APR releases new APR Plus and Stage 1 ECU upgrades for Audi R8 and Lamborghini Huracán 5.2L FSI V10 engines, offering major increases in both horsepower and torque

(Opelika, Alabama) January, 2019 – APR unveiled today the new APR Plus and Stage 1 ECU upgrades for 5.2L FSI V10 engines. These upgrades are compatible with a wide range of Audi R8 V10 and Lamborghini Huracán models, including Audi R8 V10, R8 V10 Plus, R8 V10 RSW, Lamborghini Huracán RWD LP580-2 and Huracán LP610-4. APR’s Stage 1 ECU upgrade is designed for significant gains in horsepower and torque while maintaining drivability and naturally aspirated engine character, while APR Plus offers a limited powertrain warranty on all APR Stage 1-upgraded vehicles used with 91 AKI (95 RON) octane fuel to ensure reliability and owner peace of mind.

The Stage 1 ECU upgrades are intended to work with stock 5.2L FSI V10 engine and drivetrain components without the need to install additional aftermarket parts. This allows for power output of 634-653 HP and 420-427 FT-LBS of torque, depending on fuel used. These increases range throughout the engine’s power band offering overall performance increases of up to 104 HP and 64 FT-LBS of torque over stock. Improvements offered by the Stage 1 ECU upgrades include support for left foot braking, speed limiter removal, a raised 9,000 RPM rev limiter, fully adjusted thermal management, optimized throttle, intake and exhaust flaps, lambda control, port/DI splitting, cam phasing, more aggressive ignition timing and an update to the factory power and torque gauges. In addition, the Stage 1 upgrade offers on-demand ECU program switching between up to four modes (utilizing APR’s mobile application) including a reduced-speed valet mode and quiet cold starting. Additional features include support for 91 AKI (95 RON) and 93 AKI (98 RON) gasoline and E60-E85 ethanol fuel.

Also available is the APR Plus variant for the Stage 1 ECU for 5.2L FSI V10 engines that provides a limited powertrain warranty matching OEM factory powertrain warranty term limits. APR Plus is available at all APR authorized dealers in the USA.
