A friend who just bought a bargain S40 off the lot asked me this question, so I thought I would post and get a few opinions. <p>Are there mods or something with chips that give more power to 2.4i without sacrificing warranty or having any neg affects on car?

Re: more power for 2.4i (Charles847)

you might get like 20 more hp with scandinavian car tunings chip intake, exhaust. Volvo will probably Freak Out as in my expiriance they seem to be the least tuner friendly/ warranty out there . <p>For the money, I'd stick with handeling and appearance. for that same 20 hp from sct, you could get some springs and a nice set of wheels and some braces.

Re: more power for 2.4i (V50_T5)

all i have to say is...decals....decals add horsepower so put lots and lots of decals on your sexy v50 and watch it burn rubber down the road ROFL <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0">

The most cost- effective and probably a single way to increase 24i power dramatically. Oh, and speed stripes too <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">
