APR is excited to announce our Engine Control Unit (ECU) Upgrades are now available for the Volkswagen GTI (MK8) 2.0 TSI EA888 Gen 4 engine with the Continental Simos 19 ECU! Expect massive gains with up to 328-392 HP with 391-428 FT-LBS of torque on tap, depending on octane and mods! This represents up to 57% more horsepower at the wheels, over stock! Additionally APR Plus is available which adds a factory term limit matching limited powertrain warranty and is offered on our 87 AKI or 91 AKI ECU upgrades!
The APR Stage 1 and Stage 2 ECU upgrades are designed for use on the factory turbocharger. The ECU alone with no hardware mods produces 328-375 HP and 391-427 FT-LBS with +63-105 WHP and +96-129 WFT-LBS over stock, depending on fuel grade. By adding hardware such as our intake and intercooler, the tune automatically jump to Stage 2 power levels and produces 345-392 HP and 391-428 FT-LBS with +76-122 WHP and +96-131 WFT-LBS over stock, depending on fuel grade. Adding more mods will increase power further.
