ABOUT REVO

Welcome to Revo Technik. A world leader in performance software. We are a global company with engineering centres in the UK and USA, Headquarters in Daventry - England, and over 300 authorised dealers worldwide.

Revo Technik high performance ECU tuning software releases the full potential of your car, with software that is fully adjustable to suit your driving style and your car*

Our software products enhance the power, torque, responsiveness and flexibility of your car whilst delivering smooth, reliable and economical performance across the entire rev range. In essence, Pure Driveability.

* Petrol vehicles only, degree of adjustability is dependent on application.

 
PURE drivability and the ULTIMATE performance upgrade

The unique adjustability of Revo Technik software permits the modification of boost, fueling, timing and throttle response. Your cars tuning can be configured to suit a wide variety of conditions; fuel quality, hardware modifications, even your own driving style, just to name a few.

This is an industry first in performance software at this level. Revo Technik works with the OEM vehicle systems and within the factory tolerances and protection mechanisms. All of this happens whilst simultaneously optimising performance for real world conditions. This approach to tuning is applied consistently across our entire product range, and is what sets Revo Technik apart from other manufacturers in the industry.

The Revo Technik software is uploaded to the vehicles’ engine control unit (ECU) via the onboard diagnostics port (OBDII). This method of installation, (flashing), is accomplished without any need for direct access to the ECU itself, and in most cases the entire process, including pre-checks, set up, post-test and handover typically takes less than an hour.

This method of instillation is fast, reliable and eliminates the hazards associated with soldering, since the ECU is not physically modified in any way. Once in place, the software does not interfere with the OEM dealer’s diagnostic capabilities.

 
REVO Technik Performance Software

The Revo Technik R&D team is a pioneer in the industry. Through its ever increasing knowledge of modern engine management systems and new technologies Revo strive to deliver the ultimate performance from every vehicle. With over 100 years of combined experience, Revo Technik has one of the most educated and experienced teams in the automotive tuning field.

Our philosophy is simple. Our investment in tuning development means that our team of engineers and tuners spend months working with every new vehicle in our range. This extensive analysis of the control systems sets us apart and delivers a product that is smoother, more responsive and more powerful.

SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT OVERVIEW 

The team at Revo pride themselves in producing the best software for your vehicle. The Revo team possess over 100 years combined experience in ECU software development, programming and performance car tuning. This depth of knowledge and experience allows our research and development to be conducted in-house. The combination of us using software tools that we have designed and created ourselves, the countless hours in software development and precise engine tuning means that our products are the most up-to-date, ahead of the competition and considered by many to be the most advanced and best tuning software available.

Below is a brief outline of the steps we go through to develop a performance tuning map on a new vehicle or new factory ECU upgrade before we release it to our dealers worldwide:

 
Step 1 – ECU Communication

A test car is obtained or a new factory ECU is purchased. Revo developed software tools are used to create communication protocols. These protocols allow the software engineers to read the ECU and create an ECU specific “profile”, locating maps and giving our in-house tuners access to the required areas with the ECU software.

 
Step 2 – Benchmark vehicle testing

The test car is Dyno’d and road tested in standard form. High speed data acquisition is used to monitor the vehicles sensor outputs and feedback to determine how the engine performs with a “stock” factory ECU.

 
Step 3 – Creation of ECU development programme

All the data acquired from the “stock” vehicle testing is analysed and software limitations identified. A test file, allowing us to change the “stock” ECU setting, is created. The limitations are reviewed, and where necessary tuning tables are modified to maximise performance.

Tuning isn’t as simple as increasing load, boost pressure and timing. To create the most efficient and usable software, the tuning has to be much more in depth. A significant amount of time required to achieve the correct balance to create a more powerful and usable car. For example, if it is identified that a higher boost pressure can be run; then for this target to be achieved it involves our tuners reviewing numerous tables and lines of data, modifying both the directly and indirectly effected areas of the software map to achieve optimum results whilst retaining the ECU’s adaptive nature and safety features. Through this extensive work our tuners create the ultimate performance map. We assure that the modifications can be run safely without the risk of component failure. These improved settings allow the engine and components to work with each other to the best of their abilities but never exceeding their safe limits.

 
Step 4 – Programme Testing

Initial testing is run on the new ECU programme. Combining testing on the public roads and high speed testing at regional testing facilities, allows us to gather data on performance vs. fuel economy. As Revo software is used worldwide we continue the testing on varied fuel quality, from 95 ron to full race fuel.

 
Step 5 – Dyno Testing

Once initial testing and modifications are complete and the software is reaching its full potential on the road, Dyno testing is again carried out. Power, Torque output and delivery are monitored and logged. Any further modifications deemed necessary are carried out and the software is finalised.

 
Step 6 – Building in Adjustability

External factors can dramatically affect the performance of an engine. By adding further programming the software can be enhanced to include switching, building in adjustability, to take into account the external factors and minimise the affects. For example, timing will be adjusted depending on the grade of fuel and/or boost levels can be adjusted depending on the outside air temperature as this affects the air density. Once switching is programmed into the software, performance is again tested and settings optimised for each variation.

 
Step 7 – Lifestyle testing and Completion

Longer term road testing is carried out, monitoring ECU adaptation, real world fuel economy and overall drivability of the car. If approved the software is then installed on a 2nd and a 3rd test vehicle. If all tests are passed and verified then the final product is ready for release.
