Not a challenge or a competition, just a question from a car nut.

After all this time, what are the modded cars looking at?

I'm just curious as to what is actually possible with these cars; I know the old iPD/MTE kit promised 420, and some people were looking at the mid 300s with ECU/DP/intake/exhaust. I figure at this point the R owners would have a good handle on what power is possible and how it is possible. Can't exactly look in an import or Euro car mag and read about a Volvo.

I remember in the early days people were happy to just make the factory-advertised 300hp.

I feel this is still the case for most, unfortunately

I believe big guy in Charlotte has the most unless someone has surpassed him. Last I heard he had a custom built motor and a big turbo, rebuilt driveline. I may have close to the most for the bolt on still on the stock motor crowd. I know Boosted's custom built motor is showing up soon and it will be a beast when he is done.

Josh's (R_Rated) old R probably has the most IIRC but I don't know who owns it now. Close behind are probably Benny (blot) and Tigers1981. Am I forgetting anyone?

R_Rated is Josh and I thought he still had his R.
He made 463awhp on his beast

Boosted is caught in that mess with VMS?


I've been eagerly waiting for his car's return to fame too. May never happen.

I didn't have the MOST HP, but I had a real RELIABLE and very smooth 380 HP.
The Sonic never missed a beat, was unbelivably smooth and quite quick.
It would have been interesting to drive an S60R with that combination, 200 or so lbs. lighter.
I believe the biggest thing that set mine apart was the (custom) ECU flash

IIRC he sold it and bought a C63 AMG (it's been six months since he posted)

I know Sean (slowery) sold his and bought a C55AMG. So who ended up with Josh's power monster?

Jim, I remember driving your VR while passing through and it drove great. Very smooth, very fun, and responsive. Couldn't compare it to the other 2 R's I drove, been too long. Speaking of 200 lbs, I think that's about how much stuff I had in my car when you drove it... haha.

So it sounds like 460 ahwp was done? R Rated? I thought he never gave out an actual dyno number?

Nothing TO spill, it was a custom TME tune by Marco. Aggresive timing, more than than just a lot of boost so low end was awesome, especially in advanced, (no slouch at the top)!

It never bogged off the line, actually it was more like being shot of a cannon! http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

I think you drove it before the 2nd tune

Did Marco tune it on the dyno?
