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 RSC™ Technology is now available for the MK6 Jetta / GLI in our newest 1.8 TSI / 2.0 TSI Generation 3 RSC™ 3″ Performance Exhaust System. RSC™ or Reflective Sound Cancellation allows for maximum exhaust gas flow while completely eliminating unwanted in cabin sound resonance known as “drone.” RSC™ incorporates innovative technologies developed in conjunction with NASA. With limited use of packing materials and no baffles, RSC™ allows for a completely straight and free flowing exhaust path throughout the RSC™ mufflers. Reflective Cancellation bounces the undesirable sound waves into each other to attenuate the wave and completely eliminate the low frequency tones that create drone. Each RSC™ muffler is tuned to eliminate specific, undesirable sound frequencies allowing only the engine’s true and desirable exhaust note to be heard and improving performance.
APR’s design specifications and manufacturing requirements result in a 3″ mandrel bend stainless steel performance exhaust system with minimal bends unmatched by any other. RSC™ technology ensures the maximum possible performance increases from any performance exhaust system while maintaining refined and unobtrusive sound inside the cabin.

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!

The StopTech ST60 “Trophy” Big Brake Kit has arrived for the ACHTUNING Volkswagen Golf R! (Which means we’re going to have a KILLER deal available for anyone interested in a slightly used ST40 Trophy kit for Golf R!! Email email@example.com for more info.) Upgrading from the current 4-piston to 6-piston caliper gets us more thermal capacity and more pad surface for an over-all improvement in braking performance. The gorgeous StopTech “Trophy” MIL-spec hard-anodized calipers are impervious to color change or fading at extreme race temperatures.
Despite the increase in size, the over-all weight difference is minimal – under 2 lb when including the larger ST60 caliper bracket! We look forward to seeing how much of a difference the kit will make for us on the track.

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.

The APR Development Difference
APR ECU Explorer:
APR’s proprietary ECU Explorer gives APR’s Calibration Engineers unparalleled access to the vehicle’s entire engine management system. Typical commercially available data logging tools, used by most tuners, only allow logging up to 12 engine-operating variables at extremely low data rates. These tools are also limited to a small, specific list of variables. APR’s ECU Explorer is capable of logging every variable found within the ECU. It’s capable of logging many variables at once with data rates as high as 100 samples per second. Synchronous data logging is available for fine-tuning.
APR ECU Composer:
APR’s proprietary ECU Composer is used for altering the engine management system. With full access to every table, map and variable within the ECU, APR’s Calibration Engineers are not limited to a handful of maps as is common for most tuning companies. ECU Composer takes calibration to a new level on the this engine with APR’s Quick Flashing. APR’s Calibration Engineers can reflash the ECU only a minute later rather than waiting 10 to 20 minutes between each flash.
APR ECU Assembly:
APR’s Electrical Engineers have the ability to alter the code structure of the ECU to add features not available from the factory.
