Alive Tuning once again weaved their magic on a Volvo S60 D5 diesel automatic. These require the ECU to be sent to Alive’s HQ where they turned it around in just a day. Engine gains were impressive with power increased from 170 -to 181bhp but significant torque gains from 370Nm to 428Nm – both gains at a lower rpm.
More impressive was the way that the car now drives with the gear changes in particular feeling smoother and the engine more “eager”. This Volvo is one of our own so we are very happy with the initial results and will report back after longer trips with regards to any changes to the fuel economy and the way it drives.
And yes, the Nurburgring sticker is for real ……!
