Anyone else in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast region get an Email from APR about much anticipated software and hardware upgrades for those of us who purchased the kits?

Looks like some APR engineers will be in Aberdeen, MD at New German Performance from December 12th-16th do upgrade the cars, dyno test and correct any problems.

A car with the updates is making 451 All Wheel Horsepower -- that translates to about 540 Crank Horsepower. That's insane. I, for one, can't wait.

I'll be there. Not sure which day(s). I'm only about an hour and a bit away from there in Delaware.

I tried the calculator. It shows a typical stage 1 tune should give you about 300 WHP on an R with about 360 CHP. Can anyone with a stage 1 verify the numbers?

As I don't have the Stage 1 tune, no, but APR's own crank HP numbers for Stage 1 Tunes are pretty much right in line:

Crazy numbers, seems to be a real giant killer set up.

Drivetrain loss isn't anywhere near 20%. Maybe 10.

Maybe for a front wheel drive GTI but AWD has a higher drivetrain loss.

I'll be there on the 14th for my appointment. Was going to be the 12th, but the guys from Smith Volkswagen want to come too, so I made it the 14th.
