I have a V40 and I put on 18inchers an IPD exuast, springs, struts and also a heico body kit, What else is there to do besides a chip?? I got the styling done now I want power.

Definitely look into doing a downpipe and cat, this will free up your turbo a lot and allow it to spool much faster, not to mention give you around 15 more hp. I'd say next worry about a chip, i've heard that upsolute has cracked the ECU code and maybe PES which is great for the other cars.<BR>The guy you'll want to talk to is Carlos, he knows all about these cars. Not too sure if anybody's done a turbo upgrade, but i'm sure it's possible.<P>Good luck dude, be a 1.8T Killa!!!

Sorry I wrote that wrong I meant a strut brace and sway bars. What sort of brakes are there cause the v40s brake suck I have only 26000 miles on my car and its my second time I need to get my brakes changed. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/frown.gif"><P>
