Well, you could almost guess what that means. Not sure if I want to bad mouth the shop anymore...I'm just tickled. What else can I ask for?<BR>257 FWHP @ 10 psi of boost for a car that is not even break in...and still got more room for performance increase. I'm almost scared to drive this car.<BR>But again, NO...I'm very happy I will get to drive this car soon.<P>LONG LIVE VOLVO~!<P>

Damn! It's about time! So do you have the car back for good? (wasn't sure since you said "will get to drive this car soon", but then I thought maybe you meant DRIVE the car, as in without restrictions on boost, RPM, etc). OK, when's the next GTG?<P>

257HP is a pretty amazing number going to the front wheels. What did the torque curve and numbers look like? Even though I don't know anything about it, why is this car such a mystery? <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"> It sounds as if it would make a great story!<P>-Drew

Michael,<BR>Yeah...just need to get the $$$ straightened out before I can drive the car home.<P>George,<BR>Yup...let me know whenever you want to do the photo shoot.<P>Drew,<BR>It was never a mystery, you just never kept up with the story. I've mentioned pretty much the whole list here once. Search for it. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"> I'll let everyone knows when I get more info.

I'll get him to highlight it all in the article <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif">. I am busy this weekend, but perhaps next week.<P>BTW man, I know where there's a wrecked S70 AWD that you could source the underpan and drive system from. <P>George

George,<BR>Sounds like a plan, I should have my hood repainted with the new grille by then. Hopefully even get the sound system installed before the photo shoot.<BR>AWD...nah, the car is heavy enough, I doubt the AWD will be worth my effort. Plus, I'm more than broke now..way beyond broke. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/frown.gif"><BR>I know there are 3 or 4 AWD C70 in Volvo headquarter in Sweden.<P><BR>
