Please PM an Administrator for clarification or permission BEFORE starting a thread or listing a business in your signature. Audits are randomly done and bans and citations will be given to violators of this rule. Each citation is reviewed on a case-by-case basis by the site administrators and moderators.

    Violating vendors of the rules below may receive a forum ban.

    The technical threads have become much more argumentative lately. Although this forum is relatively new, members have approached me regarding the direction some threads seem to head. As usual, posts will be reviewed on a case by case basis.

    When a thread involves a discussion regarding a particular product or company that you may not be in support of, you are expected to post responsibly/maturely if you choose to comment in such a thread. Failure to do so and you will be subject to infraction and/or ban.

    In regards to the ban: The initial ban might be for two weeks, followed by a chance to come back to the forums with a better attitude. If you choose not to change the intent of your post, then you will be permanently banned.
    Simple as that.

    Take care and enjoy the forum.

Stock plugs and gap are fine, don't close the gap unless you are having issues with misfires at peak boost.

You can go to a 1 step colder iridium, we did in testing but not every car seems to need them.

I have a question, I don't know if its been covered

on the FSI/mk5 platform, you can adjust boost, timing, and fuel. how come this option isn't available for TSI/MK6?

what should the k04 file on 93 octane file be boosting?

Put the factory DV in and log boost with VCDS. You have a leak some where in the system.
Thanks Jeff, that's what I'm going to do. I'm already running a factory DV, but I haven't had a chance to run logs yet. I will report back when I figure out what's going on.

Just got Stage 1 the other day when I had to put a brand new engine in my 2010. looking forward to stretching its legs once I get through the engine break in period.

Does a stage 2 CBFA vehicle still retain the cold start feature?

Apparently this is for better emissions as the catalytic converter is not up to operating temperature. So I'm wondering since a downpipe is required for stage 2 and most aftermarket cats are in the second downstream location if the cold startup feature would still serve a function? Also the CEL you would receive from a cat inefficiency is disabled on a stage 2 tune.

Jeff,
Any reports of Revo's tune causing misfires at WOT at high Rpms (5k+) when the temperate is cold (45F or colder). Mine appears to be doing this along with someone else with a Revo stage 2 tune.

Have you logged the car, or are there any codes?

I know logging the car would be ideal but I don't have access to doing so at this moment. I might be able to do it after xmas. I am not throwing any sort of hard CEL.

Below is a link to my thread I posted on here and it contains a link to a video of the problem:

http://www.golfmk6.com/forums/showthread.php?t=108750

I replaced my spark plugs 7k miles ago along with the fuel filter. Since then I have gapped the plugs to .028 and have installed a new battery with only a couple hundred miles on it.

I have red top coilpacks that have less than 7k miles on them as well.

I've also tighten all the clamps from the air intake all the way through to the throttle body and checked the PCV hoses as well.

This only seems to happen when it's cold outside (below 45F). In the 50's + these misfires go away.

I am Revo stage 2 with mods in my sig.

Just wondering if this is a known issue with Revo's tunes.

Had the same symptoms. Did a carbon cleaning and went away.


Appears to be the first signs of carbon buildup. Thought carbon buildup would only cause misfires from cold starts and such.

Drove the car into work today while keeping the revs high (right around 4K rpms) then got on it for a 3rd gear pull as I got close to work and no misfires. Imagine that. Guess I should start saving for a carbon cleaning

Without checking for DTCs and logging the car, it's hard to say what is going on.

Please have the car properly logged and send the file to support@revotechnik.com so we can assist.

I am stage 2 as well and am getting an intermittent misfire or overboost at what I am assuming low temperatures as well. I'm in SoCal and am not an aggressive driver so I don't experience it often. Feels like almost hitting the rev limiter. It looses all power momentarily, falls on its face, loud bang in exhaust, then shifts(DSG) and keeps going at WOT.

I changed plugs to the NGK PFR7S8EG and installed R8 coil packs just before going stage 2. I'm at 56,000 mi and it may be the first sound of carbon build up as my mileage seems way down and I can no longer hit the 31mpg on the highway like I used to.

Can anyone point me to what parameters to log when looking to diagnose this. Luckily I invested in a Micro-CAN.

Yeah, get giac or UM instead

^^ I see that UM is united Motorsport.. Which I found out that my local VW dealer offers.. I was mistaken they offer Tunes from HPA, APR and UM not GIAC.. I'm still waiting for a response from the REVO dealer as to why a tune file isn't available for my car.. Annoyed
