WOW!!!! is all I have to say. It is just amazing how much power can be gained from plugging something in and mashing some buttons. The power is insane. The stock tires will have to be repalced very soon at this rate. The torque is crazy, and the turbo squeel is just sweet! The power is readilly available at any speed. Just press the pedal and the car is gone. I am completely suprised by this huge gain.

I know it has been posted but what is the est price out there? also what are thadvertised performance gains? I also understand that you can quickly check the program, return to factory settings and reload the software w/ updates from BSR?

Takes 5-10 minutes. If your car is stock and you plug in the PPC, it will either say "TUNE CAR?" or "READ CAR?". When you get the read car message then it means the PPC unit did a system check and something did not match up. So let it read and upload the car info to BSR. <p>If your car is tuned already with the PPC, when you plug it in it will say something like "Return to Original?"<p>BSR does not do custom tune. They only have 2 programming for the S40/V50 T5 right now: Stage 1 and Stage 3.<p>I'm happy with it. I'm so used to it, I can't stand driving stock anymore. Keep in mind besides upping the HP, the throttle is also remapped to be more senstive. That's why it feels quicker. So pressing 25% is something like pressing %50 before. <BR><BR>

<A HREF="http://nashranch.com/s40%20dyno%20run.jpg" TARGET="_blank">http://nashranch.com/s40%20dyno%20run.jpg</A><p>236 whp and 272 ft-lbs to the wheels actual as measured with no fudge factors, that is 369 Nm to the wheels. Note that full crazy torque is reached from off idle at 2500 RPM hence the tire smoke. Note the second line is with the exhaust open after the Cat.<p>John's stock dyno run<p><A HREF="http://nashranch.com/johnsdynorun.bmp" TARGET="_blank">http://nashranch.com/johnsdynorun.bmp</A><p>

Re: (tayk47)

Also, 2006S40T5, are you using 91 or 93 octane gas? Unfortunately, near me in San Jose hard to find 93 (not sure if it's impossible - I have not looked too hard). BSR told me in an e-mail exchange that their remap is geared for 93. 91 will work, but not as well.<p>Bassman<br>

Re: (bassman)

Bassman,<p>I have been wondering the same thing. 93 octane in Colorado seems to not exist. Maybe I have just not been to the right places. Are any of the chip upgrades geared for 91. I would really like to do a full kit. But, I don't think anyone has a full stage 3 kit programmed for 91 octane.

Re: (Beowulf)

IMO, can't really tell but MPG goes up 5% if you don't use the power.<p>not only performance numbers are up, but everyday manners are much improved.<p>91 octane at altitude is not too bad. The engine, even turbo will be injesting less air, and in general the air will be colder meaning less chance of detonation. IMO 91 under conditions in Colorado, will perform better then 93 in Texas at 110 degrees and heat soak. In Texas case, the air is going to be hot, and the intercooler is going to overloaded.

In other words, the AKI 91 gasoline that you purchase in Denver is probably closer to AKI 89. The 93 AKI that you get along the Texas coast is truly 93 AKI.<p>Ambient temperatures play a huge role:<p>a. air density;<br>b. in an engine's propensity to ping; and<br>c. intercooler efficiency.<p>All of this has a huge impact on spark timing and overall engine performance. In many cases, more of an impact than a few points of octane.
