We could use a collaboration tool to organize this information. At the very least/basic, a shared Google spreadsheet, with revision control. I'd be the admin and add users based on their history here, or reputation elsewhere. Everyone on this thread, for starters.

Or I could "gate" it more heavily, with just a handful to users who select what gets added from a larger pool of eligible information. I'll edit and summarize, and post updates.
Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.

Greetings. I'm a long time Volvo owner but I'm new to mods and custom tunes and am having trouble finding definitive info on the subject.

It'd be cool if your initiative became a thing and I'm interested in learning more and helping however I can.

I believe i have xdf and bin files for these before they got removed and i am interested to change my Fenix 5.2 to M4.4 which i have here on bench just for fun and learning experience.

This original creators work needs be issued what they/he owns and respect that. I can kinda feel if he pulled off and trying make money of it but i am not familiar what happened honestly then now.

Did this thread die already lol?
I have a 98 s70 t5m.
Currently tuned by Aaron owner of vast and am very impressed.
Car runs amazing and pulls hard.
I'm running the stock 16t @18psi.
Green injectors (468cc).
Kinugawa wastegate actuator with .5bar (7.5psi) spring.
Snow performance boost cooler with 60/40 water meth mix. (@10psi engage)
8.5mm swedish car parts wires.
Aem x series wideband. (No stock o2)
Silicone pressure hoses.
Ipd tcv.
Viva strut bar.
Powerstop slotted rotors w/ ceramic pads.
Ipd polyurethane torque mount.
Silicone vacuum lines.
Snabb fresh air pipe with spectre 45° elbow and a 2.5" to 3" coupler to 3" ractive cone filter.
Leistung 3" downpipe.
2.5 vband test pipe to magnaflow to 3" fart can.
Have ipd 3 gauge pillar pod (wideband, glowshift boost gauge, soon snow stage 2 progressive controller).
Stage zero was done first ipd tb kit,denso plugs .026, elring gaskets, doorman distributor rotor, etc etc.
Have launch control set at 4400rpm @5psi perfect for street tires.
I'm looking at re-volv r manifold with t3 housing and td05-18g with rb skyline style housing and cbv provision as avoiding bov style setup.
According virtual dyno with tuner pro import data log with 3rd gear flat rd pull it made a jump from 268whp and 340ft lbs to a wmi tune now rated 295whp and 388ft lbs.
I wanna break the 300whp barrier and eat sti's, focus rs, and evo's lol.
I know a lot of unnecessary information to the post.
But although Aaron had been instrumental to this light build I would love ability and knowledge tune myself.
I have the rev6b xdf but is not compatible with current bin I'm assuming it is up to rev7 or + at this point.
Taking a 450 bin and editing boost target is one thing. But getting it to run full lambda regulation with no stock o2 and green injectors is well beyond my means.

New here, ive done some extensive reading about the 4.4 motronic diy tuning. Ive read the wiki idk how many times. I downloaded tuner pro, ive opened my ecu up. Ive done my stage 0 restoration. The part i am hung up on is what interface cable do i buy? I dont want to buy the wrong one. And when i look online there is so many that have the ftdi232rl chip, how do i know its legit? Anyone have a link? Im sure this has been brought up a thousand times already. And i apologize for that. The link on the wiki doesnt work anymore. Or their out of stock at the very least. Its the simplest things that i get hung up on. Thanks for the patience..
