Yes, the Revo gets rid of the governer. I had my fat friend in the car as well, so I'm sure I could have squeezed out a few more. I had to call my call my old man and remind him that his E46 M3 is limited to 155 ;D
i got a 6 hour trial of the APR chip today. i am a REVO fan but they didnt have a trial chip out so i got the APR today to see how it is. i wasnt able to really test it yet but tomorrow is a new day and no work >
thats pretty damn awesome. Just curious, i dont know much about the chip, and i have been reading around, but where can i get the revo chip, and will it void my warranty or is there a way to re-flash my car's bios when taking it to a dealership?
of course it invalidates your warrenty : : : just a risk you have to take if your turbo blows up .... VW wont touch it cuase its been boosting above the spec they set out but again .. they have to find out you have it chipped to do that.
It wouldnt invalidate anything except your engine / turbo for example if your cup holder breaks... they can't say it's cause your car is chipped.
But if the faults directly related to the mod... ur up sh*t creak with no paddle.
mines been chipped now for about 8,000 miles ... got it done in march i think no problems.. have decided i need to get better disks and pads tho - but yea i love it. it's more than worth doing.
there are 2 Revo's stages.. stage 1 standard car - just the chip .. stage 2 is a remap of stage one for allowances if you've added say a turbo back , downpipe new back box, induction kit.. and anything else really.
stage 2 - not really an option on a standard GTI but any "stage" is way better than stock!
