I have a year 2000 1.8t, and i have just found a Revo dealer on my door step, thinking of having the old girl booked in.

Any one with a similar car and been Revo'd?

Value for money?

I'm thinking of this too. I've driven a revo 1.8T and its a totally different car. For the better too. If you have the chance just do it. You'll never regret it :)

Why not go for the Revo 5 hour free trial, then talk to Jabba as your local. Ask them to test drive yours with the Revo and see what they say. Mind you i dunno if you can switch between modified and standard tune with the Jabba programme. I may go for Revo if you can't, so the wife don't find out.[:D]

Being a 2000 model year it could be touch and go to what engine it is... i.e. it could be an AGU which means no REVO trial [:(]

Value for ??? for you would be Upsolute [^] ?305 [^] Upsolute is best for the AGU engine, goto www.ccctech.co.uk and contact Simon Coe and he will come to your house and fit the Upsolute chip.

I also have a 2000 AGU model, now with roughly 110000 Miles on it. Found Revo not to give the figures quoted. But I think that the miles counted against me AND the fact that my turbo's zorst housing was cracked. Have your turbo checked as cracked housings seem to be common.

Cheers

Don't worry about the trial. With all the buzz about Revo i went ahead with the remap and have never regretted it. 201 bhp and 239 torque on the rolling road, 15.5 secs 1/4 mile and thats without any other mods.

Go to Jabba they're on your doorstep! 600 quid to have some one squirt some code off a laptop on your ECU or 475 quid for before and after graph and your car set up on a rolling road! Hmmmmm toughie!

Unfortunately i do not have time to go and spend a morning at jabba, as my company is so busy at the moment, thats what appealed to me about having Revo.

Definately go with the Revo. 20 mins and a laptop and its speed city. Be warned though this much power renders first gear pretty useless and the change to third is quick to, but once in third the car doesn't half go some.

Unfortunately there isn't much difference between revo'ing a 180bhp or 150bhp they end up pretty much the same
