All chips come pre-set for optimal power and economy so adjustment is not necessary: you can simply plug-in and enjoy! Not all vehicles will achieve Max figures when on a higher setting, most standard vehicles will achieve a power between After and Max figures. To fine-tune your system simply press the HIGH or LOW buttons on the keypad to make small incremental adjustments above or below the supplied setting, easy to do and fully explained in instructions supplied.

Achieve a guaranteed increase in performance from a name synonymous with digital diesel tuning systems – CHIP Express™.
Unlike "generic" diesel tuning systems, this advanced, self fit chip will be programmed specifically to optimise your Volvo XC90 MK1 2.4 D5. And because it works in conjunction with your on-board computer rather than altering it, all engine safety functions remain operational. What's more, the system can be easily unplugged, leaving no trace of fitment, returning your vehicle to factory standard at any time.
The CHIP Express™ system simply plugs in using connectors which are identical to those originally fitted by the manufacturer - there are no wires to cut, just follow the supplied photo-instructions for your specific engine and you'll have the job done in minutes. Once installed, you will immediately feel the transformation. You'll pull away with ease, climb hills effortlessly and enjoy extra reserves of power when you need them. Your whole driving experience will be enhanced thanks to the significant boosts in performance. You'll feel the improved acceleration, the cleaner, crisper throttle response and enjoy smoother gear changes – turbo lag and hesitation off the mark will be replaced by a faster, more linear and instantaneous delivery of performance; you'll also appreciate a reduction in engine noise. Improvements in torque will transform low end dynamics and allow you to keep RPM's down by holding taller gears while using less throttle for similar speeds, helping you save fuel. Remember while most tuning companies aim to provide maximum power our aim is to also refine drivability and in gear flexibility, providing a wider spread of usable performance where you need it most!
By making your engine significantly more fuel-efficient, the CHIP Express™ digital tuning system means you can achieve substantially better economy from your MK1 2.4 D5 too. You'll drive on a smaller throttle opening for a given speed and change gear less, getting you further on a tank of diesel!
* Typical economy results between 8-16% yet can produce up to 20% depending on engine tolerances, driving style and conditions. CHIP Express™ diesel tuning chips may also increase the maximum speed of your vehicle by up to 5%; applies to non speed limited vehicles only.
Vehicle manufacturers are forced to compromise when they set up the engine's ECU, to create vehicles which will operate in a wide variety of markets and conditions.
To meet all these different needs, they re-program the vehicle's ECU to change the engine requirements. Now, thanks to CHIP Express™ class-leading, state of the art solutions, you can benefit from greater low-down torque for improved pulling power, higher output for better out-and-out performance, and better fuel economy!
Steve from Sussex with a Volvo XC90 MK1 2.4 D5 200 said:Ordered at 3.30pm and it arrived and was fitted by 10.30am the following morning. Fitting was simplicity itself and could not have been easier. Have not driven it far yet but there is a noticeable increase in power but more importantly loads more low down torque for drivability. BRILLIANT and much better value and better increases than Volvos own Polestar chip! FOLLOW UP: Further to my earlier posting I have now had more opportunity to drive the car since fitting the CHIP Express box. The car is noticeably smoother, and the increase in torque not only provided better drivability but the auto box now changes down sooner on demand and up into top gear earlier on light throttle. This has resulted in an indicated increase in fuel economy, I am now getting 470 miles to a tank as opposed to 400 before fitting the box. Absolutely delighted!
Ian from Colchester with a Volvo XC90 MK1 2.4 D5 185 said:Works well, turns a slow beast of 2 Tonnes from a 0-60 at 11 seconds to a 0-60 in around 9 seconds, with my driving style economy went from 27mpg to 30mpg. I've bought a new car and not worried about performance because I know I can fit one of these and performance will be just fine.
Ian from Darwen with a Volvo XC90 MK1 2.4 D5 185 said:Having recently bought you product I can tell you this has transformed my vehicle... better MPG, I achieved 32mpg whilst towing my 1500kg caravan. I took the vehicle for its MOT and passed the emission test with flying colours. A better CAR ALL ROUND!
“May I congratulate you on this diesel tuning product as it has made a noticeable difference to my Land Rover Discovery. I have tried other diesel tuning boxes for my previous vehicles (Kia Sorento, Peugeot 206 and Vauxhall Vectra)... and they all produced slight engine stuttering under certain load conditions. The CHIP Express system does not show any evidence of this and is equal to the likes of an ECU remap (which I have also had done before) for smoothness and noticeable power gains. This would be the only diesel tuning product I would recommend.”

“I must say l'm delighted with the improvement from your chip, its on the standard settings and the difference in the car is amazing!!! I have a smile on my face every time I get in the car, and there is about 5-7mpg improvement. With the mileage l do, l can see myself getting my money back in no time at all. So if your a doubter like me, don't be because its one of the best things l've ever bought!!!”

“Your customer service, speed at which you deal with questions and chip (most importantly) are second to none. This is the 3rd variation of the chip that I have run, not only do I see the fuel savings made each and every time I fill up but I also feel the changes in the increased performance too. Far too often people only feel the need to leave negative feedback on a product, it's very rare that people take the time to leave positive comments however on this occasion I feel compelled to do so. A brilliant product and one that I highly recommend should you want to make the most of your cars potential performance and make a fuel saving to add into the bargain. What's not to like?! It's been a pleasure dealing with the team at Chip Express, I just wish everyone I dealt with in life was this professional! Thank you.”

“A friend recommended one of your "gadgets" a year ago and being not-very-techno (but Scottish and keen to save money!) I bought one. The gizmo has TRANSFORMED the performance of my Land Rover Freelander 2 TD4 AND improved the fuel economy by a genuine 15%; so much so that I have bought another one for our Freelander 2 SD4 which is now a REAL Q-car! (And of course saves fuel...) I have never written a review before (though strangely I do read them and take notice of them, whilst half-believing that they are written by the owner's chums!) so to have made me pick up pen & paper so to speak - I MUST be delighted! Thanks for making technology so simple and so successful!”

“A good product and a good service deserves recognition: I fitted a CHIP Express unit to my Insignia. What an amazing bit of kit! My fuel economy and performance went way up and with the mileage I do was a Godsend! On a run to Aberdeen from Hull I returned an average of 62 MPG and I drive quite energetically! I've just taken up the trade in offer and saved a few quid on a new system. The Vauxhall has now gone with 125,000 trouble free miles and I have changed car to a Volvo S60 D3. I'm looking forward to fitting the Chip Express unit and reaping the rewards, thanks guys!”

“As do many, I took the 'if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is' approach to performance chips. But CHIP Express were recommended by an impeccable source who had had experience with their product on my model of car - a Citroën C6 with the 2.7 HDi twin turbo diesel. Following a first rate response to a query, the product has delivered in spades. Ten days and more than 1000 miles of mixed town, country, low and high speed driving later I am certainly getting more than 10% more from a gallon, and probably 15%, and the performance is markedly better. Low speed response is immediate and has eradicated what I took to be baked-in lag in a big automatic turbo diesel, and mid-range acceleration is silky smooth, including up inclines. A very good car has been turned into the excellent car I had hoped for all along.”
