    The old ones can be chipped on the bench, or they used to be, im not sure if there is a lead out to do them now?

    what was said its not possible to reflash your ecu
    twin chip, physical chip will be required

    lol, of course they can be remapped, it just means the chip has to be desoldered in worse case. They can often still be flashed with some wiring mods.

    MPPS and a wiring mod can make some of these units flashable, but not OBD readable.

    Worst case, it's just a physical chip job

    as said above, Rtech do this all the time, that's where I'd be going for this kind of work on an ME3.X ecu like yours.

    Some companies will tell you it's not possible to map at all though, which simply means, they can't do it but they're not decent enough to tell you that others can.

    I'm near Manchester, so a long way away. You'd have to post it to myself or Nick @ R-Tech, and we can sort you out.

    John,

    No, it won't be Revo. Nick and I both use our own software, so we aren't handicapped to anyone.

    You can have it as aggressive or as mild as you like. Just a K03 on these so your realistically not going to see much over 190.

    well rtech are saying they dont know if they can do it and they would need the car for a couple of days!! rick is saying he can do it:thumbsup: and volkscraft down my neck of the wood are saying that it could be possible to flash it, if not then it will go on the bench and if that doesnt work an ecu swap might be possible??? what a pain in the ass lol

    ok just spoken to Revo and they told me that i can replace my Bosch 06a906018d with a 06a906018r it should work and the new ecu would adapt to the car, also i would have to get my imobilizer realigned with vag-com and then it will be able to take a remap via obd"!! has anyone on here done this before???

    Not a problem doing your ecu at all dude, its just we was not willing to do your ecu remap via the post, you would need to book in to the workshop for a 9am session to have your car checked out and mapped on the dyno. :racer:
