I am new to Volvo and this format. I also have an Audi and post regularly on that site. Who besides IPD makes performance chips? I have a 00 XC SE and want to investigate up grading the chip or exaust.
There is a company called Rica that makes chips for Volvos. I dont know if they have any 2000 model chips though. And the best one of all that I would go with is SCT. Scandanavian Car Tuning. WWW.Volvo-Tuning.com I think that they are on the same level as IPD if not higher. And if you have a C70, SCT is the place you have to check out.
Yeah they ship to america. The exchange rate is like $1 U.S = 8-10 Krona its somewhere in that range. I have heard only good things about SCT. They have been around long and being located in Sweeden they have better access to Volvos than IPD does therefore I believe they know what they are doing just as much as IPD does if not more than them.
Thanks... I'll keep plugging away at them. They haven't been responding to my emails yet. Then again, I'm not in too much of a rush to get a chip... just doing the research now. The other car is getting priority on mods at this point. Exhaust goes on tomorrow and chip will come in a month or two for it (Audi TT Roadster).
Check out www.awe-tuning.com/ . Despite the fact that they do not as of yet offer chip tuning on their site I know from speaking to Todd Saeger that they (Garrett Lim) are producing chips for Volvo products.
