" Good news for owners of the new Volkswagen and Audi EA888 2.0 turbo motor. APR has released their tuning software for the engine which covers the 2014 up Audi A3 2.0 and the 2014 on MKVII Volkswagen Golf GTI. The software is flashed through the OBD-II port and has programs for 91 octane, 93 octane, and 100+ octane race gas. APR also bumps the redline up to 7100 rpm from the stock 6800 rpm.
So what are the gains? The baseline on a MKVII GTI is 210 horsepower at the wheels. On 91 octane with the APR tune this rises to 281 horsepower on the wheels. 93 octane boosts power further with the APR tune taking the car to 291 wheel horsepower. The race gas figure is 303 wheel horsepower.
APR did not take the tuned car to the drag strip but did some VBOX performance meter testing. Their 93 octane VBOX trap speed is 97.19 miles per hour. The trap rises to 110 miles per hour with the Stage I tune on 93 octane. This figure will be lower on an actual drag strip as the VBOX tends to read higher.
