Everything to know about the Revo SPS Switch

The first generation SPS switches were launched way back in 2003.

Since then, we’ve kept our finger on the pulse to keep the SPS up to date and functioning with new manufacturer technology and ECU types. Although most of the switches look similar, significantly earlier versions may not function on later vehicles.

SPS1
2003-2005

Early Revo SPS1 Software Switch

The Revo SPS1 switch was pioneered switchable ECU software, allowing customers to switch the vehicle between various performance modes quickly and easily. With performance modes safely set up by an Authorised Revo Dealer, for the first time you could choose modes set up for different fuel qualities and even an anti theft mode.

This switch was designed to function on ME7 and EDC15 ECUs found in vehicles running theΒ VW Group 1.8T, 2.7T, 3.2LΒ and 1.9TDi engines from the same era.

SPS2

Early Revo SPS2 Switch

There wereΒ two versions released of the SPS2 between 2003 and 2005. This switch was designed to function on ME7 and EDC15 ECUs found in vehicles running the VW Group 1.8T, 2.7T, 3.2L and 1.9TDi engines switching was betweenΒ the following modes:

SPS2 Modes (v1)

Stock
95 Ron (Boost 6, Fuel 9, Timing 2)

SPS3
2003-2005

We always recommend leaving set up to your Revo Authorised Dealer. However, if you know what you’re doing, adjusting the Boost, Fuel and Timing values should always be done whilst monitoring the effects on the engine under load using a live data-acquisition tool. This switch was designed to function on ME7 and EDC15 ECU’s found in vehicles running the VW GroupΒ 1.8T, 2.7T, 3.2L and 1.9TDi engines.

This switch retained functionality with theΒ ME7 and EDC15 ECUs found in vehicles running the VW GroupΒ 1.8T, 2.7T, 3.2L and 1.9TDi engines.

There wereΒ two versions of the Select between 2005 and 2009, switching was betweenΒ the following modes:
