Product Details

This upgrade can be performed via our Chip & Ship method or the vehicle can be dropped off at ECS Tuning's facility in Ohio and picked up the next business day.

Please Note: Only available for purchase and shipment in the United States

Avoid waiting around in a shop and paying for installation labor.  Save time and money by shipping your ECU to us, and we'll ship it back with your new software installed. 

Throughout their extensive research and development, entrance into the motorsports arena, and knowledge of the European vehicle line, APR has designed the ultimate upgrade for any vehicle. Dyno-proven horsepower increases and complete customization make APR ECU upgrades the absolute best value in performance. Even if your vehicle is stock, APR will extract hidden power with fuel and virtually all engine mapping.

APR has also introduced their revolutionary Enhanced Modular Chipping System, or EMCS. Developed and available exclusively from APR, EMCS allows you to change up to 5 different modes of performance from the driver's seat utilizing your OEM cruise control buttons. This keeps your performance discrete, perfect for those trips to the dealership.

APR achieves all of this performance without putting any of your vehicle's internal components at serious risk. This extra power comes from carefully recalibrated engine control strategies to give you an almost OEM feel with no loss of drivability or reliability often found in inferior systems.

Four different levels on performance let you choose your driving experience. 91, 93, and 100 octane performance levels is perfect for the street or occasional trips to the track. The versatility of choosing which mode to drive your vehicle in allows streetability with performance at the touch of a button. Valet mode lets you turn off the performance of your vehicle and limit speed and RPMs for when the vehicle is out of your hands.

This chip tune/reflash allows you to choose one level of performance or valet. Performance does not need to be purchased progressively, such as one before the other. If you just need 100 octane performance, APR and ECS Tuning are happy to oblige. Below are the statistics for each level of performance.

  • 91 Octane – 250hp/ 294lb-ft
  • 93 Octane – 254hp/ 303lb-ft
  • 100 Octane – 273hp/ 337lb-ft
  • Valet Mode – Speed Limited to 45mph, RPMS limited to 4500.

** Please note vehicle manufacturers issue many ECU part numbers and revisions throughout their vehicle lineup. As such, some ECUs tunes may be temporarily unavailable as new parts and/or revisions are released. In the event that we encounter this problem, we will contact the buyer before we begin the tune.
