    APR engine software

    My car will be going to Awesome very soon to have a few bits and pieces done and fitted.

    The guys there mentioned they provide APR engine mapping. I know there are REVO lovers and haters on here, and yes I have searched but either there's an issue with the search, or there are no threads on APR, as it returned no results ... ?

    Anyhoo, good points, bad points, reviews?

    Many thanks!

    APR is a very smooth map and Revo is an aggressive map. Why don't you do trials of both maps? Revo do 5 hours and APR do 6 hours.

    My mate had an apr map on his s3, thought it was very good.. although his was not progressive like troopa says, it was more aggresive (this was a few years ago tho!).

    I was talking to some one at santa pod who had an apr map.. he said they have a new one out which is better, gives more torque.

    I had the APR map on my LCR (same engine). I had the 95 ron map at first and tbh couldn't really tell but with the 98ron map it was totally different. As said before it is really smooth unlike the aggresive Revo map, but it did give the same figures on the RR.
    Also had the anti-theft option on which is a great idea if you have the cruise switch.

    You can disable the ECU so it's impossible to start the car, you then need to input a 4 digit code to re-enable it. All of this is done via the cruise switch

    Thanks for the replies Ju. Awesome mentioned the switching. I have CC so dependant on costs, the standard, high ron and valet options would be very useful.

    When you get the APR map ask for the more developed LCR software, are you planning on going stage 2?
