My mate works for skoda and told me that the Skoda Fabia vRS can be chipped by someone they know from 130bhp to 180bhp. Now this is 50 bhp increase, being a similar car (not a vw tho [:D]) is this possible? as Ive never seen this on the forum or heard of such a chipping increase?

Upsolute can increase my 110bhp GT TDi to 143bhp, which is 33bhp increase? Anyone got any suggestions?

Many Thanks

Greg

Don't forget that a lot of 130PD's seem to put out mid to high 140's standard anyway.... so 50bhp is a bit optimistic.

Can we get some 130PDs to the RR day at JBS on Sunday cos I don't reckon they'll be more than a couple of bhp over the quoted figure in reality. The 180bhp figure is attainable though.

non pd 110 is listed by these two companies as:

jabba re-map : 150bhp and 305 Nm of torque

MrHoot tuning box : 140bhp and 272Nm of torque

aint sure about the revo and upsolute though

Revo on a 110 is around 145bhp

just checked the revo website and it states 130bhp for the 110

I think the figures on the site are always under, I remember last year when the 110 code was released.....Revo posted figures of 145bhp / 225lbft on this forum.

Yeah yeah.

Dastek, who manufacture the most technologically advanced dyno, reckon a std 130pd puts out less than 130bhp. Don't forget that the figure quoted by VW is PS, which is less than BHP.

JBS, Jabba, AMD to mention a few are guilty of inflated power and torque figures. Just look at figures that have come from their equipment, versus more conservative ones from others.

I think that I can be a bit of an authority on this. I have a golf 3 door 130 pd. I have had it revo'd. I also had a rr done before and after the mod. As a standard, the car pushed 153BHP and 236lbs/ft torque. After the mod was carried out, it had 177.5BHP and 302Lbs/ft torque. Just for reference, this was carried out at stealth and the car shifts compared to before the mod was done.

So with regard to the topic, very near 180BHP is attainable, but the car will be pushing well past the quoted figure of 130BHP

Sorry DC but your wrong about JBS. They have a very accurate dyno which regularly shows cars to be almost spot on manufacturers claims. Dub master just cos you've had your car mapped and dyno'd doesn't make you an authority, loads of us have done that but it doesn't mean they dyno is correct. I do appreciate that the one at Stealth is supposed to be ok though.
