APR Plus Limited Powertrain Warranty

Dear APR Plus Customer,
This booklet outlines the limited powertrain warranty applicable to your vehicle. Please read
this document carefully to understand your rights and obligations.
The APR Plus limited powertrain warranty has coverage that matches the term of your factory
powertrain warranty.
APR Plus performance engine software is designed to work with the minimum gasoline octane
rating required by the manufacturer for your vehicle. You can find this information listed on the
inside of your fuel filler door. Despite this minimum, APR highly recommends the use of
premium fuel (typically 91 or 93 octane depending on your location) for all APR Plus software.

covered under this Limited Warranty. We reserve the right to require an inspection of Your
Vehicle prior to any repair being made.

will be covered by this Limited Warranty.
If your vehicle breaks down on the road:

by Us on Your behalf. In some cases, You may need to pay the repair bill in full. If so, You will
