But extra poop that doesnt belong to the Car from Atspeed I can hasz :lol:

Not sure whos worse right now Evolve or Atspeed at this point .

Simpley neither of them know a damn thing about volvos thats for sure.

Clutch used ?
Motor - Can a 05,06,07 be installed in a 04 ?
Built or not ?
Sleaved or not ?
Crank work done ?
Turbo Used ?

So let me hear

Re: Evolve FTL IPD FTW - This will be the Car that IPD will Build and Evlove Couldnt (o2k)

I thought Boosted was up there, Discom (now Blot's car IIRC), and one or two other folks had some nice power.

I still think going w/ the T5 bottom-end w/ the, well, late T5 or R head is the way to go. Maybe sleeves can do the trick for you though??

The motors should be interchangeable...

You crazy!

Angle gear plans?

My buddy's '04 Audi RS6 Plus wagon has 480hp (stock) and it's a hellish ride (UK car, never sold here). Matching that will turn the R into a proper monster, as long as it can keep its drivetrain together. FWD only maybe?

You're the man Justin. Is that in your garage now?

I don't think sleeving is necessary on the 2.4 or 2.3 block. From what I have read only the stock 2.5 R block seems to be prone to cylinder wall cracking. If you keep the 2.5 I believe chuck used Darton sleeves.

You already know the weak spots in the 2.3 which are much easier to fix by just replacing rods and such. The 2.3 is bullet proof once the weak spots are addressed.

Any idea how to make an '04R ECU mate with a 2.3 block?

No need to be in my garage
Thats only for killing volvos LOL

Nah matt lives about 10 mins from me and he has way more cool tools then I do , so going to do all the work at his place.

Agreed my plan and his is to use the 2.3 block - ( I have a few spares)

Now how to get that to work with the newer car is the question and kind of leaving that up to IPD to figure out


Rest of it is easypeasy

fingers crossed that IPD can figure it out. The newer R ECU is a little finicky.
I would think you could use the Tune for a Garret thats used on the older cars just done in the newer format.

When you talk to him next time could you get specifics on the coilovers? No 4C might not be so bad if I could drop the R in the weeds with some KWs.
