Power starts at 288 HP, but with APR’s Stage 1 ECU Upgrade and no other modifications, expect up to 357-381 HP with 349-392 FTLBS of Torque. For those interested in a limited powertrain warranty, check out APR Plus! Next up is our Stage 2 upgrade, which offers 372-387 HP with 367-409 FTLBS of torque when adding our hardware upgrades. New for 2019, the auto start-stop feature is now disabled by default, and can be enabled by clicking the button!

    Product Page APR is pleased to present the ultimate Transmission Control Unit (TCU) Upgrade for the DQ381 7-Speed DSG / S-Tronic Transmission! APR’s TCU Upgrade dramatically improves upon the DQ381 transmission’s function, drivability, and performance through a myriad of enhancement and custom features. Normal daily driving is smoother as we’ve improved upon the normal quirks and complaints associated with the driving experience. Sporty driving is far more capable with increased torque capacity, clamping pressure, faster shifting times, more capable launch control, and more, handily shaving .2 seconds off our Stage 2 S3's quarter mile time! Both are optimized to deliver faster acceleration by matching the power output delivered by our ECU Upgrade. This all comes with customizable features you can choose while flashing the TCU to personalize the transmission to your desire! Lastly the software loads to the factory TCU through the OBD-II port, resulting in a clean and headache-free install. Features Optimized part throttle drive and sport maps At lower throttle input, the system doesn’t race towards the highest gear. In doing so, we keep the turbo spooled between shifts for a more enjoyable driving experience. Optimized wide open throttle drive and sport maps Shift strategy matches the output of our tuned ECU upgrades. In doing so, each gear will shift at the ideal point for the fastest acceleration. Increased clutch pressure Maximum targeted clutch pressure is raised to 17.5 bar / 255 PSI giving the transmission the ability to continue raising clutch pressure, as needed, to help prevent slip in higher torque situations. Increased clutch torque limits Clutch limits raised, allowing the transmission to function properly at higher torque levels. In doing so, the TCU does not artificially reduce torque. Manual downshift lockout limit increased In manual mode, the transmission will allow you to downshift so long as the next is below redline. This includes removal of the first gear lockout. Lightning fast paddle response Pulling the manual paddles results in a quicker shift with artificial delays and lag times removed and reduced. Lightning fast shift times Shift times are reduced to be as fast as physically and mechanically possible by the transmission. During cruise and light throttle, shift times are transitioned to a slower comfort mode. Reduced pull-away delay We’ve reduced the delay experienced when pulling away from a stop for a more natural driving experience. Customizable auto up-shift behavior When flashing the transmission, you can choose to have manual mode auto up-shift at redline or stay in gear and bounce off the limiter until you manually shift. Customizable 3-step launch control When flashing the transmission, you can choose your maximum launch RPM, which includes 3 launch RPMs that are selectable depending on throttle position. Lightning fast launch control We’ve greatly reduced the delay experienced after you release the brake pedal for a quicker reaction time when using launch control. Launch control enabled with ESP on Launch control can be used with ESP on. In some situation with the right setup this may improve your launch, although ESP will get in the way with too much tire slip. Launch counter There’s no software limit to the number of launches possible on the transmission. Gear display active in drive and sport Drive, sport and manual mode all display the current gear in the MFD, digital dash or virtual cockpit. Application Guide Fits all 2.0T IS38 Based AWD vehicles. FWD and 2.0T IS20 based vehicles to follow. Price $699.99 USD USA Where to Buy

    If I was going for forged wheels at this price point I'd probably go Forgeline anyways, seems like they're really tested/proven on the track, I don't exactly see HREs on GT2/3 cars.

    Finally! This is what the automotive world waited for this month and really what every car enthusiast on the internet was waiting to see today. Chevrolet is finally lifting the veil on the mid-engine 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette Stingray although these photos leaked early. So, what do you think? Do you like the styling? It borrows quite a bit from Ferrari but meshes it with Chevrolet's own modern styling language. In some areas it looks stunning. In some it looks somewhat plasticky and cheap. Really one will need to see it in person and we need higher resolution photos as well. Those will come shortly so come back and check the page for more photos. The 6.2 liter LT2 V8 output is 495 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. There is no manual option and an 8-speed dual clutch handles gear changes. There is an optional Z51 package said to offer a sport exhaust, upgraded brakes, and some cooling upgrades as well. The official press release from GM should have all the details once it is posted. Let the debate over the new mid-engine Corvette begin.

    One wonders if you have ever had forged wheels from BBS, OZ Racing, Rays Engineering or Forgeline? I have seen HRE come apart on the track. I would never own a set nor would I run them even on the street if they were given to me. From what I have seen, the title should read: HRE is one of the most overhyped names in the aftermarket wheel game. No one I have spoken with the last 15 years has said they would buy them again.

    TTE (The Turbo Engineers Germany) posted some results with their TTE550 N55 turbo upgrade. As you can see not only do they go to a larger wheel but the blade design of their wheels is completely different from OEM. Out of the modern BMW turbo I6's the N55 is the one that probably needs the most help regarding upgrading the OEM turbocharger. TTE550 specs: Genuine Housings & Components Highly Efficient Next Gen Billet Compressor Geometry Optimised Compressor Cover Machining Clearances Latest Last Gen Larger 9 blade Turbine Genuine diverter valve Fitment As Original. Plug & Play TTE Billet Larger Compressor Wheel TTE High-Flow Bigger Turbine (Unlike others that retains stock turbine) Motorsport Bearing Pack 550 PS Proven Single parts finely balanced then components assembled and core high-speed VSR balanced Supplied with a balance test result document Proven TheTurboEngineers quality Made in Germany TTE included a dynograph to prove the output which is something they should do more often. 489 PS at the wheels and 558 PS as the crank: They make what they are rated at and 550+ horsepower capable. They hit these numbers without water-meth or E85. The fuel used works out to roughly 96 octane. Certainly a turbo for N55 owners to consider but mostly for local European guys considering how many N55 hybrid upgrade options there are in the USA.
