Hi all, i have a 1999 C70 T5. black with 18" rims. I recently installed powerchip and must say that what value for money.

increases are 176kw to 210kw and 330nm to 400nm of torque all for AUD$1000.

also upgraded the exhaulst with a resonator. The stock C70 muffler is really designed to keep the noise level down. i'm not very mechanical but when i saw the size difference compared to the sports muffler i was surprised. the stock was 3 times the size, made up of numberous chambers.

so now the my C70 gives a low classy sound and so much power for no major modification to the car.

Tech, as a guy who see's Volvo's all the time, have you ever seen a dealer refuse a warranty claim based on chipping or ecu reprogramming?

I have only ever seen it once but it was a weird situation.Under the norm they pretty much never know it is there unless you tell them.

hi timt6, the waranty question is a good one. i actually still have a new car extended warantee and i double checked with the dealer where i bought the car from new. and they ok'd the chip upgrade. In fact they are offering this as an option to their new customers.
