APR Stage 1 - 2.0T EA888 Gen 1
The APR Stage 1 ECU Upgrade is the first step towards making more power! This simple upgrade requires no engine hardware modifications and produces 253-261 HP with 309-317 FT-LBS of torque with the factory intake, and 257-271 HP with 312-336 FT-LBS with the APR intake. This software is available in specific versions for use with the stock intake, and an upgraded intake system. Also, this software is available in a flat torque variation to limit strain on the factory manual clutch. To get more power, the vehicle can be outfitted with an upgraded intercooler, catback exhaust, and various other bolt-on modifications all without requiring any new modifications to the ECU.
There is also a dedicated file for running an intake; not required, but helps get more power.
APR Stage 1 is available for 91 AKI, 93 AKI, and 104 AKI in North America.
