Hy<br>You must add either custom chip, custom remap, unichip or megasquirt.<br>...This must be done by a pro thought.

hi there if you haven't already put some thought into it you must weigh up the pro's and cons to this idea' are you going to see any real benefits from doing this if so what are they is it going to compromise any of the other components life span, if not go for a custom chip or remap like the other guy said if the job is done correctly you will see better fuel consumption a more lively throttle response and an alround more responsive feel to it <br>good luck<br>Andy

Re: Volvo 440 (new swede)

I know an interesting project with a turbo added to this B20f engine but i'm not sure how he did this... there are only a few photos posted.<br>...Maybe with some parts adapted from the 1.7turbo engine??? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0">

Thanks people, though trying to find someone locally (Adelaide Australia) who will tweak a volvo seems another story. I'm loving driving this little beasty after years in a 245, light, torque usable from 1500 rpm and i can tell she wants to rev harder. This one lady owner done 220 000 kilometers and still climbs a steep hill in 5'th. <p>Unfortunately only one model came out over here. After extensive sourcing i finally have all new belts and other parts at more then half what i paid for the car its self. Andy i can see where your coming from but something tells me in another 5 years i wont be able to get parts over here so i figure i may as well get as much fun as i can out of it. When i tried to source the 600 mm serpentine belt for the alternator i had to trim a 4 rib back to 3, not one in the country. <p>So now ill look into unichip and megasquirt, and cast my net further for a pro.<p>Thanks again all
