is pleased to present the ultimate engine control unit (ECU) upgrade
for the 1.8T. APRís ECU upgrade is available in octane-specific
variations and is conveniently flashed to the vehicleís factory ECU
through the OBD-II port without any physical modification to the factory
ECU on drive by wire models. APRís EMCS functionality puts the control
of the engineís operation at your fingertips and allows for additional
features and options to be installed to the OEM ECU.
The ECUís Bosch ME7 drive by wire (DBW) engine management
system is responsible for proper operation of the engine during
constantly changing environmental and load conditions. With built in
compensational data for environmental variables and varying load
conditions, the factory ECU is far more complex and intelligent than
units found in other vehicle makes and marques.
APR's Calibration Engineers spent months calibrating the engine
management system, including many hours of chassis dyno development.
With a thorough understanding of the ECUís torque structure, APRís
Calibration Engineers properly increased engine load to produce more
power and torque across the entire power band. APRís ECU Upgrade
increases turbocharger boost pressure and optimizes ignition timing,
lambda and more to produce higher output. Using APRís proprietary
high-speed data logging suite, the calibration team closely monitored
the effects of these changes to help ensure an enjoyable driving
APRís ECU Upgrades provides an excellent leap in horsepower and
torque while retaining OEM knock control sensitivity and other built in
safety features. This results in an exciting and powerful upgrade,
optimized for various fuel grades found around the world!
