View Full Version : Whats the score then ?
Does anybody know the differences between 00, 01 & 02 model beezer cupra's. Revo have different part numbes for each year of cupra. I know there are differences between engine codes, like my 'pain in the arse to tune' AYP block, but what are they ?
(from the Revo website)
6K0 906 032 00>IBIZA CUPRA 1.8T all 499
6K0 906 032AA 01>IBIZA CUPRA 1.8T all 499
6K0 906 032AA 02>IBIZA CUPRA 1.8T all 499
6K0 906 032AB 01> IBIZA CUPRA R all 499
038 906 019DQ 03>NEW IBIZA 130PD 1 499

Cheers edc but what I really wanted to know is why Revo have found it necessary to compile different code for each year of car. Is it that Seat insert year specific code into the ecu's to try and make it harder for tuners by causing them to spend money developing several sets of the same code for different years or are there mechanical differences to account for?
If the engines are the same then surely the same Revo program should work on any car if Seat only produced one ecu program for the beezer, any ideas?
I'm just curious really!
Revo don't produce diff code for each ECU application because this is the only way to do it. VW make the ECUs in such a way to hinder tuners. Each ECU code needs to be 'cracked'.
There are also slight differences in the ecu maps due to changes in specification of the car, new sensors etc. The map for each ecu has to be cracked and then remapped for smoothness, power delivery etc. So the code from one ecu is not necessarily the same as another for what appears to be a similar engine installation.
We'd never try to write an 032AA code to an 0032AB ecu, the differences may mean the car just wouldn't start let alone drive better.
You have to treat every ecu as a new map. It's safer that way.
and not to forget the dreaded emissions legislation which means mods to code also..
