Welcome to your monthly service and check-up for all things Revo related, directly from the people behind the brand. This month we’ve taken a look at some of our latest releases, blog posts and more general news from the team; just in case you missed anything.
RV018 Wheels now available for mk8 Ford Fiesta ST – 4 x 108
We’re pretty good at designing beautiful products, but the real art is ensuring they provide the hike in performance you’re looking for. We recently launched the latest addition to our stunning light weight, motor-sport inspired wheels. The RV018 is now available in 18” alongside the already hugely successful 19” RV019. Designed in-house at Revo HQ, the British manufactured RV018 and RV019 wheel is created using the finest Norwegian aluminium and finished using only the best German paint. We’ve backed this up with full TUV approval – which tests the wheels to destruction in Austria – to ensure safety and reliability too.
Both weighing in at under 10kg per corner, the RV0 wheel is a perfect modification and step towards reducing your cars un-sprung mass weight. By ditching the heavy stock wheels, you can dramatically reduce your vehicles un-sprung mass and provide urgent and improved acceleration, along with better braking potential. If taking care of the braking system is next on your list, we’re already one step ahead. Both the RV018 and RV019 are designed to fit the Revo Big Brake Kit with ease, so you don’t have any headaches when it comes to upgrading your stopping power.
RV019 wheels are available in two fitments with a choice from gloss silver, black and anthracite as well as matte anthracite. The newly released RV018 is available in multiple VAG fitments, as well as specifically for the Mk8 Ford Fiesta ST in a 4 x 108, ET40 8×8 fitment. The 18” option is available in three of our most popular colours; gloss black, matte anthracite and matte bronze finish. You can check out the entire range and find more details by viewing the products here.

New Ford Ranger TDCI OEM+ Air Intake system upgrade
Allow your engine to breathe! When you begin to enhance engine performance, the restrictive OEM air intake struggles to flow enough air, robbing you of power. Revo’s OEM+ air intake systems are designed to remove and improve restrictive elements, while utilising and retaining the stock OEM airbox. Giving your engine access to the right amount of air is paramount when increasing performance, and the new Revo OEM+ air intake system provides your ford ranger with both. More air means more power throughout the rev-range.
The new kit comes with everything you’ll need, including the parts that a lot of other options won’t contain.
- A silicone hose to reduce restriction and maximise smooth airflow for more power and torque throughout the rev range. This replaces all the OEM plastic pipework to improve airflow from intake to inlet.
- A custom designed Revo air filter supported by galvanised epoxy-coated mesh for strength under load. Revo filters trap debris and particles in the foam layers, while allowing air to still navigate through. This is also a fully serviceable item, so you can just wash and re-oil when required.
- All required fitting instructions and hardware.
Only Revo air intake systems are specifically designed to work in harmony with your vehicle and Revo software. To feel the true benefit of any air intake system upgrade, we recommend running Revo ECU Software in order to enjoy the benefit of a less restricted air intake system. You can find out more about the Revo Ford Ranger OEM+ Air Intake System by visiting our website. This upgrade is available for 2015> Ford Ranger 2.2 and 3.2 TDCI. We’re also running a special Black Friday offer on Revo ECU Software for a limited time, find out how you can save here.
Open cone air intake system for the Audi S4 & S5 3.0 TFSI
Make your Audi S4 / S5 3.0 TFSI far from standard. The Revo open cone air intake systems improve performance whilst adding an aggressive intake sound. Don’t let your OEM intake restrict your engine after enhancing performance and provide it with the air flow it deserves.
Engineered directly to replace the stock airbox, pipework and filter. This kit comes complete with a ceramic coated pipe – you read right, ceramic, coated – a laser-cut heat shield, filter and fitting kit. The pipe is designed to directly replace the plastic corrugated parts, the single-piece mandrel-bent aluminium intake pipe reduces turbulence and internal restrictions.
Coated with a Zircotec ceramic coating, a thermal barrier is created reducing heat soaking into the intake pipe and helping to keep intake air cooler. The coating also allows the pipe to cool faster which is important when increasing power.
