ONLY THE DRIVEN
Revo offers some of the most substantial performance increases on the market, however, only the driven know that peak figures form part of a much bigger picture and are never the sole focus during Revo’s development process; it’s all about the drive. Only Revo offers a perfect balance of performance, economy and engine longevity.
The Revo tuning philosophy ensures that impressive performance benefits are balanced with useable, reliable power delivery that enhances the way your vehicle drives. Development on the road and racetrack as well as testing in controlled dyno conditions gives you a clearer picture of the performance you can expect from Revo ECU Software. Testing in this way plays an important role in ensuring the highest quality products and delivering the driving experience expected.
2.0TSI GEN3 GPF
The latest generation 2.0TSI engine has seen some substantial changes in factory form to keep in line with the latest emissions laws. Most notable is the introduction of the GPF (Gasoline Particulate Filter) and the change to the single port injection system. Close monitoring of the GPF system has been an essential step in finding the limitations and tuning potential of the newer DNU* engines. The general consensus is that the GPF not only mutes but limits the engine power, Revo ECU calibration might be a reason to dispute that.
Enhancing the vehicle with Revo ECU Software gives you much more than just an increase in power and torque. A large part of development is based on drive cycle and driver feedback, our calibration doesn’t just give a great dyno curve and peak power/torque figures but also delivers in feel; giving a smoother yet more responsive feel at low RPM/ partial throttle with huge gains at wide-open throttle throughout the whole rev range.
Only Revo performance ECU Software maintains factory safety levels and additional driving features. You can switch between three pre-set fuel quality modes depending on the fuel you use; these modes are set through testing our development vehicles in varying climatic conditions with a range of fuel quality throughout the world. The Revo SPS Software Switch is also available separately, can be used to quickly switch between performance modes and access the additional Anti-Theft mode.
GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME
Only Revo operates a Global Development Programme through its network of over 400 Revo Authorised Dealers worldwide. Access to vehicles on this scale enables the calibration team to fine-tune products before release, testing products in a wide range of climates and conditions including altitude, fuel quality, humidity. This also allows Revo to test how Revo products perform in different driving scenarios and formed a vital part in the development of Performance ECU Software.
COLD START PROTECTION
For engine oil to work effectively and lubricate your engine it needs time to warm up. When you first start your car, the cold oil is at its thickest, producing higher oil pressure when pumped around the engine putting extra pressure on oil seals. As the engine temperature increases, so does oil temperature. This thins the oil, enabling it to run more freely and better lubricate the moving parts of your engine. Cold Start Protection helps protect engine components by limiting turbo boost based on RPM and oil temperature until it reaches the 80ºC optimum operating level.
Revo Temperature Protection is an additional safety feature that reduces overall load as the oil temperature passes a set limit. Exhaust gas temperatures (EGT) are also monitored, adapting the operating conditions (Air Fuel Ratio) to ensure they stay within safe parameters. If EGT's reach a set upper limit, then power is automatically reduced until the engine returns to a safe operating temperature.
ENHANCED TURBO CONTROL
Revo Enhanced Turbine Control offers factory-like protection parameters to avoid over-boost and ensure turbine speeds do not exceed a safe level.
The gauges on the centre console & instrument cluster have been reconfigured to display a true representation of the increased performance. The stock default values for manifold pressure and engine power have been raised.
Using an SPS switch you can take advantage of the switch-ability of Revo software. The Patented OBD2 interface is the ultimate compliment to Revo performance software, giving you the ability to switch between 3 fuel quality modes and an Anti-Theft mode via the vehicle OBD port.
- SPS Position 1 – Antitheft Mode
- SPS Position 2 – 95ron Performance Mode
- SPS Position 3 – 97ron Performance Mode
- SPS Position 4 – 99ron Performance Mode
Simply select a program, plug in, wait a few seconds, remove the SPS device and start the car. It's simple and there's no fixed switch to install in the vehicle.
As well as the fuel quality modes, Revo software is installed with built in Antitheft Mode. Once the vehicle is put into this mode via the SPS device the engine revs will drop and throttle response will be disabled. The low revs mean the car will struggle to be moved even on the clutch without stalling. Adding an extra level of security to your vehicle. Switch it back to a performance mode and enjoy the drive.
