APR 1.8T Stage 3 GTI at the Dragestrip
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 email@example.com 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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 email@example.com MPH and firstname.lastname@example.org 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
APR Stage 3 B8 A4 Quarter Mile| 01/25/2016
On Sunday, January 24th, we headed to Montgomery Motorsport Park to test our new APR Stage III EFR6758 Turbocharger System in the quarter mile. The car was driven to the track in its currently daily driven form, on street tires, with 93 octane fuel and a full interior, in an effort to show real world results most customers will experience on a day-to-day basis. Several passes were conducted, resulting in record breaking pass after record breaking pass. Ultimately, Trevor@APR, the owner of the vehicle, was able to achieve a email@example.com MPH after cutting a 1.733 60 FT time!
The fueling system was unmodified, resulting in power limitations below the capabilities of the turbocharger system. Temperature at the track during the record pass was roughly 50F, resulting in a density altitude of roughly -575 feet. Unfortunately, the negative density attitude did not result in a sizable performance benefit compared to running in warmer conditions due the fueling system limitations. However, beneficial to APR customers in warmer climates, the above results are still applicable.
As temperature drops and air density increases, so does the need for more fuel to satisfied the air fuel ratios prescribed by APR's calibration experts. To safely prevent the engine from running out of fuel in cooler conditions, APR's calibration experts have calibrated the ECU to reduce boost pressure while targeting the same power levels. Conversely, during hotter conditions, the ECU increase boost pressure
APR Open PEX Intake System for the 1.8T/2.0T EA888 Gen 3 (MQB)| 09/30/2021
The APR Open PEX Intake System is the best dollar-per-horsepower intake system for the 1.8T/2.0T Engine! We’ve maximized performance and sound dramatically by reducing pressure drop and increasing airflow. This translates to more horsepower and torque, and less physical strain on the turbocharger. The system looks great, sounds amazing, and produces more horsepower and torque you can feel.
APR Porsche 2019+ Cayenne S / S Coupe 2.9T ECU Upgrades!| 09/09/2021
We're excited to announce our Engine Control Unit (ECU) Upgrades are now available for the Porsche Cayenne S and S Coupe (9Y) 2.9 TFSI engine with the Bosch MG1 ECU! Expect massive gains with up to 484-538 HP and 521-590 FT-LBS of torque on tap, depending on octane, from this simple software upgrade.
APR's ECU Upgrades are the best dollar-per-horsepower modification one can make to improve engine performance. The upgrades dramatically increase horsepower and torque, making for an exceptionally quicker and more exciting vehicle. This is made possible through APR's optimization of the factory engine management system to take full advantage of the engine's capabilities, without needing any end user adjustment. The ECU Upgrades are available with various features and supported octane levels and each stage is compatible with most typical bolt-on modifications. The software is installed to the vehicle's factory ECU through the OBD-II port once the ECU is unlocked, resulting in a clean and headache-free install. Furthermore, for those looking for tuning with a limited powertrain warranty, APR Plus has you covered!
