Hi all pretty new on here. Had my 2005 S40 2.0d s for a while now and nit done much to it. Had it remaped to 178bhp and 278 ft/lb torque a while ago. Having a car day today. Got to fit a new rear hub and then fitting coilovers. Ordered a new biger intercooler too and an uprated turbo in preperation for a live map in 3 weeks. Also putting 17" S60-R wheels on.

Dang it they should have brought diesels over here... that horsepower to torque ratio is awesome.

my volvo is getting to much attention lately and to much money spent on it :p but never mind

I just ordered a GROM MOST aux input for £109.99 off ebay from a proper shop ( they sell if for £199 in there shop :/ ) anyway ive ordered that and it will arrive Saturday
ANNNND
my intercooler kit arrived today :

going to get the old one off on Saturday morning and try and get a bit of hard pipe made up to take the MAP sensor the same day. if not ill mock up the pipework for the MAP and get the pipe done during the week and fit it then :)


cars getting there slowly. callipers have been painted and the Volvo stickers have arrived so will be stuck on and laquered over this weekend .
also ordered the uprated turbo. but not sure on when its going to be fitted ( as the live map is £700 ish ) :/

lmfao. exhaust is a stock stealth pipe at the mo. so nothing sticking out the back. and it doesnt really smoke to be honest. i think the PFF ( particulate fuel filter ) stops that :p

Undecided what to do about the intercooler. Got all the bumper off and intefcooler off. And it is actually longer than the new one by about 3-4" but 2 complete rows shorter. So ive put all the stock stuff back on ( relocated the horns whilst i was at it) and cant decide wether to keep the stock one or fit the new One. Will i see any gains with the new one. Its about 1 " thicker and has larger pipework ( hard pipes with silocone joints)

Keep it or send it back and spend the money on something else?
