boosts his hp and his mpg? I hear those vornado intakes charger can do that for you! Or maybe the turbonator. <p>But in all seriousness there is loads of info on this search some more and you will find a wealth of information. Speedtuning, Upsolute, Ipd/MTE, Rica, and others all make chips. I'd rank them in the listed order from worst to best. Ironically thats also how they are priced from cheapest to most expensive.

Re: (camoner)

The problem is this.<br>Volvo has the new recall/ECU flash that "saves" the ETB for oversimplification<br>ALL 99s thru 01s get this when it goes into a Volvo shop. This will wipe out the IPD flash, making you send it back for another flash.<br>IPD is NOT going to redo theirs as they believe that their flash already has some of this incorperated into their program. So your dad will have to stay away from a dealer period or not use any ECU mod.<br>Since the car IS<B> your fathers</B>, I would get this idea out of your head.<br>You may lose 1 MPG if any. Also, his car will be down for at least 3 days as the ECU must be shipped to OR. No other way around this
