    • APR offering Stage 3 tuning software for popular 2.5 TFSI EA855 TTE700 and SRM GTX3582 hybrid turbo upgrades

      It is great to see APR offering their software expertise for popular turbo upgrades on the Audi 2.5 TFSI EA855 platform (8V RS3, 8S TT-RS). The two premier hybrid upgrades are from TTE (The Turbo Engineers) and SRM (Silly Rabbit Motorsport).


      Details below and APR is open to offering tuning software for the new TTE777 2.5 TFSI hybrid as well.

      APR Stage 3 ECU Upgrades are now available for the 2017-2018 2.5 TFSI EVO as found in the RS3 and TTRS. MY2019 ECUs to follow.

      This stage is available for multiple setups, and are all designed around using a drop-in turbocharger upgrade. Stage 3 has specific software for the TTE700 and GTX3582 drop-in turbo upgrades. Both require a APR TCU Upgrade, race DP exhaust system, midpipes, 980cc port injectors, turbocharger inlet system, intercooler, and NGK heat range 9 (NGK-R7437-9) spark plugs gapped to 0.024" 0.002" or 0.6mm 0.05mm with a change interval of 10-15,000 mi or 16-24,000 km. The TTE700 requires the included wastegate actuator. The GTX3582 requires the included turbosmart wastegate actuator and MAC 3-port solenoid. A proper 500 LPH+ @ 6 bar LPPF is required to run E85, but the stock LPFP is ok for all other fuels.

      The TTE700 produces 576-713 HP with 523-536 FT-LBS of torque. the GTX3582 produces 581-740 HP with 511-555 FT-LBS of torque. RHD vehicles without the turbo inlet will experience reduced output. In all cases, torque is kept flat to aid in component longevity.

      This stage has a optional high and low grip modes designed to reduce wheel spin and aid in 60 FT and 0-60 times depending on surface prep. Additionally this stage is available with optional exhaust crackle modes. The more aggressive modes increase the length, duration, intensity, and operating modes of the exhaust crackle. Aggressive modes are only recommended with testpipes.

      APR Stage 3 is available for 91 AKI, 93 AKI, 100 AKI, 104 AKI and E60-E85 Ethanol in North America, and 95 RON, 98 RON, 102 AKI, 104 AKI, 108 AKI and E60-E85 Ethanol in the Rest of the World.

        Looks like you get really impressive spool out of the TTE700 as compared the the GTX3582R (well ~500 RPM maybe isn't that great) but you don't lose anything on the top end really unless you're on E85 or race gas. It's great to see that you're offering tuning for their hybrids! For TTE hybrids that you don't support off the shelf, would you need the car to be at APR HQ for custom tuning or could one of your dealers do it?

        The TTE625 was scrapped I think. That's where we started. The 700 was the main thing, and then they made the 777. I don't have a problem tuning it. Would need a car here and an opening (We're plowing through a ton of stuff right now). Probably light tweaks needed at this point for the different characteristics.

        can we run tte700 tune on tte777, also the gtx35 is a 800whp+ capable, why numbers so close to the tte700? also about the same on pump93?!

        They're capping it at 500tq to keep the rods alive. Hence, a perfectly flat torque curve.

        The tune is specific to the 700. We have not tried it on the 777. Adjustments could be necessary for optimization and proper control.

        We limite torque in the midrange to keep various components happier than they would be if we just let it eat. Furthermore, pump gas is knock limited. We don't like to push it to the moon just because we can. That could be a costly mistake.
