    Re: Vf vs arp tune which is better?

    I have a Gen 2 base and the choice of either tune. I went with VF because of their longstanding history of working with the V10. I felt a difference across the rev range due to the additional torque and the top end has been opened up. I track the car and have before and after data to show what the VF tune, in isolation, result in. With no other changes to the car, I picked up 4mph on the back straight at VIR. That straight is a good barometer of the car and not the driver because of the slow corner leading into it.

    The only real advantage to APR over VF is APR will offer you a warranty similar to Dinan for $5k.

    I have a plus and went with VF, no gains at all. I am assuming that for base models it will work fine as the plus maintains its performance figures. Also the fact that you can tune and go back to stock on your own is very convenient.

    With no intention to distract from real-world / first-person reviews
    and feedback ... we just thought we'd remind people of the two
    incentives we offer for all of our normally aspirated tuning options.

    1) 30-day, no questions asked, return policy

    2) Full 100% credit towards future supercharger upgrade


    These two incentives alone should lower the barrier of entry and
    eliminate any concerns as to whether our software is "worth it" or
    not.



    If it's not worth every penny you spent, simply return it!

    If you do enjoy the software, but end up still looking for even MORE
    power in the future
    , you are eligible for a full credit of the purchase
    price to be applied towards any of our supercharger options.



    All bias aside, the software is no-brainer for any standard (540bhp) V10
    model as it bridges the gap to the PLUS model (610bhp), and then some!

    The benefit for the PLUS model is obviously not as great as the non-PLUS
    models, but still very much noticeable for those who may not yet be ready
    to add forced induction. Even our Huracan Performante (630bhp) customers
    seem to be pleased, which is the highest power class offered by Audi/Lamb.

    We tune a handful of Gen2 R8's on a regular basis and pick up great power gains. We offer a handheld device with our software to allow the users to flash back to their stock file if they ever needed - super easy to do.

    We just finished up a Riviera Blue Plus the other week - customer called back after the weekend and was stunned by how much better she moves now.

    I'd love to chat more! Sending you a PM now.
