APR is pleased to present the ultimate Pendulum Mount Upgrade!



The APR Pendulum mount replaces the factory mount with a new, thick, billet-aluminum two-piece design, featuring a PTFE-lined spherical bearing and ARP bolts. The system stiffens the driveline to improve shift quality and power transition, while addressing the common and costly factory failure point at the transmission mounting location. It is easy to install, addresses all concerns with the factory setup and includes all necessary hardware to bolt on and enjoy!



Quick Facts:

Reduces transmission movement
By removing the factory rubber bushing, the APR system reduces slop in the driveline to improve shifts, and transmission of power to the ground. Expect a sportier feel during acceleration, deceleration and gear changes without an excessive increase in NVH when paired with the factory sub-frame mount.

Reduces transmission failure
The factory rear mounting point was upgraded to the new MQB / MK7 platform style mount as the older design was prone to failure under heavy use. Because of the new designís mounting orientation, the system is far less likely to tear out or break the rear bolts, which typically results in costly repairs or full transmission case replacement.

Spherical bearing
Spherical bearings offer far less unwanted movement over rubber and polyurethane inserts. As such, the APR mount uses a spherical bearing, made possible by upgrading the rear mounting hardware. The bearing is fully-serviceable, features a heat-treated race and precision-ground ball, with a self-sealing and self-lubricating PTFE lining.

Billet aluminum construction
The front and rear pieces replace the factory cast aluminum and stamped steel pieces with precisely machined, billet-aluminum pieces that are both lightweight and strong. Each piece is anodized black to provide corrosion resistance and the APR logo is laser etched on each side.

ARP Bolts
The factory bolts are one-time-use, and must be replaced when installing a new mount. The APR system includes non-one-time-use ARP bolts for their strength, quality and longevity over the factory bolts.

Easy to install
The system is easy to install, doesnít require dropping the sub-frame and is compatible with the factory and factory-like modified sub-frame mounts. Full install directions are included with each system.

Application Guide

All MK5/MK6 Golf/GTI/Jetta and similar platform vehicles.

Product Page

APR’s TTE420 Turbocharger ECU Upgrade is designed for use with the The Turbo Engineer's TTE420 turbocharger and produces an asphalt-shredding 400 HP on 93 octane fuel, and up to 442 HP using race fuel! Expect lightning fast response coupled with smooth daily driving and a much broader power band that pulls all the way to redline!

Using multiple vehicles across the world and in house, APR’s team of Calibration and Electrical Engineers mastered the Bosch MED9 engine management system to work seamlessly with the upgraded TTE420 turbocharger unit. All critical aspects of the vehicle’s platform were taken into consideration and monitored through APR’s proprietary engine management logging tools to levels often not seen elsewhere in this industry. Through proper mapping, the ECU fully understands the hardware changes and operates correctly. As such torque delivery is smooth and flat, avoiding compressor surge, limitations in the factory fueling system, and limiting stress on the factory transmission. Cam phasing operations are optimized, aiding in turbocharger spool, while allowing the engine to breathe more efficiently at higher engine speeds. Under various operational modes, lambda, ignition advance, requested torque, boost pressure levels and more were painstakingly optimized to produce maximum power without resorting to risky calibration shortcuts.

APR is pleased to present the ultimate Oil Catch Can System for the MK6 Golf R!

Product Page



The APR Oil Catch Can System replaces the failure prone factory positive crank ventilation (PCV) system and traps excessive crankcase oil vapors and gunk from entering the engine. The system eliminates a common performance robbing boost leak, while reducing carbon buildup on intake valves, octane lowering oil vapors and oil pooling within the intake tract. It’s a simple modification to install, drains in seconds with the flick of a knob, and is recommended at all stages of performance.




Quick Facts
  • Increases performance - Increases performance by eliminating a common boost leak, and reducing octane lowering oil vapors and airflow restricting carbon buildup.
  • Eliminates a boost leak - The PCV block-off plate eliminates the failure prone factory PCV valve.
  • Catches oil and gunk - Oil and gunk pools in the can, not in the intercooler piping.
  • Easy to drain - A simple knob allows the system to drain in seconds without any tools.
  • Easy to install - Installs in minutes. The hoses pop right on without tools thanks to the OEM Norma fittings.
  • Easy to maintain - Yearly maintenance is a snap thanks to the two-piece billet design.
  • High-quality hoses - Resist oil degradation, kinks, abrasion, and blockage from freezing, with an OEM look.
  • High-quality can, plate and bracket - Strong, clean and attractive billet-aluminum and stainless steel parts look right at home in the engine bay.

The Problems

An engine produces extreme pressures within its cylinders during operation and some ultimately slips by the piston rings and pressurizes the engine’s crankcase. This is exacerbated when increasing horsepower and driving harder. To relieve the pressure, the engine uses a failure prone PCV system that dumps the pressure, along with oil vapors, back into the intake tract to be consumed by the engine. Unfortunately, this results in the following performance robbing scenarios:


  • Oil vapors mix with the air/fuel mixture, which reduces octane and hurts performance.
  • Carbon builds up on the back of intake valves, which reduces airflow and hurts performance.
  • Messy oil pools in the intake tract and coats the intercooler, leading to hose degradation, and reduced IC effectiveness.
  • The factory PCV system can fail, creating a massive boost leak that directly pressurizes the crankcase.

