• APR releases Stage 1 ECU Tune (with E85 support) for the Lamborghini Huracan and Audi R8 V10 Plus 5.2 liter V10

      Great tuning results here for the 5.2 liter V10 Lamborghini Huracan and Audi R8 platform. APR is taking E85 ethanol into account for some great gains. As you likely know the Huracan and R8 5.2 liter V10 motors feature both dual and port fuel injection.

      This means E85 will not tax the fuel system as quickly and the additional injectors will be able to supply more fuel. A great thing as just look at the E85 results.

      47 horsepower gained at all four wheels:

      This is on APR's Mustang dyno. Now look at how things change with 91 and 93 octane.



      Essentially they are getting it to 650 horsepower with just the tune in naturally aspirated form on the higher octane fuel.

      You will notice the standard R8 is not included and it is actually the model which will benefit the most from the ECU tune as it is artificially detuned through software only by Audi.

      APR simply has not tested the software on the R8 but that is only a matter of time.

      The ECU software is well worth the asking price:

        hopefully this means there will be an E85 tune coming out for RS3 as well since it also has DI+port injection
