APR S3 runs 10.5@130 MPH in the Quartermile
Tyler Aul's MK7 GTI goes email@example.com 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 Stage 3 B8 A4 Quarter Mile| 01/25/2016
On Sunday, January 24th, we headed to Montgomery Motorsport Park to test our new APR Stage III EFR6758 Turbocharger System in the quarter mile. The car was driven to the track in its currently daily driven form, on street tires, with 93 octane fuel and a full interior, in an effort to show real world results most customers will experience on a day-to-day basis. Several passes were conducted, resulting in record breaking pass after record breaking pass. Ultimately, Trevor@APR, the owner of the vehicle, was able to achieve a firstname.lastname@example.org MPH after cutting a 1.733 60 FT time!
The fueling system was unmodified, resulting in power limitations below the capabilities of the turbocharger system. Temperature at the track during the record pass was roughly 50F, resulting in a density altitude of roughly -575 feet. Unfortunately, the negative density attitude did not result in a sizable performance benefit compared to running in warmer conditions due the fueling system limitations. However, beneficial to APR customers in warmer climates, the above results are still applicable.
As temperature drops and air density increases, so does the need for more fuel to satisfied the air fuel ratios prescribed by APR's calibration experts. To safely prevent the engine from running out of fuel in cooler conditions, APR's calibration experts have calibrated the ECU to reduce boost pressure while targeting the same power levels. Conversely, during hotter conditions, the ECU increase boost pressure
APR Carbon Fiber Intake System for the Audi 2020+ S6/S7 (C8) is Here!| 06/18/2021
This is the ultimate intake upgrade for the Audi S6 and S7 (C8). It flows 33.5% more than stock, reduces pressure drop, and improves linearization across the turbos. This directly translates to +23 AWHP and +21 AWFT-LBS of torque making this a simple upgrade for more power you can feel.
APR License Plates and Frames| 06/15/2021
APR license plate frames and vanity plates are the perfect addition for any APR tuned vehicle! They are made from sturdy and rust-resistant T304 stainless steel. They are thick enough such they won't flop around like throw-away handouts you find in a typical swag-bag at car shows. They feature a fade and scratch resistant black powder coated finish with laser etching for the APR logo. Anti-vibration backside plate tabs keep it firmly in place. Four slotted install holes give you the perfect fitment with a solid connection to the car. The nice hardware hiders give it a clean finish too, hiding your unsightly plate screws. Fitment is universal. Some have said this product will increase the value of the vehicle, while others have made horsepower gains, but we can't comment on either.
