    Frankenturbo K04-Hybrid So, my turbo went over a year ago and I've been using APR programming with my frankenturbo. I would say that car hasn't really been drivable, overboosting and limp mode has been a lot my driving life. I went out last night, and had my first great driving experience...

    I recently just got a APR tune done to my passat 2003 1.8t. I upgraded the DV to the 225 audi one. Before tune my N75 valve was bad and was surging. I swaped it out with a new N75 oem for stock 1.8t. Tune went well for about week then it seem like I had no boost whats so ever. Again my...

    I am considering getting the APR Stage I upgrade for my 2017 Passat. I've seen on their website that there is an OBD II dongle that will allow bluetooth connectivity so you can use an Android app to change settings instead of using the stalk. The dongle is $199!!!! So, my question is whether...

    I need some real experience with this one... I've searched high and low on model forums and AudiZine. Can't come up with anybody that has the same issue. APR Tune shuts off after about 7 minutes of driving. Normally I drive until the car is warm, reset the program while driving, then next...

    Hey guys, So yesterday I finally went APR stage 1. I currently have the 2.0t coil conversion kit from ECS tuning installed. I'm trying to find what spark plug gap I should run. I'm currently using a gap of .040 as everyone recommends with these coils. But here is the problem. I'm not sure if...

    Thinking about picking up a apr tuned ecu but it's for a manual and I have a tip. Can I use it on my car. I have read you can recode it but how would I do this? Is it worth the hassle?
