Happy to see you finally got your C30! Can you post a link for those LED taillights? Thanks:)
Factory tail lights, just LED reverse bulbs. I'll post a link once I'm not on my phone.
congrats! killer color combo
Thanks! But it's too common and is going to change.
Looks amazing link for the bulbs plzzzzz😁
Which bulbs?

This car has an upgraded inlet manifold, focus RS cams, and coilovers. Everything else is the same as my S40 had.

It's an M66 and it's much lighter than the S40, so it's a lot faster off the line and through the turns. The cams make a huge difference above 2800 RPM, but 6 gears also help a lot. Not to mention no torque limiter.

These are H&R coilovers. Great stance, but I want to roll the fenders and lower her a bit more.

Are you going to a K16 turbo? It seems you already have the perfect set-up for it.
Once all the bugs are worked out with the tunes, I will.

The previous owner was planning on a K16, the only thing this car is missing is the turbo itself.

What Hp are you looking at with the big turbo? Are you going to try and run it safe, or try and maximize hp? I would think you would be around 450 at the crank.

The last dyno showed 254hp/332tq at the wheels, but that was before the cams. If/when I go K16, I'll be relatively conservative. I'd like to see over 300whp, which is very realistic. Fastest P1 Volvo in the Western Hemisphere would be a fun title, but many risks.

Though, I'm pretty sure this is one of the fastest K04 P1s in the world right now. The numbers are pretty impressive.

Testing out the Midirs, I think they're going to stay. Not many classic C30s still running on Midirs.

I'll snatch up the first set of 8" wide Midirs that I can find. Really tempted to pull the trigger on some Forgestar F14s 18x8.5, but I love the factory 5 spokes.

It's also dependent on the color... The Midirs may look great or they may completely clash in a few weeks.

My Belle approves of your Belle. :)

If it were any other member using the name Belle might've run them over, but I know you'll do the name proud. ;)

A dear old friend of mine that has (had? Think she sold it) a Polestar C30 had thought about a name along the lines of Blue Belle, but she went with Elsa.

I'll have to keep an eye on SS a bit more, nice to see you keeping the Volvo passion alive.

Thanks for the kind words. Great to see you're still around! Has the S40 been getting any love lately?
