Jetta 6 1.4 TSI Revo or Software upgrade

Post by 38 » Tue Jun 20, 2017 2:54 pm

Hi All,

Has anyone here upgraded the software on a Jetta 6 1.4 TSI before ?

I bought one recently en ek wil bietjie krap.

Is this advisable ?

Car has 124 000km on with a FSH.

Look at Hostility's thread, he has a very healthy J14TSI with Software.

Thanks Mars. Do I just search for it in the forced induction discussion?

There are 1001 threads about, "which software for..." or "best software..."
I would suggest looking at other 1.4TSI rides threads and comparing performance gains between them.

At the end of the day, the tune is only as good as the tuner, and the tuner is only as good as the service they supply.
I for one am a raging Revo fan boy. Brand Awareness + International R&D + Great service seals the deal for me.
You really join the Revo family when you visit Mooloo/Jody/Sugen at VAGCafe. Their aftersales is great and REVO is a trusted brand in my oppinion.

All boils down to personal preference and your expectancy. If you want to squuez every last hp out of your motor there are better tunes. If you want something safe with a solid reputation and great customer service. Visit VAGCafe.

Disclaimer: I am not a tuner. I have only ever had one tuned turbo vehicle and that was Revo. I am biased towards great service and value for money. I would hate to be an experiment bunny for someone with a cable at the cost of my motor

Thanks man. Really appreciate your input and I see that Mooloo has a great reputation. Being in Cape Town does make it a bit difficult though but thanks again for your response!

Its a 2012 comfortline(90kw version).

I see that the 115kw motor has a bigger turbo and that the airbox is at a different location in the engine bay.

Nope. Nothing yet. Planning on putting on Sirocco rims next year.

:hi:

Been a long time since I've posted..

Do a TMS DP and Full Exhaust and a Stage 1 Revo File from Shaun Mooloo,

Friend here in Bloem has done it to his 2012 Jetta 6 TSI Highline (118kw) and the car rocks!

For a daily it's an awesome car with the great fuel consumption and awesome performance, been driving it for 2 years now without any problems,

Your average 1.6T cars doesn't keep up all.. and it pulls good in higher gears as well,

Just my 2 c,

Good luck!
