APR - ECU Upgrade - 3.6 VR6 - B6 Passat / CC, Mk1 Touareg, Audi Q7


Please note that your vehicle must be present in order to program your ECU. To schedule an appointment, please feel free to contact us.

APR is pleased to present the ultimate ECU Upgrade for the 3.6L FSI VR6 with Bosch MED9 Engine Management.

After long nights and many hours of testing, developing and more testing, we’re pleased to offer you an ECU recalibration that is second to none. APR’s extensive research and development provides you with a powerful ECU upgrade with no loss of drivability or reliability. Expect faster acceleration, improved throttle response and more power across the entire power band.

APR’s 3.6L FSI VR6 ECU Upgrade is an expertly recalibrated engine control strategy that primarily remaps the engine’s air fuel ratio and ignition timing, within the factory Bosch MED9 ECU, to provide smooth and reliable power as if intended by the OEM.  APR’s ECU Upgrade is developed to work within the OEM and Tier 1 Supplier specifications for engine component stress tolerances and performance specifications. Available in octane-specific variations, APR’s calibrations allow you to take advantage of fuel quality available in your area.

Available Fuel Grades: North American 91, 93 and 100 octanes.

Stage I ECU Upgrade

The APR Stage I ECU Upgrade gives you higher peak numbers of 301 HP/283 FT-LBS on 93 (R+M)/2 octane. As much as 12 HP and 23 FT-LBS of torque are available through the power band. APR’s ECU Upgrade is the best power per dollar modification for the new 3.6L FSI VR6 and gives it just the extra edge these cars lack from the factory without pushing the limits. With factory-like smoothness and drivability, APR’s ECU upgrade will fill the void in an otherwise excellent car.

APR chips are available in an octane specific version for the octane of gasoline that you typically run in your car. The power that the chip makes also depends on which ECU is in your vehicle. The Bosch MED9 ECU ECU can be upgraded via DirectPort Programming.
