    .....and it's very expensive for a car with a declared remap and go-faster bits.

    Company Car with Re-Map

    Modifications should be declared to your insurance company or your insurance cover could be void IF they found the car was remapped. Standard diagnostics will not detect a Revo remap, but if an insurance company wanted a detailed dump of the ecu they would be able to find the remap code. However...

    Would this mod be legal?

    Apart from the Style Police who would vote a big NO, plod would take a very dim view of these very dangerous and offensive items, let alone the fun the legal eagles would have if you hit anyone with one of these. Your insurance would be void as well, as it would need to be declared and the...

    The 5 hour trial is 5 hours driving time i.e. ignition on, wheels turning. Hope this helps. Not sure what you means Staz about do you have to take it back?

    170 Vs 140 TDI

    Is your 170 a PD engine or the new CR? Sounds like your mate has the Mk6 140CR which is a very good engine.

    2.0 TDI remap - economy and smooth power - where?

    I was getting about the same 55mpg at about 85 (does anyone drive on a motorway at 70?).

    2.0 TDI remap - economy and smooth power - where?

    I've run my A3 for 4 years with a Revo remap (as you would expect as I'm a dealer), 53,000 miles and 50.2mpg overall. Most motorway journeys come out about 55mpg and schlepping up to Norwich on the A140 ('orrible 50mph road) averages around 60-65mpg. When caning it, I get about 45mpg. Hope...

    AMD Technik Group Buy

    40% discount means they will make a loss on Revo remaps after costs, do you want them to go out of business?

    A3 2.0 TDI Flutter valve???

    There's nothing wrong with Scoobies, just one to55er who drives through our village at 50mph sounds like a total cvnt and 20mph over the speed limit. Rant over. The reason why atmospheric dump valves are of no use on VAG turbo engies as VWAddict says is the engine is designed for a diverter...

    A3 2.0 TDI Flutter valve???

    wtf is a flutter valve? If you mean dump valve, like chavtastic Scoobys, no, diesels don't use them nor do any of the current range VAG petrol engines, they use diverter valves.

    dumpvalve on a tdi

    A dumpvalve on a diesel is the stupidest thing in the history of stupid ideas IMHO A dumpvalve on a VAG petrol turbo is also a very stupid idea as they are designed to use a diverter valve. Happy Sunday!
