I know its been discussed before and there were issues with compressions ratios. But just a few questions for anyone who may have answers or has tried this.<p>-will the 2.4t manifold bolt right on to the 2.4 NA S60<p>-what are the differences between the engines?<p>-could you then just use the 2.4t parts to turbo the 2.4 NA car with a proper chip tune?

Re: Turbo charging a non-turbo S60 (Heimpel)

Different engine.<br>You may as well sell it to buy a turbo as the cost will be more (to try and turbo yours properly)

thats what i began thinking and started considering until i realized with the stuff i have done to my car, it seemed as if it would cost alot to get a T5 to look the same as my car. Cosmetically I love my car, just wish it was a little faster which is why i started considering used parts off of a 2.4t, but you are saying they will not work?

i believe that it will work. <p>but i agree that in order to make it work, you will have to deal with a lot of stuff and big expenses. <p>and in the end you will probably feel like "damn, instead of spending so much time & energy & money for an aftermarket turbo upgrade with still a questionable reliability, i should have directly sold this car and bought a turbo version nice and easy".

Re: (Heimpel)

oh and btw, your car looks really good. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>what have you done with the stock parts that you have replaced? like the wheels, bumpers etc.... <br>if by any chance you're still keeping these, you might as well put them back on, and sell your S60 as a fully stock car and transfer your goodies to your new T5? would be cheaper that way i guess...

you are talking about turbocharging an engine that has NOT been built for turbocharging (pistons, rods, compression ratio, etc.)<p>even if you do throw a turbo into that system, dont expect to run more than 4-5 psi otherwise you are going to be asking for trouble.

Honestly it is more trouble than it is worth. You will have to find a place that will remap your ecu to the specs of the new turbo plus if the car is still under warranty, it will void it if the new turbo causes any problems which honestly it probably will. My point is it is alot of trouble and is usually only for the most hardcore enthusiasts with wads of cash to spend but of course it can be done if that is what you really want. IMO an EVOLVE downpipe <br>exhaust, ecu upgrade and k&n filter will give you very similar numbers without half the cost of upgrading turbos, plus all of EVOLVE's products are warranted for at least a year or more. Your taking a big chance with a new turbo.

I think you speak for everyone on this board. Very good point. Esp. since while "modding" is cool, it does affect reliability and/or possibly warranty. If i were to ever buy a used car, it must be 100% stock. (maybe one exception: rubber mats)

yeah point taken, i knew that and left all mechanical parts stock. Only cosmetic upgrades were made. I intended to resell the car so didnt want to even put an intake on it. I put an exhaust on it only because it is more cosmetic and sound than performance and it only does good for the engine.

I am not sure of the feasability but how about finding a wrecked turbo s60 at a wrecking yard and gutting the whole engine compartment to be a donor for yours. That at least would run well when done and might not cost THAT much.

well for about $2k you can find a 2.4t engine... that would be alot cheaper than buying a new car and for sure cheaper than trying to turbo. I wounder if it would mount right in and would the old tranny work? I had actually been giving that some thought.
