Please keep us posted on this. An exhaust is the first thing on my list to do! If it can sound good of course. Not many 4cyl. can sound all that great, but I had a Giulia before my S60 and the exhaust I had installed was amazing... Pops, bangs, gurgles, you name it.

First try. Muffler delete
This thing runs LOUD! Unfortunately, I have a harmonic drone from 2500-3000rpm at highway speeds

visualv, was it a “good” loud or a “bad” loud? If you didn’t have the drone, would you keep it?

Added a Flowmaster and it cut the drone right off. Sound real bassy and when the turbo kicks it, the exhaust sings

Nice! :D Do you have the part/model # for the flowmaster you could post? Or a photo?

Am thinking of getting an S60 and looking at exhaust options, haven’t seen many except Heico

@beers we used a Flowmaster FlowFX down from the stock resonator to kill the drone noise. I can barely hear the exhaust cruising at highway speed. Starting from a standstill, you'll hear the turbo spool up and the air rushing out. With gear change, the turbo dump sounds amazing.
It does not sound like any Volvo I've heard at car meets
This is the first stage of mods. We may swap the pipes after the cat to 3" dia, delete the resonator and put something else in.......

Outstanding. The SPA cars certainly don’t have the mods so far like the P3’s, so let the games begin!

Hope someone will make a cold air intake for this

GruppeM makes one for the XC90, pricey in carbon fiber but looks really nice (VIVA carries it in the US). Don’t see anything for the SPA S60 like this yet.
