    APR Stage 2 v2.6 Now Available for the New Golf R, S3 and TTS

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!


    APR Stage 2 v2.6 is now available for the new Golf R, S3 and TTS! This new update provides better 0-60 mph times through a recalibrated launch control strategy within the ECU. During testing we saw 0-60 times reduce from an average of 3.6s to 3.4s and 3.2s via Dragy! Other improvement include a more linearized throttle map, improved boost control, and more drivability changes.

    Please note: APR suggests servicing and cleaning the factory Haldex filter for best results! No updates to the TCU are required. V2.6 changes and improvements are applicable to 6MT vehicles as well.

    This free update is now available worldwide. #GOAPR

    Is there a TCU tune to go with this yet for the facelift?

    May I ask what the hold up is? There appears to be TCU tunes around but I'm waiting for the APR one.

    is this only for FL models, or pre-FL too?

    I guess you could say ethics. We could just dump something out and say it's better, and you probably wouldn't know, but that's not how we roll. Truth be told, the transmission is good, so we're spending a lot of time on it to see what we can actually improve. There's a lot to learn. Lot to change. A lot to test. And it's an all new transmission with a new flashing routine (we write those ourself - we don't just buy it from someone else.) So, yeah, it takes a while to make something good from the ground up.

    That's the response I was looking for and I'll stay patient. Thanks Arin!
