Achtuning is excited to announce the much anticipated release of APR Mobile! APR Mobile installs on smart phones, tablets, and other devices and provides a wireless connection to the vehicle’s engine control unit or ECU – and WE HAVE THEM IN STOCK!! Once connected, the APR Mobile device can be used to access APR’s EMCS program switching features, read and clear fault codes and data log the ECU at high data rates not found on other commercially available tools. The app can also be used to access APR’s latest news articles, locate dealers in APR’s network and review previously saved data logging sessions. With direct access to the ECU, APR Mobile has the ability to support and interact with any functionality APR codes into the OEM ECU. That which is available today is only the beginning!
Data logging has proven to be an essential tool in vehicle diagnosis and learning the inner workings of the engine, but commercially available tools are slow and painfully limited. APR’s Mobile ECU Explorer has complete access to the inner workings of the ECU, similar to those available to APR’s calibration experts and OEM engineers alike.
APR Mobile Explorer is capable of wirelessly logging enough variables at once to get a complete overview of the engines current operating state and does so at sample rates fast enough for detailed analysis. For each supported ECU and engine type, APR’s engineers hand select operating values, which they feel are beneficial for your diagnosis needs. Should the need arise for access to more variables on new platforms, APR’s engineers can instantly push more variables to the phone without requiring the user to update the application.
APR Mobile Explorer can graph multiple items in real time and allow the end user to stop and recall the logging sessions to precisely read individual values in greater detail. Each log is automatically saved and can be emailed in a convenient .csv format for later analysis on desktop computers.
APR’s fault code erase makes diagnosis quick and simple. Should the vehicle ever throw a check engine light or fault code, the application will alert the end user with information related to the code.
Please call 425-895-0000 to schedule your APR Mobile specific ECU upgrade and pick up your APR Mobile “dongle” NOW from Achtuning!

Achtuning is pleased to present the Racingline range of parts developed by Volkswagen Racing UK and distributed exclusively through APR’s global dealer network! Upgrade your factory front suspension with the VWR Adjustable Drop Links. These were developed for APR’s race cars to allow them to lower the ride height yet keep the pre-load on the anti roll bar even. Additionally, by removing the soft rubber bushing from the factory links, cornering responses are sharpened.
This is an ideal upgrade for all cars running lowered suspension and/or up-rated anti-roll bars. A true race-car part, but with no compromise in daily driving.
Left / Right threaded ends make for easy length adjustment to eliminate pre-load and adjust the link length when changing between adjustment holes on your adjustable anti roll bar. Solid aerospace-quality rose joint ends replace the rubber bushing in the factory joint, so there is no compliance giving a direct connection to the anti roll bar. This can be felt through sharper turn in.
The VWR Adjustable Drop Links are a very universal product as they are fully compatible with any suspension and any anti roll bar products, not just the H&R and VWR upgrades we offer.
LH and RH thread Heat treated steel, Nickel plated high polish finish stainless steel insert with PTFE liner boned to the inner surface roller ball bearing Hardened and hard chrome plated maintenance free.
What is a Drop Link?
A drop link is a long bar that is used to attach the front anti roll bar ends to the brackets on the front shock absorber on most modern cars. On a lowered car, these fixed-length factory links push the anti roll bar ends down, and force the link to sit at a sharper angle.
Performance drop-links such as the VWR links utilize heavy duty steel ball joint ends that adjust & rotate to any angular combination. The light weight aluminium bodies (made from CNC Machined 7075 Aluminum) are finished in a beautiful anodised grey-blue coating.
The links provide 30mm center to center length adjustment. The link lengths are 300mm – 330mm (stock is 330mm).
The ball joint ends are the highest quality motorsport-specification heat treated nickel-plated steel, with high polish finish stainless steel inserts. The joints themselves have a PTFE liner bonded to the inner surface with hardened and hard chrome-plated maintenance free roller ball bearings. The links themselves have LH and RH thread at alternate ends.
For serious track use, the adjustment is used to fine tune the anti roll bar preload once the car is corner-weighted.

APR’s Engineering Teams have finished final testing of a new version (3.31) of Stage I, I+ and Stage II+ 2.0T ECU Calibrations for the Golf R. The new ECU Upgrade improves upon power deliver on top of what was previously a tremendous upgrade over stock! While addressing all previous concerns, additional motorsport features were added to further enhance your driving experience. The software revision is offered as a FREE update for all current APR ECU Upgrade customers! *
APR’s Calibration and Software Experts focused heavily upon increasing the overall drivability and performance of the 2.0T well beyond dyno numbers alone. Through implementation of the new patent pending APR Boost Control Strategy shared with our Stage III Turbocharger System, the ECU is now able to properly control boost pressure levels much higher than possible with the factory code alone. Specific calibration changes were made to enhance turbocharger spool rates, reducing lag to give the drive a more direct and connected linear feel to the accelerator pedal. Overall volumetric efficiency was enhanced through calibration changes resulting in more ignition advance towards redline, cooler exhaust gases, increased power and torque, and improved fuel economy depending on driving habits.
