This is one of our most common tuning setups for cars equipped with the IS38 turbo using the gen 3 2.0L TSI engine. The Golf R and S3 are the most common. 400 PS and 550 Nm of torque give this already quick car super car like acceleration and torque. 0 – 60 in 3.6 seconds is impressive but what is more impressive is how nice the car is to drive, with better than factory drivability you can drive this setup on long journeys and to the shops, the everyday practicality of this type of car and its relatively understated looks make this the ultimate sleeper. We can tailor this package to your exact needs adding and removing components as required.
Revo offer some of the most substantial performance increases on the market. How this power is delivered however is far more important to us, which is why peak figures form part of a much bigger picture and are never the sole focus during the development process. it’s all about the drive, and only Revo offers a perfected balance of power, economy and an exciting drive.
The Revo tuning philosophy ensures that impressive performance benefits are balanced with useable, reliable power delivery that enhances the way your vehicle drives. Development on the road and race track, as well as testing in controlled dyno conditions, gives you a clearer picture of the performance you can expect from Revo ECU Software. Testing in this way plays an important role in ensuring the highest quality products and delivering the driving experience you demand.
Only Revo performance ECU Software maintains factory safety levels and additional driving features, so you can enjoy each mode’s unique characteristics as usual. You can also choose between two pre-set fuel quality modes depending on which fuel you use. If you would like the ability to do this yourself then the Revo SPS Software Switch is also available separately, which can be used to quickly switch fuel modes and access an additional Anti-Theft mode.

GLOBAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME
Only Revo operates a Global Development Programme through its network of over 400 Revo Authorised Dealers worldwide. Access to vehicles on this scale enables the calibration team to fine-tune products before release, testing products in a wide range of climates and conditions including altitude, fuel quality, humidity. This also allows Revo to test how Revo products perform in different driving scenarios and formed a vital part in the development of Performance ECU Software.
Performance testing was carried out on a private track in the UK with an ambient temperature of 17ºC. 2018 VW Golf R with DSG transmission. Revo Rv019 19″ wheels with road tyres, traction control off and 99RON Shell vPower. The average performance times are taken from 5 consecutive runs.
|0-60 mph||100-200 kph|
|Stock (Claimed)||4.9 s||14.2 s|
|Revo Performance Pack||3.6 s||8.8 s|
Performance data are taken from DynaPack hub dyno, and all figures are quoted at the hub. Revo software comparison is between the previous and new version.
- Peak Performance: 360HP / 560NM
- Peak Gains over stock: +75HP/ +189NM
- Max Gains over stock: +109HP @ 4400RPM / +211NM @ 3900RPM
- Peak Gains over previous Stage 2: +10HP/ +35NM
- Max Gains over previous Stage 2: +37HP @ 2800RPM / +93NM @ 2800RPM
COLD START PROTECTION FEATURE
For engine oil to work effectively and lubricate your engine it needs time to warm up. When you first start your car, the cold oil is at its thickest, producing higher oil pressure when pumped around the engine putting extra pressure on oil seals. As the engine temperature increases, so do the oil temperature. This thins the oil, enabling it to run more freely and better lubricate the moving parts of your engine. Cold Start Protection helps protect engine components by limiting turbo boost until the oil temperature increases and reaches optimum operating levels.
- Oil below 70ºC: Boost limited
- Oil above 70ºC: Full boost available
Testing indicated that in high-temperature conditions (rolling road, high ambient temps, and prolonged Vmax use) oil temperatures can climb to an undesirable level. Revo Temperature Protection is an additional safety feature that reduces overall load as the oil temperature hits a set limit. The oil cooler valve opens sooner with Revo Software to ensure earlier cooling of oil. This feature actively monitors exhaust gas temperatures, adapting the requested load (power) to ensure they stay within safe parameters. If EGT’s reach an upper-temperature limit, then power is automatically reduced until the engine returns to a safe operating temperature.
The Revo Exhaust Overrun feature offers an audible crackle that’s more OEM+ than ‘pops and bangs’. The track influenced acoustics are exclusive to Sports Mode and only activated when within safe tolerances. Active during manual gear shifts, throttle lift off during deceleration, whilst extensive development ensures engine safety. Currently only available for vehicles running Performance Pack or Stage 2 software and limited by ECU Identification number. Read more.
Using the Revo SPS Software Switch you can take advantage of the multiple options in your ECU Software. The patented OBD2 interface is the ultimate compliment to Revo performance software, giving you the ability to switch between 3 fuel performance modes and an Anti-Theft mode.
- SPS Position 1 – Stock Mode
- SPS Position 2 – 97ron fuel / Regular torque for manual vehicles with stock clutches
- SPS Position 3 – 98ron+ fuel / Higher torque for DSG or manual vehicles with an uprated clutch.
- SPS Position 4 – Anti Theft
Simply select a program, plug in, wait a few seconds, remove the SPS device and start the car. It’s simple and there’s no fixed switch to install in the vehicle.
TCU Software required for vehicles with the DQ250 DSG6 gearbox. Revo Transmission Control Unit (TCU) Software ensures your gearbox works in harmony with Revo ECU Software to give you access to even more power. Please select the DSG Software | Stage 2 tab at the top of this page for more information.
Revo Software is installed with a built-in Antitheft Mode, which is accessible with the Revo SPS Software Switch. This mode disables throttle response and limits RPM, adding an extra level of security to your pride and joy.
