RICHMODS

Here you can talk about the joy owning a Volvo 480 brings. Non-technical discussions take place here, like what is the difference between an ES and a S version.

RICHMODS

Post by lee » Sun Apr 19, 2009 12:37 pm

Anyone who wants one, i can help.

The price will be:
1-3 ecus the cost is £110 including return postage of your ecu.
4-7 ecus the cost is £100 including return postage of your ecu.
7+ ecus the cost is £95 including return postage of your ecu.

Orders placed
1. pa.chab
2. richj
3. Hamish
4. B18FT - LOVER
5. rowan
6.
This is more than the orginal richmod i know but this is to cover my travel costs, my time, abuse on my car for the testing of the ECU's.

Not ripping anyone off just covering costs. Please bear in mind that these are hard to get.

I know people might be a little weary after the bbf_uk incident.

If people want orange ecu's done i have some that you can borrow so that you don't loose your car.

I will be going in the month of may so not much notice sorry. this is a one chance of getting time.

Post here or PM me

Would you be willing to sell an orange ecu richmodded?

I ask because I would like to have two ecu's, one standard and one tuned.

How much would you want for the ecu?

Cheers,

Rich

I think I made a mistake. The ecu is next to the drivers right foot in rhd? Mine has a green sticker, I thought it was orange for some reason. How much is an ecu worth? Would an orange one work in place of a green one?

ecu is at the left hand side of drivers feet on rhd car! behind the centre console. Not the right side that is not the electronic module which is rechipped.

you remove your ecu and send it to lee who takes i rpruen who then remaps the chip road ess it on lees 480 .Lee then returns ecu to it is not about buying a complete one off the shelf . but ask lee he might have a spare ecu and be able to sell it to you then you can get it remapped and not be off the road. See what Lee says if he does not have a blue spare ecu that you can buy then I can supply one but will not cut across any of lee's trade so try him first.

regards jim

Thanks jim! I want a 2nd ecu so I have options if I need them. I have no idea what a blue ecu is worth? Will any of the other colours work instead of blue? cheers

there is a thread which lists the colour compatibility of ecus but if I remember correctly the blue will fit in most other coluours but I stand to be corrected on that one.

Blue will only fit blue (late turbos).

Only red is interchangeable with the orange and purple ones (early turbos).

Hope this is of help.
