Hi folks... first... nice site! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><BR>I'm curious to what sort of performance you folks are getting out of your S60's? Specifically the turbo model. More to the point, how fast are they stock and can you chip it? Are there aftermarket chips out for these yet? 0-60 mph, and 1/4 mile times? <P>Also, how is the suspension? Are you guys upgrading the suspensions?<P>I currently drive a VW Passat 1.8T... and I have upgraded my wheels and tires (16" Borbet B with 225/50 RE730's) as well as chipped from Garret (200 hp/245 lbs. torque) She's very peppy, just not off the line... but on the highway...watchout! I also need to upgrade the springs and shocks as they come mushy from the factory (they think we all like the Caddy ride here).<P>I am seriously considering the turbo'd S60 as my future hotrod... er, car. But I want something I can tweak a bit.<P>Also, what model/brand of turbo's are in the S60 5 cylinders?<p>[This message has been edited by the dude (edited 10-18-2001).]

Welcome to Swedespeed! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>Try posting this question in the S60 forums down below which is specific to the S60, you will get better responses. You can just do a cut and paste. This area is more for general Volvo questions. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>-Drew

FYI,<P>I get 7.9 Seconds on my V70 2.4T (which has 200hp. or 50 less than the T5).<P>Not bad for a 3400lb wagon.<P>
