    Max Turbo Boost Revo settings

    A strange friend is luring me with his SPS3 dongle.

    Says my standard Revo settings (1.3 bar peak boost delivering 260bhp - 270 lbs/ft) is for girls and I should change to High boost 9 and Timing 7. This, he assures, will deliver some 282bhp and 289 lbs/ft torque (peak boost 1.5bar) whilst simultaneously restoring my flagging manhood. An offer a man in my position should not pass on lightly.

    He wants to set the car up for me but thought I should seek the expert advice of the Forum before agreeing. For instance, what would be the effect on the turbo? Has anyone out there been running non-standard settings or got any useful information to add here. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/goofy.gif[/img]

    I know there are people running high settings all the time with no problems, and I would feel that if it's there in the program then why not....Just my opinion though.

    I would take the offer and enjoy, but having said that I would be slightly worried about that much boost....

    Golf Bygone, I'd be more worried about the heat involved at that BHP. A FMIC might be a good idea before taking it to the max.

    The way you drive bruno, your car will need a new body shell before anything mechanical goes!!
    Heat shouldn't be a major problem, as the i/c's on the S3 are prety efficient on the road. The one I logged didn't go much over 50C when having the sh*t kicked out of it on a 29C day, running high boost.
    My front mount on the golf regularly sees higher temps than this.
