http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif OMG this chip is without a doubt, the REAL DEAL! I personally have no experience with any chip tuners- I figure that they all have their ups and downs- I just wanted to go to someone local in case of issues- and my 337 has huge issues of an abundant power increase!!! I SWEAR it pulls as hard in third now as it did in second with stock ECU... I need to dyno this thing! I got the valet, stock, 93, 100, fault clear, TPalignment, and security lockout deal... Thank you Andreas of Steves European Automotive, located in Waterford, MI for personally doing the de-soldering, right in front of me...
NO surging, no CELS, nice quiet PHSSSSS from stock DV with my airbox mods...... http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif APR all the way for me! :thumbup

Re: Just got 1.2 bar APR Version 2! informal review here (RoyalOakMichiganJim)

What's version 2 about? More than 215hp? I will be going with APR as well, whenever they get the code done for the 20thAE.

Re: Just got 1.2 bar APR Version 2! informal review here (RoyalOakMichiganJim)

How much did you pay for the chip with all that different program settings?? As thats is almost all the program settings that I wanted to do.
I really want to go APR but nobody here in town does any APR installs. So I want to buy just the chip and head down to S. Cali for the install.
Thanks.

It actually runs less boost and more timing. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Just got 1.2 bar APR Version 2! informal review here (Nikon101)

if I am not mistaken, doesn't APR only have 1.0 bar ecu upgrade and they have it in the 91,93 and 100 octane. I have never seen any 1.2 bar offered by APR, so please show me proof of this.
I just went to their website and this is quoted off of their VW Golf/GTI 1.8T page.
"Stage I - 1.0 Bar ECU/Chip Upgrade
APR 1.0 Bar ECU Upgrade"
"The APR Golf/GTI chip is available in a 1.0 Bar configuration"

There have been rumors of a 1.2 bar program from APR for a while. This could be an initial test release.

It's not the 1.2 bar, it's the 1.0 bar version 2.0 that we all have had for a while.......
It's been released since May 28th, 2003.

less boost when you think about peaks but more boost in the higher rpms range ... to sum it up the boost will hold longer till redline then just dying down right after the peak.
everyone that has the upgrade has been saying how smooth it is ... cannot wait till the APR Serial is coming out in a few weeks

I mean how much more can get you get out of the car

APR is releasing a SPP? so no "CHIP?" just like "REVO?"

FYI, Apr Version 2 is NOT a 1.2 BAR program. There is NO SUCH THING as the 1.2 bar program.

Yes ... I think they will release it for waterfest ... I have been talking to a lot of people and first found out about APR Serial when revo first came out ... thats why I waited

APR released V2.0 which seems to be very powerful ... supposedly the Serial Programming will be even more powerful then the current V2.0 ... but thats just based on comments from APR .. they have not said anything specific just that they wait will be worth it ... I hope

HONDKLR is having his 337 done at APR, I think he's going all the way to Stage IV. I've heard a lot of good stuff from APR and if my memory is correct they have been doing turbos systems and R&D for about 10 years now... http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif Can't wait to get mine.

That was way off base. APR doesn't have a stage 4 nor have they been around for ten years.

They are doing the testing on his 337 for the Stage 4 kit, Thats why you haven't seen it yet. They have had it for 3-4 months +.
As for the 10 year thing, I said - "If my memory was correct" They have been around for how long? 5+ years.... You tell me?

Get your fact straight and read the entire post before you "try" to flame people.

Why would APR test something on a customers car when they already have a 337 of their own?

Re: Just got 1.2 bar APR Version 2! informal review here (VDUBNDizzy)

I just talked to my APR rep. that installed my APR 93 chip. He told me that APR just increased the software to be 1.2 bar instead of 1.0 bar to compete with the other chips like REVO. I am not sure the truth of all of this as of yet. I did email APR as well.
