-free high-performance engagement!

Designed for the DIY installers, the universal APR Catch Can Systems and Accessories are designed for use on vehicles where APR does not sell an application specific Catch Can System. The APR Oil Catch Can System traps excessive crankcase oil vapors and gunk from entering the engine. This helps to reduce carbon buildup on intake valves, octane lowering oil vapors and oil pooling in the intake tract. The can drains in seconds with the flick of a knob, and is recommended at all stages of performance. Read More

On May 16th, we updated all Audi S6 and S7 Stage 2 and RS turbo 4.0 TFSI ECU upgrades to version 1.2. This new version fixes reports of a “no-start” condition while attempting to first start up the vehicle. It also fixes a report of a P1335 fault code. If you don’t have either of these conditions, there’s no rush to get the update, but if you do, you can schedule an appointment with an APR dealer today. Thank you and Go APR!

What a weekend! We went into the weekend not knowing what to expect being a first year event, but left excited and ready for next year. Matthew Bounds and his crew at Sowo Partners moved the popular Southern Worthersee event from Helen, GA to a new event called “The European Experience” in Savannah Georgia, and it went off without a hitch. The two-day event was a welcomed refresh filled with friendly faces in an exciting new location with an excellent post-event night life in downtown Savannah.
We offered APR ECU and TCU upgrades at the event, as we do at nearly all events we attend, and we nearly doubled our flash count from years past at SOWO. We want to thank every customer who partook in the sale, and want to thank all those who stopped by to talk shop and shoot the breeze. Last but not least, we want to thank Matt Bounds and the SOWO Partners crew for putting on an amazing show we’re excited to attend next year.
Take a moment to view a few photos we grabbed at the event, and see you next year!
