    The Revo B9 A4 Mega Thread

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!


    Hey Audizine!

    We decided to make a B9 A4 Revo Mega Thread since we've been doing some flashes as of late! In this thread we will be compiling data and information regarding Revo's software tune for these 2.0t 252hp engines. (and eventually for the other engines as they come available)


    To start this off, here is the Revo Power Comparison video they shot to demonstrate a Revo tuned B9 A4 avant stage 1 vs S4 on a stock tune.




    As you can see, the 2.0t powered A4 is woken up with just a tune!

    Here is a link to the Revo product page - https://www.onlyrevo.com/product-det...5-/260/stage-1


    Our Stage 1 software upgrade is flashed through the ODB-II port leaving the factory ECU intact and providing impressive peak power gains. Whilst the peak gains are impressive, this doesn't tell the full story; our software has been refined to give you increased torque and power throughout the rev range without compromising on drivability, smoothness or power delivery.

    The increases in torque give immense flexibility in any gear, and the engine revs out to redline much more enthusiastically than stock. The enhanced delivery of power achieved by the Revo software calibrators means that fuel economy remains unaffected, with some customers noting up to a 10% improvement in fuel economy as the engine no longer has to work as hard in each gear; this can vary depending on driving style.


    During testing and development, stock performance was higher than the manufacturer's quoted 252BHP & 370NM
    Peak gains: +47BHP / +65NM
    Max gains: +52BHP @ 6000 RPM / + 84NM @ 2900RPM
    Peak figures seen during development were 333BHP & 450NM


    We recently acquired a B9 A4 to use for testing, (more on this later) but had the chance to run some V-Box logs of the car before and after the stage 1 flash to illustrate the gains. These were shot back to back, within 2 hours time. Both V-Box logs done on the same road, as you can see the road has a slight height change to it. The stock log was done 3.8 meters down hill, while the stage 1 log is nearly level at 0.01 meters.

    We picked up a half second 0-60 with just a tune, no other changes!








    Outside air temp was about 75-80*F on this day, 91 octane fuel used, stock car, stock tires.

    Revo ran 0-60 stock 5.20s and stage 1 4.29s on the equivalent of 93 octane fuel, and outside air temp of around 59*F.



    Stay tuned as we collect more data. We are planning to add Revo hardware to this car as its available, such as intake, intercooler, exhuast, stage 2, and beyond. Hoping to get it out to a 1/4 mile track soon as well, unfortunately Summer is upon us in Southern California, but we will do what we can!

    Revo has a B9 S4 in their development fleet as well. From what we are told, the new ECUs are a whole different animal compared to the other cars. Hope to hear something soon!

    I am sure TCU tuning will be covered, especially as turbo upgrades become available.

    We don't have this engine in the USA, so I am not sure. If you are in Singapore, talk to Julian at MTR and he can check this for you!

    Have you contacted your Revo dealer local to you? Our US files may be different than what you have in Poland.

    Yes, the Polish dealer Revo replied that there was no Stage 2 yet
    I have a car bought in the USA
    that's why I'm asking here if Stage 2 is already developed for this car and engine.

    We can check if you know your engine software id and version. Usually a scan out with VCDS software will show this. PM us for more information.

    Made a quick trip to our local track Fontana Dragway last night for a few stock versus tuned passes in our A4.

    2018 A4 Sedan
    18" S4 wheels
    S4 front brakes
    H&R Lowering springs
    Full interior w/ spare tire
    1/3 tank of 91 Shell V Power
    Revo Stage 1 91 octane file

    All factory hardware including the cover over the intercooler.

    Best time of the night was a 13.544 @ 99.68mph

    Flashed to stock and knocked out a 14.094 @ 95.17mph

    Also ran the Dragy app while we were there, attached a photo from the 13.544 pass to show how close it is. Note it was in KMH and not MPH.












    We plan to get the car back out there on an ethonal blend / race gas, pull the spare, etc and try to crack low 13s on stage 1. This is by no means a fast track, guys on the east coast with 93 fuel are probably going to run low 13s if they haven't already.

    We have the first US kit coming for our A4 I see you are in Canada, perhaps you can inquire to your local Revo dealer to be the first to have it up there? Foam works well, we've used the Revo foam kits for several years now with no issues. Filters should be inspected / cleaned just like a standard maintenance interval calls for (we usually check every 15-20k miles)

    Playing around with the Dragy app;

    Revo Stage 1 on Performance map B (97 ron)
    12 gallons of 91 Shell V Power
    3 Gallons E85
    2018 A4 Sedan
    18" S4 wheels
    S4 front brakes
    H&R Lowering springs
    Full interior w/ spare tire

    12.8@104.24mph!

    Not bad for an otherwise stock car, this is close to what I'd expect most cars on 93 octane to run. Must be nice, since we don't get that in California
