Re: C70 300+hp... how? (After_Shock)

Just wait for the BMW M3 with convertible hardtop (out next year?). If you bump up the power too much you will get way too much front wheelspin, and moving to AWD is not possible according to the swedespeed article on the C70.

300hp from that engine is no problem. New Chip, filter, injectors, DP, exhaust and maybe a turbo upgrade. Then you will have 300++.

This T5 engine is the low pressure version of the S60R engine. Therefore, I agree with T5_awd that you don't need a new engine to accomplish 300hp. However, it could be a dangerous beast without AWD...

T5_awd unfortunately its not that simple and the engine in the S40/V50 and C70 has absolutely nothing to do with the S60 R engine, its in fact based on the 2.5T engine in the S60 and V70's with the soft internals and low pressure turbo, also as the compression ratio is also completely wrong 300+bhp is not possible on this standard engine.

The other lowpressurturbo's can also be tuned to +-310hp... so it must be possible with this lowpressure T5 too...<p>

255-265 at the crank is all it gives with the stock turbo and manifold.<br>When using anything lower than 93 gasoline you won't even get there.

Re: C70 300+hp... how? (BenES)

In the UK this engine can be tuned to about 260bhp ish but thats on 98RON only, take it off that and go back to 95RON and struggles to get past 230bhp.<p>As mentioned this engine is Fordised so to speak so it could well be possible to push it past 300bhp with heavy modifications but I wouldnt like to guess how long it would last.

My apologies for the moment, I was the guy who ignited the fire, not T5_awd. However, I learned a lot from the very informative discussion here. Thanks for the correction, guys. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: C70 300+hp... how? (yellow)

Sorry T5 clicked on the wrong reply button!<p>Anyways it still cant get to 300bhp, even on 98RON fuel it struggles to get past 260bhp, modifying the turbo and all the exhaust etc will add a bit but I have no doubt that sticking one that claims 300bhp on a rolling road wouldnt get past 280bhp in real terms, plus pushing this engine is not a good idea as Ford have done the good old cost cutting exercise on it,

If i'm correct the new Focus ST (europe) uses the t5 engine from the s40/v50/c70, and there's already a german tunner that can do the 300hp. I think it's called wolf.

Re: C70 300+hp... how? (comradeM)

Since the same engine is used in the S40, you may want to head over to the S40 forums to get an idea of where to start. I'm keeping my S40 stock, but from what I've read it's not as easy as it was once thought.

Re: (Nebor)

Money no problem , I'd go with an RS4 Cabrio, but the C55 amg would also be nice, M3 conv. perhaps, but 300+ hp out of the C70 ??? hmm, seems like 275-280 is about the upper limit. check sct and bsr . and 300 plus hp on a fwd will be interesting and perhaps useful after 3rd gear. since this is the same drive tran as the S40 T5, I'd check out the S40/V50 forums.
