GLWS Your Ride has 433 hp or so

Don Nicholson-related to the famed "Dyno Don" Nicholson-carries on the family tradition of power and performance in the form of Evolve Cars. Rather than wrenching on NHRA Pro Stock monsters, Nicholson squeezes power out of-yep, you guessed it-Volvos. Before you snicker, know that Evolve has the expertise to extract over 430 horsepower from Volvo's svelte 2.4-liter I-5 engine. And that's on 91-octane fuel.

Whether you start with a base 257-horsepower S60 T5 or a 300-horse S60 R, Evolve replaces the factory turbocharger setup with a specially made ceramic-coated high-output ballbearing-style turbo. A custom exhaust manifold, external wastegate, and unique turbo downpipe compose the exhaust setup, while a special high-flow air-inlet system, a suitcase-size front-mounted aluminum intercooler, and race-style pop-off valve handle intake duties. Oversized fuel injectors with a proprietary support computer ensure a proper air/fuel ratio as the inline-five churns out a stout 433 horsepower. Other underhood goodies include heavy-duty silicone radiator hoses, a beefier engine-mount bushing, specially painted and badged bits, and a 3.0-inch-diameter stainless-steel exhaust system that voices the perfect amount of growl.

From a stop, plant the throttle, quickly fan the gears, and the family-friendly Evolve S60 cranks out a 4.7-second 0-to-60-mph run and nearly breaks into the 12s in the quarter. Can you see the kids smiling from their car seats?

The S60 R's suspension is surprisingly good, but is upped in the form of Evolve's sport spring kit that lowers the car over one inch and increases the spring rate by 20 percent. Adjustable front and rear anti-roll-bars and a custom rear track bar are added along with urethane suspension bushings. A set of Evolve's 19-inch-diameter E7 multipiece alloy wheels with Pirelli PZero Nero tires puts the I-5's 442 pound-feet of torque to the pavement.

Handling is crisper and more predictable, but not so racy as to jiggle the juice boxes from the little hands of the backseat-riding kidlets. For improved safety, optional six-piston front brake calipers clamp 14-inch-diameter two-piece rotors that deliver consistent fade-free stopping.

The S60 sports more tailored looks, too, thanks to Evolve's aerodynamic-esque front bumper, unique side sills, reshaped rear bumper, trunk spoiler, functional hood grilles, and taillight trim. Custom-stitched leather seats, a recovered steering wheel, upgraded carpeting, and sporty foot pedals add flair.

If you're looking for something different for your daily commute, consider Evolve. This Swede has speed.

Hmmm, you posted

OP posted
215 horsepower giving it a total of 527 horsepower
Its just math, you should be able to figue it out yourself 527 > 430 right?

A seller with one post comes on with a 527 HP claim..... right sure you betcha... no reason to question that

I have to call a spade a spade when I see one

Spade or Not.The Sellers numbers are off no doubt ( maybe has a hit of No2?). How many of you gangster volvo jockies lol have 430 hp A handful ;a finger maybe? The POINT is he was attacked by armchair Einsteins who never knew this car existed.Learn before you flap the jabber jaws. Nuff said.

Some of these numbers may be off but a lot of people are just hating for the sake of hating....realistically, he will probably get somewhat close to that.

Lot of people opened their mouths a little too soon....quite funny to watch the herd follow....

The herd is not following, the herd just knows BS when it sees it.

Either have the OP Post an dyno to support the 527 HP claim with bolt In's or STFU, nuff said (I see he deleted his other post in this thread that contained conflicting information)

You would need a sleeved block, & forged internals to support that HP, if you think bolt ons can deliver 500+ hp you probably believe that vampires & werewolves are real too.

The OP has a beautiful car no doubt, he is just off on his HP claims by more that a little bit.

The guy in the below post is the real deal, the OP is a pretender.

....it can probably deliver it. Doesn't mean the block will hold it without those internal upgrades. Whose to say he hasn't thrown on this "upgraded turbo" and thrown the boost to nuts levels. I'm not saying I'd buy the car without knowing more....I'm just saying the price, mixed in with upgrades (for the right person) isn't that far off. But yes, I agree, seeing a chart and some documentation of internal upgrades would be nice/ideal/basically a requirement to buy this car.

Whether or not the car has over 500hp is for a potential buyer to try and figure out....but from a sale standpoint, even if the car does only have 420hp or so....it's not insane. People do retarded things for Sonic Blue and that body kit and interior will speak to someone.
