One question though ... the 2011 XC60 T60 has the TF80-SC 6-speed transmission. What is the torque limit on the 'box? What is the iPD tune expected to do to the reliability and life expectancy of the transmission?

What an archaic process to install a tune :( .. A few years ago I installed a tune from Autotech - procured via a group buy through Elevate - on my XC70 and it came with an "ECMTUNE" OBD-II interface and software to connect this to a laptop. The first step was to connect the program to the OBD-II port via this interface and extract a number of operating parameters for my specific car, which were e-mailed to Autotech. The actual tune was then customized for my vehicle and e-mailed to me. After loading the file on the ECMTUNE database, it was a simple process of connecting the laptop to the OBD-II port again, and update the ECM. This took no more than a few minutes ... and it made a backup of the standard ECM software as well, if for whatever reason one needed to restore it.

Zero downtime ...
I must say I agree. I'm not keen on taking out my ECU and mailing it.

Hilton tuning is another option.

Just checking in after a month of driving, it's still amazing to me. Car is such a blast to drive now.
- Yes, premium fuel is a must now but is recommended by Volvo from the factory.
- Unsure of the transmission question but from what I know of the iPd tunes, they are fairly conservative to maintain reliability. I have no concerns about reliability.

Just curious if you have any other mods, intake or turbo inlet. I am about to start on some fun with my son (project car that is still a partial daily driver). Tune was going to be after snabb intake (and suspension upgrades, im about due 65k miles on '15 t6)

If you are interested, I can do a complete breakdown for you on the T6 motor, and what mods to begin with as I have completely stripped mine down and rebuilt it. My XC60 is my project/race car, and I know the in and outs of the P3 platform.
