    Im about to get my first volvo, a 06' S60R, and im interested in getting a new exhaust system, originally I was just going to get an exhaust but after viewing some threads on here It seems like I might as well also get a new downpipe, many people say it improves temps and power, is this true...

    I just got a 2007 Volvo s60r and of course for the time being I really want to straight pipe it for fun, my buddy told me that he read somewhere that if I was to straight pipe my s60r it’s best I get it tuned, hopefully this isn’t a air-headed question, my first Volvo... want to know if i should...

    My first post! As the title suggests, I am considering aftermarket bucket/sports seats for my 06 V70R, and I was wondering if any of you know what all I will/may have to do the full swap: brackets, wiring, tinkering with VIDA, etc. Yes the R seats are the comfiest things I've ever sat in, but...

    Question what are the disadvantages of tuning a automatic 2007 s60r. How much power can the transmission take. Would have went with a manual but couldnt seem to find a well maintained, not beaten on by some kid or even cheap enough near me so the auto was the clear choice. Hope you all can...

    Hello everyone new to the forum. 2007 S60r 136k Looking for some help about shimming, possibly sometime soon. I was thinking of using feeler gauges instead of actual shims due to the fact that i dont really have time to take the head off measure the gap and then have the car sit until I can...

    Reoccuring issue i’m having w/ my 2005 SR M66 w/ 98k miles. After coming to a quick stop, my rpms will dip down (a couple of times the red warning light flashed too quickly to read [almost feels like the engine is about to stall]), and then jump back up to regular rpm. During longer rides my...

Most yards have terrible reviews so I am not sure if I should risk buying sight unsee. Let me know if you have any...

    Several months ago I picked up an S60R for use as a winter vehicle. It’s been a great daily driver since, but when I was on the highway today I experienced an immediate and complete loss of all electrical systems, including engine, turn signals, and brake lights. The gauges on the dash are...

    I have enjoyed seeing the grassroots modifications that have emerged over the years for the P2Rs. The R Forum has seen its fair share innovative ideas when it comes to turbo upgrades. Guys and girls working in their garage and using custom software tunes to squeeze out more power than the...

    Every now and then someone puts together something so unique that when it pops up in the Classifieds, we have to take a moment and wonder if we could rearrange the garage to make room. Our Find of the Day comes from Woodstock, GA. Swedespeed reader, ZekeUSMC, has a one of a kind S60R that was...
