      Heico XC60 Project has begun

      Following on from the current V70R Project, I introduce a new addition to the stable.

      14102257_10157351304355298_4357600630927062912_n.jpg

      2011 XC60 T6 R Design

      Included with the following factory additions:
      • City Safety / Technology package
      • Climate package
      • Multimedia package

      Overall, a fun XC but I wanted something more. We all want more.

      Time for the Performance package to commence.
      In order to get the most of this, I liaised directly with Heico Sportiv from Germany and was guided along the way by Connor @ Viva Performance and Mike (AussieMikeD5). Credit must be given to their first hand knowledge and assistance and especially Mike for installing everything.

      Starting with a thoroughbred 224kw / 300hp and 440Nm

      • Polestar Optimisation upgrade
      • Heico Sportiv E-motion tune
      • Heico Sportiv air filter & air filter cleaning kit
      • Ferrita 3.5" Performance downpipe

      The net result being 265kw/365hp and a massive 650Nm. *without official dyno testing

      Further tuning was required with the suspension.
      • Heico Sportiv Sport suspension system - This system reduces the overall height of the car a further 30mm.
      • IPD-USA performance sway bar - Creating more responsive turning and handling.

      Internal / External:
      • 2010 fog lights and fog light housing painted satin silver
      • Rear tailgate trim painted satin silver
      • Polestar shifter
      • Nordic Light Oak centre console trim
      • Illuminated Volvo door trims
      • Dynamat lining for all doors - made a huge difference to bass and sound quality
      • Mud Flaps - they work most of the time..

      Make up:
      • Heico Sportiv badging
      • Custom Terrangkorning Landvagn decals

      Overall, I am satisfied with the results, however with all projects there is more to come.
      Further upgrades lined up includes Performance downpipe, Heico quad exhaust system or Polestar exhaust.

      Heico front emblem - replaces the factory R-design emblem

      Road testing saw this XC60 drive 4000km through 3 Australian states, 2 major capital cities, 1 mountain climb, a month of cbd peak hour traffic and countless hours on the freeway. Average fuel consumption was 9.6l/100km.

      Awesome work and it looks great (love the white)! So when are you snapping on the Heico front and rear spoilers, Heico quad exhaust and some Volutions?!

      Question; wouldn't the Heico tune just overwrite the polestar tune?

      Adam didn't do any of the work apart from the stickers.... he does want my 20" Volution V's in dark grey that are on my Crystal white pearl 2015 XC60 D5 R design.

      The heico eMotion is a piggy back ecu and they have 2 versions with one for Polestar tuned cars which has 7kw more than a standard T6 with eMotion. The polestar tune can certainly be felt and the Heico takes it to the next level but Adam preferred my Polestar with Heico eMotion which is 280kw....

      fantastic. how much power can be had with a downpipe and exhaust system? maybe with higher flow cats?

      How were you able to install fog lights on that XC60? I thought the 2011-2013 models couldn't have fogs because the power steering pump or something was moved and now in the way.

      By the looks of the infotainment center that is a pre-sensus car. 2011.5 got the electric power steering pump that blocked the fog light and sensus.

      My XC is a mix of pre-sensus and sensus.
      The original housings were removed to make way for the pre-sensus fog lights including sensors. These were painted satin silver to match the existing R-design trim.
      The wiring loom had to be sourced from another XC however, weren't needed as the electric power steering pump was in the way. So theres no bulb in there. Other side is ok. Im currently researching into some led fog lights to see if they'll fit.

      Outstanding work on this. I'm curious how much the Heico 2nd ECU adds in terms of performance vs. the Polestar tune. I'm considering doing this, and emailed Heico last week with no response. Information and support in the US is extremely sparse. Any chance you got the XC60 on a dyno?

      Standard output is 224kw, 242kw with Polestar tune and 253kw with the Heico on top. I am hoping to dyno a V60T6 this Thursday that has the same setup but also the Ferrita downpipe and the Heico exhaust and if I get time, the Snabb intake. I'm then putting my Polestar on the same dyno with the Ferrita exhaust and running it before plugging in the Heico eMotion so it's a true back to back run.

      Regards,

      Michael

      NICE!

      What lowering springs did you use? I installed a set of H&Rs from Viva, and loved the lower center of gravity, but after a year I finally had to admit that it was too darn stiff.

      Wondering if Eibach springs might give the same lower ride height, with a slightly softer ride than the H&Rs.

      Thanks!

      I've had the H&Rs on for over a year and although the ride is somewhat stiff I find it very tolerable. The combination of the H&R springs, Koni FSD struts, and IPD sway bar make for a very well-handling ride.

      I considered the Eibach springs but George was unable to source any here in the US or from Europe.

      Not with this shifter. The option was available but much more expensive!

      Cool

      Very nice, I'm looking at these 2 options you put in.

      • Heico Sportiv E-motion tune - raising the bar higher with another 11kw/15hp and 120Nm.
      • Heico Sportiv air filter & air filter cleaning kit

      How much were they, where did you get them and does a Service remove the "tune"

      Was there any specific reason for the suspension? eg, because of this extra power..

      I've got my 2014 XC60 R-Design and I'm loving the numbers you put up.

      Nobody?

      OP is from AU and so is Mike who appeared to do the work? Any advise here.. I'm loving the NM numbers, but I don't want to lower my car, new exhaust etc - stock stealth.

      The Heico emotion advanced tune is not an ECU flash like the Polestar tune from the dealer. It is an add-on 2nd ECU that can be removed at any time. Heico e.motion advanced (requires Polestar tune first or RD model) posted numbers are
      339 hp 365 ft lb tq

      What does that piggyback unit cost? Is it the $3,000 one I've seen advertised? That would mean T6 people without the factory P* tune would need to spend $1-1.5k on the Polestar reflash, just to be eligible for another $3k tune, for a grand total of $4,000-$4,500 for software. My God...

      Hi mate,

      Apologies for the delays as I dont come on here much due to work restraints.

      Heico are yet to release the products in Australia but will do within a few months. I was lucky and got mine direct from Heico and paid the ridiculous taxes and postage to Australia for my efforts.
      All up about a $5k for everthing plus installation. Mike in Adelaide is the only one in Australia who has installed these products and AFAIK, only 2 XC60's have e.motion - his and mine.
      Each e.motion is custom tuned to each configuration. Plus its retunable. I have been told you can wind the boost right up to an easy 450HP with a full exhaust if I want to. Just a few more $K..
      The current results are incredible. It clearly beats my 380HP V70R in a drag but the R will eventually reel it in - but by then, you're doing 200kmhr.

      The suspension is firm and tight - and the IPD sway bar is a MUST. It currently sits about 5cm lower than a Non R-design XC60.

      Correct.
      However, I believe both the e.motion & TDI push 18psi through the K16.
      I would trust Heico's figures but remain sceptical how 365hp is achieved according TDI.

      is it just me, or are the pictures not working for anyone else?

      Great build, btw! I'm curious, are you planning on a bigger turbine or just sticking with software tunes for now? seems like a lot of money to throw down for a re-tune...but I guess it's a tough market since there are so few people that tune XC60's.

      They're facebook pictures and probably set where they aren't public. They won't work for anyone unless you are a friend of theirs.

      The Heico product is fully supported by Heico, tunable and does not affect Volvo's warranty. TDI box voids warranty if detected.
      Admittedly, it is very expensive but the figures are genuine and not inflated like other products on the market.(TDI box)

      Only voids warranty if the broken item is related to tuning box. For example if power window stops working then volvo has to cover it. However, if you blow your tranny then...good luck.
