APR is pleased to present the ultimate engine control unit (ECU) upgrade for the MQB platform MK7 Golf R and Leon Cupra with the new 2.0 TSI Generation 3 engine, now available for all ROW models!

APR’s ECU upgrade is available in octane-specific variations and is conveniently flashed to the vehicle’s factory ECU through the OBD-II port without any physical modification to the factory ECU.


APR’s ECU upgrades are one of the best horsepower-per-dollar modifications for the new 2.0T engine.

Large gains were seen throughout the power band, including an additional 95 ft-lbs of torque and 85 horsepower. Even higher figures were achieved using race fuel.
