Re: Down and Up pipes (Jayam)

Yes, I meant the new S40 and V50.

According to TME in sweeden the manifold is a high restriction point for the T5 or 2.5T S60's, when upgranding these they change the manifolds for the Volvo "R" cars manifold, it has much better flow. The S40-V50 turbo engines use the same block as the S60's engines, that is why I recommend to verify this before changing a DownPipe and getting not much improovement.

You can't do a drop in replacement of the R manifold on this engine - the turbo is integrated so you'd need to figure out how to handle all of that as well.
