RE: Rica Tuning for the V40

Have asked Polestar if they are going to do the D2 modification.
But they have no plans for that..

So if you want you're D2 tuned you have to go to Rica they do the D2.

Not sure if I will do it in a later stage.. First I want my V40.. :-)

Rica Tuning for the V40

Most tuners have something already for the common engines.

I beleive Rica, BSR, fast tech and MTE have something.

I am going to have the guys at MTE do some tweaking on my T4 (which I hope to drive next week)

RE: Rica Tuning for the V40

Rica do the D2 indeed, just not now already. They're still working on it. I find that a bit odd, I was thinking this should be the same D2 engine as in the S60/V60, no?
I know mine is a company car, so I'm not sure yet about doing it or not, but I drive a chipped car now too, and that never failed to put a smile on my face when I step on it :-)
If the power is going to be in the same region as for the S60/V60 (141 bhp), I might have a really hard time arguing with myself :-)

RE: Rica Tuning for the V40

I sent an e-mail to RICA, asking why the tuning for the D2 still isn't available. All I got is they're working on it. After that, I sent an e-mail to the Swedish department of RICA asking the same thing. They told me that the D2 is exactly the same as the D2 in the S40, S60, V50, V60, C30,... and can be tuned to 141 hp without any problem.
I don't really get it. Does anybody know more on the subject?

Factory warranty no longer valid.
There are plenty of dealers however that take the warranty risk when they tune the car.
But officially no longer a problem for Volvo but for the dealer...
So as long as you visit your regular dealer that did the tuning you should be ok..

RE: Rica Tuning for the V40

Indeed they do :-)
I wonder how it'll ride, that's more torque then a D3! (also, isn't it a bit too much for the gearbox?)
