APR Tuned RS3 Runs Deeper into the 9's with a New Record| 07/18/2018
APR Tuned RS3 Runs Deeper into the 9's with a New Record
APR has raised the bar once again, resulting in a new record for the 2.5 TFSI EVO platform. An exciting 9.722 second quarter mile elapsed time was achieved at Montgomery Raceway Park on July 16th, 2018 and backed up with five 9.7 second passes. Many may recall this is the same vehicle that was the first RS3 into the 9's, owned by Keith Brantley. Results were achieved using a new hybrid turbocharger and various upcoming APR hardware modifications on an unopened stock engine long-block and transmission, in a density altitude of roughly 3,000 FT.
Keith's vehicle setup and modifications were as follows:
2018 Audi RS3 2.5 TFSI APR ECU / TCU Upgrade (Ethanol) EC/SRM Drop-in Stock-Housing Turbo APR MPI Injectors with EC/SRM LPFP APR Carbon Fiber Intake with APR Cast Inlet APR Intercooler APR Cast Race DP with Downturns APR Subframe Insert APR Lowering Springs Forgeline Wheels with Hoosier DR2 Tires Seats / Trunk Tools Removed and LW Battery
Overall the outing was a success. Keith's RS3 clenched a new personal best, and the new overall record for the platform. However, we're not done yet! After pouring over the data, we've found several ways to improve the record by helping the vehicle transfer more of the new found power and torque to the track. Stay tuned for future updates!
Keith's RS3 will be on display at Waterfest at Atco, NJ this weekend, July 21st and 22nd. Come visit and see the vehicle in person!
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!
