Hey all,<p>I am very close to pulling the trigger on a 99 t5A with only 88,000 miles, but I have a few questions.<p>1. What type of suspension to should I run to get a firmer, sportier ride?<br>2. What type of bumpers are used on the so-called s70R's all over google images and where can I get them?<br>3. How can I run dual exhaust like this? (http://www.tuningfever.fr/pics-med-9338-235689-volvo-s70-r.jpg)<br>4. What kind of transmission should I purchase for a manual swap, and where might I go about getting it...and for how much?<p>All this is appreciated guys. My first car was an s70, unboosted. I loved it, but not the lack of power. I just totalled my M3 and honestly, the s70 is the only other vehicle that was as dear to me. <p><br>Thanks,<br>Chase <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">

1. IPD Springs 1.75 and Konis <br>2. Darylwaltrip Honda Volvo = Ask to speak to jamie or don.<br>3. Custom make / at fab shop<br>4. Manual swap kits sold on VS run around $1000+shipping. <p>Issue will be custom retune wich isnt happening right now. <p>If you going to manual swap your car get a 98 wich is alot easier since all you have to do is buy a used manual ECU and you dont have to worry about any ETM BS.<p>1998 > All <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>I have done over 6 manual swaps so far and the first to do one on a P2 car <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
