Revo vs APR

I am booking a stage 1 map this week and stuck between revo and Apr

Not knocking revo as they did a wicked job on my K1
But am thinking Apr is more advanced for the mk6 golf r and offering me a little more power then revo

Looking for suggestions and input for runners and non runners of either software
All advise appreciated

search around on here for info, has been discussed approx 90 billion times.

Cliff notes:
APR: Notoriously reliable but with a tinge less power
REVO: Balls to the wall power, maybe less reliable but the jury is out on this.

Choose whichever is closer so if you have problems you can speak with/visit your local dealer.

ibfl.

Both are good, ultimately pick whichever has the closest/most representation in your area. Differences are negligible if you have to drive 250mi for support each time.

You probably wouldn't notice a difference between the two. Especially since you'll probably never drive another tuned GTI besides yours. No matter what, you're gonna be happy with a tune. Both are good companies with beautiful shops. Get whatever is on sale and whatever is closest. That goes for Unitronic and GIAC as well.

Typical. Tuner vs tuner threads in the Golf R forum -- all GTI/EA888 guys respond, no EA113 guys.

I have had both maps on my Golf R.

I decided to go with REVO initial done to the fact they done a great job on my Mk6 GTI with 299bhp and 360 lb/ft.

Stage 2+ REVO on my R felt great due to the quickest car I have owned to date so had nothing to compare with. But since APR came out with their new update v3 map and all the great reviews I was hearing I decided to jump ship! Let's just say I have never looked back!

Results: ( both runs back to back on same dyno same day etc

Orange REVO pink and yellow APR





One happy customer

Your brakes are filthy. Are those stock? Pretty sure you convinced me to paint my calipers yellow.
