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 …

APR 1.8 TSI Generation 3 ECU Upgrade for the MQB Platform

Posted on December 16, 2014 – 8:00 am

Achtuning is excited to announce the re-release of APR’s ultimate engine control unit (ECU) upgrade for the Generation 3, 1.8 TSI and TFSI 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 ECU’s Continental SIMOS 12.x 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 chassis dyno development. With a thorough understanding of the ECU’s torque structure, APR’s Calibration Engineers properly increased engine load …
