    Say Hello to the APR TT RS

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I still can't get over how beautiful the TT RS is in real life. Everything about it screams amazing. The engine is no slouch either. Stock, it throws you back in your seat. With only our ECU upgrade, it brutally rips you back into your seat. Still, the pursuit for more power never ends and the 2.5 TFSI is the perfect platform for more. This vehicle has quickly moved to the top of my favorites list and when we're finished, everyone will want this engine.

    This car is going to be part of a very special project that we are calling "Project Reunion". I cannot go into much detail yet but it will be a project that ties the 5cyl Turbo cars of yesteryear with todays modern 2.5 T 5 Cyl. We have been working on this project already for 8 months and cannot wait until the unveiling of both cars. I expect this to be sometime first of the year.

    Needless to say it's a fantastic platform mated to a very proper engine. We already have fallen in love with it.

    APR will be developing a full engine packages including our famous Stg 3 system. This includes intake, exhaust, software and Stg 3!

    Stay tuned and as always... Go APR!

    Stay tuned for the exciting updates along the way.

    Any hint on what will be coming? Intake? Exhaust?

    Edit: sorry, I missed the STG 3 part. Anyway, can't wait to see those parts become available.

    Stephen, congrats and it's great choice of color. You already know what I think about the performance. Hope all those electrons I donated were useful. APR is certainly on top of its game.

    So we've given a little preview of our development progress thus far. We have a lot of power left on the table, and as more of our production hardware and software becomes ready, we'll keep bumping up the power and torque.

    On our TTRS beta car, we're running a beta APR stage 3 turbocharger system. Essentially at this stage we have the cast turbo inlet, turbocharger, inconel turbo manifold, turbo hotside down turn, turbo compressor outlet hose, beta coolant and oil lines, a beta downpipe which will be heavily modified for efficiency in the future, and no production heat shields.

    We used the stock intake, stock intercooler, stock internals, stock clutch, stock head, stock cams, stock fuel pump and stock injectors. We were able to crank out 517 whp and 500 wtq (ft-lbs) on this setup, and it's spooling very quickly already. To give an idea of spool, we're past 300 wtq by 3000 rpm's and 400 wtq by 3200 RPM's. Torque just keeps climbing and we've already pushed 550 wtq out of the setup but did not have time to gather all of the data before the conference. Essentially, with all of these stock restrictive and limiting components, the system is spooling quickly and making gobs of power already with more room to go once more parts are installed.

    The great Audi engines are back and we're loving every moment of it!

    Excellent!

    Any news on the status of the tune for production cars?

    Yes, dealers are getting the first part of the tools today, and the connector for the TTRS is being rolled out as soon as we finish production.

    Great!
    I'm on your waiting list and have been awaiting the release of the tuning. Since I'm in SoCal and am limited to 91 Octane fuel, what are you seeing for HP/Tq?

    This is going to be a very awesome project once 100% complete and development is over. Saw everything first hand at the APR dealer conference this weekend and all I can say is we are all in for a treat and there is plenty of power to made! This is just the beginning. That's all for now :)

    Sat in one at Audi USA HQS this afternoon. It has risen rather rapidly to the top of my list of potential replacements for my B8 S4 when it hits 50k. Priced mine out and it's sitting at $63k msrp, which is not bad, all things considered. Agree with the OP - beautiful car in person.

    Here are more development prototype pieces which are being sent out to another one of our development vehicles. We'll have test vehicles on several different continents all at once to ensure this kit and software is ready for left/right hand drive vehicles, high/low altitude, hot/cold weather, humid/dry weather, and the abuse of a few of the more crazy drivers out there. : )

    APR T3 Investment Cast Inconel Exhaust Manifold.

    The runner lengths were adjusted properly so each incoming pulse arrives at the turbocharger collector without colliding into each other. This promotes turbocharger spool just like people see with weaker and louder tubular manifolds.







    APR Cast Turbo Inlet Pipe. This cast piece will bolt up to the OEM intake location allowing any intake on the market to connect at the same location. It also reuses all the OEM connection points for PCV evap and vacuum. The piece bolted to the turbo and uses a gasket for a clean and easy leak free install.







    APR Investment Cast Turbo Downturn with divorced wastegate routing, internal exhaust gas scavenging promoters and v-band downpipe connection flange.







    Garrett GTX Ball Bearing T3 Turbocharger with integrated divorced wastegate housing, billet compressor wheel and anti surge compressor housing. We are in the process of testing small to large GTX T3 frame turbochargers. This particular unit is a GTX3071 and we have GTX3076 and GTX35 turbos as well.









    APR Prototype Turbocharger System. Shown here are ONLY a few of the cast parts. Our turbocharger systems include all software, fueling, gaskets, oil/coolant lines, heat shields, nuts, bolts, oil and coolant you need to install the kit and go.



    We'll give more updates as we have them!

    I don't wanna get rid of my S4 to get a TTRS, I want to have both. Curious to see how the mk3 will look like.

    My 2012 USA-spec TT RS is now running an APR tune

    My ECU was just returned from APR with a Stage 1 91 octane tune.
    It was sweet before the tune, it's crazy awesome post-tune!

    The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    Arin,
