APR ECU Upgrade for EA888 Gen3 


APR is pleased to present the ultimate engine control unit (ECU) upgrade for the 2.0T EA888 Gen 3 engine. APR’s ECU upgrade is available in octane-specific variations and is conveniently flashed to the vehicle’s factory ECU through the OBD-II port without any physical modification to the factory ECU.

The ECU’s Simos 12 and 18 engine management system is responsible for proper operation of the engine during constantly changing environmental and load conditions. With built in compensational data for environmental variables and varying load conditions, the factory ECU is far more complex and intelligent than units found in other vehicle makes and marques.

APR Stage I ECU Upgrade


APR’s ECU upgrades are one of the best horsepower-per-dollar modifications for the new 2.0T engine. The APR Stage I ECU Upgrade is designed to work without requiring other changes to the vehicle’s hardware. With the ECU Upgrade alone, APR’s Calibration Experts measured higher peak figures of 381 ft-lbs of torque and 316 horsepower with 98 RON octane fuel. Large gains were seen throughout the power band, including an additional 114 ft-lbs of torque and 87 horsepower. Even higher figures were achieved using race fuel. For those looking for a more modest bump in horsepower and torque, lower output software is available. In both cases the increase in horsepower and torque directly translates to an exceptionally quicker vehicle. Using advanced GPS measuring devices and the local IHRA certified drag strip, APR’s engineers conducted several acceleration tests. During the quarter mile sprint, the APR Stage I equipped vehicle crossed the finish line 1.094 seconds quicker, with an exit speed 13.3 MPH faster!

The APR Stage II ECU Upgrade is designed to work with APR’s Exhaust Downpipe. When combined with APR’s Intake System, peak power and torque figures grew further to 336 horsepower and 404 ft-lbs of torque. The additional hardware allowed the turbo to spool faster and power carried better towards redline, resulting in up to an additional 90 ft-lbs of torque and 28 horsepower.
