tuning a p2 v70 2.5t

Post by Theshagginwagon »

Ive been considering tuning my 2004 v70 2.5t for a while now. I am debating on a hilton stage 1 tune or an ipd tune. Both seem pretty reputable but I want to know if anyone else has done anything similar. Looking at stage 1 tunes since i do not have a full catback or downpipe, plus im not sure i want to go past stage 1 yet...

I've done a stage 1 BSR tune on mine. It's a nice upgrade. Same engine characteristics but with a much more pronounced turbo boost once more throttle is used. Also optimises the transmission somewhat to use the extra ton of torque to stay in low revs up hills where previously it would shift back and forth.
