Car has been Revo'd for a few months now. Today has been the first day I HAD to use the a/c and it was like Kryptonite. I felt like I was driving Miss Daisy! Turned off the a/c on the parkway and no change.
Was the a/c that much of a shock to the car or what???
No CEL..

I'd talk to Revo, and/ or whoever installed it - the A/C shouldn't kick its a**.
My GIAC programmed W8 has no problems running the A/C, and neither did my GIAC chipped V6 4Motion.

same here. My APR 93 chip feels great even with the a/c on. Give it enough throttle and it'll cycle off anyways.

Did you heatsoak the engine? It is easy to do on a chipped 1.8T. Once the temps get into the upper 80's a few hard runs and you will loose almost all power.

Dont believe it was heatsoak. Have used the a/c again and the same thing. I'll be going back to the shop that did the flash, but now I'm thinking about ditching the REVO for GIAC.
Are there really problems with REVO, or just myth?
