So, how much is this "damaged" IC gonna cost you? As much as I'm used to doing all these 'custom' fabrication job, I'm sick and tired of this game. I just ordered the IC upgrade from Autotech through Carlos. Just try to make my life a lot easier. Custom FMIC might just give me that a little bit more HP, but with the effort and $$$...I'll just go for bolt-on this time around.

Wow, that's huge. Keep us informed on that. That's great, not just because it's huge, but it's also a Volvo part. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif">
