APR Carbon Fiber Intake System

Posted on July 16, 2014 – 2:00 pm

The APR Carbon Fiber Intake System is an attractive high performance upgrade for the latest 1.8T and 2.0T engines as found in various MQB platform vehicles.

The factory intake design has the foundation for excellent performance, but much of this is sacrificed in an effort to meet other design requirements. With requirements set forth for only supporting factory power output levels, low engine sound levels and long service intervals, there is plenty of room for improvement.The APR Carbon Fiber Intake System increases performance primarily by improving mass airflow through the system while still proving adequate filtration. Expect greater horsepower and torque through the power band with a more direct and responsive feel upon pressing the throttle. Sounds from the engine and turbocharger are …



APR Valve Spring System

Posted on July 15, 2014 – 9:00 am

The APR Valve Spring System is a high performance, light-weight upgrade designed to increase valve control and eradicate valve float common on many applications.  APR’s design specifications called for a valve spring, retainer and spring seat combination that doesn’t overpower and snap the OEM valves or erode the aluminum spring seat, while still maintaining exceptional valve control.  The result is an advanced design that’s 28% lighter yet 20% stiffer than the high performance OEM Golf R setup and is proven to eliminate the OEM valve train’s weakest link.  APR calls it Performance Without Compromise!Key Points:

Increase valve train control
71% weight reduction over OEM Golf R retainers
19% weight reduction over OEM Golf R springs
20% stiffness increase over OEM Golf R springs
Eradicates TSI …

Audi SQ5 Owners! It’s your turn!!

Posted on July 10, 2014 – 9:00 am

Achtuning is pleased to present the ultimate engine control unit (ECU) upgrade for the Audi SQ5 3.0 TFSI V6.  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 8.5 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 …

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 …
