    Revo Select switch & prep for Stage 2+

    hi guys,

    basically im planning to go stage 2+ very soon. Unfortunately i have one of the cars with the dreaded misfire! After seeing Warrens mention of the TSB where Audi were building the engine with the wrong valve springs it got me worried.. I didnt want to get the car to Stage 2+ and it still happened..

    so i took the car to Audi and explained i knew about the TSB and that id like the problem sorted at which they responded "is your car mapped"

    So anyway i told them and straight away they were tryin to get out of it.. cut a long story short i gave them a full day of **** and then some friendly persuasion and they agreed they would sort the car out if i went back to stock... (including the "massive intake" as he put it)

    so now im trying to get a Revo Select switch so i can take the map off the car..

    can anyone clarify exactly how it works.. ive been on Revo website and i cant see anywhere to order a SPS unit and AmD tell me they dont sell them???

    also... once i recieve the switch how does it work? do i plug it in and it just D/L's stage 1??

    sorry if im being a knob but i been trying to sort this out all day with no luck (amongst working) sort of... i just need this sorted cause the thought of driving round stock makes me + i cant wait any longer for any more Horses

    any help much appreciated as always!

    For a quick fix get your local REVO agent to adjust the settings back to Zero so the car feels stock. Will do the job until you get a Select switch and can re-tweak the settings.


    good luck

    It's dead easy. It has a few pre set maps, one being stock. You simply plug it into the OBD2 port and it will put it back to stock. To put the performance map back on it's a case of setting the dial on the sps to your performance map position and plug it back in.

    Phone around a few dealers, I just got one off Tutts of dorking, they only had one switch, (I had that one) but had a select Plus (all singing dancing one), that is the one that you have have it set to different maps settings, and just change the setting on the switch.

    It is easy to use, just turn on ignition, select the number on the switch, IE turn knob to 1 for stock, plug it in to the connector where you plug in lead for vagcom, wait for a change of tone cannot remember which way around, then just pull it out, you do not have to leave it in.

    RYE, have you tried REVO direct? Thats normally how you get them, as places like AMD and the like don't sell them. When I had my car mapped, I was given a card with my map details on, and had to send away to REVO to get my select switch.

    Rye - The SPS/Select doesn't save your map onto it mate. The map stays on the car the whole time, but the switch adjusts the B/F/Tsettings.

    So select 'stock' (which is effectively B0/F0/T0 IIRC) on the switch and plug into the OBD.
    Then switch the ignition on (dont start engine).
    You will here it beep a tone and when (after anything between straight away and 40 secs) you hear the tone change you will know the settings have been adjusted.
    Then you just switch ignition off and remove the switch.

    Then when you want to put the settings back on you just do the same having selected A/B/C as you wish. This works the same for the anti-theft feature.

    I have Select + and you can preset what the settings are using a laptop, but if you didnt get the adjustable one, the settings for A B C should be in the instructions - but I would imagine A is the correct one for Stage 1 performance.

    Just a quick point mate, I was under the impression the incorrect valves were fitted to early S3 engines such as Warren's, are you sure it's the same fault?

    I'd have a check with Warren mate, I wouldn't want them to start ripping my engine to bits without being sure. Plus if it's not that they may not be so willing to carry out further diagnostic work.

    Hi,

    I've searched high and low for the technical service bulletin on t'internet and cannot find it anywhere. Seems to have mysteriously vanished.

    During the search the only similar document I was able to find was this (PDF download): LINK.

    Supposedly there are a batch of cars with the wrong colour springs in them, mine NOT being one of them. My hesitation is supposedly caused by modifications (according to Audi), so after ignoring them I'm having the fuelling system checked when it goes in for a clutch.

    Apologies, memory is too poor to remember the in's and out's but I hope this gives you something more useful than fresh air.

    Cheers warren! I don't know what to do now... Any recommendations? I don't fancy audi taking the car apart finding the right valve springs then saying it's down to mods you have to pay for rebuild

    It's a tough one mate but this may be your only opportunity to get them to do any diagnostic work for you gratis. I'm still trying to decide whether to take my Evoms out so they can have a look at my idling problem
