Great site!! I'm glad to see another Volvo board pop up. Ok, here's what I'm wanting to do. I have a white 95 850 GLT with pretty much everything stock besides the air filter (K&N) and the sound system (ridin w/ 2 JL W3 10's). I've got some neons under the seat creating a nice blue accent in the floor, and a black light mounted in front of the dome lights on the roof. I want to try to get my baby lookin and SOUNDING good. Unfortunately Volvo's aren't as supported as Honda's so my choices are limited. My first question is about exaust. I want to get my exaust sounding good, NOT like one of those 4-cyl which have an exaust which makes it sound like a pissed off bumble bee, but I want an exaust which has a nice rumble about it. Honestly, the sound is more important than the gains (if you haven't noticed, I'm more into show than actuall performance), But I still need to up the HP. Besides the exaust, are there any other upgrades I could make such as changing the air filter to a cone setup? Also, where can I get styling products such as air dams, spoilers, engine covers? I've seen stuff on IPD's site but honestly I think they are too expensive and I don't like their style. <P>So to sum it up:<P>-What is a good exaust system and how much will it run?<BR>-Who has styling (air dams, spoilers, etc) for the 850?<BR>-What are some performance upgrades besides exaust? (Should I consider a cone setup?)<P>Thanks guys...<P>-nick

Cone setup is to loud and you will need to set up air flow for it as it will be behind the batt getting hot air from the engine compartment. My SCT system has a deep and low good sound. The sound of power! And do a ECU upgrade, I have IPD Motronic 4.4+

In my above post, I typed out a website address incorrectly. The 1st site, which I have listed as <A HREF="http://www.ipd.com," TARGET=_blank>www.ipd.com,</A> should be <A HREF="http://www.ipdsua.com." TARGET=_blank>www.ipdsua.com.</A> Sorry.
