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 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.
