I'm close to making the decision to send my 2001 XC ECU in for an upgrade. (want to get a little closer to those T5 factory stats)

As far as I can tell, no other XC customers have taken the leap yet. Anyone out there?

What are folks opinions on SAM vs. Rica vs. SCT? They have all been responsive so far on email, and are priced about the same so I'm having trouble deciding.

Thanks!

InDy,

Thanks for the suggestion. Yep, I'd like to consider them (I even live in Portland, OR), but they don't have anything for the New V70 let alone the XC.

When I asked PES about a chip for the 2001 XC they replied:

"It may be a while. The 2001 cars have special anti-tamper code put in by
Bosch. Volvo
doesn't like chips much. We will find the way around it though. We always do
:> )"

It's been about two months.

The people I know of right now doing chips for US cars are IPD/TME, Wetterauer and Garrett. We have an IPD unit coming for Project 854R. PES does the Garrett chip and I think Eastern Aerospace does the Wett.
