what is the real difference between jabba and revo? i heard alot about them both but to me it seems like they do the same job at different prices and different regions of uk. So i generally thought people remapped their car at whereever was most convienient for them :? :idea:

haha that's true stani

The difference as far as my experience goes is that jabba unless told otherwise do custom maps specially for your car to get the very most out of your setup which means you end up with a very aggressive map pushing higher bhp figures and then tailing off whereas revo is smoother with more consistent power, in a drag race the more aggressive map would be faster but on the roads it might be a different story, saying that though my ihi cupra has been put on a low map for reliability and to create more consistent power, my old ko3s had a more violent kick to it but that really was maxed out (they are both jabba custom mapped)

well running 253 from a ko3s is pretty impressive

i disagree dude...maybe towards the end of my ownership.but i doubt it would have any problems keeping up with my IHI and a 13.68 on the 1/4 mile is IHI times not k03s

Because ive been looking into them and a few of my friends been saying why do i like it so much? i really dont know why, and they keep saying the CTR is better and faster :? ..not for me though 8)

To answer your question there is no alternative go out and buy one now

Or you could go with a proper map and choose Custom-Code ;)

I'm pretty sure Josh was just saying that he prefers CustomCode remaps to Revo or Jabba.
