AWE Tuning Exhaust for VW (Mk7) GTI

Posted on October 29, 2014 – 4:59 pm

Achtuning is excited to announce the release of the Volkswagen Mk7 GTI Exhaust Suite, by AWE Tuning!

AWE Tuning has gone to extreme levels on this one; taking craftsmanship, simplicity of installation, and engineering ingenuity to new places:

  • Full T304 stainless system, 3” front to back.
  • Unlocks a potent max gain of 21hp and 24ft-lbs of torque at the crank — without software.
  • 200 cell HJS HD catalyst (Same cat that is found in AWE’s McLaren 650S system).
  • Available as Track Edition, Touring Edition, Performance Downpipe and Cat-Delete Performance Downpipe
  • Dyno-developed, street proven on the AWE Tuning in-house Mk7.
  • 102mm dual tip configuration.
  • No CEL on Exhausts and Performance Downpipe – Guaranteed. Even without spacers or software.
  • Perfect Fitment. Guaranteed.
  • AWE Tuning Lifetime Warranty (one year on Catalysts)

 

Four Generations Strong.
Producing an exhaust system for Volkswagen’s 7th generation GTI was no easy feat. Luckily AWE Tuning already has four generations of GTI performance under their belts. Merging decades of experience with hundreds of hours of prototyping, engineering, dyno testing and daily usage evaluation has output an exhaust system that is the ultimate compliment to GTI lineage. With options to go around, this is AWE Tuning’s finest GTI exhaust to date.

Simple. Better.
What may look like a simple design is actually one of their most comprehensive engineering feats to date. The exhaust is three simple parts, making it one of the easiest systems to install. The reconfiguration of the flex pipe on the Performance Downpipe ensures that stress goes where it should. And no 02 sensor spacers. And no exhaust paste needed. The list goes on. This exhaust offering is something special.

The line up:

Mk7 Touring Edition Exhaust
The intersection of performance and sophistication, the Touring Edition produces a civil tone while idling and cruising around, but give it the boot and unleash a “war-cry wail.”

  • Full T304 stainless system, 3” front to back.
  • 102mm dual tip configuration, Chrome Silver or Diamond Black.
  • Exhaust is three sections – making for the simplest install possible.
  • Straight through resonator and muffler.
  • AWE Tuning Lifetime Warranty.
  • AWE Tuning Fitment Guarantee.
  • AWE Tuning No CEL Guarantee.

 

Mk7 Track Edition Exhaust
The Mk7 GTI Track Edition Exhaust takes all of the hand-crafted engineering of the Touring Edition Exhaust, and replaces the front resonator with a straight pipe section for a more aggressive tone (and a more aggressive price to boot). Please note that this is a loud system and buyers should be aware. This product cannot be returned or exchanged based upon volume preference.

Mk7 Performance Downpipe
A potent max gain of 21hp and 24ft-lbs of torque at the crank without software when mated to the AWE Tuning Touring and Track Edition Exhaust systems. Designed to mate to the AWE Tuning exhaust or any other exhaust that bolts to factory locations, the AWE Tuning Mk7 GTI Performance Downpipe features an HJS 200 cell HD catalyst to keep the exhaust volume civilized, while maintaining increased flow over the restrictive factory converters.

  • Max gains of 21hp and 24ft-lbs of torque at the crank without software.
  • 3 inch, one-piece design. No pre-cat slip joint to leak.
  • Engineered flex pipe ensures that the downpipe moves with 2.0T engine – unlike other systems on the market.
  • No O2 Sensor spacers needed!
  • HJS 200 cell HD high-flow catalyst. (Only high-durability catalyst on the market for the GTI)
  • 4.5lbs lighter than the factory downpipe.
  • T304 stainless steel construction.
  • No CEL. Guaranteed.
  • Fitment. Guaranteed.
  • Lifetime Warranty on downpipe, one year warranty on catalyst.

Mk7 Cat-Delete Performance Downpipe
All of the bespoke engineering from the Performance Downpipe, minus the catalyst. Please note that due to the removal of the catalyst, the “No CEL Guarantee” is not applicable, and this product is not to be used on public roads. And it can’t be returned because of volume.


Volume. Simplified.

A good tool for your customers, from quiet to loud:

  • Touring Edition with factory downpipe.
  • Touring Edition with Performance Downpipe.
  • Touring Edition with Cat-Delete Performance Downpipe.
  • Track Edition with Performance Downpipe.
  • Track Edition with Cat-Delete Performance Downpipe.

The Power.
The AWE Tuning Mk7 Exhaust Suite unlocks potent max gains of 21hp and 24ft-lbs of torque at the crank without software.

APR 2.0 TSI Generation 3 ECU Upgrade for the MQB Platform

Posted on July 16, 2014 – 2:30 pm

Achtuning is excited to announce APR’s release of 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 Continental SIMOS 12 & 18 engine management system is responsible for proper operation of the engine during constantly changing environmental and load conditions. With built in compensational data for environmental variables and varying load conditions, the factory ECU is far more complex and intelligent than units found in other vehicle makes and marques.

