Guys here is a deal for you…

Matt (Black A4) showed me an ad in European Car Mag. for a company that does tuning to ECU chips for Audi & Volkswagens.  The have a deal where you can have them temporarily tune the ECU (it lasts 5 hours) to see if you like the effect.  The test is FREE.  They are so confident that you will like the product that you will then pay for the permanent change.  The tuner is Revotechnik.  Website http://www.revotechnik.com.

The local distributor is Avalon Motor Sports in Centenial.  The Website is http://www.avalonmotorsports.com

I called to see about the availability for the B5 and B5.5.  They have some available – depending on the model ECU you have and the transmission.  Unfortunately for me :evil:  they do not have the newest ECU programming done, but it should be done in January.

If you are thinking about a chip, maybe give this a try and see if it is all they claim it to be. :wink:

Revo chip tuning has received a lot of hype this summer.  Avalonw as at a few shows and at DATR they were offering to tune some cars there.

I know they have some A4s running on the Revo setup, but I don't know if any Passats doing it yet.

I do think it is worth checking out.  There are more and more ODBII tuning options showing up in the market.

I wonder if they tune to your car's specific mods. Like having a FMIC and larger injectors or a K04. Or is this just them selling their own version of software for your car. What do you mean "5 hours of tuning?"

no they do not adjust it to your cars mods.... REVO is a carbon copy of the APR software, but revo flashes it into you ecu... with the 5-hr trial, the flash only works for 5hrs of driving/ideling time, then the stock program takes over.

APR is sueing REVO over their software, said it was stolen.  I believe REVO also has higher boost, I hear up to 1.4 bar, which is too much in my opinion.

APR does this now as well.  They offer a 12 hour drive test, but you pay 1/2 hour of labor, about $47.  I am thinking of doing it, but who knows, I am poor.

I remember hearing about this at both Dubs Along the Rockies and at Dubs on the Green last summer, but I don't know of anyone that has tried it yet.

Interesting about APR suing them though...

Zev at Avalon does, in fact, pimp this software and it is not tuned for other mods.  Now THAT would be nice to have in the area, but I can see that costing a good bit more until the price of technology and dyno'ing comes down.

I am sure I am not getitng the most out of my mods, but what can you do without owning your own shop or having some bling levels of cash?

UPDATE -

Just got off the phone with Zev - they will have the software on Monday and I am going to get the ECU falshed and give'r a test run.  As soon as I finish it up I will give you all a review and let you know what I think.

BTW - Zev is going to be fetured in EuroTuner later this summer with his Re-Rebuilt S4.  He is going to be out in CA about the same time as the Charity Auto Show, so hopefully he will stick around.  I offered him a ride back in the Kraut-sled, so who know's I might get a free driving lesson too. 8)

Yeah, I've ridden with him around the track a few laps.  His car is fast as hell, but it takes someone with a lot of experience to get the most out of it.  The limits are just so damn high.
