This results in vehicle components that begin to wear and break sooner and easier as the vehicle power increases.

Customer Reviews
Let me first say Mr.Robert and Michelle are just wonderful people to talk and communicate with. Regardless of whatever you read elsewhere I can tell you lucky offers one of the best and affordable tunes out there. I myself am ASE MASTER certified and Master Certified from Volvo cars of North America and worked for Volvo for several years and can say to go ahead and put your trust in Robert. I will say when I first put the tune in I had drivability issues with it but after getting to the bottom of the issue it was discovered that my vehicle had several issues wrong with it such as incorrectly adjusted wastegate, faulty tcv and a dirty and intermittently failing MAF. Although I had no issues before the tune it was due to the stock tune which masked all these issues due to its leniency of operating parameters. In other words if you want your Volvo to perform and be faster from a tune understand if your car has some hidden issues they will most likely be uncovered as you take your Volvo to optimum performance with a be smart and make sure your Volvo is 100% for 100% performance expectation and satisfaction. Common issues with an s60r or the following : ignition coils,tcv, incorrect wastegate adjustment,maf,boost pressure sensor. fuel pressure sensors and fuel your spark plugs, fuel filter and engine air filter are good and or replaced along with ensuring it's running correctly and expect a awesome tune with a grin from ear to ear!!!!!

Rating ECU tune, the awakening!
After having owned my S60 T5 for its entire 15+ years I decided to invest back in all of the reliable, comfortable, and sporty enjoyment by doing modifications. Over the past few months I've done bolt-on parts as well as all of the stage "0" maintenance, and the ECU tune (I mailed it over), which really brought the improvements to a new level of enjoyment. The throttle response, shift change time and firmness (auto [still working well!), and available power throughout the band are very noticeable gains. Gas mileage has increased on average (right foot contingent ;). I have over 500 miles on the tune currently (vehicle has 72k mi.) and everything is 100%. This is a first of future tunes to come from ARD as I plan on doing additional work. I am very satisfied by the customer service (thank you Michelle), committed technical support and involvement with endless courtesy and reception from my multiple questions. A very professional company that reflects its passion through its practices. I do strongly support the previous post, especially covering the maintenance portion prior to the tune. Although I replaced parts such as the oem exhaust, dp, turbo inlet and air filter, etc. which yielded improvements, it was the full system checkup/servicing I did which was most important. I specifically checked/changed the fuel and oil filters and fluids, changed the spark plugs (gapped them appropriately for the tune), coolant, transmission fluid (I did a partial drain and fill in multiple intervals. I replaced both the TCV and PCV (also in lieu of future modifications), and physically inspected the condition of hoses, sensors, and waste gate setting. This tune was well worth it to me and I recommend it to anyone seeking more from their Swedish steed!