APR’s Calibration Engineers spent months calibrating the engine management system, including many hours of in-house chassis dyno development. With a thorough understanding of the ECU’s torque structure, APR’s Calibration Engineers properly increased engine load to produce more power and torque from idle to redline. APR’s ECU Upgrade increases turbocharger boost pressure and optimizes cam timing, valve lift, ignition timing, lambda and more to produce higher output. Using APR’s proprietary high-speed data logging suite, the calibration team closely monitored the effects of these changes to ensure a powerful ECU upgrade without derogating the engine’s drive-ability or reliability.

APR’s ECU Upgrade will provide an excellent leap in power and torque while retaining OEM knock control sensitivity and other built in safety features. The result is safely achieved power, optimized for various fuel grades found around the world. We call it Performance Without Compromise!

APR Stage I ECU Upgrade

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 381 ft-lbs of torque and 316 horsepower with 93 AKI octane fuel. Large gains were seen throughout the power band, including an additional 114 ft-lbs of torque and 87 horsepower. Even higher figures were acheived using 100 AKI 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 13.3 MPH faster!

APR’s ECU upgrade is the best power per dollar modification for the new 2.0 TSI engine and takes the vehicle’s performance to similar levels typically reserved for higher output, sporty models, without pushing the limits. With factory-like smoothness and drive-ability, APR’s ECU upgrade will fill the void in an otherwise excellent vehicle.

Acceleration Enhancements:


Beyond power and torque enhancements, APR’s Calibration Engineers were able to increase the acceleration rate of the vehicle through other calibrations changes. Ignition delay is reduced resulting in a more responsive pedal without altering overall throttle sensitivity. Furthermore, drive-ability was greatly improved by reducing the throttle lag commonly noticed at slow speeds and while reapplying throttle after decelerating.

Increased Fuel Economy:


APR’s Calibration Engineers paid close attention to several parameters directly related to fuel economy, especially while cruising at highway speeds. Depending on driving style and fuel quality, better miles per gallon may be achieved!

Speed Limiter:


APR’s ECU upgrade increases the vehicle’s top speed limiter for blistering sprints around the track or across the Autobahn without the speed limiter shutting down the fun!

Left Foot Braking / Brake Boosting:


APR’s Left Foot Braking feature allows more control over the vehicle’s throttle. The factory equipped vehicle’s throttle input is disabled while pressing the accelerator and brake at the same time. Left Foot Braking, a common motorsport driving technique, allows the driver complete control over the vehicle’s throttle and braking system, which may give the vehicle the edge it needs at the track. As is with all features APR adds to the ECU, this feature may be removed upon request.

Clutch Protection:


APR’s standard Stage I ECU Upgrade offers a large increase in low-end torque, which may overpower the factory clutch. While APR did not experience clutch slip at the advertised torque levels and even higher, others may due to clutch health and driving style. APR recommends upgrading slipping clutches, but has also created special software designed to deliver the same peak horsepower with a cap on low end torque to reduce or eliminate slipping. These specific files are available with various torque caps set lower than the standard Stage I ECU Upgrade.

The APR Development Difference


APR DirectPort Programming:
APR’s patented DirectPort Programming is now available for the Simos 12.x & 18.x ECU! Any APR Dealer in the world, connected to the Internet, has direct access to APR’s latest ECU upgrades for loading directly over the vehicle’s OBD-II port. This completely eliminates the need to remove and open the ECU for currently available files and can be uninstalled at any time!


APR ECU Explorer:
APR’s proprietary ECU Explorer gives APR’s Calibration Engineers unparalleled access to the vehicle’s entire engine management system. Typical commercially available data logging tools, used by most tuners, only allow logging up to 12 engine-operating variables at extremely low data rates. These tools are also limited to a small, specific list of variables. APR’s ECU Explorer is capable of logging every variable found within the ECU. It’s capable of logging well over 100 variables at once with data rates as high as 100 samples per second. Synchronous data logging is available for fine-tuning.


APR ECU Composer:
APR’s proprietary ECU Composer is used for altering the engine management system. With full access to every table, map and variable within the ECU, APR’s Calibration Engineers are not limited to a handful of maps as is common for most tuning companies. ECU Composer takes calibration to a new level with APR’s Quick Flashing. APR’s Calibration Engineers can reflash the ECU in seconds rather than waiting lengthy periods of time between each flash.


APR ECU Assembly:
APR’s Electrical Engineers have the ability to alter the code structure of the ECU. Through code levels changes, APR’s Engineers are able to add features to the ECU. Other changes allow higher torque limits than those achievable through only modifying calibration data or using piggyback devices as is the case for many tuners. This allows APR’s engineers to often not require transmission software to meet or exceed advertised gains. On the highly modified end, this allows APR to make turbo upgrades operate as if intended by the OEM.
