Caddy 1.6 tdi superchip (bluefin) vs Revo remap...

Post by Daniel1989 » Tue Jun 02, 2015 9:30 pm

What's everyone thoughts on the 2 remaps?

Superchips say they get a extra 47bhp and 74nm

Revo state a lower figure of a extra 24bhp and 30nm

Seems quite a big difference between the 2 or is superchips exaggerating the gains?
Both are the exact same price and same distance away from me.

The superchips gains arent from the max power, its certain points in the rev range. A bit missleading.

Their graphs clearly show it's the increase over original max:

Leaning towards the bluefin myself, my RS was ok when it had a bluefin on and easy to remove for services etc.

My apologies, just noticed the slight difference, my calculator still says an increase of 56nm and 44bhp which is still way above Revo's figures

Seems a bit strange. I'm leaning towards bluefin too now.

I was just going to go with Revo since its a VW tuner and local to me until I thought I would just check out the other local tuners to compare the differences just incase...haha other local tuner is Regal I'm away to check them out too just incase.. Haha

Superchips are VW's main tuner, they did all the caddy race vans!
Some VW dealers trust superchips so much that they remap vehicles with them and sell them with warranty because they are that relaible!

Superchips will do the best remap of all companies i don't know why everyone is so keen on others like revo/pendle

CaddyNation when I was looking last night at regal remaps I also had a look at superchips again and then noticed they have huge part in all the VW racing teams, honestly never knew this.

So that made my decision up they are the most expensive at £330 but I think it will be worth it over regal and Revo remaps