Ensuring your engine has access to cold air is vital for performance. The Revo heat shield channels cold air from the front intake duct, while partitioning the filter from the heat of the engine. By using the stock mounting points the Revo heat shield provides an easy and secure insulation.
Back to back testing was carried out to guarantee performance as well as confirming an increase in intake noise. Fitted to an Audi S5 3.0 TFSI B8.5 with Revo ECU Software, Revo charge cooler and supercharger pulley upgrade, the results of fitting the intake were a pure power gain from 3900 to 6800 rpm.
Revo offer power hike for mk8 Fiesta ST owners hungry for more
The Mk7 Fiesta ST was a pretty fun car to drive. With the consensus that Ford have managed to not only maintain but improve on this with the release of the Mk8, we’ve launched ECU Software that takes the fun up another notch.
Through intensive testing on the road, our mission is to find the perfect balance of power and economy with a focus on delivering a thrilling drive. In order to provide you with the driving experience you expect from Revo, we spend a serious number of hours in the driving seat. Revo ECU software for the Mk8 Ford Fiesta ST is designed and engineered to work in harmony with an otherwise totally standard car, unleashing the true potential of your car and unlocking the full potential from other upgrades such as an air intake system.
If you’re researching what Software to choose, then here’s a little point to remember. High figures do not necessarily mean a fast car and are often used to hook people in without fully explaining the potential negative effects. Revo Software is only ever verified on the dyno before, and after tuning. In between? Well we drive where you’ll be most of the time, on the road. Our leading team of calibration engineers only ever finalise the final power figures at the end of the calibration project – that’s how much focus we put on drive-ability.
Don’t just take our word for it, we recently let Jamie from FastFord magazine behind the wheel of Revo HQ development Fiesta ST. Here’s what he thought;

The Revo fleet of cars spends much of their time as workhorses for software and hardware product development. Occasionally though, we let them off the leash! This year’s PAAA day at Castle Combe Circuit opened the chance to do exactly that. We let three of them out to play – our infamous 500bhp VW Golf R, Stage 1 Ford Fiesta ST and our freshly-wrapped 400bhp Audi A3. Read the full write up from the damp day in Bristol.
Earlier in the year, three of the Revo team packed up and set out on a journey of epic proportions. The plan; drive over 1000 miles to Wörthersee to take part in one of the biggest VW shows on the planet. Buckle up as things step up a notch and get super art-ty.
BTG Performance based in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, is one of our premier Authorised Dealers. They host an annual open day (and it’s one not to be missed) so we sent along with two of our in-house experts, along with a few of our power-packing fleet in support of what was set to be another of BTG’s well-supported events.
REVO’s resident racing driver Alex Bones dominates Time Attack 2019
Not content with claiming the 2018 Pro Extreme Championship title overall in a big power Lancer Evo. Alex took to the circuit again this year with his sights set on the Clubman silverware too.
With a tight budget, a small but driven pit crew and enough ambition to unnerve many of the better-funded teams, Alex made the Revo team proud with consistent podium appearances all year. The final, streamed live from Snetterton circuit proved to be as nail-biting as we expected with two rounds, over two days. Alex got the job done and secured his second consecutive Time Attack championship win overall in as many seasons, winning six of the seven rounds and setting 4 new class lap records along the way too. If you’re interested in following what Alex gets up to, then you can follow him on Instagram, facebook or subscribe to his YouTube channel.
European sales account manager Steve picks up an Mk5 golf r32 for £9.87
If someone offered you a clean Mk5 Golf R32 for £9.87, the first thing you would ask is ‘what’s the catch?’Revo European Sales account manager Steve loves a bargain, sometimes a little too much. With a pretty epic self-built K04 powered Mk2 Golf, he does have some other more questionable choices of vehicles in his fleet. The latest addition, however, is somewhat hard to knock or wind him up about. After taking part in one of those online ‘buy a ticket and win a car’ live raffles, Steve only went and won; who’d have known. He’s already got a long list of parts to christen the new arrival, but what would be the first thing you would change? Let us know below.
