MK7 Golf R Tuning

Stage 1

340-388Bhp & 340-423Ft-lbs

Stage 1 for the MK7 Golf R is designed for MK7 Golf R’s without any upgrades. Although, it can be paired with intake upgrades and a cat-back exhaust for maximum horsepower and torque gains as well as improved intake, exhaust sound and rear end visuals.

You can opt to install the APR Stage 1 ECU software only, from this you’ll enjoy huge increases in power, torque and driving fun. As the MK7 Golf R can produce such huge amounts of torque, on manual and DSG cars the clutch can slip. To overcome this, APR has a ‘low torque’ Stage 1 for manual cars with a stock clutch and DSG cars with stock DSG software. To enjoy the APR Stage 1 High Torque, an upgraded clutch must be installed on manual cars OR the APR DSG software upgrade on DSG cars.

  • APR ECU Software (340-360hp & 340-360Ft-lbs)
  • APR ECU & APR DSG Software (350-370hp & 360-390Ft-lbs)
  • APR ECU Software & Clutch Upgrade (350-370hp & 360-390Ft-lbs)

If you want to take your MK7 Golf R one step further for maximum power output with APR Stage 1, you can add the 4 piece Racingline Intake Kit and a Cat-Back exhaust. This improves power, torque and sound.

Stage 2

Upto 410Bhp & 430Ft-lbs

Is Stage 1 power not enough for you? Take a look at Stage 2. Stage 2 is designed for a MK7 Golf R with a high-flow downipe which can be catless or have a high-flow cat installed. Ideally complemented by the Racingline 4 piece intake kit and a good quality aftermarket high-performance intercooler for maximum gains.

  • RSS Stage 2 ECU Software
  • High flow sports cat/ De-cat downpipe options

In addition to the minimum Stage 2 requirements, adding an intercooler will allow the engine to run more efficiently and unlock additional power

Stage 3

450Bhp +

Have you gotten used to Stage 2 power? It’s time to take a look at Stage 3. Stage 3 consists of at a minimum a larger turbo and combined with your power goals and use case will then determine what turbo and other upgrades are required to achieve this which could include high-pressure-fuel-pump upgrade, low-pressure-fuel-pump upgrade and custom ECU software to name some.
