Default T5 upgrade question

Hello Volvo experts,

I drive a Volvo S60 2.4 T5.
- Power: 260bhp
- Auto geartronic transmission.

I am thinking of a "RICA" upgrade but am worried that because of the
auto box the additional power/torque won't result in more acceleration.
Basically I am asking if the 0-60 will improve in spite of the auto box.

Thank you in advance for any advice.

Thread moved to a more appropriate forum.

Guys, any tips for Edward?

Cheers, Pete
