It's APR. I wouldn't count on them to add anything to the mk6 tunes. They won't even work with people who are having issues with their v2.4 tune. They'll just tell you to go back to 1.2. As of now the crackles are only for MK7s.

If you have apr already, just get apr crackles. No need to reinvent your boat.

The differences I've seen were the stage 2 unitronic tune the one guy (forgot his sn) and a Cobb protune. Differences in power were pretty substantial though.

So far it's only the MK7. I saw on the MK7 - MQB FB page. I got into it with a certain someone from APR when I mentioned my Stratified tuned car has had the feature for months.

i dont think you will beat a new BMW M4.

twin turbo. 400-ftlbs of torque at 1800rpm... and 425hp or 444hp if performance package.

You aint beating any of that. k04 might keep up in a roll/not get freight trained. Big turbo for us is most likely whats needed to beat that stock.

I hated my apr tune, so it was worth it for me to get rid of it. I don't feel any quicker or slower really, but my car drives so much smoother and my surging is gone.


Being smoother and no surging is what matters the most. You donít want to accelerate turbo failure with a surging tune.

I think itís spinning the tubine faster than the engine can take in the air from the compressor. Which then puts pressure back on the compressor. Itís bad. I know that.

Maybe what I felt wasn't surging by definition, but I don't know what else to call it so I call it surging. It was basically just a loss of power around a certain RPM, like 2500-3000. It happened at various levels of throttle. I could be driving in traffic like a normal person and I could feel the power loss, or I could floor it and it would pull hard for a second, til it hit that rpm range, and then the power would just be almost completely gone, and then once it cleared past those rpms the power would come back and it'd pull strong again. It's like all of a sudden somebody blocked off all the air going into my intake and my car couldn't breath.

That wasn't my only issue though. The throttle pissed me off more than anything, it was so unbearable. It was extremely touchy. Slowly rising the RPMs from idle was an impossible task. The smallest touch of the throttle would make the RPMs jump at least 400 rpms. That meant accelerating from a dead stop was extremely annoying every single time. It was an issue even if I was rolling around a parking lot in 2nd gear at 800 rpms and if I would just barely touch the gas the car would want to take off, it always gave it way too much throttle, and I even felt it do that in third gear once.

I don't know why the tune was so terrible for me, but I just couldn't stand it anymore. I'm glad I didn't hold out for APR and wait for them to fix it, because that'll never happen. They've literally told someone with issues to go back to v1.2, so fuck those guys they don't deserve anyones money, and I'll continue to talk shit against APR forever.
