I am a student at Auburn University in Auburn, AL rgiht now, which is the HQ for APR. I have their software upgrade which gives about 52 more HP and about 100 Ft-Lb more tourqe. THey are also an official dealer for the carbino cold air induction unit which i am about to get. I am also thinking about getting the full exhaust that APR offers. If you get the software, cold air unit, and exhaust from APR, which they call a Stage III package, you can expect close to 300 hp and about 40% to 50% more engine efficiency. I think the carbino cold air intake is a good deal, because it maintains the most factory elements of any other cold air unit, which helps with warrenty issues. It will also give you a really good sound out of the turbo. I will let y'all know how the install goes and everything.
the chip runs about 599 plus more for the added features such as "lock-out" and anti theft and other things (they have about 5 or 6 additional features). the cold air intake is 279 and the full exhaust is about 1300 with a cat back available for less. its all laid out on their website, www.goapr.com
When you mention all these HP gains is this at the crank or the wheels? A stock GTI is putting out no less than 200hp at the wheels which we all know means VW has underrated this engine by quite a bit.
i'm not sure, but im going tommorrow to try and get the cold air intake installed, but either way, im going to try and get them to dyno it with at least the chip. I know that they can pull the engine HP off of the direct port programmer, so at the very least, i will know what that is.
