Performance Upgrades

Home / Services / Performance Upgrades

The fun stuff!!  When you want high-performance modifications for your Audi, Volkswagen, or Porsche, there is no better shop in Arkansas.

Software
One of the quickest ways to increase horsepower, torque, and improve throttle response is with a performance engine software flash.  We researched and tested many software and hardware performance upgrades.  Our experiences led us to become dealers for APR and Unitronic.

APR -  Enhancing the Driving Experience
APR’s sole mission is to engineer only the highest quality tuning solutions for Volkswagen, Audi, and Porsche vehicles ensuring the enthusiast the ultimate driving experience while consistently providing the enthusiast the ultimate in customer care and support.  You can see more about the APR products at their web site: https://www.goapr.com/

Unitronic - Prides itself on providing the highest quality Performance Software & Hardware products, engineered to maximize performance, while maintaining complete OEM-like reliability and drivability from your V.A.G. brand vehicle.  You can see more about the Unitronic products at their web site: https://www.getunitronic.com/products

Intake System
A less restrictive intake system allows more air into your engine.  More air=more horsepower!  Not all intake systems are created equal.  Thus; we recommend and install APR, AWE Tuning, and other quality intake systems.  Our consultation process will fit a solution option for you.

Turbocharger/Supercharger Upgrades
In forced induction vehicles, the exhaust-driven turbocharger(s) compress air and pack it into your cylinders, substantially increasing the engine output vs. a normally aspirated version. The engine’s ECU software capability to control turbo and supercharger upgrades is critical to optimize the system.  You can rest assured that the hardware and software packages we offer have been designed and tested to stringent quality standards.  We will consult with you to determine a complete package to meet your specific requirements.

Suspension Upgrades
Power is nothing without control.  A stock suspension was designed with many different drivers in mind.  Recently, comfort has taken precedence over a sporty and responsive ride, and the steering input feel has been taken out of the driver’s hands.  Replacing strut/shock assemblies with a quality coil-over kit will substantially increase the vehicle responsiveness and control. Combined with upgraded sway bars, you end up with confidence-inspiring handling.  Many of our coil-over suspension packages come standard with multiple adjustable damping and rebound adjustments.  With these adjustments, we can fine-tune your suspension for a custom solution of driving comfort and performance handling.

Exhaust Systems
The engine is one big air pump. A less restrictive exhaust can free up horsepower by expediting more air through the system. Another free-flow exhaust system benefit is a more aggressive exhaust tone. We offer quality systems engineered to produce the best power while reducing unwanted drone. Our one on one consultation will provide custom solution options and pricing for your consideration.

Brake Systems
When you start adding more performance-oriented software and hardware to the car, more stopping power is a requirement. From brake compounds and stainless steel braided brake hoses to full Big Brake Kits (BBK’s), we can put a custom package together to meet your needs.

Drivetrain
From performance clutch assemblies to differentials we can improve the drivetrain for less power loss and more response.
