    APR ECU Upgrade Stages

    Our ECU Upgrades are available in multiple configurations. Installation of additional performance hardware, such as an intake system, may provide further performance improvements.

    APR Stage 1

    The APR Stage 1 ECU Upgrade is the first step towards tuning your engine. It produces up to 634-653 HP and 420-427 FT-LBS of torque with gains as high as:


    • 86-104 HP and 53-64 FT-LBS of torque at the wheels (540 HP Model)
    • 47-66 HP and 29-40 FT-LBS of torque at the wheels (580 HP Model)
    • 17-35 HP and 13-30 FT-LBS of torque at the wheels (610 HP Model)


    APR Stage 1 is available for 91 AKI, 93 AKI, 100 AKI, 104 AKI, and E60-E85 fuel grades in North America, and 95 RON, 98 RON, 104 RON, 108 RON, and E60-E85 in the Rest of the World.


    Please note, our E85 software is not a full flex fuel program. In this mode the engine is only designed to work on E85, as found directly at the pump, including both summer and winter blends from E60-E85. Using traditional pump fuels in this mode may result in engine damage. Do not manually blend with traditional pump fuel or race fuels or use race specific barrels of E85. To ensure proper E85 content levels, APR recommends using an E85 content sensor. Before using Ethanol, educate yourself and follow our switching guide.

    APR Plus

    APR Plus is our APR Stage 1 ECU Upgrade with our limited powertrain warranty and it’s the first step towards tuning your engine. It produces up to 634 HP and 420 FT-LBS of torque. Please check our warranty manual to understand modifications supported by APR Plus.
