APR is pleased to present the ultimate engine control unit (ECU) upgrade for the 2.0T EA888 Gen-1 engine!

APR’s ECU Upgrades are the best dollar-per-horsepower modification one can make to the 2.0T engine. The upgrades dramatically increase horsepower and torque, making for an exceptionally quicker and more exciting vehicle. This is made possible through APR’s optimization of the factory engine management system to take full advantage of the engine’s capabilities, without needing any end user adjustment. The software loads to the factory ECU through the OBD-II port, resulting in a clean and headache-free install.

The Stage-1 ECU Upgrade.

The APR Stage I ECU Upgrade requires no hardware modifications and is available with 253-261 HP and 309-317 FT-LBS of torque, depending on octane. Gains as high at 67-71 HP and 93-101 FT-LBS of torque are available throughout the power band! Lower torque files are available, limiting torque to 292-299 FT-LBS. This software must be used with the factory intake and factory exhaust DP.
