Anyone know when upgrades are avaliable for MY02 V70 T5? Looking for their ECU upgrade packages. Also, once the boost psi is upgraded through the tuned ECU, is there like a stock bypass valve in the car or something to protect compressor surge? Because the car is quiet as hell, and engine bay is soooo clean, can't even see shi*t in there. If there is a bypass valve, would it be able to hold the upgraded psi, meaning would it leak under acceleration? According to the info on their website, after the upgrade, the turbo would produce 18psi from stock 10psi, that's a LOT of boost.....

There's always stock bypass valve...unless your car only runs at 3 psi. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif">

Inherited a lot of money from China? Not sure about that, don't exactly have any relative from CHINA...I think you might be referring to Mr. Hai if you are talking about inheritance money and....CHINA.<P>Me no China man. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> Few years ago, I would almost take that as an insult. It's like calling a Pakistani an Indian. <P>As for the PR man for C70 section...hmm...I'd love that, but don't think I'm diplomatic enough. Heheh..here and there you do see me go goo-goo on topics, not exactly a good trait to have for a PR person. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">

Kai,<BR>Hai ah! Good to know you can type Cantonese. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> Good start! Yes, I do have to agree that Rutgers is hard, but one thing I like about it is the professors there seem to have better qualification of being professors comparing with the ones from RIT. You thinking about doing master study?

Kai, <BR>You just have to find out, don't you? <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"> It's the MCIS, but I don't really see big difference between IT and IS, so I just say IT anyway. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"> Will try to stick to the formal name next time. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif">
