April 11th, 2020

We’ve updated our stock turbo DQ500 TCU Upgrade to version 1.0.3a. The update addresses an issue where some vehicles would hit the rev limiter between shifts. If you are not currently experiencing this behavior, the update is not necessary as there are no other changes.

To get the update, please visit an APR Dealer at your earliest convenience.

April 4th, 2020

We’re excited to announce our Engine Control Unit (ECU) Upgrades are now available for the Audi S4, S5, and SQ5 (B9) 3.0 TFSI engine with the Bosch MG1 ECU! Expect massive gains with up to 431-480 HP and 467-549 FT-LBS of torque on tap, depending on octane, from this simple software upgrade.

Our new suite of MG1 ECU software comes after months of extensive research and development that is typically absent from the aftermarket. Our upgrade makes the engine more powerful and more exciting. We’ve extensively calibrated the system to work flawlessly on the track, while retaining safety routines to protect your engine in the most demanding scenarios. This was all made possible by our engineering team’s pursuit of perfection. Development vehicles were outfitted with additional sensors, including turbo shaft speed sensors, thermocouples, transducers, and more, along with our high speed direct RAM logging equipment, to feed valuable data to the team for analysis. After thousands of hours of testing and tuning we created new calibrations that are fine tuned for several octanes, including ethanol, and contain hundreds of map changes, with a vast array of safety features built in.

The Ultimate Ignition Coil Upgrade is Here!

December 19th, 2019

APR Ignition Coils are designed to be a direct plug-and-play upgrade to factory coils, and provide greater energy output, ensuring a stronger and more consistent spark. The commonplace replacement of factory ignition coils with those taken from higher output Audi RS models, such as the 2.5T, is popularly believed to provide greater energy output. However, testing proves that they are no more powerful than the factory coils that are found on 1.8T and 2.0T engines. APR Ignition Coils increase energy output by 10%. They are a direct upgrade or replacement, and come with the coveted red housing made popular by the Audi R8! Read More

APR DQ500 TCU Upgrade Now Available for the RS3 and TT RS!

November 10th, 2019

APR is pleased to present the ultimate Transmission Control Unit (TCU) Upgrade for the DQ500 7-Speed DSG / S-Tronic Transmission!

APR’s TCU Upgrade dramatically improves upon the DQ500 transmission’s function, drivability, and performance through a myriad of enhancement and custom features. Normal daily driving is smoother as we’ve improved upon the normal quirks and complaints associated with the driving experience. Sporty driving is far more capable with increased torque capacity, clamping pressure, faster shifting times, more capable launch control, and more! Both are optimised to deliver faster acceleration by matching the power output delivered by our ECU Upgrade. This all comes with customisable features you can choose while flashing the TCU to personalise the transmission to your desire! Lastly the software loads to the factory TCU through the OBD-II port, resulting in a clean and headache-free install. Read more on our product page.

APR Roll-Control Coilover System for MQB Vehicles!

November 8th, 2019

The APR Roll-Control Coilover Suspension System is designed to dramatically improve handling while delivering a stylish visual upgrade to your vehicle’s appearance. This is all made possible while retaining a comfortable and exciting daily driving experience expected from a high end system. With this system, you will experience a harmonious balance between the springs, struts/dampers, and bump stops thanks to a careful selection of spring, and damping only possible through the use of non-generic components.

This system is built to last. Unlike bargain systems, we only use premium materials. The struts are made from stainless steel, with anodized aluminum spring seats, allowing years of height adjustment without worry of rust destroying the threads. The springs are made from a high tensile strength chrome silicon which greatly resists sagging. Spring seats feature a locking collar, instead of a set screw, which prevents a common failure. Thick stainless steel stabilizer bar end link mounting tabs are strong and allow adjustment for proper orientation. There’s no worry of end link binding issues, and they will not bend like thin aluminum systems found on even some of the higher end systems. Lastly, each shock and damper is dyno tested for quality assurance. …
