APR Vent Mounted Boost Gauge System

Posted on December 22, 2014 – 9:00 am

APR releases their VW (Mk7) Vent Mounted Boost Gauge System!

 

With Volkswagen’s all turbocharger driven engine lineup gracing the new MK7 platform, APR was presented with the unique opportunity to bring visual excitement and technical awareness to the driving and tuning experience. After conducting extensive design studies and testing multiple revisions, APR has developed an elegant plug-and-play vent-mounted boost gauge system worthy of gracing the interior of Volkswagen’s latest models.

 

The APR Boost Gauge System features a high quality and accurate electronic 52mm gauge with smooth and precise movement thanks to microprocessor driven stepper motor. The gauge’s anti-fogging polycarbonate lens allows reliable vent-mounted operation without fogging as is common on units without this design specification. Visual design cues were borrowed from the MK7 Golf, GTI and Golf R instrument clusters to deliver a dimmable LED backlit face with multiple needle colors that look right at home within the vehicle’s interior. The gauge seats neatly inside a high-quality injection-molded vent mounted pod, resembling the OEM design, allows airflow to continue past the unit and still allows operation of the vent airflow control.

APR’s plug-and-play wiring harness eliminates the headaches typically associated with integrating gauges into the factory system. The harness simply plugs into the gauge and into the factory wiring harness, eliminating the need to cut, splice and permanently alter the factory wiring with specialty tools. It’s quick, simple, and carries the quality one would expect from APR.

 

A high-resolution 3 Bar MAP sensor mounts conveniently and tidily within the engine bay on a simple and effective firewall mounting bracket and provides the gauge with a means for reading boost and vacuum signals. OEM style wiring harness covers protect the wiring harness and provide a cleaner install and appearance. The MAP sensor needs a physical reference line to the intake manifold, and as such, APR recommends the APR Boost Tap System as the preferred delivery method.

Quick Facts:

  • 52.4mm electronic gauge
  • Microprocessor driven stepper motor design with self calibration
  • Anti-fog polycarbonate gauge face
  • White gauge face with red or blue needles with chrome ring
  • Rubber seal between lens and face to prevent light bleeding
  • 30 PSI to 30 in.Hg. resolution
  • Left hand drive injection molded vent mounted pod
  • 3 Bar MAP sensor with mounting bracket
  • Map sensor mounting bracket
  • Plug-and-play and reversible wiring harness
  • OEM style wiring harness cover
  • Industry standard 12 month warranty

The gauge requires a boost tap to supply a boost pressure and vacuum signal to the included MAP sensor.

  

 

 

PRE-ORDER! Please note, we are accepting complete boost gauge system pre-orders with an anticipated ship date of February 1st, 2015.

AWE Tuning Audi SQ5 Touring Edition Exhaust

Posted on December 18, 2014 – 12:00 pm

This is AWE Tuning’s second “Q” release of the week!  Achtuning is excited to announce the release of their Audi SQ5 Touring Edition Exhaust!!

Highlights of the SQ5 Touring Edition Exhaust

  • Featuring AWE Tuning’s sound cancellation solution: 180 Technology™
  • Engineered around the SQ5’s specific Tiptronic tuning
  • Direct bolt-on
  • X-Pipe for enhanced exhaust scavenging and improved tone
  • Available with Chrome Silver or Diamond Black adjustable quad outlet 102mm tips
  • Crafted from 2.5” T304 Stainless Steel
  • No CEL Guarantee
  • Fitment Guarantee
  • Lifetime Exhaust Warranty

An exhaust for the 8 speed Tiptronic: Solved.

Since there is no independent control of the valves (except “Sport” mode which changes a number of other things), the AWE Tuning 180 Technology™  equipped exhaust responds to driver inputs seamlessly, removing the need for valving.   As you know by now, 180 Technology™ is not the standard, typical approach to performance exhaust design.  Through proprietary mathematical calculations, AWE Tuning engineers were able to create a sound cancellation resonator that definitively “turns off” the frequency where drone occurs. At the same time, while being able to squelch drone 100%, the resonator design is also providing a 100% straight through, full diameter flow for maximum performance. So at part throttle, relaxed driving: zero drone.  At full throttle, attack mode: straight up aggression (all with no power compromises). just like a valved system.

Cancel it out: AWE Tuning Electronic Valve Simulators

Sound perfection comes standard thanks to AWE Tuning 180 Technology™. which means there’s no need for valves. But when these valves are eliminated, the ECU stores what is known as a ‘soft code’ in the system. While this code is not harmful, who wants it? Enter the AWE Tuning Electronic Valve Simulators.

These simple devices plug right into the factory harness in place of the exhaust valves, and prevents any code from ever being stored in the ECU due to the removal of the exhaust valves. Plug them in. Start it up. Drive away. That simple. Comes as a set of two.

Tip options

The tips, which include the AWE Tuning logo, and double walling to ensure a mirror finish even under hard usage. All tips are individually adjustable, so depth into bumper can be set according to personal taste.

Porsche Design
The AWE Tuning Foiler™ Wind Diffuser boasts an unobtrusive yet elegant design. Crafted from 2×2 carbon fiber with a matte finish, the Foiler™ Wind Diffuser complements Porsche styling without calling unneeded attention. And installation is a breeze with AWE Tuning’s user friendly bolt on design.
