After months of long nights and many hours of dyno work APR is pleased to offer you chip tuning that is second to none. APR worked hand in hand with many customers to deliver a chip that works. Expect huge increases in low-end torque, improved throttle response and a smoother, more powerful top end.
Available Fuel Grades: North American 91, 93 and 100 octanes.
APR ECU Upgrade Stages
APR’s ECU Upgrades are available in multiple stages, supporting various octanes both with or without any hardware modifications. Software is available for use with a high flow intake system, high flow downpipe exhaust system or both. All stages are fully compatible with an upgraded intercooler, catback exhaust, or other minor bolt on modifications. Finally, each stage is offered with special “Low Torque” software, designed to limit peak torque for use with an unmodified factory manual clutch.
Requirements: Stage I requires no hardware upgrades.Stage W/ intake requires hi flow intake to acheive proper gains. Stage II simply requires an APR High Flow Downpipe or Turboback Exhaust System.
Stage I ECU Upgrade
APR Stage I ECU Upgrade
The APR Stage I ECU Upgrade requires no hardware modifications and is available with 253-261 HP and 309-317 FT-LBS of torque, depending on octane. Gains as high at 67-71 HP and 93-101 FT-LBS of torque are available throughout the power band! Lower torque files are available, limiting torque to 292-299 FT-LBS. This software should be used with the factory intake and factory downpipe.
APR Stage I ECU Upgrade With Aftermarket Intake
The APR Stage I (Intake) ECU Upgrade requires a high flow intake system and is available with 257-268 HP and 312-336 FT-LBS torque, depending on octane. Gains as high as 70-84 HP and 95-120 FT-LBS of torque are available throughout the power band! Lower torque files are available, limiting torque to 295-300 FT-LBS. This software must be used with a high flow intake system and factory exhaust DP.

APR programming is 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 Mk6 2.0T TSI ECU can be upgraded via DirectPort Programming. For more information on DirectPort Programming, please contact NGP Racing at email@example.com.

Now you can upgrade your ECU with APR's Motorsport Launch Limiter and No Lift Shift Option at Only $99.99 each...
APR’s Motorsport Launch Limiter is an optional feature that eliminates turbo lag and provides a user adjustable launching RPM and user adjustable launching boost to aid in vehicle acceleration from a complete stand still. Simply hold the clutch and accelerator while the vehicle is stationary and the engine’s RPM will hold at a predefined limit while boost pressure builds using a “clean,” catalytic converter safe, strategy. The amount of boost available at the launch is adjusted by how far the accelerator pedal is depressed. With the vehicle stationary, handbrake applied and clutch disengaged, the driver can set the launch RPM by raising the engine’s RPM and pressing the brake pedal to set and save the desired launching RPM. With practice, this method can result in violent acceleration off the line! This feature is for manual transmissions only.
APR’s Motorsport No-Lift Shift is an optional feature that allows the driver to maximize acceleration by reducing power, boost and time lost during a gear change. With the vehicle above 20 km/h and the accelerator pedal held above 98%, during a gear change, the strategy activates. The throttle remains open and boost pressure is not vented, resulting in more power immediately after a shift. This is achieved using a “clean,” catalytic converter safe, strategy, while the ECU automatically sets the appropriate time necessary for a torque intervention, allowing proper syncro alignment. No end user adjustment is necessary. The driver simply focuses on shifting as fast as possible! This feature is for manual transmissions only.
Please Note: An APR dealer may need to request the new V2.x update, and the optional No Lift Shift and Launch Control features, if not available at the time of install.
All APR chip upgrades use encryption, which serve several purposes. Mainly, it keeps prying eyes out of our software and prevents lesser companies from copying the chip and degrading the product. Also, all APR software is undetectable to a dealers VAG diagnostic tool.
All APR chip software comes with lifetime free updates. There is also a lifetime warranty against defects in the software. All chip upgrades have a 30-day Money Back Guarantee.
APR Mobile installs on smart phones, tablets and other devices and provides a wireless connection to the vehicle’s engine control unit or ECU. Once connected, the device can be used to access APR’s EMCS program switching features, read and clear fault codes and data log the ECU at high data rates not found on other commercially available tools. The app can also be used to access APR’s latest news articles, locate dealers in APR’s network and review previously saved data logging sessions.
