Hey Guys,<P>While I was surfing Volvospeed's website I decided to check out their links and ran across a very interesting Guy under Enthusiast sites "Volvo 850 R Homepage". <P>His name is Emil and his website is <A HREF="http://www.emilsvolvo.com." TARGET=_blank>www.emilsvolvo.com.</A> Emil has been nice enough to display his car and provide some very detail information on his 850 R mods. <P>I most admit I have not had a hard time locating performance engine parts, but performance transmission upgrades has been a task.<P>Here is a list of some of his tranny mods: valve body, torque converter, super pumps, transmission kits, and transmission oil pan protectors.<P>Can you say wooow!!!<P>:d :p<P>

Hey Austin,<P>Kai and I are talking about the "Homepage" link in his profile, the little face with the envelope next to it, right on top of the post. We're talking about that link.<P>Thanks for Emil's link, though.<P>What are super pumps?<P>

The audio's really nice, what are you comparing it to, Kai? Your car? HAHA... you're biased by your car's superiority <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>Personally, I would have stopped at the Torque Converter... which I have, and it makes a reasonable difference.<P>

It's the modifications of his car that puzzled me, that's all. I hope you can understand what I mean, but maybe not. It's okay. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><BR>

I wonder what that exhaust sounds like...? I have yet to hear the 5cyl with a loud exhaust. The iPd is pretty quiet unless you roll the windows down and then its nothing but nice baaaaassy notes fill the cabin <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">.<BR><P>

But the other night, I was complimented by a friend of mine that it sounds more like a beefy turbocharged 6 cylinder.<P>Not sure....maybe some other members who have heard of my exhaust can tell me. I kinda like how my cousin's 850 now sounds with the SuperSprint dual muffler system.<P>I always thought IPD was supposed to be louder unless comparing to single muffler system by Supersprint, but after I've been driving the car for few days...I now think otherwise.<P>

I can't really remember. I do remember Rob's car having a distinct sound coming from the rather short exhaust system.<P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>I kinda like how my cousin's 850 now sounds with the SuperSprint dual muffler system.</B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>I really liked the sound of that car. Almost a V8-like tone, but not as loud. I was following that car when we had that back roads "cruise", so I got to hear a lot of it. What does it sound like now, and what exhaust did it used to have?<P>

Actually it sounded the best when he only had one Dynomax Ultra Flow on. Pretty deep and muscular tone, but the droning can get to you sometimes.<P>Now the car sounds very refine. A bit too wussy sounding if you ask me. And the some of the mid range power to rest of the high end has greatly decreased. You could feel the car was suffering...or sounded like it. It has hard time to go beyond 4000 rpm, like it's choking or something. The low end torque was no doubt increased, but wouldn't say it was worth it.<P>Well, this Supersprint system was free from my friend Mike, so can't complain. He's the guy who drove that silver V70 T5M to Carlisle last year.<BR>
