[Audi A3/S3] Getting my S3 Revo'd tomorrow.....


Recommended Posts

my first S3 was done by Revo HQ when they launched the company.

Yes it will be noticable.

You will want better brakes. Those junctions come up a GREAT deal quicker.

Smile, I would imagine it will make you chuckle. Mine was quite lively.

Ive a different car now and different tuner, but the above is still all true. Still puts a huge grin on my face, and if definitely benifitted from the bigger more powerful brakes.

Enjoy. 169144-ok.gif

Not much room for error in that state of tune.

Remember the Turbo in the 2.0T S3 boosts to 1.2 bar standard.

The original S3 standard boost was 0.9 bar and often remapped to around 1.4 - 1.5 bar peak. A significant jump.

the is not much data out there yet on how long term tuned 2.0T's cope with the extra boost and heat, it will be along time before they get the almost cult reliable tunable status of the current 1.8T lumps, thats been going for years in various forms, and described by some as "bomb proof"

I had my S3 remapped at Fontain Motors. Did you have Steve, the pleasent chap with the ginger beard? wink.gif I certainly noticed the difference, but I also found that after about three weeks I needed a new air flow meter. (I know they do break but still)

It's funny you mention the diverter valve as when I mentioned it to them, they said I didn't need one?

I agreee with Paul about the brakes to some extent although I've found that my standard brakes have coped ok in the 3 months it's been done.

How are you finding it....? ECLIPSe.gif

Phil, personally I think this is invaluable if you run a remapped car.

Info from Revo's website on this:

This version utilises the same features as the SPS1 and SPS2 with the added benefit of having variable boost and timing control. This functionality allows the user to adjust the car to varying degrees of performance by changing the boost pressures from the turbo. It also allows the user to use any grade of fuel at any time without the worry of damage to the engine. It also can be adjusted to take

full advantage of race fuel or octane boosters that are typically out of the range of any performance software. All safety mechanisms and routines are left intact to prevent the user from setting the engine to operate outside of the safety limits.

The SPS 3 device allows the user to change the boost and timing of the vehicle. Some people wanted only 1 BAR programs for reliability and economy while others wanted 1.4 BAR for power. This gives the user the ability to select the desired boost level for what ever they are doing, be it a track day or a long trip. The adjustable timing allows the user to maximize power by adding or removing engine ignition timing. Some people like to use octane boosters for track days and this will allow the user to add more timing to fully utilize the added octane. While for the drive back they may want to fill tank with standard grade petrol to save money. This also allows the user to remove timing to provide a smooth and safe performance level with standard grade fuel.

Yes; Steve did mine. Seemed like a good bloke to me.

I replaced the Diverter Valve because the standard one isn't supposed to be very good?

Re: SPS3 - I was thinking of running the following settings. I'm not too bothered about fuel economy and more interested in performance but within the limits of using 97/98 octane petrol. So, if I understand the instructions correctly and from what Revo suggest:

Mode 3 - 9

Mode 4 - 7

Mode 5 - 7

Can anyone comment/advise please.....
