APR ECU Upgrade for the 4.2T V8 C5 RS6
"There is only one APR."
For over 10 years, no one has been able to simulate what APR's ECU Upgrade accomplishes. Our staff of engineers has broken the mold of "performance tuning" by developing new technology that allows for the development of the highest quality performance available. APR has revolutionized "chip tuning" with unparalleled innovation. There is only one performance engineering firm that offers software so refined and complete with so many options. There is only one APR.
"Extra steps must be taken."
From the development process to the technical features, no other tuner offers the same innovation and refinement that you'll get from APR. Many months have been spent developing the best ECU Upgrade available for the 987 S. We go far beyond the traditional steps of just "leaning out the air fuel ratio" and "advancing the timing". Extra steps must be taken. Typical data logging software used by most tuners is capable of capturing 4 variables at 3 samples per second. APR's proprietary data acquisition software captures as many as 30 variables at around 22Hz. That's an incredible 55 times more data gathered per second.
"...extra steps other tuners can't take."
To dramatically increase power and maintain factory drivability there are many factors to be considered. This is where "55 times more data" goes from intangible numbers to a smoothness you can feel. It helps duplicate the characteristics normally found only from the factory. Such precise matching you will not find in other software. These are extra steps other tuners can't take.
"...any tuner in any market anywhere in the world."
The ECU Upgrade comes EMCS equipped (Enhanced Modular Chipping System). The "Extra steps" don't stop with the software development process. Our ECU Upgrade development far surpasses anything else offered by any tuner in any market anywhere in the world. We have left the traditional method of re-flashing a chip in the 90's and have moved on to the next generation of ECU Upgrade tuning. No longer are you limited to replacing one program with another program. With our EMCS, you can replace one program with four programs and several ECU features.
Expect 512 HP and 529 FT-LBS on 91 octane and 520 HP and 538 FT-LBS on 93 octane fuel.
APR EMCS Programs and Features
APR’s EMCS, Enhanced Modular Chipping System, brings selectable programs and features to your factory ECU, all without the need to purchase external hardware. Others have attempted to imitate EMCS with external switching devices that only replace or multiply portions of a "base" calibration. However, EMCS has the ability to completely rewrite the entire operating map data, giving each map a complete set of calibration changes. APR’s EMCS features and programs modes are activated via your OEM cruise control buttons. Your cruise control will continue to function as normal.
To learn how to activate the programs and features, choose the vehicle's cruise control type from APR EMCS Owner's Manual.
Program switching allows the user to cycle through up to four different engine calibrations and operating modes all without the need for external hardware.
By selecting stock mode, the ECU calibration is reset to the factory calibration. The engine will run as it did before purchasing APR software.
APR Performance Modes:
APR's octane-specific calibrations are available for various premium and race fuels around the world. Each performance mode is a completely new calibration, altered specifically for the characteristics of the fuel quality selected.
Fault Code Erase:
Fault code erase allows the user to erase and reset engine related trouble codes and ECU adaptation data without using a specialty tool.
Security lockout prevents unauthorized individuals from using APR's EMCS functionality. When enabled, APR's EMCS features will appear completely invisible until a user specified 2 to 4-digit security code is entered.
When activated, Anti-Theft prevents normal operation of the engine even if the factory key is used. The vehicle will be completely immobilized until a user specified 2 to 4-digit security code is entered.
APR's Valet Mode protects your vehicle from becoming an expensive toy for unauthorized individuals. By enabling Valet Mode, the vehicle's performance is extremely limited.
The APR Development Difference
APR ECU Explorer:
APR’s proprietary ECU Explorer gives APR’s Calibration Engineers unparalleled access to the vehicle’s entire engine management system. Typical commercially available data logging tools, used by most tuners, only allow logging up to 12 engine-operating variables at extremely low data rates. These tools are also limited to a small, specific list of variables. APR’s ECU Explorer is capable of logging every variable found within the ECU with far more variables logged at once, at very high data rates.
APR ECU Composer:
APR’s proprietary ECU Composer is used for altering the engine management system. With full access to every table, map and variable within the ECU, APR’s Calibration Engineers are not limited to a handful of maps as is common for most tuning companies.
APR ECU Assembly:
APR’s Electrical Engineers have the ability to alter the code structure of the ECU. Through code levels changes, APR's Engineers are able to add features to the ECU. Other changes allow higher torque limits than those achievable through only modifying calibration data or using piggyback devices as is the case for many tuners. This allows APR's engineers to often not require transmission software to meet or exceed advertised gains. On the highly modified end, this often allows APR to make turbo upgrades operate without the need for external manual controllers.

How to purchase
Please use the APR Dealer Locater Tool to locate an APR Dealer, confirm availability and schedule an appointment. An APR Dealer will need to ship the vehicle's ECU and TCU to APR.
Please note vehicle manufacturers issue many ECU part numbers and revisions throughout their vehicle lineup. As such, some ECUs may be temporarily unavailable as new parts and/or revisions are released. If the vehicle’s ECU part number and revision is known, availability can be checked at any APR Dealer.
