APR is pleased to announce a free update to our existing MQB platform TCU Upgrades! Version 2.1.1 is now available for the new GTI, Golf R, A3, S3 and more and offers several enhancements and improvements over our previously released versions. The new versions brings increased clamping pressure to all vehicles at all stages, allowing the transmission to hold more torque without slipping. Launch control was improved with new torque management strategies, resulting in more consistent launches, faster torque onset, and varying torque ramp rates to help minimize wheel spin and short 1 -> 2 shifts. Based on customer feedback, part throttle shift maps were updated to prevent the transmission from racing to 6th gear, or toggling back and forth between 5th and 6th during cruising. Finally, also based on customer feedback, R/S3 platform vehicle’s 1 -> 2 part throttle shift map were adjusted to hold first gear longer.
This update is offered for free to existing APR TCU Upgrade customers at APR dealers across the globe and is currently available for over 70 different TCU box codes and revisions associated with the new GTI, Golf R, A3, S3 and more! Contact …

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 28/3/2016
APR Acquires Carbonio’s VAG Air Intake Product Line
Opelika, Alabama – APR LLC and Carbonio jointly announced today that APR has acquired Carbonio’s line of high performance carbon fiber air intakes for Audi, Volkswagen and other Volkswagen Automotive Group vehicles. APR’s acquisition marks a successful end to a long and productive partnership between APR and Carbonio and an exciting new chapter in APR’s line of high performance air intakes. Since 2004, when APR and Carbonio first teamed up to design, produce and market high performance air intakes for VAG vehicles, APR and Carbonio have built a premiere brand. Going forward, APR will manufacture and sell these same intakes, while continuing to introduce new, highly engineered intakes specially designed to work in tandem with APR ECU upgrades. While Carbonio is exiting the VAG air intake market, it will continue to manufacture and sell its full suite of other exciting products and will be exploring other lines of business.
“We’re excited to bring the design and production of our full line of air intakes in-house, and we look forward to continuing and building upon the tradition of excellence we first started with Carbonio many years ago,” said Mark Lolley, President of …

Version 1.6 is now available for the MK6 DSG / S Tronic transmission used with the 2.0 TSI (Gen 1) engine.

Version 2.0.1 is now available for the DQ250 DSG/S Tronic transmission found on the MK7 Golf R / S3 and similar vehicles. The update is free for existing APR TCU Upgrade customers and offers a substantial update to the existing product.
APR’s calibration experts have recalibrated the transmission to continue increasing clutch clamping pressure when clutch slip is detected. The transmission is now capable of holding higher torque levels, and the changes result in faster acceleration thanks to quicker shifts, faster clutch engagement during take off, and stronger launch control launches. The transmission remains more consistent during back-to-back testing, with healthy, properly-lubricated transmissions no longer suffering from overheat warnings with seemingly little effort to produce them. Finally, following customer feedback, part throttle shift maps have been further optimized to prevent some TCUs from continuing to race to 6th gear, or toggling back and forth between 5th and 6th.
This update is available worldwide, and currently is designed for IS38 equipped vehicles, such as the AWD Golf R and S3. Other platform vehicles, such as the MK7 GTI and A3, will receive a similar update and announcement shortly.
