Re: FF#11: Tune a Low Pressure Turbo?

Bigger injectors without retuning will make an engine run rich and in a worst case scenario it can wash the cylinders down and potentially cause engine damage. That's not terribly likely but it can happen.

Otherwise larger injectors are fine, with proper tuning!

Re: Fast Friday #9: Making Power w/ Water & Methanol Injecti

Retuning is typically around the timing map for the most part and will generally take no more than 2 hours. Pm me for direct pricing !

Re: FF#24! Auto -> Manual Transmission Conversions Done Righ

That can mean impending trans failure but it can also be caused by worn out valve body or valve solenoids so proper diagnosis by someone who's proficient in that trans would be advisable. As for manual trans, if you keep it AWD then you'd have to source either the M58 or the M66. If you ditch the AW...

Re: Performance Upgrades vs. Engine Longevity

2003 was a big change year for Volvo and some later production cars had dual CVVT so yours would be categorized with the later engines. There's some blur in the lines that separate engines by model year from market to market so bear that in mind as well :)

Re: Tune My Ride #3: 1995 850 Turbo

Southbay, There's certainly a number of different add on's that make a stock 850 better than it was new with original parts.

Re: FF#21! Turbo Upgrades!

We certainly could do that! Granted it's almost non applicable since we don't have 'stage tunes' per se... we fit our tuning to your particular setup so however you have your car setup we can match it. No longer the need to follow a specific path. Granted might be a good idea to touch on what folks ...

Re: Performance Upgrades vs. Engine Longevity

Depends on the transmission, earlier 850/70 trans we're pretty tough upto the early 2000's after that it's hit or miss quite honestly. Good maintenance is key but you make a good point regardless!

Re: Performance Upgrades vs. Engine Longevity

For many folks the answer is yes... it's an easy install and provides a considerable upgrade in power without sacrificing too much low end. Adjust the wastegate and get a matching tune and you'll have a properly quick car!
