Audi A3 1.4 TFSI 125 by REVO - Disappointment inside
I recently had my A3 1.4 TSI 125 bhp remapped with REVO a couple weeks ago here in Spain. The software installation was smooth and flawless, we did some readings with VAG-COM (Turbo Boost, MAF and so forth) and everything seemed to be OK (at least thatís what the REVO dealer told me)
In my way back home, I tried to Ďfeelí the new enhancements, noticing it was more responsive and quicker from 3000 to 4500 rpm I also noticed that the car didnít lose power from 5500 to 6500 which it was pretty normal with the stock ECU software.
In the other hand, the turbo lag was my only complaint at that moment, and was the first difference I felt driving the car.
Of course those were just feelings, maybe I overestimate the remap, thinking it was going to be something different but at that moment I was happy with it, not thrilled but just happy.
And then I had the RR session to check the figures and thatís what I got:
I would like the experts to tell me if this is a normal graphic with this remap.

Obviously it was the same Dyno, and the weather conditions were pretty similar. I also made some videos if you want to check out:
Obviously I didnít expect 160 horses like ABT, APR and other tuning stores claimed to offer, but at least those 15Ė20bhp that REVO says they can pull out, but not just 5 which is a ridiculous gain, at least for me, i mean, numbers arenít everything but damn, just 5bhp after having spent 500ÄÖ.
Obviously i am very disappointed and I donít think anybodyís gonna complaint if say that I can not recommend having this engine remapped, at least with REVO.
