    Audi RS7 tunes for use with 91 octane discussion- APR, GAIC, Revo, VR

    hi all,

    I've seen much more info on the apr tune and they are in the news quite a bit more. I've been surfing the forum on and off for a few months trying to pickup info on each one. I love in South OC and GAIC is about 3 miles from my house. Revo is pushed by the local install shop. I don't know much about VR. Glancing at the internet, it seems like the VR and Revo are significantly less expensive than the other ones.

    Anyone have thoughts or experience on any of these lesser known products? I mean, some of these there's over 66% in cost.

    Car is a 2014 RS7 that is bone stock and will be used on 91 except for at the track or 1/2 mile events (which are rare).

    Revo is cheaper than everyone else because they donít make nearly as much power as the others do. The real issue is that so many fewer people buy and tune these cars compared to say the S4 or even the RS3 platform. There you get a lot more competition from the experience of tuners working a platform with a lot of vehicles. Canít speak to GIAC but I have seen good things about APR and Unitronic, and bad things about EPL. I personally have gone APR, and aside from the cold weather issues (which exist even in the stock cars, and wonít be an issue in OC), Iíve loved them.

    Yes, misfires mostly on Cylinder 5. Havenít gotten gapped spark plugs like APR suggests just yet. Ordered new ones.

    For those with the APR tune, I'll be picking up a RS7 which already has a Stage 1 APR tune loaded. I'm accustom to having a device that allows me to switch tunes. Does APR have something similar to this? Does the Stage 1 tune come with multiple tunes (e.g. 100 oct tune) and if so, how do you change between them?

    Yeah, if you have the mobile dongle from APR you download the APR mobile app on your phone. Once you connect the dongle via Bluetooth to your phone you can shift between programs. I have 91, 93, 100, and 104 octane files loaded.

    You're dealer is going to push whoever they sell. I've had Revo its total shit in comparison. APR tune made more at the wheels that Revo made at the crank. It was definitely an improvement over stock but the support from Revo was utter crap. Avoid it's shit
