I may be the only one in my family who sees the potential in a car with a semi-automatic transmission and a Twin-Turbo charged 2.9 Liter V-6 engine...<p>I know that stock isn't the greatest, but it isn't the worst with Volvos either. I see that a lot of you have signatures that tell what you did to your cars, but not how...<p>I can find no strings that talk about the best Turbo Tuning chips, the best Turbo exhaust, downpipe, BOV, Boost gauge, and intake, ways to shed those unwanted-chassis pounds, best tire size, best exterior mods, or best suspension mods...<p>I know this T-6 has sooo much more left in her even at 115000 miles, and because I want to have my dad's car someday soon, I'd like to start my planning. <p>If maybe this website has cleared all these wonderful threads/strings, then I apoligize for being a noob, but I gots to have some answers.<p>Thank you, all.

Re: 1999 S80 of my Dad's requiring... performance (TopRamen)

at 115k it's just a baby <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> i've indicated where i gto each of myupgrades in my sig. you could follow up on those. they are not easy to get, and rather more expensive than high volume off the shelf parts. i can recommend quickbrickmotorsports as a provider for some P2 suspension parts. i am replacing my EVOLVE parts with the QBM parts next upgrade slot i have open.<p>there is plenty out there; you need the bucks and the time to work out a deal. it's definately worth it.<br>Sky

It's good that the transmission is a semi-automatic. That way every time it goes bang, the car will just load in another.<p>Also the 2.9 liter V-6 is very rare. You may have the only one to leave the factory. I'd stop putting miles on it.
