At least on the X70 series, the turbo's had CBV's as opposed to diverter valves. Not 100% sure on S40's, but I'd assume it's also CBV.<p>It's not too hard to fab up a blanking plate...

Re: (jdsr917)

I have the choice of a Greddy Type S, Greddy Type RS, or a Synapse... think ima go with the Type RS and then try the S to see which sound i like better. For the boost levels ill be at both will suffice.

Re: (BtownVolvo)

RS is from my Integra i parted out so i know what it sounds like, its pretty aggressive. The S has a nice high pitch to it under full load which is kinda cool. Either way the flanges are the same so is easy to swap.<p>With the S40's they come factory with a fuel cut in between shifts with the manual trans. So when you dump the metered air the engine wont see that rich condition and should run fine. Ive had a long discussion with lucky at IPD and he shared similar ideas.<p>Either way ill be tuned on AEM sounds like so we can adjust for this. Probably run an inline MAF with the upper charge pipe as well so would be totally safe.

Re: (atl_cruisin)

Was going to be my first choice but decided might as well use what i already have instead of dropping another 200$. Good luck with your install <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
