Audi (B8) A4 APR Software Update!

Posted on February 27, 2015 – 9:00 am

With over half a decade of development poured into this platform, APR’s Engineers are pleased to deliver several free upgrades to our existing customers. APR Stage I, Stage II and their K04 Turbocharger ECU upgrades are now revised with APR’s new calibration strategies designed to produce a fantastic driving experience with more power and torque on tap!

APR’s calibration experts spent months working with the various ECU, hardware and octane configurations to deliver a driving experience second to none. Major improvements were made to the way the throttle behaves, leaving the driver to feel more connected to the vehicle than ever before. With control and response maximized, APR’s engineers set out to increase power while keeping factory comforts in mind during part throttle driving. Engine load, valve lift, cam phasing and boost levels were all optimized to ensure the engine was breathing as freely as possible for maximum output. Ignition, lambda and other aspects of the direct injection fueling system were tweaked to raise and refine power further. The end result is a fantastic leap in performance and response that wakes up the engine sooner in the RPM band and carries horsepower and torque further towards redline.

Please visit each product page for full details, including our performance charts at the wheels, crank and the gain over stock using 91, 93 and 100 octanes!

Achtuning is excited to announce that APR’s world renowned DirectPort Programming (DPP) will be available for nearly all Audi, Volkswagen, Seat, Skoda and other VAG vehicles produced between 2008 to today!  Gone are the days where most ECUs need to be removed and opened to install an APR ECU Upgrade.  DPP will allow us to flash APR ECU Upgrades directly to your MED17.x and EDC17.x ECU customers over the factory OBD-II diagnostic port with ease.  Welcome to a better world of APR ECU tuning.  We call it Performance Without Compromise!

Not only is APR’s DPP stealthy and less labor intensive, but also allows the release of several highly anticipated APR ECU Upgrades.  Customers of the newer flex fuel B8.5 A4 & A5 2.0Ts, various newer 3.0 TDIs and newer TT, CC & Tiguan 2.0Ts will be elated to know APR’s ECU Upgrades will be available shortly.  Furthermore, with the ability to distribute ECU Upgrades without requiring new flashing devices, APR’s Calibration Engineers are now able to work on various TDI and newer gasoline models like the recently released 1.4 TSI.
