Hello fellow Volvo Enthusiest, seems you people may be able to answer this easily sinse you have much knowledge on the subject.<P>Woundering if there is a performance chip for a B 5252 S 10 valve motor?<BR>I have a 1996 850 GLE, I believe this ten valve is only avaible in Canada, so a Canadian chip company may be the only to program for it. Aside from a K&N filter, no extra horsepower of any kind is under the hood (and that may be an extra 2 hp at best).<BR>Here are the specs:<BR>OUTPUT: 142 hp at 5400 rpm<BR>TORQUE: 152 lbs. at 3600 rpm<BR>2.4 L<BR>10.0:1 compression ratio<P>Not to impressive really. But the funny thing is it will actually pull about a car length in front of a 20 valve motor for a short distance (in my red light confrontations <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> ) . I think it is because it peaks in torque about 1100 rpm sooner. <BR>Is there any hope for this motor?
