APR 1.8 TSI Tiptronic Quarter Mile Testing (EA888 Gen 3 Passat)
APR S6/S7 Stage 2 Quarter Mile with APR Cast Race DP!| 02/08/2016
Using the upcoming APR 4.0 TFSI Cast Exhaust Race DP and new APR Stage II ECU Upgrade, we set out to test the C7 S6 and C7 S7 in various configurations, ultimately resulting in two new and exciting records!
The S6 was outfitted with the APR Stage II ECU Upgrade, APR TCU Upgrade, APR Cast Downpipes, 93 octane fuel and all season tires on factory wheels at full vehicle weight. With a 1.733 60 foot time, the best result of the day was an firstname.lastname@example.org MPH. The heavier S7 was outfitted with the same mods, but ran with Sunoco GT260+ 104 Octane fuel and Michelin tires on APR Wheels, again at full vehicle weight. With a 1.678 60 FT time the best result of the day was an email@example.com MPH! The density altitude remained close to 0 feet all day according to dragtimes.com. For comparison sake, our best results with the factory equipped vehicle was firstname.lastname@example.org MPH and email@example.com MPH using only our Stage I ECU Upgrade, and 93 octane fuel.
Over the course of the day, we ran several times, backing the 11.3 pump fuel results. We frustratingly backed the 11.0 multiple times, mere hundreds away from our goal of a 10.9 on factory turbo. The video does not show the fastest runs as those were captured after the film crew left as they had prior Super Bowl Sunday obligations.
On the dyno, the Stage II ECU Upgrade, paired with the APR Cast Race DP offers a substantial leap in power and torque, which contributes heavily to to the faster times at the track. Stay tuned for the official release
Tyler Aul's MK7 GTI goes firstname.lastname@example.org MPH at Waterfest 23!| 07/18/2017
The bar has been risen, again. This past weekend, at Waterfest 23, Tyler Aul, of USP Motorsports, piloted his MK7 GTI into uncharted territory, breaking the 140 MPH barrier at two separate drag strips on the same day. Ultimately, Tyler captured the quarter mile world record for both trap speed and elapsed time, for any MQB platform vehicle anywhere in the world. True to his outspoken nature, he set the record with hundreds of spectators gazing on. It was a sight to be seen as he raced alongside an Alpha 9 GTR, pulling out a better trap and ET to the crowd's delight. Congratulations Tyler!
Tyler's vehicle is a VW MK7 GTI with a 2.0 TSI EA888 Gen 3 engine and DSG Transmission. Unlike the typical record setters on the MQB platform, his vehicle only has front wheel drive and is a non-power pack model. The engine is outfitted with an off the shelf APR EFR7163 Turbocharger System with several new development and prototype parts and software.
The EFR7163 has proven to be shockingly capable. It's designed for the circuit and daily-driving with excellent transient response, making it a pleasure to drive in all scenarios compared to larger, and laggier turbos often more ideal for drag racing. However, despite the smaller size, it was able to propel the GTI to over 140 MPH in the quarter and clench the record even under less than ideal conditions. Through this exercise, APR's engineers were able to further identify areas for improvement which may result in exciting new hardware and
APR License Plates and Frames| 06/15/2021
APR license plate frames and vanity plates are the perfect addition for any APR tuned vehicle! They are made from sturdy and rust-resistant T304 stainless steel. They are thick enough such they won't flop around like throw-away handouts you find in a typical swag-bag at car shows. They feature a fade and scratch resistant black powder coated finish with laser etching for the APR logo. Anti-vibration backside plate tabs keep it firmly in place. Four slotted install holes give you the perfect fitment with a solid connection to the car. The nice hardware hiders give it a clean finish too, hiding your unsightly plate screws. Fitment is universal. Some have said this product will increase the value of the vehicle, while others have made horsepower gains, but we can't comment on either.