To further enhance your driving experience, APR outfitted the 2.0T with a Quattro GMBH inspired Motorsport Revlimiter as found on all other R and RS models currently being produced. Rather than softly slowing down acceleration several hundred RPM before the rev limiter, the 2.0T will now freely rev up to the new, clearly identifiable redline at 7,100 RPM and may make all the difference in a competitive head to head sprint on the track!
APR’s pleased to announce intake specific calibrations for use with high quality intake systems removing the factory engine cover, such as the Volkswagen Racing (VWR) Intake System. The factory Golf R’s intake is integrated into the engine cover, presenting a restrictive intake setup from the factory. APR’s Calibration Experts were able to extract more power from the engine by running the VWR intake system, which removes the factory cover. By removing the factory intake system, the engine’s operating parameters could be dramatically changed, but in doing so, other parameters were adjusted to ensure smooth operation with strict boost control, no throttle closure and surge avoidance in the low to mid RPM range. Expect more power and a better driving experience. Go APR!

Achtuning is pleased to announce APR’s release of the ultimate ECU Upgrade for the 3.6L FSI VR6 with Bosch MED9 Engine Management. APR’s 3.6L FSI VR6 ECU Upgrade is an expertly recalibrated engine control strategy that primarily remaps the engine’s air fuel ratio and ignition timing, within the factory Bosch MED9 ECU, to provide smooth and reliable power as if intended by the OEM. APR’s ECU Upgrade is developed to work within the OEM and Tier 1 Supplier specifications for engine component stress tolerances and performance specifications. Available in octane-specific variations, APR’s calibrations allow you to take advantage of fuel quality available in our area.
APR Stage I ECU Upgrade
The APR Stage I ECU Upgrade gives you higher peak numbers of 301 HP/283 FT-LBS on 93 (R+M)/2 octane. As much as 12 HP and 23 FT-LBS of torque are available through the power band. APR’s ECU Upgrade is the best power per dollar modification for the new 3.6L FSI VR6 and gives it just the extra edge these cars lack from the factory without pushing the limits. With factory-like smoothness and drivability, APR’s ECU upgrade will fill the void in an otherwise excellent car.
Beyond power and torque enhancements, APR’s Calibration Engineers were able to increase the acceleration rate of the 3.6L FSI VR6 through other calibrations changes. Throttle and ignition delays are removed resulting in a more responsive pedal without altering overall throttle sensitivity.
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 your driving style and fuel quality, you may see better miles per gallon!
Speed Limiter Removed:
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 your fun!
Left Foot Braking:
APR’s Left Foot Braking feature allows more control over the vehicle’s throttle. The factory equipped 3.6L FSI VR6’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 3.6L FSI VR6 the edge it needs at the track. As is with all features APR adds to the ECU, this feature may be removed upon request.

Achtuning is pleased to announce APR’s release of their Oil Protection System (OPS) for the 2.0 TSI EA888 Gen 1 engine. The OPS is designed to protect the engine from oil starvation, which can cause immediate and comprehensive engine failure.
The APR OPS is a racing inspired product backed by years of testing in the Grand-AM Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge. APR Motorsport’s 2.0 TSI racing program quickly exposed issues related to the engine’s design, leading to rapid engine failure during high lateral G loads. These situations are easily producible on the street during spirited runs on a twisty road, or taking highway on-ramps at high speeds. However, they are exacerbated on the track with race compound tires.
The TSI’s oil starvation problems are caused by the engine’s inability to circulate oil back to the oil pan and pickup point quickly enough during the driving situations described above. The oil level in the pan falls below the pickup point and oil pressure drops. With oil no longer providing a protective barrier between critical components, metal on metal contact occurs, wearing parts rapidly. With enough wear, massive engine failure can occur.
APR Motorsport spent a considerable amount of time researching the TSI’s oiling system to investigate traditional methods of addressing the problem. Baffling the oil pan, modifying the PCV system and enlarging the drain back ports from the cylinder head proved ineffective. Once the problem was fully understood the APR Oil Protection System (OPS) was created.
The OPS is a pressurized external oil accumulator designed to instantly add oil into the system the moment oil pressure dips below a predefined level. The OPS slowly presses oil into the system over a period of time until pressure equalizes, and starvation is no longer an issue. The included APR CAN Controller interacts with the ECU on the CAN bus allowing APR’s engineers to calibrate the system to only activate when necessary. At a specific RPM, the system automatically arms. This prevents the OPS from over filling the engine while idling in the pits at the track or while stopped on the street.
To better understand a generic overview of the problems solved by the APR OPS, please take a moment to view this informative video.
