ipd Partners with Gluon

Tuesday, March 7, 2017 - ipd staff

ipd has been known as the Volvo Specialist for decades. This isn’t just a catchphrase for us. We have specialized in developing heavy duty and performance products specifically for Volvo for over 50 years! We are committed to applying resources making your Volvo perform better whether that be through providing high quality maintenance items, manufacturing suspension solutions, or helping you achieve safe and reliable performance gains.

For decades, we’ve worked with some of the most skilled Volvo tuners in the world to offer performance tunes that dramatically increase power without compromising reliability or drivability. Over the years, we’ve offered various methods to get these tunes installed in your Volvo but none of those processes were very convenient. We've also been working to make tunes more accessible. We’re proud to introduce a game changing device that will make tuning easy through your mobile phone or handheld app and the wireless Gluon device. To be clear, we are not offering new tunes but rather a better way of delivering our tunes to your Volvo.


ipd has partnered with Gluon (, a technology company that has developed a patent-pending hardware solution to connect into the OBDII port and tune a vehicle. The Gluon device communicates with a cloud server, which catalogs and assembles tune files specifically for each customers Volvo. Each customer is able to control and monitor the process through a personal wireless device such as a cell phone or tablet (iOS and Android).

Before a general launch, ipd would like feedback from our Volvo community and test as many vehicles as possible through this new system. To encourage our customers participation, we’re lowering the price of our regular tune file packages during this test period for those willing to come to our facility and purchase a tune in person (offer does not apply to custom tuning). To learn more about our tunes click here. We’re looking for customers who own the following Volvo turbo models.

2001-2007 S60, V70, XC70, S80, XC90

2004.5- C30, C70, S40, V50

If you want to be a part of ipd history, and want to get your car tuned for HALF PRICE, please contact Chris Delano or Ken Pruett to schedule an appointment. We have two locations, one in Portland, Oregon and another in Livermore, California.

We look forward to hearing from you!

What about tuning options for 850's and 1998 70 Series (Motronic 4.3 & 4.4)?

I assume by the info provided only people living in California or Oregon can apply to be a tester for this? Is that correct?
