APR MK7 Golf R Acceleration
APR MK7 GTI ECU Upgrade - Acceleration Testing| 07/16/2014
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 381 ft-lbs of torque and 316 horsepower with 93 AKI octane fuel. Large gains were seen throughout the power band, including an additional 114 ft-lbs of torque and 87 horsepower. Even higher figures were acheived using 100 AKI octane race fuel. The increase in power directly translates to an exceptionally quicker vehicle. Using advanced GPS measuring devices and the local IHRA certified drag strip, APR's engineers conducted several acceleration tests. During the quarter mile sprint, the APR Stage I equipped vehicle crossed the finish line 1.093 seconds quicker, with an exit speed 13.3 MPH faster!
APR's ECU upgrade is the best power per dollar modification for the new 2.0 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.
The APR Boost Gauge| 12/22/2014
The APR Boost Gauge System features a high quality and accurate electronic 52mm gauge with smooth and precise movement thanks to microprocessor driven stepper motor. The gauge's anti-fogging polycarbonate lens allows reliable vent-mounted operation without fogging as is common on units without this design specification. Visual design cues were borrowed from the MK7 Golf, GTI and Golf R instrument clusters to deliver a dimmable LED backlit face with multiple needle colors that look right at home within the vehicle's interior. The gauge seats neatly inside a high-quality injection-molded vent mounted pod, resembling the OEM design, allows airflow to continue past the unit and still allows operation of the vent airflow control.
APR's plug-and-play wiring harness eliminates the headaches typically associated with integrating gauges into the factory system. The harness simply plugs into the gauge and into the factory wiring harness, eliminating the need to cut, splice and permanently alter the factory wring with specialty tools. It's quick, simple, and carries the quality one would expect from APR.
A high-resolution 3 Bar MAP sensor mounts conveniently and tidily within the engine bay on a simple and effective firewall mounting bracket and provides the gauge with a means for reading boost and vacuum signals. OEM style wiring harness covers protect the wiring harness and provide a cleaner install and appearance. The MAP sensor needs a physical reference line to the intake manifol
