HRS7-163 Hartmann Wheels

Posted on August 12, 2015 – 3:19 pm

Jason’s A4 avant as it sits on H&R “Street Performance” coilovers with our 19″ HRS7-163 Hartmann Wheels. The Achtuning “Signature Ride Height” leaves enough room for you to clear your daily obstacles without issue while allowing a more aggressive wheel offset to give the avant a more European stance.  Looks fantastic, if we are allowed to say so ourselves!

Both suspension kits and wheels are IN STOCK, ready to ship as soon as we receive your order! Call 425-895-0000 or email sales@achtuning.com.

APR DirectPort Programming For ALL!

Posted on September 17, 2014 – 10:00 am

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.

APR will debut the new DirectPort Programming at H2O International on the weekend of September 26th.  Support through Achtuning will follow starting the week after for applicable platforms.  All mentioned previously unsupported ECUs will also be supported at the show*.

Currently released Bosch MED17.x and EDC17.x ECU upgrades applicable to this release:

– 1.4 Turbo (Ex. A1)
– 1.4 Twincharger (Ex. MKV Polo)
– 1.8T EA888 Gen 1 Transverse (Ex. MK2 A3)
– 1.8T EA888 Gen 1 Longitudinal (Ex. B8 A4)
– 2.0T EA888 Gen 1 Transverse (Ex. MK6 GTI)
– 2.0T EA888 Gen 1 Longitudinal (Ex. Amarok)
– 2.0T EA888 Gen 2 Transverse (Ex. MKII TT)
– 2.0T EA888 Gen 2 Longitudinal (Ex B8 A4)
– 2.0 TDI CR Transverse (Ex. MK6 Golf)
– 2.0 TDI CR Longitudinal (Ex. B8 A4)
– 2.0 TDI CR Biturbo (Ex. Amarok)
– 3.0 TDI CR (Ex. C7 A6)
– 3.0 TDI CR Biturbo (Ex. SQ5)
– 3.6L FSI VR6 (Ex. C7 Passat)
– 4.0 TFSI (Ex. RS7)
– 4.2L FSI V8 (Ex. RS5)

Previously unsupported models:

– Late model 2.0 TSI CC and Tiguan
– Late model 2.0 TFSI TT
– Late model 2.0 TFSI B8.5 A4 and A5
– Late model TDI models

*Please note: there are numerous ECU box codes and revisions.  During the H2Oi release, some will not be available.  ECUs not currently available will need to be extracted and then will be made available at Achtuning upon release.

Necessary Carbon Cleaning

Posted on June 23, 2014 – 10:00 am

A long over-due carbon cleaning service was performed on our Volkswagen CC last Friday.

As you may (or may not) know our direct injected engines suffer from carbon build-up on the intake valves. Over time this build-up begins to have an effect on the performance of your engine, resulting in a rough idle, possible engine start issues, and ultimately robbing you of power. We recommend our customers have their intake valves cleaned every 30-35K miles. We (probably shouldn’t have) waited until 70K…


With the service complete the CC purrs now at start-up and power levels are up where they should be with immediate (and smooth) throttle response! If you haven’t yet, give us a call at 425-895-0000 and REVIVE your direct injection engine with a carbon clean service at Achtuning!
