Hi guys. New to the forum. Just got a 2008 S40 T5 Geartronic.<p>Whats max that the auto box can handle before causing problems?<br>Seen the GARRETT Volvo C30 T5 Turbo Kit - GT2871R 400HP kit and wonder if one can run it in a mild state of boost. <br>I dont want to race with it, but it would be nice if it was a sleeper car in the neighberhood <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>I would like to run atleast 320 Flywheel HP on stock internals + Intercooler upgrade. Currently on 260 HP.

Re: What is max Flywheel HP S40 T5 Geartronic can handle ? (I8AGTI)

As long as you have a programable ecu or somethign such as a RICA ppc unit to change your boost setting you can run it at whatever you want. and i hear the block can take 400hp b4 problems but its all talk for now....

Should be fine for what you are looking for HP wise. Thats gonna be in the 300whp range which from stock isnt that big of a % hp increase. Just going to require a tune. Im not a fan of these over the counter tunes but seem to work although being conservative.
