Revive delivers performance boost at VW owners club rolling road test day
Friday, October 25, 2019
Engine and turbo cleaning specialist Revive recently held a special testing day for a VW owners club to demonstrate the benefits of doing a regular Revive clean. The company especially wanted to show that Revive can offer a performance and economy boost even on well cared for vehicles.
The VW owners club was able to provide a broad mix of both diesel and petrol vehicles and because they were enthusiast’s cars they were generally maintained to a high standard.
Each vehicle was tested on a Dyno before and after treatment and the results were carefully compared. All of the vehicles tested and treated showed an improvement through the rev ranges. Increases in BHP and torque varied according to how well the engines had been previously maintained, but all showed a performance boost.
For example a Golf GTI 1.8 Turbo was running 137bhp and 152lbft of torque prior to the Revive treatment and this climbed to 145.4bhp and 158.6 lbft of torque after the treatment.
A significant improvement was also found on a VW T5 2.0 TDI. Tested before treatment this gave readings of 162.6 bhp and 226.2 lbft of torque. After treatment that increased to 166.8bhp and 288.1 lbft of torque, giving it a huge increase of 61lbft of torque. The owner said the power increase was very noticeable and also later reported a 15% increase in fuel economy.
Marcus Mead of Revive commented, “All in all the results did us proud as usual and showed once again that the Revive fluid treatment works very well for keeping your engine running correctly, lowering emissions and recovering lost power if used at every service.”
