Check out this tuning place in Sweden called BSR. They have 3 different stages for the S60! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P><B><A HREF="http://www.bsrab.se/se/index.html" TARGET=_blank>BSR Tuning Sweden</A></B><P> <IMG SRC="http://www.bsrab.se/bilder/volvo_s60_hela.jpg"> <P><B>Stage 1:</B><BR>Programming AV Chip<BR>Sport Air Filter (Insats/Opti-Flow)<BR><B>299hp/301lb.ft</B><P><B>Stage 2:</B><BR>Programming AV Chip<BR>Sport Air Filter (Insats/Opti-Flow)<BR>BSR Stainless Full-Exhuast System<BR><B>304hp/307lb.ft</B><P><B>Stage 3:</B><BR>Programming AV Chip<BR>Sport Air Filter (Insats/Opti-Flow)<BR>BSR Stainless Full-Exhaust System<BR>BSR Turbo Downpipe and Sport Catalyst<BR><B>320hp/315lb.ft</B><P> <IMG SRC="http://www.bsrab.se/bilder/bsr_4900705.jpg"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://www.bsrab.se/bilder/bsr_4002019.jpg"> <P>-Drew<p>[This message has been edited by InDy (edited 08-06-2001).]

I wonder have any of you had any experience with BSR at all? I don't read Swedish... but the translations were much appreciated.<P>I'm thinking that for ~$800 (US) it could be very worth to replace the computer and the filter... <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>On other "mod" notes... are any of you aware of any way to turn the GPS System into a TV? I know on some BMW 5-Series it's a flip of a proverbial switch in the software on the car.<P>Lastly... who makes the CD changer that Volvo sells in the S60 (with he HU-803)? I would like to buy one, and install it... but I would like to use the pre-run cabling, and after experiencing the joy of adding a CD changer to a SAAB and a VW this way, I never want to try another conversion kit. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>Matthew Krawitz<BR>2001 S60 T5 - Maya Gold<BR>

Matthew,<P>Welcome to Swedespeed! You might want to check the "New V70" forums section, because there is a pretty good discussion on the BSR tuning stages. BSR seems to be a pretty good company from what I understand. I think that the Stage 1 setup will run around $750 dollars or so.<P>To turn the GPS system into a TV, you have to have the TV tuner module hooked up to the Nav System. I think this is only available in Europe right now.<P>The deal with the BMW 5-series is that, if the owner already has the TV tuner module, it costs around $295 to convert it to a working TV while the vehicle is moving. If the owner does not have the TV tuner it costs around $1,100 dollars to have a working TV while the vehicle is in motion. Of course, there is also a company that converts the GPS Nav into a TV and DVD player at the cost of around $4,000 dollars.<P>Lastly, Alpine makes CD changers for Volvo, and your car should already be prewired for that CD changer. The only problem is that you will have to go to the dealer no matter what because they will have to do a software download via VADIS to get the stereo system to recognize the new CD changer. Depending on your dealer, they might do it for free, or they might charge you for the download.<P>I hope this helps!<P>-Drew

This is actually the hardest part-once you get the navi LCD screen patched into the video system (some of the Odysseys come with mobile video systems built in), then you can add other things like a TV tuner, DVD player, Playstation 2, etc., etc. Most of the customized navigational systems I have seen have cost significantly less than $4k for the modifications-for that kind of outlay, you can get a tracking DBS satellite TV receiver that you can mount on your roof, but the radome would look a bit out of place on a S60! :) The Odyssey board is www. odyclub.com-if you are interested, check it out.<BR><P>
