So had the Revo map installed and I am a very happy bunny. The old map (probably of Quantum quality) felt a bit off and this was confirmed by the chaps doing the map, boosting too high then dropping to low and advancing the timing too much. The Revo map in contrast hold its boost to a much more linear scale so it feels so much smoother, quicker plus the engine generally feels happier than it did before.

Just goes to show you pay peanuts you get monkeys with re-maps. Thanks for the help as always chaps.

That's the difference between months of calibration work vs a hack job.

Did you get the SPS switch?  Handy to have in case you replace the battery.  You can also tweak some map settings with it too, and switch to stock mode etc.

I didn't mate, given all the other money I spent recently and with Chrimbo round the corner I had to be a little sensible. The remap chaps said they would flash back for nothing anyway and they're only 15 mins from work plus I can always get one later  :smiley:

Great choice. Not always the highest figures but it drives very well at Stage 1, I was blown away going from standard to Stage 1 Revo on my K03 TFSI

Less is more and smooth is faster.  If you're spinnin' you ain't winnin'.   

Personally I find Revo's figures to be realistic and their tune has that lovely press the pedal harder for more acceleration feeling.   Some tunes are littered with flat spots, are all top end and no bottom end, and vice versa.   And they retain the factory pedal mapping, too.  Not a fan of the 'linear' pedal map at all.

Thanks Dan  :smiley: It certainly has a nice feel to it!

Must say that after driving the car about 70 miles now it is completely different, the old map was all low down and sod all up top the Revo feels closer to stock in the way it brings the power in and I feel like I have much more control with the go pedal now than I had.

Saying that I had the wheels spinning in 3rd today coming off the roundabout onto the A23 in Brighton this morning  :grin: Cold weather and cold tyres = traction issues  :driver: :signLOL:

Haha, yep, traction is a nightmare this time of year and you can wave goodbye to your nearside front tyre  :grin:
