Ok guys, I need some help, I'm pretty much done with all the hardware install on the gt28rs elim, so today I drove the ecu to the closest revo dealer, he plugged in the ecu and he said that he didn't have the stage 3 software for my ecu (ch box). He said he's going to try to contact revo to see if they have anything. I know theres a couple people here running revo stage 3 on their 2001, what did you guys do? or what ecu do you have? I need some info on this, i'm a little worried, I don't know any other route to go, and I don't have the money for standalone right now. I'm in this situation because a couple weeks back I went to a different revo dealer they plugged in my car and said they have it, but I heard some bad things about them, about old software and incorrect flashes, the shop i went to today says they have updates every month so they should have most of the released software.

Try Unitronics. Might be what I'm running on a 3071r.

I'm on a major time crunch here so sending the ecu out is my last option, what ecu were you running though?

nope no stg3 software from revo for a 2001. go unitronic, your only option.

but go for genesis 430cc injectors w/adapters

Call up Javad at 034 Motorsports because he had the REVO BT software in his 2001 and he should be able to tell you what dealer he got it from.

Not at all, there have been plenty of posts from people running the Revo BT software on their 2001's and as you can see Javad at 034 was also running it on his car.

sometimes they release files and it takes a while for them to get to the dealers. if there is a released file your dealer should be able to get it.

Actually thats not true, I have been told by more then 1 dealer that REVO now has tuning for ndbw cars too but that might just be for a K03 not for a BT.

I'm guessing he's talking about ex APR employees starting Revo. They apparently were sued by APR saying that their source code was stolen.

I called revo today, they don't have a stage 3 software for the ch ecu. So I called 034 motorsports and they told me to go with Mika, I never wanted to go with Mika, because of all the bad reports from people. However, they said they sell 3-4 mika tunes a month and they've had no complaints, so thats reassuring enough. I would go Unitronics but I don't have any time or money right now, maybe in the future.

have you read the lawsuit? it was regarding the actual process of loading the software onto the vehicle (SPP) rather than the actual source code...

people need to do their research...

It also had to do with property from APR that had nothing to do with tuning at all and yes it was also about the equipment that was actually designed by the person that ended up starting REVO. But as you can see nothing came of it and REVO is still in business.

Not too many b5 people running a stage 3 revo program

Thats because there isn't many 2001's running a Elim kit, but there has been people that have posted about using that BT software.