The Solution

The APR Oil Catch Can System eliminates the factory PCV valve with a billet-aluminum block-off plate. The plate routes crankcase gasses through the APR catch can, which filters oil vapors through a track-proven four-staged baffling system. The vapors pool in the bottom of the can, while the rest of the pressure is diverted back to the intake tract where it’s burned off by the engine.



The result is simple:
  • A cleaner engine
  • Better performance
  • Elimination of a common failure point

APR is pleased to present the ultimate clutch pack upgrade for the DQ250 transmission!



Product Page

The APR DQ250 Clutch Packs replace the factory transmissionís friction disc and steel plates with an advanced and proprietary design that allows for greater performance. The system goes beyond the norm of simply increasing the disc and plate count, and takes a multi-step approach that not only greatly improves the overall friction engagement area, but does so without sacrificing the total heat-sink material mass of the steel plate. With 40-50% more friction discs, tighter tolerances, carefully specified materials, surface finishes, a proprietary top plate design and more, the clutches hold more torque, prevent premature failure, and provide quick stutter-free high-performance engagement!











Quick facts:

More friction discs
- OEM: 9 discs & 18 surfaces (4 large (K1) / 5 small (K2))
- APR: 13 discs & 26 surfaces (6 large (K1) / 7 small (K2))


Larger friction disc engagement area
- Larger OD / smaller ID for a wider engagement area
- Grove pattern optimized to increase engagement area
- Grove pattern maintains proper cooling channels


Optimized friction material
- Carefully selected material allows for shutter-free high-performance DCT engagement

Improved friction disc tolerances
- Tighter flatness specifications helps prevent premature wear, drag, hot spotting and warping

More steel plates
- OEM: 11 plates (5 large (K1) / 6 small (K2))
- APR: 15 plates (6 large (K1) / 7 small (K2) + 2 integrated top plates)


Proprietary top plate design
- OEM: Unused stamped-steel spacer plates
- APR: Thick steel plates with friction mating surface
- Allows for more friction plates while maintaining critical steel plate thickness


Improved steel plate design
- Thick plates maintain proper heat-sink material mass
- Heat flattened to stringent flatness requirements
- Increased hardness to further assist in rigidity
- Aggressive surface finish matched to friction material
- Design helps prevent premature wear, drag, hot spotting and warping
- Provides smooth shutter-free DTC engagement


Less clutch destroying heat
- Better friction means less required clamping pressure, and that means less clutch destroying heat

Manufactured in the USA by Quartermaster
- Multi-plate clutch experts, founded in 1958





The APR Difference



A balance between increasing friction material surface area and overall steel plate thickness is critical when designing a dual clutch transmission (DCT) clutch pack. To increase torque capacity, transmission manufacturers typically specify larger transmission designs with either more room for more discs, discs with wider surface areas, or a combination of both. However, this is not an option for those simply looking to upgrade their existing transmission.

All too often, steel plate thickness is shrunk in an effort to cram in more frictions discs and plates, but in doing so, the steel plates can become unable to dissipate heat, resulting in premature wear, hot spotting and ultimately failure. However, APRís design increases the friction disc count by 40-50%, but does so while maintaining proper steel plate thickness and total mass. This is thanks to a proprietary top plate design. By replacing the factory stamped-steel top plate spacers with functional top plates, with integrated mounting surface surfaces, the clutch packs are left with substantially more room to increase the number of discs and plates without sacrificing thickness.




Friction Discs



A three-step approach was taken to increase friction material surface, or engagement area:

- The number of discs are increased 40-50%, resulting in 13 discs with 26 friction surfaces.
- The outer diameter of the friction disc is increases and the interior diameter is decreased, leaving a wider engagement swath.
- The friction materialís surface design is optimized, increasing the physical friction material surface area within the engagement area.

The result is obvious: a larger engagement area designed to hold more torque! Furthermore, less clamping pressure is required to hold higher torque levels, reducing the temperature of the clutch fluid. Heat is a major contributor to clutch failure, making this extremely desirable, especially for higher output vehicles, and vehicles under brutal racing conditions.





Keeping it Smooth

To ensure the clutches engage smoothly and quickly, careful attention was paid to the discs and plates to ensure they resist premature wear, warping, dragging and hot spotting. The discs and clutches remain thick, despite adding more, thanks to the proprietary top plate design. The steel plates undergo a heat flattening process with stringent flatness requirements, and the hardness of the steel was increased, over the factory design, to assist in rigidity. The plates are processed with an aggressive finish, but this finish is appropriately matched to the friction disc material to prevent wear. Likewise, the friction discs use a carefully selected material for optimal shutter-free high-performance engagement, and include tighter flatness specifications, further assisting in their smooth operation.






APR Recommendations and Requirements

APR provides a detailed install manual with each set of clutch packs that covers the installation process. New shims are not included with the clutches and can be purchased separately if needed. The factory shim can be reused if not compromised during removal. Also, APR dealers will have shim kits available if they are performing the install. After install, the transmission MUST undergo a factory TCU clutch adaptation before itís driven. Failure to do this properly can cause irreparable damage to both the friction and steel plates. This adaption can be accomplished using VCDS (BETA 16.6.0 or higher), ErWin, or the VW Factory Scan Tool.

The transmission uses a micro-slip routine with hard factory torque limits. APRís standard TCU upgrade is a MUST to ensure proper operation.

The transmission fluid is drained during the installation process so new, factory fluid, is required along with a new filter
