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 4.0 TFSI (EA824) V8 Ignition Coils for ~2013-2019 Model Year Audi and Bentley Vehicles| 01/19/2022
APR Ignition Coils are designed to be a direct plug-and-play upgrade to factory coils, and provide greater energy output, ensuring a stronger and more consistent spark. The commonplace replacement of factory ignition coils with those taken from the higher output Audi R8 is popularly believed to provide greater energy output. However, testing proves that they are no more powerful than the factory coils that are found on other engines. APR Ignition Coils increase energy output by up to 6% over stock. They are a direct upgrade or replacement, and come with a unique red housing!
