I'm not a Volvo fan by any means, but goddamn that thing is sexy.

its FAST too.

i seent it

Slasher 11-17-2011 11:51 AM

Thanks guys!
it hasn't been an easy car to mod as aftermarket options are slim at best and what is out there blows up a budget pretty quick.
next step is SPEC 2+ and SMF. parts are ~$1500 + book time is 10 hours labor (i do not have the skill set to do this myself <sadface>).
rolling quarters as quick as i can.....

Got a vid clip of the exhaust?

kunt_masha 11-17-2011 09:13 PM

Post your dyno sheet... The torque curve resembles a cummins

The only video I have at the moment is one of the dyno pulls. I really need to do a drive by and rev video. Exhaust is probably very subtle compared to many on here but i really like that about it. The turbo does like to scream though.

@ k Marsha - I gotta find those run sheets. Iirc the torque jumped to over 300 at like 2200 rpm...

BTW - if any of you other Volvo modders need to swap in a bigger DP you will need three things.
1. a Jamaican
2. a TON of patience
3. one of these "fishing poles":

OBEEWON 11-18-2011 11:50 AM

That is the greatest thing ever conceived.

PS. This thing is faster than a S54 E46.

Slasher 11-19-2011 11:33 PM

Love this bike

Slasher 11-28-2011 01:02 PM

My low note horn died so while replacing did the horn relocation:

while i had the bumper off i decided to do a custom intake using spare intake parts from my brothers NSX:

also added homemade screen to my Elevate rear bumper opening:

kunt_masha 11-28-2011 01:13 PM

I like that intake ducting!

I plan on doing something similar but havent gotten to that point... May be scoping out your car at lunch

Slasher 11-28-2011 04:31 PM

Thank you K-Masha.

ducting was from an early Y2K NSX performance parts company called RM Racing. i do not believe they are in business any longer. The outside of it is a "clothlike" material and the inside is coated and ribbed with wire for bendability.
it basically feeds into the plastic intake piece under my hood (see horn relocation pic - snorkel piece with the jegs sticker) which shoves the air into the intake box.
May eventually replace the box with CCI but thus far testing indicates box with sport filter is ideal over CCI (and def HAI...errr....cone filter) until jumping up to K16 or similar.
whatever route i may or may not end up doing...this cold air collection apparatus will remain.

This thing is SICK..... I LOVE it !!!
