Hi<p>They said at the service that they are doing a software update to my car among the other repairs. I have the BRS PPC chip so after I get my car back do I need to load the new program from my car and send it to BSR or just tune it again?<p>cheers <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

It is very likely that you will receive the READ CAR message and need to upload you program to BSR for modification. I had to do this after a recent visit to the dealer.

Re: BSR PPC update after service (gg)

You should have revert it back to stock before you brought it back in. Most likely you'll get the Read Car message jclaib stated.

The car doesn't suffer when you change tuning programs like that? What's that message for?<br>Another question about the bsr ppc...do you have to send them your ECU or do they just ship you the little thing? <br>Are you guys happy with it? Is it worthy?

Re: (gg)

When you get your car back, program the car like you usually do. BSR does a few checks to make sure it can program the car. If it can't or it is unsure, you'll get the READ CAR message. You let it read then upload the results to BSR. BSR will send you a new programming. Then you try to program your ECU again. Repeat the steps as needed.<p>Imtheweezel,<br>You can search this forum for title search "BSR" and you'll get quite a few results. But no you don't have to send in your ECU to them. They send you a device which you plug into your OBD II port to program the ECU. So there is no downtime.<br>

Re: (volvoNB)

simple you come to the board same what a POS the Volvo is cause your chipped auto Volvo busted while drifting, and the next thing ya know your stock volvo is at the dealership being fixed. Your stupidity cost Volvo money and makes it just that much harder for people with real problems to get Volvo to fix them. <p>Now to your post if you did read the really really really easy manual, it clearly tells you what to do if you get a "read car".

Oldman, I read your initial thread (not completely, I'm studying for exams) about the BSR chip and how you were upset with it. <br>Would you say that it is a worth upgrade...some of the other people seem to feel a big difference and they are happy with it.<br>I'm asking because I'm looking to buying one soon. Another thing, how long should I wait from the moment I get the car to chip it? Is there any rules?

Re: (Imtheweezel)

I think the chip is worth it, I have since gone to a stage III, my last post(s) two threads stated that hey this is a low pressure turbo, so expect big performance changes from 110 degree Texas summers to 20 degree winters. In some ways I feel that Volvo should have given me chipped HP stock, manual owners may suffer from a weak clutch.

Re: (Imtheweezel)

my clutch was $1000 for a spec III+ and I changed it myself, lots of stuff has to come out but nothing that was a problem. Expect a shop to charge $600 to $1000 for the labor.

I think I might wait a little bit for the clutch. I'm not very mechanic and I'm afraid I'll mess something up. <br>I think I'll start with the BSR ppc hopefully next month. Should I wait a couple of hundred miles before I get it. I currently have 400 miles. One of my friends told me to take it easy also when I first get the chip...any thoughts?<br>Thanks again oldman, you always prove to be very helpful!
