Hello!

I am new to the world of car modding and I was wondering what you guys were doing to mod your cars. I want to start modding and would like to see what I could do to my car without risking any long term damage or massive explosions? I have a 2007 Volvo S60 2.5T so where could I start?

Thanks and have a great day!

It would be best to get your car to stage 0 first before modding.

After you get the car in order then you can benefit from some upgrades.

I would start with a 3"downpipe. Bigger turbo and tune.

Mirroring what @Vincevolvo said, stage 0 first, make sure it's up to best possible condition before anything else.

Otherwise depends on what you want and where you want to go (and how much $ you wanna spend).
- Suspension upgrades help
- Without upgrading anything major, a stage 1 tune will liven the car up, would of course be improved more with hardware upgrades
- Brake/wheel upgrades

Mine was stock until recently...

Last week I had an exhaust put in the car (stock downpipe) and had it tuned. It's now making 252hp and 370nm, and sounding very good :D
