Thread: Golf R MK7 / Audi S3 8V tuning thread

  1. #1

    Smile Golf R MK7 / Audi S3 8V tuning thread

    Hi all,

    I couldn't find a tuning thread for the Golf R / Audi S3 8V so I thought I would start one to get the ball rolling.

    Was wondering if anyone in Canberra had a R mk7 APR tuned / Revo as I would like to have a look, hear thoughts / impressions / drive. I currently have the ABT 400hp tune on my Audi S3 (also for Golf R). my review for those interested My ABT Audi S3 400 hp+ tune review

    and if anyone has had them dyno'ed on the notorious heart break dyno - dyno dynamics / roller rather than 2WD hub dynos

    Cheers

    There's been quite a bit of discussion on the APR stage 1 tune towards the end of the Mk7 Golf R Discussion Thread thread, although that currently runs to 278 pages and is a bit of a monster.

    Also check out the Tuning and Performance (inc ECU upgrades) forum, and specifically:
    2014 Golf R - REVO Stage 1 0-100kms in 3.7sec! Should I?
    Audi S3 8V ECU upgrades

    And welcome from over on ozAudi; love your S3.

    I would like to meet up with you to discuss, I am curious to see the performance and how it drives. The is similar to APR or REVO ECU reaps but torque is a fair bit lower. I like the idea of balance with tuning, more conservative tune, warranty is good piece of mind, I had a pirelli GTI tuned that had its warranty voided due to ECU remap, it was the most stressful experience ever! I sent a PM also

    Got this information today from ABT.

    No mention of the European 400hp numbers in Australia? Performance here would be pushing around 270kw and 460nm for around $6500. It
    does however have come with Warranty, and its 2 years 100,000km. That is the only warranted non factory tune in Australia that I know of. But APR stage 1 will blow this away with its performance for $2000. I could then keep the $4500 for future issues?
