Re: Where can I get the BSR PPC? (S40FUN)

<A HREF="http://www.partsforvolvosonline.com/default.php?cPath=28_270_471" TARGET="_blank">http://www.partsforvolvosonlin...0_471</A><p>Just a heads up. The price shown includes VAT (Value Added Tax). If you live outside of the UK, they will deduct it (17%). Click on the question mark for explaination. This is where I bought mine.<p>Also from <A HREF="http://www.eurosporttuning.ca/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=PPC-Volvo&Category_Code=VL-S40-V50-en" TARGET="_blank">EuroSport</A>. If you want something closer to home.<p>

Do you know when the IPD softloader will be available? Also isn't Eurosport Canadian? If so, do we have to pay duties to get it here?

i almost wonder if i could work with some people i know over at SCT ( <A HREF="http://www.sctflash.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.sctflash.com</A>/ ), send them my stock values and see what they can come up with. i know they make some of the best tunes for powerstrokes, and i have a friend who runs an SCT tune on his fox box that runs 9s (now rebuilding for 8s)

But that's for the R. I'm not sure if they are even developing one for the S40/V50. The ECU is different though, the S60/R uses ME7, while our cars use ME9. A while back PowerChips promised a softloader for our cars, but never delivered. Well, none that I'm aware of. <p>Eurosport is in Canada, and no we don't pay duties. Could be partly included in shipping. I bought my catback exhaust there for $68 shipping. Doesn't sound unreasonable considering how big and heavy that thing was (50-60lbs).

Maybe security is even tighter.<br>

Re: (volvoNB)

hmm didn't think about that. what makes the wait worse is that I leave for school in the morning so I will have to wait even longer to get it after it arrives at my house <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">
