Hi there
Nice looking S60 :) looks like you keep it real nice !
What version is it and is this your first car ?
Just make sure all the basics done, like good tyres, no water leaks from the cooling system,oil changes, good to hear you have done the brakes.
How are the strut tops? how many miles has she done ?

Regards Daz :D

Before upgrades..
Does the car shake @ idle?
If it does, first think I would do is subframe bushings and lower & upper engine mounts.. I just did this to my car and am amazed at the difference.. car feels new.

As for upgrades..
Sway bars..
HD sway bar links..
Aftermarket TCV valve (Will modulate faster than original, as original may be gummed up)
with 180k on the clock, the turbo probably could use a rebuild.. and you could get it enlarged a little (not to much with 2.5t stock block)
ARD tune

I think with just those items you'd notice biggest changes for the money..

what other upgrades would you guys recommend with getting a larger turbocharger for best results?

Larger downpipe, higher flowing exhaust, larger fuel injectors, etc. and tune to take advantage of higher flowing compressor. It really depends on the turbo you plan to use and then we can offer more specific suggestions.
