How Tuning Works

Your engine is operated by a hard drive, same as your computer. We refer to your engines hard drive as an ECU. Every ECU requires an operating file or tune. Performance software tuning is the process of installing a new operating file calibrated specifically for your vehicle.

Why Tuning?

The fact is, if you have a car that came from the dealer equipped with a turbo or supercharger, and its stock, then your car is slower than it needs to be! We have stage 1 tunes designed for otherwise stock vehicles, that offer increased HP when you want it, without sacrificing reliability.


Speed and performance are part of the Bluewater Performance DNA. We have been passionately building Volkswagen’s that compete competitively on road courses, as well at speeds above 200MPH+. These are race cars, and as much as we might like to, we can’t drive our race cars to work. We still need to get to work, and around here most of us drive Volkswagens. We want our daily drivers to be fast, fun, and reliable. As the exclusive Denver VW APR dealer, we have partnered with APR to provide performance solutions that do exactly what we need them to-provide safe and reliable power.

Safe and reliable doesn’t’t mean boring. APR offers software and hardware that will push your engine safely to its limits. Getting started, Stage 1 tunes are designed for vehicles with all stock hardware. As your need for power increases, you will need additional performance hardware. APR has everything you need to transform your Volkswagen in a way that suits your needs and budget. Having been in business since the birth of the 1.8T engine in 1997, APR has stood the test of time while other tuners have come and gone. In doing so, APR has proven to stand behind their products and their dealers. We are proud to be the exclusive VW APR dealer for the Denver region. APR has made our customers very happy for a very long time. Still reading and you want to keep your VW happy for a long time? Check out our VW Maintenance and VW Repair pages.
