In my quest to maximize power for my XC90 I have been contacting Heico. I was just informed that they now offer a FMIC (Front Mount Inter Cooler) upgrade for our vehicles! Please see link below for details.

https://www.heicosportiv.de/en/models/current-models/xc90/engine-technology/intercooler/produktdetail/4763

I was also able to verify that they have tested their engine tuning module with a Polestar equipped T6 XC90 and that it works! They are able to support up to 360HP similar to what the Polestar S60 does with our engine. The mid-range power curve is also improved from what they told me. Makes me consider getting a baseline dyno run and then adding these parts to see what we get. :cool:

George, can you get this through Viva Performance as a Heico dealer? Any Swedespeed discount? ;)

Usually, these sorts of aftermarket modifications, especially tunes, do not bode well for OEM warranties or extended warranties. Or is Volvo different?

In the United States, they cannot void your warranty, without proving that the parts caused the damage.

So if you install this IC, and then have a problem with something in the transmission, you're still fine.

Warranty is impacted when the modification causes the issue per the Magnusson/Moss warranty act.

I am not concerned on that for my purposes. I also highly doubt an inter cooler would cause an issue. It’s a pretty basic product.

Heico is also a reputable company from what I have heard, I believe they are even supported by Volvo in Germany like Dinan is for BMW here.

It is already available on the vivaperformance website if I remember correctly. I was browsing through yesterday and remember seeing it.

They did tell you that their tune added to P*T6 produces 360Hp??
This is with or without their ic???

This was with the intercooler and tune... the good news is that they added power in conjunction with the Polestar tune. :)

Beautiful craftsmanship! Those TIG welds look great. Looks to be a healthy inch thicker than the stocker.

I remember when I used to build cool stuff out of aluminum for cars (see attachment):

What would be the cost to tune up to 360HP?
I saw the inter-cooler price
What about the Other tune up cost ?

You can check the Viva Performance website, they should have the Heico Engine Tune module listed there...

George, do you offer a Swedespeed discount for members?
