Typical gains of a Performance pack car is 100hp and 125 lb ft over stock, yielding a total of 400hp! This is of course dependent on fuel, these numbers have been achieved using a US equivalent 93 octane fuel. 91 will see slightly lower numbers. Most cars can run a 91 octane / ethanol blend, or 93 octane / ethanol blend and run higher Performance maps as long as their Revo dealer approves the setup via data logging and ensuring the vehicle is equipped with the correct hardware. Some cars will see higher than 400hp!

CALIPERS

Revo lightweight six-pot caliper is a single-piece aluminium Mono-bloc design. This design has been used to maximize rigidity, pedal feel and overall braking performance. The caliper incorporates a progressive six-piston setup to give great brake balance, and high quality seals increasing resilience to road salts and other corrosive elements.
DISCS

We use a two-piece floating disc and hat design to efficiently dissipate heat. The friction surface features crescent groves designed to increase bite and remove debris from the pad surface giving the perfect balance between brake feel and longevity. The discs feature internal cooling vanes that draw air from the center of the disc outward to maximize heat dissipation and minimize heat transfer to the calipers, pads, and brake fluid, which plays an all-important part in providing consistent stopping power for your vehicle.
BRAKE PADS

We supply Revo brake kit with Ferodo DS Performance Pads that offer a consistent pedal feel and fantastic braking performance both from cold and when hot. Combined with low wheel dusting, minimal noise characteristics, and low disc and pad wear rates this is the ideal pad compound for general road and track driving.
BRAKE LINES

Revo brake kit is supplied with stainless lines; consisting of a PTFE inner and stainless steel braided outer to eliminate the spongy feel of original rubber hoses, provide superior resistance to corrosion, and offer consistent braking performance.
BRAKE FLUID

Revo brakes are supplied with Motul Dot 5.1 brake fluid; specifically designed for brakes systems with ABS. This is a long-life synthetic brake fluid with superior boiling point qualities to conventional Dot 3 and 4 spec. fluids.

OVERVIEW
The 18" and 19” cast alloys are lightweight yet exceptionally strong wheels, designed in-house at Revo HQ and manufactured by OE Manufacturer and Motorsport specialist Rimstock making it a truly British product. Utilising the low-pressure casting process used in the production of Rimstock’s tried-and-tested motorsport wheels, we were able to produce a timeless motorsport classic that could perform where it matters most; on the road.
As with all Revo products, the performance was a key factor in our design requirements. With an impressive weight of 21lbs for the 18x8 and 22lbs for the 19x8.5, Revo wheels offer a huge reduction in unsprung mass over a factory wheel. The 10 spoke design not only looks great but is designed to clear your Revo big brake kit and offer more efficient cooling to the brake system than other wheel designs. On top of the performance and aesthetic qualities, Revo wheels also come with full TÜV approval.
With a classic motorsport look featuring an embossed Revo logo and branded center cap to compliment the subtle styling, the wheel is available in a choice of color finishes.

The next generation of Revo IS38ETR Enhanced Turbo offers even more exhilarating performance than before. Revo offers a reliable package capable of over 500HP without the need to upgrade engine internals or DSG clutches. Whilst also focusing on the driveability and feel of the vehicle, on-road or the track.
Only Revo Enhanced Turbos are specifically designed to work in harmony with your vehicle and Revo Software. Engineered to directly replace the stock turbo, the Revo IS38ETR is a high-quality upgrade, precision balanced to motorsport tolerances to improve performance and ensure reliability.
KEY FEATURES
  • Capable of 500HP +
  • Custom designed compressor and turbine wheels
  • 360º thrust bearing kit with custom direct oil-fed pads
  • Precision balanced to motorsport specification
  • Designed in harmony with Revo Software


Revo IS38ETR V2 Turbo Upgrade

DIRECT REPLACEMENT
A direct replacement for the IHI Turbo found on 2.0 TSI EA888 GEN3 engines, the IS38ETR is an enhanced version of the OEM IS38, with increased airflow from the re-profiled housing and larger compressor and turbine wheels. Revo Hardware and Software are the key to achieving this performance and have been developed to work in harmony with the ETR upgrade.
TURBO FEATURES
The high-performance Revo IS38ETR offers a significant upgrade over the stock IS38 whilst maintaining the original fitment and compressor and turbine housings. The compressor and turbine housings have been CNC re-profiled to match the custom-designed larger wheels and stronger shaft. Strength is a key factor to the IS38ETR, a replacement back-plate machined from a single billet piece offers greater resistance to warping, while the increased diameter shaft eliminates the weakness in the OE part.

COMPRESSOR WHEEL
The larger compressor wheel has been machined from a solid billet of aluminium giving a much stronger construction. The new custom design gives the highest level of aero performance, providing superior flow characteristics to achieve the required boost levels with less effect. The lightweight construction of the compressor wheel also ensures low inertia, resulting in increased performance.


TURBINE WHEEL
The precisely engineered turbine wheel has been made with a custom high flow aero blade profile to compliment the aero of the compressor wheel. The result is an extremely high flow aero turbine wheel which increases exhaust gas choke flow limits and reduces backpressure.

HOUSING AND BEARINGS
The bearing housing has also been enlarged and upgraded to make room for a specifically designed 360° thrust bearing system, incorporating a custom 4 oil-fed thrust pad for increased reliability. Precision VSR balanced to levels above the OEM specification, something seen in the motorsport industry. This reduces vibration to the lowest possible level and improves the performance and reliability of the turbocharger.
INTEGRATED RECIRCULATING SYSTEM
The integrated recirculation valve is fundamentally a blow-off valve integrated into the compressor housing. When the throttle valve is closed and the pressure in the inlet drops, the valve opens and air from the discharge side of the compressor is diverted back into the inlet of the compressor. This helps to avoid the compressor going into surge.

In order to guide my driving enthusiasm, I keep oil temp permanently displayed on the dash, so this seems like a good idea.
