APR 2.0 TSI Generation 3 Acceleration Testing!
APR 1.8 TSI Generation 3 Acceleration Testing!| 01/23/2014
The APR Stage I ECU Upgrade is designed to work without requiring other changes to the vehicle's hardware. With the ECU Upgrade alone, APR's Calibration Experts measured higher peak figures of 290 ft-lbs of torque and 245 horsepower with 93 AKI octane fuel. Large gains were seen throughout the power band, including an additional 92 ft-lbs of torque and 62 horsepower. The increase in power directly translates to an exceptionally quicker vehicle. Using advanced GPS measuring devices, APR's engineers conducted several acceleration tests. During the 100-200 KPH sprint, the APR Stage I equipped vehicle crossed the finish line 9.845 seconds quicker, resulting in an outstanding 35% improvement!
APR's ECU upgrade is the best power per dollar modification for the new 1.8 TSI engine and takes the vehicle's performance to similar levels typically reserved for higher output, sporty models, without pushing the limits. With factory-like smoothness and drivability, APR's ECU upgrade will fill the void in an otherwise excellent vehicle.

APR MK7 Golf R - Stage 2 Quarter Mile!| 05/13/2015
APR is pleased to announce the Stage II ECU Upgrade for the Golf R and S3 is now available for the North American market with other markets around the world to follow. APR's Stage II ECU Upgrade is designed to work with APR's upcoming Cast Race DP Exhaust System and builds upon APR's already incredible Stage I ECU Upgrade. When combined with APR's Intake System, peak power and torque figures grow further over Stage I to produce an astonishing 382 horsepower and 387 ft-lbs of torque! The additional hardware and tuning allows the turbo to spool much sooner, and ultimately results in a gain of 36 horsepower over Stage I and a staggering 100 horsepower over stock! APR anticipates the new AWD Cast Race DP System to be available later this year.
The additional power directly translates to a quicker vehicle in real world testing. APR was able to achieve a quarter mile pass of email@example.com MPH on an unmodified Golf R and as quick as firstname.lastname@example.org MPH at stage I with 93 octane fuel. By adding APR's upcoming cast downpipe system, Stage II ECU Upgrade and 93 octane fuel, APR's Golf R set a new stock turbo world record pass and shaved more than a second off of the stock time with an email@example.com MPH pass! This was achieved at Montgomery Motorsport Park in Alabama, an NHRA certified track, at full vehicle weight with APR 19x8.5 wheels and Michelin PSS tires.

Our new suite of MG1 ECU software comes after months of extensive research and development that is typically absent from the aftermarket. Our upgrade makes the engine more powerful and more exciting. We’ve extensively calibrated the system to work flawlessly on the track, while retaining safety routines to protect your engine in the most demanding scenarios. This was all made possible by our engineering team's pursuit of perfection. Development vehicles were outfitted with additional sensors, including turbo shaft speed sensors, thermocouples, transducers, and more, along with our high speed direct RAM logging equipment, to feed valuable data to the team for analysis. After thousands of hours of testing and tuning we created new calibrations that are fine tuned for several octanes and contain hundreds of map changes, with a vast array of safety features built in.
