VW MK7 GTI / SKODA OCTAVIA VRS 2.0T ECU UPGRADE APR is pleased to present the ultimate engine control unit (ECU) upgrade for the Generation 3 2.0 TSI engine as found in the MQB platform vehicles. 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.
The APR Stage I ECU Upgrade is designed to work without requiring other changes to the vehicle’s hardware. With the ECU Upgrade alone, APR's Calibration experts measured higher peak figures of 235kw (316hp) and 516nm (381lb/ft) of torque (Flywheel) on 98 octane fuel measured on APR's in house Dynapack dyno. Large gains were seen throughout the power band and even higher figures were achieved using 104 octane race fuel. The increase in power directly translates to an exceptionally quicker vehicle. Using advanced GPS measuring devices and the local IHRA certified drag strip, APR's engineers conducted several acceleration tests. During the quarter mile sprint, the APR Stage I equipped vehicle crossed the finish line 1.094 seconds quicker, with an exit speed 13.3mph faster!

We prepared 2 golf r's equipped with APR products.
The blue VW Golf R with APR stage 2 plus kit, is full bodied and straight off the street with 19 inch street tyres and a standard dsg tune. This car ran the quarter mile in 12.3 seconds at 182 kmh.
The white VW Golf R with APR stage 3 kit, has interior removed, 18 inch semi slicks and is dsg tuned. On race fuel, this car ran the quarter mile in 11.6 seconds, which was the best we could achieve on the night. Previously this car ran a quarter mile time of 11.3 seconds and was full bodied.
We had a very cold night with very low track temperatures. We had a lot of traction issues with the stage 3 car.
We ended up lowering to tyre pressures to 16 psi to get a time of 11.6 sec on the night.
We are proud to announce the long awaited APR tune will be ready this week for the mk7 gti golf,this process will be direct port programming. Estimated time to install will take max 40 minutes of your time.Figures will be posted soon. Please contact us for more info.
