Audi Performance and Racing development on the 2.5 TFSI EVO continues with yet another set of records for the platform. On May 1st, Keith Brantley piloted his APR Tuned RS3 into the 9’s down the ¼ mile, a first for the platform, and backed up his record with eight 9-second passes! In doing so he set several records for the platform, including the following:

9.83 Seconds – Quarter Mile ET
144.41 MPH – Quarter Mile Trap Speed
2.44 Seconds – 0-60 MPH via Dragy
4.79 Seconds – 60-120 MPH via Dragy
5.91 Seconds – 60-130 MPH via Dragy

We have included all of Brantley’s 9-second passes below including the conditions at the Montgomery Raceway Park in Montgomery, Alabama:
[email protected] – 2,175 FT Density Altitude (86.7F, 29%, 29.87 In.Hg.)
[email protected] – 2,187 FT Density Altitude (86.1F, 31%, 29.87 In.Hg.)
[email protected] – 2,197 FT Density Altitude (86.0F, 32%, 29.87 In.Hg.)
[email protected] – 1,924 FT Density Altitude (81.4F, 40%, 29.86 In.Hg.)
[email protected] – 1,930 FT Density Altitude (80.3F, 47%, 29.87 In.Hg.)
[email protected] – 1,571 FT Density Altitude (74.6F, 61%, 29.87 In.Hg.)
[email protected] – 1,382 FT Density Altitude (71.3F, 69%, 29.88 In.Hg.)
[email protected] – 1,341 FT Density Altitude (70.8F, 69%, 29.88 In.Hg.)

To give you a little more detail on the APR tuned 2.5 TFSI EVO we have listed Brantley’s vehicle setup and modifications:
2018 Audi RS3 2.5 TFSI
APR ECU & TCU Upgrades with E85
TTE625 Drop-in Stock-Housing Turbo
Intake System
Straight-Pipe / Dump Tube Exhaust System
Intercooler System
Fueling System
18×8.5 Wheels
245x40R18 Hoosier Drag Radials
Seats Removed

Overall we are really impressed with the results from APR’s setup. Brantley’s RS3 laid down over 600 WHP on the dyno before lighting up that track, and based on the results and if you watch the video you can see it was extremely capable at the drag strip. What we like most about this however is that given the turbo’s moderate size, the system makes for an excellent daily driver. However APR wanted to stress at this time it is not a production product that they currently sell, and much of the hardware upgrades are prototypes and proofs of concept. But I am sure that if you keep filling their inbox that they should be able to roll something out later this year.
