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.

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 to produce more power and torque across the entire power band. APR’s ECU Upgrade increases turbocharger boost pressure and optimizes cam timing, ignition timing, lambda and more to produce higher output. Using APR’s proprietary high-speed data logging suite, the calibration team closely monitored the effects of these changes to help ensure an enjoyable driving experience.

APR’s ECU Upgrades provides an excellent leap in horsepower and torque while retaining OEM knock control sensitivity and other built in safety features. This results in an exciting and powerful upgrade, optimized for various fuel grades found around the world!

APR’s ECU upgrades are one of the best horsepower-per-dollar modifications for the new 1.8T engine. The APR Stage I ECU Upgrade is designed to work without requiring other changes to the vehicle’s hardware. With the ECU Upgrade alone, APR’s Calibration Experts measured higher peak figures of 298 ft-lbs of torque and 251 horsepower with 93 AKI octane fuel. Large gains were seen throughout the power band, including an additional 97 ft-lbs of torque and 81 horsepower.

APR Stage II ECU Upgrade is designed to work with APR’s upcoming Exhaust Downpipe and is a free upgrade for APR Stage I customers. When combined with APR’s Intake System, peak power and torque figures grew further to 256 horsepower and 304 ft-lbs of torque. While peak power did not increase by much, the additional hardware allowed the turbo to spool faster and power carried better towards redline, resulting in up to 16 horsepower more.

The increase in power directly translates to an exceptionally quicker vehicle. Using advanced GPS measuring devices, APR’s engineers conducted several acceleration tests. During the 0-125 mph sprint, the APR Stage I equipped vehicle finished 22.048 seconds sooner that stock and the APR Stage II equipped vehicle was an addiitonal 3.112 seconds earlier!

The results were astounding. By simply adding the APR Stage I ECU upgrade, the 2015 Golf Tiptronic test vehicle completed every test quicker than the stock vehicle by a large margin and even bested our own stock MK7 GTI DSG results with ease. 0-60 MPH times were reduced by 1.101 seconds while the 62-124 MPH occurred in less than half the stock vehicle’s time at 16.758 seconds or 19.9 seconds sooner! Acceleration tests were conducted all the way to 125 MPH, which was completed in 23.637 seconds with APR stage 1 software and 45.685 seconds with the stock software.

Utilizing APR’s Stage II software with the APR Intake System and APR Downpipe, the gap between stock and modified grew even further. Once again, the APR Stage II equipped Golf was faster in every test, and showed excellent improvements over the APR Stage I equipped vehicle. Most noteworthy was the 0-125 MPH sprint, which was completed 25.161 seconds faster than stock. At the standard US bus length of 45 feet, the APR Stage II equipped vehicle finished the 0-125 MPH test with the stock vehicle an astonishing 8.55 bus lengths behind! Even more impressive was the fact this test was completed in under a half mile (.464 miles), while the stock vehicle needed 1.2 miles of runway to complete the test!

No appointment is necessary for you to receive this upgrade in your Gen 3 MQB 1.8T – just roll through between the hours of 9am and 4pm, Monday through Friday and we’ll have you in and out of here in less than an hour!

APR Turbo Muffler Delete

Posted on October 7, 2014 – 9:00 am

APR has just released a high flow, Turbo Muffler Delete for various 1.8T and 2.0T engines featuring an IHI turbo.

All too often OEM components must sacrifice various performance minded characteristics in an effort to appeal to a wide variety of customers. While an enthusiast typically wants better boost response and more power, all while hearing the turbocharger breath, a non-enthusiast may give up these characteristics for a quieter ride. In the case of the factory IHI turbocharger, a turbo muffler, or Pulsations-schalldämpfer, is positioned at the compressor outlet and is designed to reduce engine bay acoustics.

The APR Turbo Muffler Delete replaces the factory muffler with a straight, uninterrupted piece, CNC-machined from billet aluminum and anodized black. To ensure proper sealing, APR’s engineers took a two-part approach. A Viton seal is included and forms a seal between the base of the muffler housing and the new piece. With the seal in place and the outer flange installed, the muffler delete tube screws into place, forming a full, uninterrupted path for airflow.
