We're working on putting together a shootout on an S70 T-5 that one of our staffers owns. We have a line on an IPD ECU and are talking to GIAC. Is there anyone else you guys would like to see us include if we do a back to back shootout?<P>George<BR>Swedespeed

So..you mean like a road test btwn two different ECM upgrades? How about asking Matt to bring out his mystery ECU along w/ his other secret upgrades?<P>hehehe..just playing w/ ya, Matt. You have all the right to keep your 'mods' as a secret, I just like to brag and SHARE mine with everyone.

George,<P>Yes, please, the S.A.M. Steffanssen unit. They only charge about $625, but the downside is you have to send them the ECU (to Sweden)<P>They e-mailed me that it should work just fine on the US-spec car.<P>See <A HREF="http://www.samsteffansson.se/samindex.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.samsteffansson.se/samindex.html</A> <P>Oh, drat, you're testing a V70 T5. Is that the same motor as in the S60?<p>[This message has been edited by T5 Dave (edited 12-13-2001).]

I think it is close enough. Basically, we're going to ask that the manufacturers provide us with an ECU modded, so that we can interchange them quickly, then we'll do a dyno session all on the same day and on the same car. If the manufacturers want the ECU back afterward, we can send it back or if they wish, we can have some sort of contest to give it away to one of our readers.<P>Do you have a contact at S.A.M.? Is there anyone I can call over there or email? We're looking at doing this the week between Christmas and New Year's Eve, so I need to get on it ASAP.<P>What other chip manufacturers can you recomend. Kai, is Matt willing to get us an ECU for an S70 T-5 manual of his mystery ECU?

Hehehe....thanks for showing up George. I didn't know you were kinda busy today, thought it'd be fun to drag you out for a quick GTG.<P>I really appreciate for taking the photos on the car. If you want to do a write up and need some info., feel free to drop me a line. As for the ECU, I don't mind lending ECU when you need to do the shootout. Heheh...just put mine under 'unknown custom ECU.' <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">

I realize it's probably too late, but doesn't Upsolute have a program for the chip in that ECU?<P>They are hugely popular with the VW TDI crowd...<P>

I'm sorry, I passed the email along to the staffer handling the shootout and hadn't seen a reply yet.<P>We haven't done the shootout yet and are trying to work in more contenders besides GIAC and IPD. We'd be very interested in including you and will check with Upsolute as well (mentioned above).
