I bought a new V70R here in Melbourne Aus, in Jan 2004. It has now done 35K Km ...I love it. It has the automatic transmission and I guess I am disappointed in the lag on take off and at other sometimes inconvenient moments (often around town).<br>Does anyone know of any chip upgrade or remedy? <br>Thanks<br>Richard

I'm sure you know that your car is limited to 250 or so ft-lbs of torque overall (vs. 295 for the manual transmission) but in first and second gears the car is further limited to about 230 ft-lbs. IPD's ECU re-program will bump you up to over 300 ft-lbs total in ALL gears.<p><A HREF="http://www.ipdusa.com/" TARGET="_blank">http://www.ipdusa.com/</A><p>Note, that it is not a "chip" but an ECU re-program that will require you to remove your ECU and send it to IPD to be re-programmed.<p>Also, you may also be referring to poor neutral re-engagement of your automatic transmission. Sometimes mine does this too - it'll be very abrupt in re-engaging drive when pulling away from a stop (it disengages drive to save on gas and reduce vibrations). Either you have to feather the gas very slowly and you go nowhere, or you hit the gas and it slams home. If you bring it to the dealer, they can re-calibrate this action for you.<p>Good luck and welcome! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
