Eventually I would have to do a manual swap because the 6-speed was not going to be able to handle this hp for much longer... I tried to sell the R as it sat but of course Volvo community rather spend 20 -$30,000 on their builds where they could have bought my entire R for probably 13000 cash...well no one bought it so I had an idea to list mods on my car and that's sold real quick so then I decided to make a solid daily driver s60r for me, and also if someone wants to buy it is much easier to sell it all muzzled.

So like....are you gonna do a manual one some time?

You'll still be in here posting weird/impressive mods, right?

I literally found out he was selling it a few weeks ago. A huge shame since i would have bought it by now. Well whoever has all of your parts is going to make a beast.

Sad to hear that you give up on your car. I got inspiration from you to make best build with custom style. Hope you change your mind or re-think again

I was wondering why you swapped it out. Did the old engine pop?

thanks, i think im falling in love with it all over again...it just needs lill bit larger turbo , lill bit bigger injectors and a FMIC.

That's right decision. Volvo will never lose to BMW Benz and the others if you drive the volvo. 5555
