    Thread: Say Hello to the APR TT RS

    1. 10-05-2011 09:51 AM #51
      [QUOTE=bluestang50;73864815]I saw it both Friday and Saturday... Unfortunately they didn't have the key around Friday when I stopped by and Saturday they were swamped. The guy i talked to on Friday said it had an exhaust and the ECU tuned. He told me the power figures, but I am not too sure I believe his quoted awhp and tq numbers. If he wasn't kidding me then the RS owners are in for a serious treat.

      So what were the figures quoted then?

      If anyone wants an idea, check out the Aussie site.
      Goapr.com.au, then look for the ttrs ecu tuning.

      If you spoke to me I probably only gave you peak torque figures, and those figures were at the front wheels, not all 4. The dyno pods are not mechanically linked. Typically we don't run haldex cars in quattro mode because there's a chance you can damage the system since they can turn at different rates.

      I planned to make a nice video but maybe I can grab a 'teaser'. Trust me, I'm swamped. I've been on the road for 3 weeks now, had a billion PM's and emails (even though I tried to answer them all while on the road) and I'm not getting ready for the BBQ this weekend while trying to launch several products.

      The figures are not final yet and we still have more tuning work to complete. But here is a 'tease' of the front wheel torque. (feel free to beat me up for this one, lol).

      So you're basically saying that flywheel torque is around 500ftlbs? Seriously?

      And what about the encryption/security built into this ECU? Cracked?

      Sounds good. Could you talk to the guy who makes the power plots for your website and ask him to plot the power on a graph where the Y axis actually starts at *zero*, and has sensical ticks?

      Check out this as an example:



      The Y axis starts at 160 hp, and the vertical ticks are every 72 hp.

      All graphs are based on a 5x5 grid.

      I was almost ready to throw APR under the bus and get Revo because of the graph layout. I finally just imported the data into Excel so I could have a sensible format and it's so much better. I don't know why they stick with this 5x5 layout.

      If you guys love 5x5 at the expense of clear technical data presentation to your customers, that's up to you obviously: but perhaps consider making the vertical axis 0-500 hp in 100 hp increments, and picking a nice RPM starting and ending point to make it evenly divided by 5.

      Here's a teaser of our upcoming RSC Catback Exhaust system.

      Reflective Sound Cancellation allows for maximum exhaust gas flow while completely eliminating in cabin sound resonance (drone). RSC™ incorporates innovative technologies developed in conjunction with NASA. With limited use of packing materials and no baffles, RSC™ allows for a completely straight and free flowing exhaust path through the RSC™ mufflers. Reflective Sound Cancellation bounces the undesirable sound waves into each other to attenuate the wave and completely eliminate the low frequency tones that create drone. Each RSC™ muffler is tuned to eliminate specific, undesirable sound frequencies allowing only the engine's desirable exhaust notes to be heard and improving performance.

      RSC works so well, we were able to reduce interior drone by as much as 10dB less than stock.

      For our European friends, you'll be pleased to know we've tested sound levels to be in compliance to the latest European standards.

      The TT RS also features very attractive silver and diamond black exhaust tips from the factory. The APR RSC Exhaust system will allow you to keep these in place if you choose.

      We are currently wrapping up development of a full turboback system and the final system with retain use of the factory Sport button, so stay tuned for new updates!

      Enjoy!

      What size piping is used from front to end. ?
      Or is this another 76mm system.

      Not bad. Do you know how much louder it is than stock or stock sport? In measured DB values.

      Once we have the bypass valve installed, I'll be able to get you full on sport mode vs non sport mode sound levels.

      I do know, wide open, interior drone is 10dB less than stock.

      Great technology, but it's not for me. I want 10dB louder. Inside and out.

      Just gimme some straight pipes

      I was under the impression that the RSC tech was intended to reduce drone at cruising throttle openings. Does anyone really care about drone at WOT?

      The exhaust IS louder than stock and IS a straight pipe. The only sound that's quieter than stock are the unwanted frequencies known as drone. RSC technology cancels out those frequencies.

      I'm not aware of anyone who want's drone!

      I totally get what you're trying to do and think it's great. Loud when you mash the loud pedal, quiet when you're cruising along at highway speeds.
      Here in Texas, I'm always baffled when I pass by a pickup truck at 70mph that's WAY loud to me even with the windows up. I can only imagine what it sounds like inside the vehicle.
      I'll be a player if the price is right. Maybe I'm naive but when I saw the almost $2K prices for Milltek's, I said no way. I understand the economy of scale, i.e. more common cars that sell more parts get them cheaper, but I'm still not willing to pay $2k for an exhaust on my $60K car.

      Couldn't agree more.

      I should add though, this decision is harder to make when one can't experience the difference it makes in person before committing.
