APR MK6 Products and Information

Hey guys, since i am pretty fresh with APR, can someone elaborate more on the octane requirements? My question is is can i run the 91 or 93 octane mode on 89 octane in my gas tank? Is it bad for the engine?
Also, is it true that you get better gas mileage? :iono:

I'd appreciate your help guys

You should only ever run the octane we specify or higher. You should never run a lower octane. It's bad for the engine and will hurt performance significantly.

If you are ever caught in a situation where it's not possible to run 91 or 93 octane, run the car in stock mode till you are able to fill up and clear the tank with better fuel.

Also, is it true that you get better gas mileage?
We have countless reports from customers stating after they calmed back down and started driving normally again, their fuel mileage increased. Since we advance timing for higher octane fuels, we are able to use less fuel and create the same power when cruising around.

Can we use 98RON program with 97RON fuel?
It would probably be better to run the 95 ron file.

Basically, if your pulling timing because the fuel is not up to snuff, the ECU will pull a little more than it needs to pull, just to be safe. It may actually pull enough to make your timing advance less than what you would see on the 95 ron file. You can grab a vag-com, log, and test it our yourself to see. :)

Arin, can you verify if the 2010 ECU was updated? I've been hearing rumors that stage 1 and 2 for the 2010's has been tweaked. Yea or nay?
 

dbest6808

Ready to race!
Yup. All the North American CCTA/CBFA 2.0 TSI's are updated.
So Arin here's my question I already have stage 1. I'm installing the RSC Turboback and will go to stage 2. Will the stage 2 flash be at no cost?
I may do the install myself or go to my local APR here in White Plains NY which also happens to be my VW dealer.

Stage 1 Tweaks?

Arin,

Can you share any details on the differences between the old and new Stage 1 flashes?

Can I get updated, without removing the ECU, since I already have a Stage 1 flash?
 

Stevec717

Ready to race!
Stupid question maybe, but does an APR Program require removal/modification of the ECU, or just a software reflash?

Thx
Steve

Also, do you have any test data or specs on how much torque the stock clutch can handle?

Arin,

Can you share any details on the differences between the old and new Stage 1 flashes?
3 years after the release of our first stage 1 & 2 TSI tunes, APR motorsport and our APR engineering teams have jumped deep into the TSI engine and even slept with pistons, injectors and turbos on their pillows at night. They've learned quite a bit, sweet talked the turbos and massaged the injectors. The result? Better tunes. :)

Can I get updated, without removing the ECU, since I already have a Stage 1 flash?
Every now and then their will be a stubborn ECU that needs to be pulled to reflash but for the most part, it's all through the port.
