A bird whispered to me that polestar will release their upgrade to the 285hp T6 engine in 2-3 weeks time now.

315hp and 480nm, i can't wait :)

I heard a rumor (at Volvo's US HQ) that they are working on offerings for older P2 models, so I wouldn't be surprised if this is true.

I just did the polestar upgrade on my 2010 D5 and the 10% extra power and torque is definately noticeable and worth the money.

Regards,

Michael

480nm at 2750rpm isn't bad. The Polestar T6 MY09-10 is even better than the MY11-13 T6 engine with polestar untill 5000rpm where the new one beats the old one. Not bad at all-

I just called my dealer and they're not yet aware of the upgrade for the 285hp T6. A few weeks more...at least in the US.

Yes - I did see it on the Polestar website and the numbers look nice! The dealer indicated they typically receive a bulletin when the software package is ready to download through VIDA.

will the tunes be available for the older (2007-2010) EUCD S80 T6 ? They aren't via Volvo for the current S80 T6.
It's the same engine so yes. It's availible on polestars website.

for those with my09-10 looking to add polestar, do you think this is a relatively big investment in the vehicle? i would love to keep mine forever and if thats the case i would think about adding the polestar treatment. my xc has 66000 miles and im wondering if it is a good idea. any thoughts?

I am seriously considering this software upgrade since I own my XC60 and think it would be a great addition to increase versatility and safety. However, what is keeping me from doing this yet, is the software of the gearbox. Will this be updated as well? Quicker gear changes and adding sport mode when you put the automatic in GearTronic (+ / - Manual mode)? I hope it does, as currently it is rather slow in shifting it's gears (when comparing to the S60T6).
