The Volvo FM13 is a member of the Volvo FM truck family, designed as a heavy-duty, multipurpose vehicle for various tasks. Since its inception in 1998, it has undergone numerous facelifts, resulting in a variety of engines. This article focuses on the 2019 Volvo FM13 equipped with a 12.8L D13C diesel engine. Given its versatility, the ability to handle heavy loads is crucial. ECU tuning can boost your Volvo FM13’s towing capacity significantly.

The Solution

We customize each tune not only to the specific vehicle but also to your individual requirements and driving conditions. This personalized approach ensures you receive the highest quality tune, optimal performance, and the safest settings. ECU tuning is not a one-size-fits-all solution, and we employ the Alientech KESS3 tool to guarantee the best and safest results.

With a custom tune from Alt Tune, your Volvo FM13 will gain increased power, enabling you to optimize operations, ensure timely deliveries, and enhance the overall driving experience. This results in elevated horsepower and torque, improved throttle response, fuel efficiency, and towing capacity—enhancements that can optimize your operations. Additionally, we have devised a solution for emission-setting issues commonly faced by diesel trucks. Our emission settings solution eliminates these problems, ensuring increased reliability for your Volvo FM13.
