<p>noticed that someone hadnt even heard of a 460/ 480 turbo. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Christ where have u people been. & no its not mini 850, the 850 was built on the 460 turbo. as the turbo 460 was first produced in 1990. wher as the 480 turbo was produced ealrier on. <p>yup i still got a volvo 460 turbo on a H reg plate/ which means its 15 years old from new. very minor rust due to not being looked after from its previous owners <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/frown.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>engine consists of. 1721cc turbo charged intercooled @ 130bhp stright from the factory, but bearing in mind there are alot of restrictions on the engine. so there could be a huge increase in power. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>The only mod i have done is with the cars cpu which gave me an xtra 75bhp when i upgraded it. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> Further more if i stuck bigger exhaust / and diffrent cams, bigger fuel pump, and a replacement air filter , and changed the wastegate off the garret t2 turbo then there would be a huge diffrence.<p>car handles like a dream even after 98000 miles for which mine has done, and is still going strong. hanldes as if it is on rails in the dry but yet front end slides out when going round round abouts to fast in the wet, and yet just stick ur foot down in 3rd gear and it wheel spins for all its worth <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Over all a good reliable car, very tuneable if u can find some one who does the parts, and shamefully not very many about as i think they were produced in limited numbers, but the 460 turbo range from 1991 - 1993<p>Can post pics of my car if people want them.<p>Gimmie shout and i shall post away.

Re: 460 turbo intercooled. (Britishman)

Britishman,<br> Cool your jets dude! I think we all have a pretty good idea what a 400 series was, I was only only joking when I said it <B>looked</B> like a mini 850, which they do. Besides I say around 75% of the people here LIVE in America so they're rarely talked about anyway.<BR><BR>
