    Question UK based ECU tuners for V10 R8

    Any recommendations for tuners near Kent, which brand to go with, and what gains to expect without aftermarket exhaust?

    Speak to Rob Young at DMS Automotive. He has done about 5 of my cars over the years. I had my V10 R8 done two weeks ago. Brilliant. Great gains in mid range and at the top she goes mad. No loss of smoothness elsewhere. DMSautomotive is website. Highly recommended.

    Consider this too.

    If you are an enthusiast you could get your own personal tuning kit from them. With REVO your can change ECU settings on the go. I'm happy with the ability to optimize the ECU further. Download their user manual which will give you a better understanding on the subject of ECU optimization.

    Is the SPS version available for the R8 where the user can change maps and antitheft function themselves?

    Yes ... the 9 settings on the SPS include, STOCK, PERF A, PERF B,, PERF C, ANTI THEFT ON/OFF. It takes about 5sec to load the program change into ECU. That's the easy part .

    You will need a VAG-COM if you want to work your own ECU values, otherwise you can work with REVO as they are in the UK. SPS is not required unless you need the stock and anti-thief setting, and/or work your own ECU values.

    Suggest you download the user manual.

    Do evaluate all the other ECU tuning options, but if you need additional realtime experience & knowledge on REVO tuning & the use of the SPS, PM me in advance if you want to meet-up.
