Automobile Magazine Review of APR Software

engine

APR is pleased to present the ultimate ECU Upgrade for the Audi A4, A5 and Q5 3.0 TFSI V6 available through the OBD-II Port via APR's Patented DirectPort Programming!

After months of long nights and many hours of testing, developing and more testing, we’re pleased to offer you an ECU recalibration that is second to none. APR’s extensive research and development provides you with a powerful ECU upgrade with no loss of drivability or reliability. Expect faster acceleration, improved throttle response and more power across the entire power band.

APR’s 3.0 TFSI V6 ECU Upgrade is an expertly recalibrated engine control strategy that primarily remaps the engine's operating parameters, within the factory ECU, to provide smooth and reliable power as if intended by the OEM.  APR’s ECU Upgrade is developed to work within the OEM and Tier 1 Supplier specifications for engine component stress tolerances and performance specifications and is thoroughly track tested through APR Motorsport's Grand-AM and World Challenge professional racing efforts. Available in octane-specific variations, APR’s calibrations allow you to take advantage of fuel quality available in your area.

APR Stage I and Stage II+ ECU Upgrades

engine

The APR Stage I ECU Upgrade gives you higher peak numbers of 334 horsepower and 332-ft. of torque measured at all 4 wheels, but also gains of up to 101 all wheel horsepower and 86 lb-ft are available throughout the power band!

For those demanding more torque, The APR Supercharger Pulley Upgrade is the answer. Spinning the supercharger faster increases air flow allowing for higher boost levels and more power. The gain in torque is felt immediately, but the results are present across the entire powerband. Expect gains of 132 all wheel horsepower over stock, a second dropped sprinting from 0-60 mph and over 7 seconds faster in a 62-124mph sprint! Software is included as a free upgrade for APR Stage I customers with the purchase of an APR Supercharger Pulley Upgrade.

APR’s ECU Upgrade is the best power per dollar modification for the new 3.0 TFSI V6 and gives it just the extra edge these cars lack from the factory without pushing the limits. With factory-like smoothness and drivability, APR’s ECU upgrade will fill the void in an otherwise excellent car.

  • Available Fuel Grades: North American 91, 93, & 100 octanes ((RON+MON)/2) and Rest of World 95, 98 and 104 octane (RON).
  • Requirements: Stage I requires no hardware upgrades. Stage 2+ simply requires an APR Supercharger Pulley Upgrade.

rabbitAcceleration Enhancements:
Beyond power and torque enhancements, APR’s Calibration Engineers were able to increase the acceleration rate of the Q5 through other calibrations changes. Artifical limiters are reduced resulting in a more responsive pedal without altering overall throttle sensitivity.

ecoIncreased Fuel Economy:
APR’s Calibration Engineers paid close attention to several parameters directly related to fuel economy, especially while cruising at highway speeds. Depending on your driving style and fuel quality, you may see better miles per gallon!

vmaxSpeed Limiter:
APR’s ECU upgrade increases the vehicle's top speed limiter for blistering sprints around the track or across the Autobahn without the speed limiter shutting down your fun!

Left Foot BrakingLeft Foot Braking:
APR's Left Foot Braking feature allows more control over the vehicle’s throttle. The factory equipped vehicle's throttle input is disabled while pressing the accelerator and brake at the same time. Left Foot Braking, a common motorsport driving technique, allows the driver complete control over the vehicle’s throttle and braking system, which may give the vehicle the edge it needs at the track. As is with all features APR adds to the ECU, this feature may be removed upon request.

The APR Development Difference

DirectPort ProgrammingAPR DirectPort Programming:
APR’s patented DirectPort Programming is now available for the Simos 8.5 ECU! Any APR Dealer in the world, connected to the Internet, has direct access to APR’s latest ECU upgrades for loading directly over the vehicle's OBD-II port. This completely eliminates the need to remove and open the ECU for currently available files and can be uninstalled at any time without a trace!

APR ECU ExplorerAPR ECU Explorer:
APR’s proprietary ECU Explorer gives APR’s Calibration Engineers unparalleled access to the vehicle’s entire engine management system. Typical commercially available data logging tools, used by most tuners, only allow logging up to 12 engine-operating variables at extremely low data rates. These tools are also limited to a small, specific list of variables. APR’s ECU Explorer is capable of logging every variable found within the ECU. It’s capable of logging well over 100 variables at once with data rates as high as 100 samples per second. Synchronous data logging is available for fine-tuning.

APR ECU ComposerAPR ECU Composer:
APR’s proprietary ECU Composer is used for altering the engine management system. With full access to every table, map and variable within the ECU, APR’s Calibration Engineers are not limited to a handful of maps as is common for most tuning companies. ECU Composer takes calibration to a new level on the 3.0 TFSI with APR's Quick Flashing. APR’s Calibration Engineers can reflash the ECU only a minute later rather than waiting 10 to 20 minutes between each flash.

APR ECU AssemblyAPR ECU Assembly:
APR’s Electrical Engineers have the ability to alter the code structure of the ECU to add features not available from the factory. Through code levels changes, APR's Engineers are able to add features to the ECU. Other changes allow higher torque limit than those achievable through only modifying calibration data or using piggyback devices as is the case for many tuners. This allows APR's engineers to not require DSG software to meet or exceed advertised gains. On the highly modified end, this allows APR to make Stage III Turbo Upgrades operate as if intended by the OEM. For most 3.0T owners, the advantage of this ability is the addition of APR’s patented EMCS Functions. EMCS puts the control of the engine’s operation at your fingertips and allows for additional features and options to be installed to your ECU.
