      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.

      Nice! Thanks for the update. Can you confirm if there are actually any engine differences in the US-spec CEPB engines that result in more power potential over the original European CEPA models, and what those physical differences are?

      Aside from the encryption, I wonder if the RS ECU has the same memory limitation as the TTS.

      The TTS ECU only has enough memory for one program on it. In other words, you can't switch between stock and other programs.

      Honestly, I would much rather say "Hello!" to the APR TT stage 1 tune for 2011 and newer TT 2.0TFSI's.

      Come on APR. What fraction of TT buyers are TT RS buyers again? I know you're working on it, and I suspect you did the TTRS for the publicity bump, but get the lead out. Bring that stage 1 on the 2.0TFSI already!

      Thank you for the input. Next time I'll ask Audi to not deliver our new vehicle till software is ready for all other vehicles. If that's not possible, I'll make sure not to share any photos, even if the vehicle happens to be older (in the ROW) than the new encrypted ECU's in the US.

      We ran into this issue on the MED17 TSI ECU's as well but we were able to rewrite the compression and programming routines to make it work. We are investigating this same technique on the ME9 ECU's.

      I, too, know that you're working on it.
      Is the issue the new ECU, and the encription that it has to prevent tuning? At least tell us how far along you are, as in "The new ECU encription has been successfully cracked and now we're working on the actual tuning itself". That's what I want to hear, thruth be told. After all, isn't this the same ECU as is used on the 2011 GTI?

      I'm very enthusiastic about what you folks do, but I'm also a very impatient person when it comes to things I'm enthusiastic about. At least you know you have me as a customer when it does become available, right?

      GO APR!

      Evidently, no good deed goes unpunished

      Keep the updates coming

      Stage III 600+ hp with flat torque line would be nice to see.

      * new bigger Manifold turbo housing.
      * bigger K24 instead of K16.
      * 4" downpipe into 2x2.5" follow-up.
      * Dual 100 cell race cat's.

      Good to know Arin, thanks! When can we expect to hear the announcement regarding the North American TT RS programming? Two weeks?
