    Hiya,

    I have read that I can change the FPR to a 4bar unit that is a standard VAG part?!?!? Does anyone know what the number is???

    This is so that when I get a ECU upgrade later this year I can have the appropriate 4bar program installed.

    Thanks all!!!

    Gambba,

    I have a 1.8T 20v in an Octavia vRS. The 4bar FPR is an option when choosing the RevoTechnik ECU upgrade. I think there is only a small bhp increase but it maybe the only thing I change on the car from standard so want the most I can get!!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/devil.gif

    Still not decided what to eventually go for, Revo trial next Saturday for Five hours while a cruise /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif from Nottingham to Anglesey and can give it a fair trial in that time.

    Looks like the numbers do change this is the part number out of a Passat 1.8T 2001 0280 160 575. This is a bosch number I think the other number is a Audi part number, it doesn't start with the correct numbers to be a bosch part.

    But why would you want to change the fpr? do you have a long or transverse engine?

    I don't think the FPR gives any HP gains, but from what I understand, the added pressure helps to insure your injectors (esp on modded cars) get sufficient fuel at high revs. I have to call Oettinger today, so I'll try to remember to ask.
