All this remapping is a nightmare, so many options, so many different opinions, shame no one (Mag, has actually tested all the different Companies out with the same vehicle to give an indication what you get for your money, best value etc.
I recently had a Revo stage one update,
My 2 main concerns for doing it for me:-
My fuel comsumption has gone up.
Better pull low down revs, 5/6thin being DSG
and it has made a good improvement on those 2 items
It certainly makes a different over the whole of the rev range especially once you hit the boost pulling hard all the way to the top end in 6th as well.
The Revo dealer I used was very good also, explaining what he know, let me watched him carrying out the upgrade etc.
Since I had it done, a problem has occurred, I am fairly certain since the Revo update, when we did it the first time he set the boost one up from recommended, said should be no problem etc. and since it was done, every now again when just cruising along at around 3 k revs in 6th, between 70/80 MPH, i.e. just holding that speed the engine just misses a beat, I am sure it is not a misfire, hard to explain, you can just feel it when just sitting on the throttle, like the boost drops off and straight back on, it is very very quick just once every now again, again like in the old days the A/C kicks in and sucks a little engine power all of a sudden, I have tried it with out the AC on, (well as best as not really knowing if it is never off all the time).
I spoke to the Revo Dealer, and since been back to drop the boost to the recommended setting, (6, was 7), no fault codes either, and although it seems to do it even less now, it is still doing it every now again.
I also tried it with the Cruise Control, (not since boost turned down) but before although I do think when in Cruise control it may have done it a little less, it still did do it.
My next option is to remove the Revo update back to factory and test it again, but somehow I know it will not do it as I did over 1k miles in it before and would have noticed this problem pretty quick as I did after the Revo update.
I am a little fed up of messing around, I am somewhat frustrated, because performance improvement aside it helps with my main 2 issues better low down pull and most of all a defiant fuel consumption improvement, that alone warrents all people to update the ECU.
