APR’s Stage I ECU Upgrade is now available for all new Passat / Jetta / Beetle models! Previously unsupported late model 2014+ Simos 18 ECU equipped vehicles are now supported and available at APR dealers across the world via an OBD-II port flash!


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 293 ft-lbs of torque and 242 horsepower with 93 AKI octane fuel. Large gains were seen throughout the power band, including an additional 99 ft-lbs of torque and 68 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!
