    Chipping

    Hi all,

    I am new to this site but it looks great [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    I am after a bit of advice & from what I have seen from past discussions here you guys are the right poeple to ask.

    I have an Octavia vRS & absolutily love it ( & the look on other drivers facs when they are getting left behind [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] but I feel the time has come for a bit more grunt - I am looking at the chipping options & like the idea of having differnt modes for the chip as APR & Revo do, does anyone have any views on which would be the best option, as from what I can see they offer similar performance gains for similar . any one had any good/bad experinces with either?

    Cheers, I look forward to meeting some of you at up coming meets.

    Hi

    Best thing is to search through the forum for tuning / chipping. There's quite a few discussions about them!

    Gambba wrote a good list of the main tuners; MTM, Oettinger, AmD, APR and Jabbasport to name but a few.

    Re: Chipping

    think you find both system are fine and like you say offer pretty much the same bits

    the only thing i liked apr more than revo for was the way to switch the programs apr is via cruise control stalk and revo is via a dongl box

    either way you find it does make the car much more fun, there are other system out there as well from amd, jabba and others

    Oh ma gawd, 'ere we go again!!! Just say what you think John - that's all anyone can do.

    Personally all I feel qualified to say on this subject is that I have a Revo chip and I am not having any problems. I am enjoying it immensely. I have it on High Boost 9 permanently (1.5 bar). <b>Estimated</b> BHP is 270bhp - think torque is about 282 lbs/ft. (needs verifying with RR). It goes like sh*t and I only slow down for pussy cats.

    As a point of observation John. People reading your remarks might think you are referring to my post. I can assure anyone reading that any observations provided by me with regards to my vehicle's performance are, to the best of my knowledge, true and accurate.

    Perhaps you can confirm that you are not referring to anything I have said, please?

    Sorry mate I had tried to make the 'estimated' bit in bold in when I quoted you, so it wasn't aimed at you mate, and no you can't hug Jo [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

    Mind you I could do with a cold shower as well!!!!
    It's too darn hot today!

    Actually I've heard that fuel economy improves with chipping in theory but practice is a different matter. My S3 used to average around 29 MPG as standard, but now with chipping is around 27.5 MPG, but it all depends on my mood which normally ranges bewten crazed, insane or just pure psychotic.

    [/ QUOTE ]

    Well, with my Oettinger A3 I've found that as long as I keep it at or below 4k rpm, my fuel economy is quite a bit improved (from 11.5 l/100km to avg. 9.3-9.5). HOWEVER, when running it OVER 4k, economy drops rapidly. (I burnt over 15 liters getting home from work one day, and it's a 114km trip [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked2.gif[/img])

    Well if we are going on the principle of highest figures win then I would say that Oettinger offers the highest figures based on what research I did.....but we know that's not the way we go.

    Honestly you can't go wrong with the top tuners IMO.

    Totally agree...

    AmD, APR, MTM, Oettinger .etc are all as god as each other but offer different products.. which one you go for really does depend on your driving style! they all produce similar results, but in different places in the rev range. It ALWAYS comes down to personal preference, and peak figures mean very little.
