As such, our tuning specialists are on standby to transform your vehicle with fitment of APR software and hardware products. You don’t even have to live on or near the Sunshine Coast to enjoy the benefits of an APR upgrade. We happily extend our services from the Sunshine Coast through to Cairns. That is the beauty of APR software, we don’t need your car, just the ECU (computer) and our bench programing system can deliver the powerful upgrade.

We hold a wide variety of APR hardware components in stock to either fit to your vehicle for you, or ship to you preferred address should you not live in the local area.

Until you experience the drive for yourself you can’t truly appreciate how much power there is available in your engine. That is why we have two demonstrator vehicles available for you to drive and enjoy the APR difference. One Golf R and one Golf 1.4 TSi are ready when you are – some conditions apply to qualify for a test drive.


The ECU is powerful, but extremely difficult to master. Without mastery, the ECU must be simplified, removing what makes it so desirable. The result is an incomplete product that often requires end user adjustment to maximize output in limited scenarios. On the contrary, APR’s Engineers spent the better part of a decade mastering the ECU to unlock its full potential. With complete access to the thousands of maps, tables and variables within, as well as a high-level understanding of how it works, APR’s Engineers were able to take advantage of everything the ECU has to offer. Power is maximized in nearly all scenarios, eliminating the need for end user adjustments. High performance operational modes are enabled and calibrated to deliver smooth daily driving, with a snappy and responsive throttle during moments of spirited driving. Mastery of the boost control system makes for an impressively predictable driving experience as the turbo spools quickly, delivering instant power, while torque-by-gear helps with traction control and protects the engine from being lugged out in tall gears. Lastly advanced high-output protection routines are enabled, allowing the ECU to make constant adjustments to airflow and fuel to cool and protect the engine, all without the driver knowing otherwise.

APR’s ECU upgrades dramatically increase horsepower and torque, making for an exceptionally quicker and more exciting vehicle. This is made possible through APR’s optimization of the factory engine management system to take full advantage of the engine’s capabilities, without needing any end user adjustment. The software loads to the factory ECU through the OBD-II port (often referred to as port tuning) resulting in a clean and headache-free install.
