APR’s ECU Upgrades are the best dollar-per-horsepower modification one can make to the 3.0T engine. The upgrades dramatically increase horsepower and torque, making for an exceptionally quicker and more exciting vehicle. This is made possible through APR’s optimization of the factory engine management system to take full advantage of the engine’s capabilities, without needing any end user adjustment. The software loads to the factory ECU through the OBD-II port, resulting in a clean and headache-free install
The APR Stage I ECU Upgrade is the first step towards making more power! This simple upgrade requires no engine hardware modifications, and produces 427-462 HP with 370-387 FT-LBS of torque. Gains as high as 84-119 HP and 61-87 FT-LBS of torque are available throughout the power band, making the vehicle exceptionally quicker in all scenarios. To get more power, the vehicle can be outfitted with an upgraded APR Intake System, exhaust systems, APR Supercharger Cooling System and other small modifications without requiring any new modification to the ECU.
