    I was thinking about revo? I've heard some good reviews although I have also heard your more likely to bend the con rods?

    I did a 300 mile round trip to Bill @ Badger5 for my remap and have no regrets whatsoever, one of the nicest blokes you'll ever meet and the car gained more power than expected, win win situation, highly recommended.

    Absolute rubbish I'm afraid.

    Bill will make a monster out of your leon! although I'm sure he'll recommend uprated rods if you choose to go above 270bhp.

    Yep they do REVO and their own maps.
    If you not had it done by April 7th pop down, we are having a rolling road and it's a good opportunity to have a look around.

    I'll be choosing either Bill@Badger or Nick@R-T.e.c.h for my map at the end of March.

    Not sure who to go with as they both have great reps.


    Going AMD tomorrow morning to have some other work carried out though as they are localish.








    P.s why does Nicks company name get hashed out when you type it?

    Revo used to have a reputation for bending rods years ago, they've refined the maps since then. I got Revo stage 1 linear throttle map about a year ago, got a few other mods as well and my car made 286bhp and 282lb/ft of torque. It's a nice smooth torque and boost curve too, the initial boost spike is fairly low and it holds really well up to the redline.

    money has been abit tight so i still havent managed to get the car remapped! should hopefully be booked in for around june time.

    ive been reading round and im a bit worried about running around the 280 - 300 bhp mark on the standard rods and i dont really want to change them. (car is ready for stage 2 map) ive read it all depends on how good the map is. AMD will be mapping mine. has anyone had any problems with stage 2 amd map on standard rods?

    thanks :)
