Stage 3 Performance Software


Revo Performance Software is the result of a passion for quality. From a group of car enthusiasts who strive to provide the ultimate performance experience, Revo follows a tuning philosophy that results in the perfect balance of performance, driveability and economy, without sacrificing engine longevity. From initial Software calibration development at Revo HQ, UK, the final product is achieved through an extensive Global Development Programme. This allows fine-tuning on multiple vehicles in several continents, and testing in a range of climatic conditions such as varying fuel qualities, temperatures, altitudes and greatly differing driving styles. This process is driven by the demand for a quality product that produces consistent results and is ultimately what sets Revo apart from the rest.



2.0 TSI ENGINE & IS38ETR


When combining Revo's expertise in hardware design, development, testing and manufacture with Revo Performance Software the outcome is a complete package to rival anything from an OEM Manufacturer. The next logical step for the EA888 engine was to improve the airflow in and out the engine and look into cooling. The Revo Air Intake System works in conjunction with the Revo Intercooler and a quality downpipe and turbo back exhaust system to provide a solid base for further enhancements, specifically an upgraded Turbocharger.

Revo had a question with the feasibility of project “ETR IS38 Hybrid Turbocharger” before we started testing: could we produce a package that would reliably give around 500BHP/550NM on an EA888 GEN3 car running stock fuel system, stock internals and on stock DSG?

After testing different turbo packages, pipework, fueling and cooling solutions with varying levels of boost on Shell vPower, we had our answer on our UK test car: YES! We had spent over 6 months testing in the UK at our testing facility at Bruntingthorpe Providing Ground, thousands of miles on the roads in the UK, many track sessions with dyno charts from different dynos around the UK. Feedback was great, the car felt quick, we were making the power and we were ready to move to the next phase by utilising our experienced and passionate dealer network with their equally exuberant customers.

Development & Results



The net result is that our IS38ETR package has undergone an exhaustive Global Development Programme over multiple cars through our global dealer network with over 200,000miles of on road testing in varying climatic conditions, poor fuel, race fuel, on track over ¼ mile or round some of the best racing circuits all over the world for the last 12-18 months. During this time we have fine-tuned the hardware and software to ensure the final package is the best it can be with additional features such as cold and hot oil temperature power reduction, engine oil cooler valve optimisation and turbo heat management. Once we had the cars all running as we would expect, we then sought power runs on various dynamometers throughout the world giving us real world figures from each region.

Revo, our dealer network and BETA testers are very proud of the resulting package with complete confidence it will achieve our goal of providing owners of EA888 Gen3 cars an upgrade path that will result in a car that, with a stock engine, fuel system and gearbox, will be as happy going to the shops with your mother driving as it will beating most current supercars over a ¼ mile.

Added Features



Cold Start Protection Feature


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 until the oil temperature increases and reaches optimum operating levels.

     
  • Oil below 50ºC: Boost limited to 50%
  • Oil between 51ºC and 65ºC: Boost limited to 75%
  • Oil above 65ºC: Full boost available


Temperature Protection


Revo Stage 3 Software is developed to work in harmony with the Revo IS38ETR Turbo and Revo upgraded parts on a standard engine. Testing indicated that in high-temperature conditions (rolling road, high ambient temps, and prolonged Vmax use) oil temperatures can climb to an undesirable level. Revo Temperature Protection is an additional safety feature that reduces overall load as the oil temperature hits a set limit. The oil cooler valve opens sooner with Revo Software to ensure earlier cooling of oil. This feature actively monitors exhaust gas temperatures, adapting the requested load (power) to ensure they stay within safe parameters. If EGT's reach a set temperature, then power is automatically reduced until the engine returns to a safe operating temperature.



Switchable Software


Using an SPS switch you are able to take advantage of the switch-ability of Revo software. The Patented OBD2 interface is the ultimate compliment to our performance software, giving the user the ability to switch between 4 fuel quality modes (97RON, 98RON, 100RON and 102RON) and a stock performance setting via the vehicle OBD port.

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.