Oil Pressure Data:
2.0 TSI (EA888) Gen 1
The APR OPS was designed around the MK6 GTI/GLI platform vehicles and may fit other 2.0 TSI EA888 vehicles. Confirmed fitment is listed below.
* VW MK6 GTI
* VW MK6 GLI
* VW Beetle

Troy brought us his 2001 Audi TT that he and his family have daily driven since the car rolled off the dealer lot 12-years ago. Regular service intervals and all-around proper care kept this 150K mile roadster in great shape and has served the family well. Not yet willing to part with the car after picking up a new Audi TTRS, Troy decided to bring their beloved TT to Achtuning for a new lease on life. It was decided the TT would serve as the family’s weekend fun-mobile and eventually a dedicated track car so engine, suspension, and brakes would need attention. For phase 1 of the project we inspected the car completely and found a few items needed to be addressed before adding more go-fast bits. Once that was all done, we moved on to phase 2 with suspension and brakes. First, H&R’s Street Performance Coil-Overs would replace the TT’s original and now very worn suspension and allow the TT to corner with ease and keep the car stable. StopTech’s ST40 355mm big brake kit would serve to better stop the TT before we add more power while the popular motorsport inspired Hartmann Euromesh 4-GS wheels were mounted to clear the new, much larger brake calipers.
Phase 3 will begin in a week or so with a Techtonics Tuning down-pipe mated to a Hartmann cat-back exhaust which will complement the APR K04 turbo that will make it’s way under the hood.

Achtuning presents the APR 2.0T FSI Stage III GTX Turbocharger System & Upgrade Kit! (EA113-K03 Vehicles)
Building upon over a decade’s worth of experience with turbocharged Audi and VW engines, including over half a decade with direct injected engines, APR’s Engineers have taken the 2.0T FSI to ground breaking levels of performance without compromise.
APR has introduced the 2.0T FSI Stage III GTX Turbocharger System. Producing over 405 horsepower on 93 (R+M)/2 octane and 449 HP in racing configurations, Stage III GTX places the 2.0T FSI’s accelerative performance in the same league as that of large V8 supercharged muscle cars and sub $400,000 exotic sports cars.
The new APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger System represents a large leap in technology over our previously available GT Turbocharger System. The new system’s response is much quicker, spooling hundreds of RPM sooner thanks to the latest in Garrett turbocharger technology and advancements in the ECU Upgrade. Further refinement of the fueling system increases the vehicle’s reliability and drivability to levels only matched by the OEM. A substantial increase in horsepower and torque results in roughly a 30-50 HP gain in the area under the curve over the previous system. As you hear a new exotic growl from your exhaust system, expect exhilarating g-force levels sure to put a huge grin on your face!
To learn about many component included in the APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger System, see below. For previous owners of the older APR Stage III GT Turbocharger System, an upgrade package is available.
APR Stage III GTX Components
At the heart of Stage III GTX is a GTX2867R turbocharger, consisting of the latest technologies from Le Mans’ winning turbo manufacturer, Garrett Honeywell. The internally gated unit features a fully-machined, ten-blade billet compressor wheel and a dual ball bearing oil and water-cooled CHRA. APR’s Engineers spent countless hours testing turbine inlet and A/R sizes in order to decrease turbocharger lag without negatively impacting peak power. The newly developed compressor housing utilizes anti-surge porting, which greatly complements the lightning fast spool characteristics of this unit and grants APR’s Engineers the ability to deliver massive levels of torque inducing boost pressure, even in the lower RPM range.
Each turbocharger unit is assembled and clocked in house at APR with the necessary brackets to ensure proper wastegate fitment and orientation. Each wastegate is then calibrated for precise operation and control to ensure seamless integration with the expertly recalibrated OEM engine management system.
APR Stage III GTX Software
The factory Bosch MED 9 engine management system is responsible for proper operation of the engine in all 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 marks.
With the significant amount of changes included in the APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger System, APR’s Engineers spent months recalibrating the engine management system to operate smoothly as if intended by the OEM. Thanks to APR’s incredible proprietary calibration suite, data logging software and full access to the coding structure of the ECU, appropriate and intelligent changes are made to ensure flawless drivability and excellent performance without compromise.
APR’s EMCS program switching technology puts control of the ECU in your finger tips allowing you to access modes for standard pump fuel, high output race fuel and even reduced output valet modes to protect your vehicle against improper use by other individuals. This technology is patented by APR and is found nowhere else in the world. It’s Performance Without Compromise only APR can deliver!
*Note* Exiting APR Software customers will receive a fully loaded ECU. New Customers will receive 1 program and may purchase additional programs al la cart. Please check for EMCS availability.
