I've got a friend who has a S80 2.9. As we all know, it is not the quickest car on the road. Is there anything that can be done to the engine? I have searched for chips, but I have only found chips for the Turbocharged engines, such as the T6. I believe a K&N Filter may add .0000002 hp

Thanks for the help...

Normally aspirated? A chip isn't going to do much even if you find one. There's not a lot you can do that'll give you much of a gain if you aren't ready to throw down big cash, and even then, I don't think there's a heck of a lot for this motor.

Correct...the only company that I am aware of is S.A.M. in Sweden. But the gains are not worth the investment.

Just upgrade to a 2002 S80 2.9; HUGE difference!
