Revo started Developing ECU software in 2014 for the GEN3 EA888 engines, and 12 months later started working on the MQB DSG software to match. Our own in-house Audi S3, VW Golf R and Skoda vRS spent countless hours in the hands of the calibration engineers, 2 years later they had combined over 70,000miles of varied driving throughout the UK on road and track.
During the early stages of testing it was established that the cars are capable of very quick launch times once tuned, however, it equally became apparent that the ECU torque strategy needed to be carefully calibrated to help each car achieve optimum performance while keeping factory OEM style drivability and mechanical sympathy for the DSG.
2016 saw the start of the Global Beta test program throughout the Revo Authorised dealer network in Russia, South Africa, Brazil, America, Malaysia, Australia, South Korea, Italy, Germany and Spain to name but a few. This ability to get people driving their cars provided crucial feedback for Revo to begin to get the product to market, safe in the knowledge we have thoroughly tested all aspects of DSG tuning in collaboration with Revo ECU software.