Attached to the turbocharger is APR’s investment-cast, super alloy, nickel-chromium-based Inconel 625 Manifold featuring APR’s Sequential Exhaust Pulse runner lengths. Unlike hand welded tubular manifolds, Inconel is a very high temperature resistant material designed to withstand extreme exhaust gas temperature changes without expanding, contracting, melting or cracking under stress. This material is typically found only at the highest levels of professional motorsport racing where reliability is essential to success.
Investment-cast Inconel features heat retention characteristics which aid in turbo response by keeping exhaust velocity high. Ensuring each exhaust pulse arrives at the collection point without collision is critical to producing lightning fast response and immediate torque delivery. Using 3D modeling and computational fluid dynamics software, APR’s Engineers designed varying short runner lengths calibrated to deliver sequential exhaust pulses without collision. A reduction in backpressure from the high flow design directly enhances power delivery.
Each manifold is investment-cast in the United States of America and machined in house on APR’s CNC machines to ensure high casting tolerances, repeatable results and strict quality control. The thick casting material reduces unwanted exhaust noise leaving behind a powerful and exotic growl.
All of these characteristics result in a manifold designed without compromise backed by a confidence inspiring lifetime warranty.
Induction and Charge Piping
Wire reinforced, multi-ply silicone hoses provide an unrestricted path for airflow to enter and exit the turbocharger at over 1,000 kilograms per hour. The ultra rigid design ensures boost and vacuum piping will not swell or collapse causing leaks and restrictions in the induction and charge piping system supporting boost response and turbo recovery. Each hose is engineered to fit properly into the vehicle’s engine bay with all necessary emissions and reference ports securely affixed.
APR’s Easy-Flow Silicone Hose design features stepped mounting surfaces for smooth transitions from one pipe to another. Traditional designs simply sit on top of each other, often resulting in a disruptive airflow path. By using the stepped design, hoses fit properly without airflow restrictions, resulting in the most ideal path for moving air through the turbocharger and into the engine.
Turbo Outlet Pipe
To provide unrestricted and smooth airflow from the turbocharger to the intercooler, the APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger System includes a cast enlarged turbo outlet pipe to properly deliver the additional airflow from the larger turbocharger.
Mass Airflow Housing
The vehicle’s engine management relies on load calculations to accurately control the engine. Calculations are made by measuring airflow across the Mass Airflow Sensor and this is a critical component of the APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger System.
The small and restrictive factory unit is removed and replaced with the much larger housing. To ensure accuracy, APR’s MAF housing is cast in the United States of America and CNC machined in house at APR to ensure repeatable results. The long, precision-machined housing features a honeycomb airflow straightener to further aid in accurately reading airflow levels. Simply enlarging the MAF housing is not permissible without accurate adjustments to the factory engine management system, which is included with APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger System.
Oil and Coolant Lines
APR’s oil and coolant lines are specific to the vehicle’s Stage III GTX System and provide years of leak free operation. The oil lines feature flexible braided stainless steel with CNC mandrel bent hard-lines for specific and clean hose routing as if intended by the OEM.
Low Pressure Fuel Pump System
The APR Low Pressure Fuel Pump System is a complete, OEM style, PWM controlled drop in fuel pump and controller solution designed to fit cleanly in the OEM location. The upgraded pump provides adequate low-pressure fuel to the APR High Pressure Fuel Pump to support the power levels produced by the APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger System.
High Pressure Fuel Rail Valve
The factory vehicle’s gasoline direct injection injectors require higher than factory fuel rail pressure to achieve targeted air fuel ratios under high load, wide open throttle operation. APR’s Low Pressure Fuel Pump delivers the desired volume of fuel to the APR High Pressure Fuel Pump, which provides increased fueling headroom over the factory unit. However, the factory High Pressure Fuel Rail Valve limits maximum rail pressure below the desired level. The included APR High Pressure Fuel Rail Valve is calibrated to increase the maximum rail pressure to levels necessary for proper operation.
In doing so, APR’s able to support far higher horsepower levels than achievable on the existing APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger Systems without the need to alter the factory, correct spray pattern, injectors. This results in smoother part throttle operation, factory-like cold starts and fewer unburnt hydrocarbons emitted from the tailpipe under all conditions compared to other fueling options.
Cast Downturn and Downpipe
The GTX2867R internally gated turbocharger unit features a Garrett five-bolt flange, which differs from the OEM turbocharger flange. To support this design, the APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger System includes cast stainless steel exhaust downturn and downpipe, which mates directly to an APR Midpipe, Downpipe or Turboback Exhaust System.
Nuts, Bolts, Gaskets, Washers, Clamps, Fittings, etc
Every APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger System includes all necessary components for a complete install.
No matter how small the part, each piece of the APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger System oozes with quality evident in pieces like the Stage III GTX’s laser cut ancillary brackets and carriers.
Proper temperature range spark plugs are included with each APR Stage III GTX Turbocharger System.
