The NHTSA.gov site lists technical bulletins for all cars. One is Service Bulletin Number 2830, Bulletin Sequence Number 621, for 2001 Volvo S60, Summary Description: SUBJECT REGARDING NEW ECM SOFTWARE FOR IMPROVED ACCELERATION 0-60 / 0- 100 KM/H. *TT<P>Hmmmmm. . . . . <P>Yannis or Phil, what's the scoop with an ECU software patch reprogram? How much will it cost? I jsut got my recall notice on the key fob/remote to replace the rubber gaskets so the $%^&*#@!! keys won't stick, so I was thinking of doing the ECU upgrade at the same time when I go in. Have you guys heard of this software patch? Is it worth it?

It does make SOME difference but nothing great. The 2002 models are the models where you see a huge difference.<P>Yannis
