aquiring a 94 850 US model(no turbo, no glt)<BR>My question is what is its weight, HP&tourqe #'s and what should I look for in problems etc?<P>Mind you I am a BMW6 series guy use to approx 190-200 hp and tons of spirited driving. I know the 850 is onlt a 2.3ltr (?) 5 cyclnder car. I'm wondering if anyone has installed a supercharger like powerdyne etc and if so, what sort of numbers might I be looking at?

Hey, why buy the non turbo if you just want more power? The non turbo is a 2.4L and i dont think there would be any superchargers for it....since there is a turbo variant.<P>weight...heavy<BR>horsepower 168???? i dont know<P>Pete

Hes right... you really should opt for the turbo (unless its to late) Otherwise your stuck to handling upgrades and maybe NOS kit for decent power gains. <p>[This message has been edited by turboale (edited 03-11-2002).]

The non-turbo 850s are either 2 litre or 2.5 litre at that vintage, I hope you've got the 2.5, since the 2 litre is IMO rather underpowered.<P>2.4 LPTs are in the later 70 series shells<BR>- and to forestall any incorrect comments, ALL 850 and 70 series engines are 5 cylinders.<P>1994 specs. are probably more lavish for US cars - I'm sure yours will have air conditioning which wasn't that common in UK vehicles, especially 2 litre models.<P>Again, I hope you've got the GLT package that should give you part leather seats, alloys, trip computer and electric goodies.<P>Another good extra to go for (this is for anyone who's considering buying) is the headlamp wash/wipe; not available as an aftermarket kit, even from Volvo.
