Elevate Performance Software Chip Tuning is the art of tailoring the standard ECM (Engine Control Module) software file, which is stored in the factory engine management system, to your fuel octane and bolt-on modifications (if any). To increase the power output of an engine, we modify the file maps which control turbo boost, ignition timing, fuel delivery, and throttle response. By adjusting these parameters specific to your fuel octane, your engine will be optimized to produce maximum power and efficiency. Your car comes from the factory with a "dumbed down" software file to be able to accommodate the worst of fuels that a customer might put in the car. By you using higher octane, premium fuel, we create a file specific to the octane you most commonly have access to. You can choose from 91, 92, 93, 94 or other octane based on the AKI test method of R+M/2.

The Best Performing Software Files

Our team of software engineers has been calibrating engine management systems since 1994, and has been specialized in Volvo applications since 1999. We perform all of our testing and evaluation on the road (and race track where relevant) and prove the results on either our Rototest (www.rototest.com) dynamometer in Sweden or a Dynapack (www.dynapack.com) dynamometer in the US. These hub-mounted chassis dynamometers are the most accurate on the market, as they measure true wheel torque at the hub rather than a tire interfacing with a huge roller. We engineer our files to deliver the maximum power without compromising engine or drivetrain life. While peak power numbers are impressive, extracting peak numbers doesn't always relate to what you experience on the road. Drivability is more important than these peak dyno numbers, and that is where our software delivers. Maximum performance that you can feel every day. To make sure our competition stays in our rear view mirrors, we frequently evaluate their files to assure our customers that they are getting the best performing software on the market.

Software Installation Challenges of the Past

Over the years, there have been several ways of installing software into your Volvo's ECM, and each has their draw backs. The most common has been removing your ECM, shipping it off, and waiting for its return. With this, your car is inoperable without the ECM in place. Other companies have offered handheld solutions, but the unit may or may not have a correctly tuned file for your model pre-installed, requiring you to "read" your software, send it to them, and wait for them to create a file for you and send it to you for installation. Some companies using older technology require you to read your software file, send it to them and wait for several days for a tuned file to arrive for you to then install. Anytime you "read" your engine software file, it is critical that a professional battery conditioner be in place during the reading process. Anytime your Volvo retailer plugs into the OBD II port, they first connect an expensive battery conditioner to ensure the battery does not fall below a certain voltage during communication with the car's electronic systems. Depending on the equipment being used to read the engine management software, the process can take well over an hour and a half. During this time, it is very possible that the battery would lose charge sufficient to causing the car's computer to crash. You are then faced with an immobilized car being towed to your dealership with some explaining to do about how your car's computer crashed...

Software Installation Solutions for Today and the Future

ELEVATE has created an easy, fast, and trouble free means of tuning your Volvo using our Elevate Performance Tuner (EPT) Handheld Tuner. When you order, we ship you the APC tuner WITH YOUR CUSTOM CALIBRATED FILES INSTALLED. Once received, plug the EPT programmer into your OBDII port and follow the on-screen instructions to upload either your Modified file.  Four minutes later, your car is tuned!  We create your tuned file by tracing your car's Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).  This method allows us to create an accurate file for your specific car.  All other companies require use of complicated "kits" that require use of a PC computer and knowledge of how to navigate Volvo's VIDA system.

When you purchase, we will email you asking for your fuel octane and list of bolt-on performance parts (if any). We then create your custom calibrated Tuned file, upload it to the EPT handheld tuner, and ship to you. You upload the Modified file to your Volvo and ship us back the EPT handheld tuner using the included label for our next customer to use. Having the expensive handheld tuner "on loan" allows us to offer you our Performance Software at the lowest price possible.

Customers outside of the USA contact us for shipping details: info@elevatecars.com

The purchase price is $795.00 (plus shipping). Once we receive the EPT handheld tuner back from you, we immediately issue a $300 refund, making the final purchase price just $495.00 (plus shipping).
