    Edit just read 22 psi toooo much on stock block! Also the AMS will lean out your fuel trims a bit so what them, maf will compensate tough but then you'll get a maf code, really the AMS needs to whole post and pre maf correction redone. I did one once and i felt quite a bit better on/off throttle.
    the block went before i had the re-map done, i had down pipe with 200cell cat, ipd cat back and elevate air management system. (i think this might if been causing it to run lean) the second block was fecked before i even turned the key. the guy that found the issue with the TCV piping, had it out on the road with his diagnostic kit and said everything was running as it should he even called the guy that put the rica re-map on just to confirm the readings. (wish i had a print out)

    I've heard of them going stock. The wideband should have kept it in check but you will get a actual vs commanded variance. The rica maps have odd fuelling normally, just their way.


    Log ignition retard, angle, ps-w, rl_w, pvdkds and te_w

    i think if i kept it totally stock i might of been alright, i had been driving the car for nearly a year trouble free, then i added the items above and thats when the issues started. fingers croseed everything is fine now. the car seems to run reallyt well very smooth power delivery and it idles perfectly. i cant face another hic-up not for a little while anyway....intercooler is the next purchase. then i have to start looking at a bigger turbo i suppose, injectors etc etc.

    I'm not a trader but I feel it's in the interests of the club:

    Want to a clone ECU? Want to sell your bought map that you're not happy with or just want to return to stock not loose your investment? I can offer this Service for ALL p2 cars inc Diesel All done via CAN with no soldering, all you need is original ecu and a Doner. Note I wont copy bought maps to another ECU, not right and will be checked so speak to me first!, if you want to sell your map then this is ideal.

    This is the only thing really worthwhile me doing to help (not free) Shem/Hiltons got ME7/Me9 covered, I'm doing an RS/ST logger/reader and a VAG logger for later cars among a lot of NDA'd stuff.

    The world opened when I went to vag so I'm happy. They get new stuff, I enjoy it, all's good!

    Also the Volvo P3 Pin code stuff is solved as is Ford RS read - can't believe no-one figured that one out.

    Just a friendly update to you guys in this club wondering. ECM-TECH is back but is only working with ELITE tuners, it's good to see my work being appreciated by a unamed (NDA) mega tuners.

    Also the impossible p2 auto-trans swap can be done at Shems but is costly. 100% correct no warnings and if you're nce I can enable any factory option

    I can also remove the CEM/ECM mapping code, seatbelt chime the whole lot.

    Since I'm mega busy with tuners I can't guarantee anything small in a timeframe but I'm here, Volvo less just letting you know.

    Shem can also supply anything on Hilton Tuning's site now same price as the site.

    Note the small offers (clone e.g) are just for this club as it's been the nicest.

    Rich I'd email but you don't reply sorry, delete if you want, but i believe that members should know this stuff, there is no much disinformation it is unreal. Yes It's commercial.

    I'm considering creating a Volvo ME7 tuning suite which wold auto-find maps for stage 1 or bolt on stage 2, cusom you need a pro. Also airbag light erase for free and a little toolkit I made for various diag duties (again free). I don't work for free but if you guys want to make the suite happen like M4 then it can .

    John.

    I've been speaking with Shem this week regards mine, I had an interesting question, I want to freshen up the gearbox before mapping or at the same time, I was looking to fit a late 2013 up xc90 box the ratios are slightly shorter, would that cause a problem? With soft ware?

    If it does the ratios can be recaibrated.

    Old reply maybe lean spots but without recalibration the AMS is useless it's that simple.

    Sorry about the blocks these need specialists.

    Shems doing an RS4 maf conversion with your specs and 11 blade K24, results are stupendous.

    I should add it's not easy to recalibrate if i needs it, in fact Shem is the only one in the UK that can do it.

    The car knows which gears it's in by speed/rpm, if it's out the torque structure is not happy cruise won't work, etc.

    I've done it before was a pain.

    Seems to add up to high cylinder pressures midrange. My advice, get shot of the RICA. They are poor ME7 tuners, like the worst.

    Auto the TCM defines the shift pattern ECM does a bit inc recieve a can signal for selected gear, etc. I'd say no or risk an expensive fail.

    Looks like a M66 for mat and some witchcraft in the CEM for , Shem, I thnk, will be the first in the UK to complete the job. with no codes.

    I can see this option being popular with 04 R's wanting power!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm looking into get a remap.

    I've only got OEM K&N style filter, 3" downpipe, decat and 3" exhaust. I'm looking into buying universal intercooler core and then get some custom piping done. I can't justify spending 800-900 on an intercooler kit.

    I've contacted Shem and he said, he can do a stage 2.5 with RS4 Maf and billet wheel. Just waiting on a price and then hopefully I'll book it in.

    What sort of power will this make?

    Will I need anything esle to go along with the remap?

    when I purchased the car it already came with a stage 1 remap and according to previous owner it would have been 340BHP but that was done like 5 years + ago.

    oh really. I thought stage 1 was 340BHP. There's alot of tuning websites saying 330BHP, 340BHP. BSR website says 354BHP on a stage 1 and stage 2 with same power.

    When it got mapped there was no dyno or printout. Maybe worth getting her on a dyno before doing stage 2.5 to see where I'm at and then dyno after.

    I would have thought 330 to 340 on a R with a stage 1, you should be looking the other side of 370bhp ish with a stage 2.5
