APR EMCS Program Switching for the B8 S4/S5 3.0 TFSI| 09/08/2011
APR Presents: 3.0 TFSI EMCS Program Switching
Over the past two years, APR's engineering teams worked intimately with the new Continental/Siemens Simos 8.4 ECU to deliver the world's first true ECU upgrade for the 3.0 TFSI. This granted APR unrestricted access to every map, variable and function within the ECU to deliver expertly calibrated performance software as if intended by the OEM. APR is pleased to announce another world's first: APR's patented 3.0 TFSI EMCS Program Switching.
APR's Patented EMCS Program Switching adds extra functionality to the factory ECU giving users the ability to switch programs right from the driver seat without ever purchasing another piece of hardware. Using the factory cruise control stalk, APR's EMCS offers the following features:
Programs switching gives the user the ability to switch between the exact same stock calibration originally loaded on the ECU, fuel quality specific APR performance calibrations for various premium and race fuel octanes as well as a reduced output 'Valet' mode designed to prevent misuse of the vehicle by unauthorized individuals.
Security lockout enables the user to prevent unauthorized individuals from using any APR EMCS functionality without use of a user defined security code. When enabled, APR EMCS is completely invisible. Because no external hardware is required an extra level of security is added by preventing others from obtaining hardware devices to unlock your EC
Euro Spec MK8 GTI and MK4 S3 at APR USA!| 01/18/2021
Our new European Spec VW GTI (MK8) and Audi S3 (8Y/MK4) Hatchback are here! We imported both of these from Germany and shipped them on over for development. We've spent the past few months working with APR Deutschland / Stoll Automotive to begin development on both vehicles, including fitting many of our existing parts. Some fit, some will fit, some required modification, and some are a total ground up project, but we're deep into it already. Stay tuned for this exciting new platform! We're really excited to see where we can take the new 2.0T EA888 Gen 4 engines! And if you haven't already, catch our live review of the cars here: http://goapr.io/mk8live
