    Thread: ACHTUN!NG | VW Mk6 Golf R Thread

    1. 01-23-2012 06:10 PM #71
      APR announces their official release of their 2.0T Tuning Package for the North American Volkswagen Golf R!

      Volkswagen Automotive Group's 2.0T found in the Golf R is the world's premiere 4 cylinder turbocharged engine and APR has developed a line of premiere performance enhancements to compliment VAG's achievement. APR's expertly recalibrated engine management upgrades and professionally engineered OEM replacement performance engine components result in an even more enjoyable, powerful and efficient operation with no loss of life or use. APR's complete line of performance enhancements have been developed for the 2.0T to provide increases of 83 FT-LBS of torque and 79 HP with an APR ECU and Hardware upgrades.

      APR's Software, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering Teams have built upon years of experience and unmatched accomplishments with VAG's standard 200HP 2.0T FSI engine to develop new breakthroughs in drivability and performance enhancement for the Golf R 2.0T. APR has been able to fully realize the upgrades VAG provided in increased engine durability, efficiency and performance to deliver a tuning program that is the culmination of 9 years of research and development and unparalleled in the performance aftermarket.

      APR Golf R ECU Upgrade Stages



      The APR Stage I ECU Upgrade is an ODB-II ECU upgrade that not only gives you higher peak numbers of 306 horsepower and 293 ft-lbs of torque, but also gains of up to 38 horsepower and 34lb-ft throughout the power band!

      APR's ECU Upgrade is the best power per dollar modification for the 2.0T and gives it just the extra edge these cars lack from the factory without pushing the limits. With factory like smoothness and drivability APR's ECU Upgrade will fill the void in an otherwise excellent car.

      All APR Software is available for 91 (R+M)/2, 93 (R+M)/2, 100 (R+M)/2, 95 RON, 98 RON and 104 RON fuel grades.




      With the addition of an APR High Pressure Fuel Pump, APR's Stage I+ ECU upgrade offers large gains in midrange torque and horsepower. An additional 55 ft-lbs of torque and 55 horsepower over stock is on tap.

      At these impressive power levels, the Golf-R demands an intake system that allows the turbocharger to breath more freely. With the addition of an APR Intake System, staggering gains of 83 ft-lbs of torque and 79 horsepower over stock were achieved. An impressive 338 ft-lbs of torque and 335 HP will transform the Golf-R into an AWD super car with only minor updates!

      As always, APR's Stage I+ ECU upgrade is a free upgrade for all existing APR Stage I customers.



      APR Stage II requires an APR RSC Exhaust System and is a free upgrade for all existing APR Stage I or I+ customers. More information and power figures will be available once their new exhaust system is released!



      APR Stage II+ requires an APR RSC Exhaust System and an APR High Pressure Fuel Pump. APR Stage II+ is a free upgrade for all existing APR Stage I, I+ or II customers.



      APR Stage III Software is included with their world renowned APR Stage III Turbocharger Systems. APR is currently verifying their Stage III Turbocharger Systems for the US market and will have more information soon!

      Price:
      $599

      Flashing Method:
      APR Direct Port Programming. Flashed through the OBD-II port. No soldering, No opening or removing the ECU.

      The ACHTUNING VW Golf R is suited up and ready for this weekend's test n' tune session. Equipped with StopTech's "Sport" brake upgrade (slotted rotors/street performance pads/stainless-steel lines) and Hartmann Euromesh 4 wheels that are wrapped in Falken RT615s, we anticipate quite the performance from our all-wheel-driven, K04 equipped Golf, especially now that we've got the ECU tune and high pressure fuel pump from APR to back it up as well!!

      The Hartmann Euromesh 4 wheels are 18x8 with a 45mm offset, and sit perfectly within the arches both front and back, offering plenty of room for the meaty RT615s.

      The latter.

      Though with the current ride height and offset combo, there isn't much room to go wider. At least, not without a fender roll. There's talks of bringing the suspension up just a touch too for better suspension geometry for the track.

      Is your "signature" ride height the max allowed by those coilovers? Just wondering what they'd look like if set to max height

Though I might suggest a 225/35-19 for those who plan to run a bit lower than this.



      Can I use the Audi R8 wheels that you have on http://shop.achtuning.com and 235/35-19 tires without any fender rolling?

      The factory version IMO is too aggressive, especially with a 235 tire. If it's the style you're after the most I'd suggest the Hartmann version that has more of a Golf R friendly offset.

      H&R sent us a second set of coil-overs to test on the Golf R on Friday. After the first test n' tune session we felt we could use something a little stiffer and the H&R RSS Club Sport coil-over kit is designed for the committed motorsport enthusiast who is willing to relinquish some ride comfort in return for ultimate handling performance. After installation we threw the Golf R on our alignment rack for corner-balancing before heading to the Test N' Tune session on Saturday.



      The stiffer suspension helped shave seconds off already good lap times so we are very pleased with the results, though we'd definitely not recommend the set-up for the typical street-driven car. We're communicating our feedback with H&R and there's talks of an Achtuning-exclusive coil-over kit that might offer a good balance for both street and track. Stay tuned...

      i'd have to agree. i just threw the H&R premiums on last saturday morning (thanks, Achtuning!), and really like the ride. not too stiff, not to soft. actually more comfortable than the H&R cup kit i have on my MKV GTI.

      huh? the height of the headlights can be adjusted manually. there is a whitish screw behind the headlights that allow for up and down adjustment.

      Sorry, we don't have anything "published" that we can even share honestly. We're also going to be testing at least two other suspension kits on this car (one already en route) so we'll be doing that all over again.

      have you had any issues with the hpfp? im considering getting one along with an apr intake and exhaust when its available. Just waiting to put a few more miles on her.

      btw, great color choice, we went with a 4 door base CW as well!

      No issues at all! And we've got more track miles than road miles on the R right now so it's definitely getting its use!

Though I might suggest a 225/35-19 for those who plan to run a bit lower than this.



      Those look great.
