      APR is pleased to present the ultimate ECU upgrade for the 2.0 TDI Common Rail 140 HP Diesel Engine. After a year of research and development on a multitude of vehicles in the VAG lineup, we are pleased to offer you an ECU recalibration that is second to none. APR’s extensive research and development provides you with a powerful ECU Upgrade with no loss of drivability or reliability. Expect large increases in power and torque across the powerband, improved response and a smoother, more powerful top end.

      The 2.0 TDI ECU Upgrade is an expertly recalibrated engine management control strategy that increases horsepower and torque to provide smooth and reliable operation as if intended by the OEM. APR's ECU Upgrade is developed to work within the OEM and Tier 1 Supplier specifications for engine component stress tolerances and performance specifications. APR's patented EMCS functionality puts the control of the engine's operation at your finger tips and allows for additional features and options to be installed to your OEM ECU.

      DSG Software Not Required
      Unlike many other TDI offerings on the market, APR’s ECU Upgrade DOES NOT REQUIRE DSG Software to take advantage of large increases in torque.

      Included Features
      The APR ECU Upgrade comes Fully Loaded with the following APR EMCS Program Switching Programs and Features:
      • Stock Mode
      • APR Performance Mode
      • Cruise Control Operated Program Switching & Features
      • APR Fault Code Erase
      • APR Security Lockout
      • APR Anti-Theft


      APR Stage I ECU Upgrade
      The APR Stage I ECU Upgrade is recommended for a stock engine configuration and gives you higher peak numbers of 170 HP and 297 FT-LB of torque. The Stage I ECU Upgrade offers peak gains of up to 27 horsepower by 2,950 RPM and 50 FT-LB of torque by 2,700 RPM! APR’s ECU Upgrade is the best power per dollar modification for the 2.0 TDI and give it just the extra edge these cars lack from the factory without pushing the limits on an otherwise stock engine. With factory like smoothness and drivability, APR’s ECU Upgrade will fill the void in an otherwise excellent car.

      APR Stage I Calibration Report:

      Stock as reported by VW/Audi USA
      Power - 140 HP
      Torque - 236 FT-LBS

      Considering I called you guys when I bought my TDI in July of 2010. I was informed that it would be out in 6 months. Sure took you guys a long time. Now I have had the car for 2 years and broke down last year and got Unitronic. I personally not to happy with it and there customer service sucks which does not help. My question to you guys is. Will there be a stage 2 for guys willing to go out and get down pipe back? I have heard and seen that, good gains are to be had if you go that route in both power and MPG.

      Yes, we sure did! In the beginning the program was started but did get pushed to the side as we had a few other major projects getting in the way.

      For the better part of the past year we've worked on the software pretty solidly which included testing on our vehicles, our family members vehicles and beta customers.

      Now I have had the car for 2 years and broke down last year and got Unitronic. I personally not to happy with it and there customer service sucks which does not help.

      It's something we are looking into. I'm not sure what will come of it yet, but considering we have employees driving TDI's that are always looking to push the envelope, I'm sure you'll see more from us!

      since such a large amount of TDI owners have already purchased other Stage 1 tunes... a lot of them will be looking for a Stage 2 for DPF deletes soon. That's certainly the only way you'll be getting any new money from me.. otherwise I may as well stick with the Revo software, or go to Malone for Stage 2.

      I'm glad you guys finally go this out though..

      Just got a call from the shop doing my flash. APR does NOT support 2012 cars yet .

      they said they may have something next week but cannot guarantee it. kinda sucks I wasted my time today dropping off the car and going the day with out a car to drive.

      if I do wait I bet I get a call after the 3rd once the sale is up.

      APR care to shed any light on the subject?

      There are two different types of ECU. 1797 and 1796. We can currently flash the 1796 but not the other. We are working on tools now to make this possible. Typically ECU part numbers with the first 9 digits of 03L 906 012 are the new type, however the only way to know for sure is to open the case and look at the number written on the processor.

      Well hope you still have my number because I live by Corsa. If you need a car to map downpipe back exhaust options. Also might know some one that would let me use there dyno for some numbers.

      Maybe send them a PM, see if you can lock in the sale price? I ordered my JSW TDI and it will not get here in time for the sale, so I am going to ask if I can get it locked in. If not, Revo here I come.

      Got the tune done a couple days ago. Car feels much more responsive especially when passing people on the highway. So far I'm pretty happy with the results.

      Looks like a nice improvement - I'd buy it if I were in the market for a tune.

      What sort of mechanical validation do you all do? I'm not questioning it by any means - I'm just interested because I'm a mechanical development engineer at a diesel engine company and I focus on fuel systems, but for much higher volume and lower margin programs. A fuel map change like this would require quite a bit of testing for us, but then again, our volume is much higher.

      Here's an update on TDI software availability:

      When visiting an APR dealer, the dealer will plug into your OBD-II port and load our Direct Port Programming online flashing suite. The computer will scan your car to see if software is available. If it is, you can flash and go on your way. If it isn't, we'll do what's called a "Code Extract" to send your ECU information to APR for software creation.

      Currently we are extracting and flashing ECU's with the 1796 processor. However, vehicles with the 1797 ECU found in select new vehicles are still in development. We can take a good guess a the processor revision based on your ECU Box code, however, the only way to be sure is to open the ECU and check.

      Audi/VW/Seat/Skoda have MANY ECU part numbers and revisions for each vehicle in their fleet, so typically during the launch of a new software code, there's some lag time before all of the codes are available. Codes will not become available unless we actually see them, which means taking a trip to your local APR dealer will speed up the process.

      If you have a VAG-COM cable, you can do some homework to find what you have. Just follow this guide:
      http://www.goapr.com/support/boxcode.php

      At this point, the following ECU box codes & revisions are available to flash right now:
      2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019CL S7966
      2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019CM S7967
      2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019DA S9144
      2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019DA S8217
      2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019DB S9047
      2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019DB S7970
      2.0TDI CJAA 03L906022PB S8216
      2.0TDI CBEA 03L906022SQ S7968

      If you're not on that list, you may need to be code extracted. However, your dealer will not need to extract your ECU if you're on the lists below.

      Here are the other ECU codes we currently have and are waiting for Engineering to release:
      2.0TDI CBEA 03L906022SQ S7276
      2.0TDI CBEA 03L997016N S8680
      2.0TDI CBEA 03L997016P S8681

      Lastly, here are other codes we are waiting for Engineering to test before they can be bumped up to the next level for a release:
      2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019EE S1181
      2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019EE S3521
      2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019EF S1182
      2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019EH S3523
      2.0TDI CBEA 03L906019EJ S1466
      2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019HG S2261
      2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019HH S2260
      2.0TDI CJAA 03L906019HH S3524

      I hope that clears up any questions, but if not, ask and we'll do our best to answer!

      Thank you!

      It depends on your driving style. I have many customers telling me they are getting better MPG with the ECU upgrade.
