APR 3.0 TFSI Coolant Performance System (CPS) Radiator Clearance Sale

September 8th, 2016

cooler_30t

We are having a clearance sale on a small quantity of our CPS front mount radiator systems for $300 off of the retail price. Each unit is fully functional and pressure tested for leaks. The system comes with all hoses, clamps, brackets, etc to bolt directly to B8 chassis vehicles. For B8.5 chassis vehicle compatibility, 3/4th inch hose and couplers, which are purchasable at auto parts stores, must be routed from one side of the cooler to the other.

The system retailed for $999, and is available on clearance for $699.

What does it do?

The factory supercharger cooling system uses air-to-water heat exchangers to cool the hot supercharged air before it enters the engine. Hot air kills power, so cooling it is extremely important. When the supercharged air passes over the heat exchangers, heat is removed, and transferred to a coolant circuit. The hot coolant is pumped to a radiator on the front end of the vehicle where it’s chilled by air rushing through the grilles on the front end of the car, before being pumped back through the supercharger again.

Unfortunately, the factory radiator is tiny and ineffective. It does a poor job of reducing the coolant temperature …

APR Presents DSG / S Tronic Clutch Packs

July 19th, 2016

release-clutch-packs-lg

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!
