Apr ecu tunes EA113 updates

Anyone got this updates already? Any feedbacks on this? I am going to do a re-tune on my stage 2+ this weekend.

It looks to me like APR watered down their tunes. Stage 1 on 93 octane used to make 252hp and 303tq, now it looks like it's 237hp and 256tq. So if I were you, I wouldn't go back and have your tune re-flashed. Unless I'm misunderstanding something here?

I am really surprised the new EA888 is so much more tunable. even the stg1 make more torque than K04 EA113

Okay, so I gotta ask...since I have APR stage 1

Should I or should I not go to my local APR dealer and have them tweak it?

Totally up to you.
I, for 1, am completely satisfied with the update. I just wish I knew better in the beginning, and NOT USED APR.

LOL. yeah, it's a "safe" alternative, to better tunes (albeit, not OTS) out there.

Stick with your current tune. You'll actually lose power if you get flashed to stage 2 with how their tunes are currently programmed.
