Our drop in intake filters are a direct replacement upgrade for the Porsche 911 (992) 3.0T and 3.7T engines. The proprietary performance intake filters use a high flow cotton gauze filtration material that was flow-bench optimized and is directly compatible with the factory intake system and future APR intake systems. The filters flow up to 9% more than their stock counterparts. The intake system will see reduced pressure drop at the same flow rates. This puts less strain on the turbocharge rand maximizes performance, all while sharpening throttle and turbocharger response. On top of this, the filters are serviceable, meaning they can be washed and cleaned for many years to come!

The 2.5T intake manifold has a couple different versions form the factory including a solid black plastic cover plate and a carbon fiber cover plate, both of which have factory badging. The carbon fiber cover plate is an upgrade and looks great, but it’s only available if you added the expensive carbon fiber package. That’s where we come in with our design. You can ditch your factory plate for our debaded carbon fiber plate without breaking the bank!

APR Ignition Coils are designed to be a direct plug-and-play upgrade to factory coils, and provide greater energy output, ensuring a stronger and more consistent spark. It’s commonplace replacement of factory ignition coils with those taken from the higher output vehicles as they are often believed to provide greater energy output. However, testing often proves that they are no more powerful than the factory coils they are replacing. APR Ignition Coils increase energy output by up to 17% over stock. They are a direct upgrade or replacement, and come with a unique red housing! Read More.

The DSG transmission found in the new 2022+ Volkswagen Golf R, GTI, and Audi S3 is nothing short of amazing. It’s incredibly fast and capable and requires no hardware upgrades to hold dramatically more torque than what’s possible on other transmissions. However, from the factory the transmission tells the engine to limit power and torque. Our engineers fix this by recalibrating the system to maximize torque capacity and clutch pressure to avoided transmission slipping and damage, and in doing so allows the engine to dramatically increase horsepower and torque! On the MK8 GTI we saw +25-32 WHP and +34-44 WFT-LBS of torque simply by adding our TCU upgrade on top of our ECU Upgrade. On the MK8 Golf R we saw +18-55 AWHP and +23-64 AWFT-LBS of torque by doing the same. This and other changes make the TCU upgrade a substantial upgrade on any tuned vehicle!

The 2.0T EA888.4 found in the MQB EVO / MK8 platform has possibly the most underwhelming engine cover to grace the 2.0T since its inception generations back. Some vehicles even came with no cover at all due to the fact the flimsy and floppy factory cover could pop off and catch on fire. We fixed this with a new ridged carbon fiber design that’s drop dead gorgeous. Available in Gloss Carbon Fiber Twill, and Exotic Gloss Forged Carbon Fiber, the new covers are sure to turn heads. They match the overall shape and theme of the factory cover, but ooze aesthetic appeal thanks to the carbon fiber materials, red and black accents, and of course, the world renowned APR logo plate.
The engine cover looks right at home in an otherwise stock engine bay, but shines when paired with an APR intake system and matching intake cover. Simply plug and play, no tools necessary! Of course, it doesn’t affect emissions, and some on the internet have even suggested it may add horsepower, at least more than stickers do, but we have not verified this claim. Get yours today and GOAPR!

This is the ultimate intake upgrade for the Audi A6 Quattro, A6 allroad, and A7 Sportback 3.0T (C8). It flows 45% more than stock, and reduces pressure drop. This directly translates to +19 AWHP and +17 AWFT-LBS of torque making this a simple upgrade for more power you can feel.
Our system is a full upgrade as it replaces all of the intake components from the inlet scoop all the way to the turbo inlets. This is extremely important as focusing on the airbox alone does not address the main restrictions found in the factory intake system. Simply put, our system flows better than stock, makes more power, puts less strain on the turbocharger, looks sexy under the hood with the gorgeous carbon fiber design, and enhances the sound of the engine.

Simply plug it in and either use the wireless controller or smart phone app to set or customize how the pedal feels. Most people don’t like the way their throttle pedal feels, and while tuning can help eliminate lag, everyone has a different opinion about how it should feel. This device lets you set it exactly the way you want and allows you to quickly switch between profiles. Set it to stock, sport modes, extreme modes, and eco modes with ease.

APR Roll-Control Lowering Springs greatly improve the looks and handling of your Volkswagen MK7 / MK7.5 GTI without greatly sacrificing comfort or your wallet! Designed for use with DCC or Non-DCC dampers, our performance lowering springs are a direct plug-and-play upgrade that offer a lower center of gravity and increased spring rates to reduce body roll.
Many lowering springs on the market today simply lower your vehicle and give a false sense of improvement by feeling overly stiff. We took a different approach with our design. We extensively track and street tested several iterations to deliver a system that not only makes your GTI look great, but does so while delivering a comfortable experience that doesn’t constantly compress and ride on the bump stops or crash and bottom out the dampers. Through a proper ride height configuration, we’re able to greatly increase spring rates for improved handling, but do so without leaving the ride harsh, bouncy, and uncomfortable. Your GTI will be planted with a minimal impact on comfort. It’s a system you’ll love the second you’re behind the wheel!
