APR releases 3.0 TDI ECU tune software for the Audi Q7 and Volkswagen Touareg - +34 horsepower and +40 torque
APR has released software for 3.0 TDI diesel equipped Audi Q7 and Volkswagen Touareg vehicles. The upgrade appears to be rather mild with peak figures at the wheels increasing form 218 all wheel horsepower to 225 all wheel horsepower and all wheel torque up from 387 at all four wheels to 419 wheel torque at all four wheels. Peak gains however increase by up to 34 horsepower and 40 pound-feet of torque through the curve.
Acceleration improves mildly with a 1/10 gained in 0-60 and 4/10's in the 0-100 sprint. Normally we expect bigger gains from APR but the 3.0 TDI motor just does not seem to be that great of a diesel mod platform on the stock turbocharger. For those who want more power though with OEM quality, for $699.00 APR's 3.0 TDI flash will be tough to beat and you know it will be reliable.
