Ok, so i want to ask you guys about the chip tuning for the Volvo S40 t5 with automatic gearbox. I want to make this step as soon as posible. My cas has 33.000 miles, I want to go for a stage 1 chip that will give me aprox 270 hp (or at least this is what the tuners listed). My question is: how this chiptuning will interact with the gearbox? Is it safe? From what i know the aisin gearbox has torque limiter on gears 1 and 2. If that limit is not modified the gearbox will be ok with 40 hp + ? Allso the does the stock TCV needs to be replaced? Mine is an year old. I would really like to rise the power up a little bit but allso i would like to keep the car for at least 3-4 years.
Thanks for all your answers.
