It won't be a map issue. Either you have the revo settings wrong for your car (needs logging), or you have an undiagnosed hardware issue. What are the IATs? In this weather I haven't seen double digits with mine.
Revo settings were provided by my dealer who said the settings are running fine for the car. This is when i had it logged a few months back and he said 'you need an intercooler due to high intake temps'.

I had it logged last week by someone else and they said they were seeing temps as high as 40 and that's with 1 degree cold weather :confused:

I don't get it. Crap is all over the place, noone can give me a solid answer as to what it is. Even if it's the clutch i just want to know it's 100% the issue. Weird though as it doesn't do it all the time! All this has happened after installing the Revo map and stressing me out. I want this off my car and i'll be going somewhere like R-Tech for a map. I wanted this to work out but it's nothing but headache.

I've done this a few times and it's just random. Sometimes it will do it, then straight after i'll try it again and it doesn't do it.

IATs hitting 40 with these temps isn't right. Does IAT sensor report ambient temps when checked first thing in the morning?

By that you mean on the DIS? Yeah it reports fine all the time and i haven't noticed any incorrect temp readings. It said it was -0.5 this morning and i certainly believe that lol

That's the ambient temp, I mean the temp reported by the intake temp sensor, to check its reading correctly.

I ran Revo stage 2 + with standard intercooler during the summer no problem.
As above the car needs logged and if there's nothing obvious then email them to Revo.
On a stage 1 car I'd of thought the settings should be boost 6-7 timing 5 if running vpower or tesco 99 fuel 9
If the settings are correct then I'd suspect a hardware problem
