• APR ECU tuning software now applies to the 2019 MKVII Golf R, Audi 8V S3, and the MKIII TT-S 2.0 EA888

      Most of you are aware that some changes were made to 2019 model year Volkswagen and Audi models that affected tuning. Well, do not sweat it as APR has you covered. APR's suite of upgrades is now available for the 2019 MKVII Gol R, Audi 8V S3, and Audi MKIII TT-S.

      These models of course all share the same EA888 2.0 turbo motor and ECU:

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! Lastly, a new and more aggressive pops and bangs mode is optionally available for stage 2 customers.
      Power gains obviously depend on what Stage of tuning and what supporting mods but the APR Stage 2 high torque file with intake, downpipe, and intercooler will take you up to 354 awhp for a very nice gain:
