    your seriously underrated cars thoughts?

    My v70r has limited slip diff and has better suspension than a normal t5 and believe me it can goes round corners just got to feather the throttle as will spin the wheels for a long way if you plant your foot too early

    Choosing and tuning a drag car

    i wasnt talking about rs4's but 5 pot turbo audis of old, rs4's are not turbocharged,and 4wd off the line is best mate http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhwOM7lkCc0&feature=results_video&playnext=1&list=PL0708FBBAF011D752 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmWr9AeDTBg&feature=related...

    your seriously underrated cars thoughts?

    I have mates with t5's or r's with over 450bhp they are serious machines and regularly do track days
  13. t5frankie

    what are the old s40's like?

    what you will have to do is take the ecu out, and send it off to be taken apart and an off the shelf chip be put in, i dont think i know anyone who has a mapped t4, btw i dont think its easy to get at the ecu on those cars

  17. t5frankie

    what are the old s40's like?

    this bloke just doesnt want to listen to those who have been tuning volvos for years, the bloke who runs chiptuning is called adam btw and make sure its not for the newer s40's which can easily be mapped,

    would you be jealous if i said my track car cost me £550? lol
  19. t5frankie

    what are the old s40's like?

    A 4 into 2 into 1 lol exhaust? You obviously ain't listening its not a n/a car, where the tuning is totally different, ill say this once more you cannot map a t4 you have to go piggyback or standalone ecu, talk to Mitchyboy01 on any volvo forum and he'll tell you all about them. Show me who maps...

    what are the old s40's like?

    your seriously underrated cars thoughts?

    Standard its 247 bhp 350 nms torque and weighs 1500 kgs, so 165 bhp per tonne 0-60 6.8 secs and 155mph so mine is about 210 bhp per tonne at the moment, big plans for next year though big Garrett turbo and forged engine

  26. t5frankie

    what are the old s40's like?

    Lol they can't really be mapped, so manual boost controller bigger injectors and larger turbo, rear and front strut braces, EVO brakes

    what are the old s40's like?

    Cos a t4 is a better base to start from
  28. t5frankie

    your seriously underrated cars thoughts?

    Anything with that sort of power is a supercar and there isn't many of them on the road when you are, and even if you saw a proper motor usually they ain't interested in having a play anyway, I mentioned torque first as it has loads look up an rs4's torque figures, my car is only a 2.3, we are...
  29. t5frankie

    what are the old s40's like?

    I just don't see the point of modifying something and ending up with t4 power when you could just buy a t4 which are pretty rapid standard, mptjtpt get a proper volvo like mine not an old banger 850 lol

    what are the old s40's like?

    Just better spec inside and out and better suspension, the 2.0 turbo has a low pressure turbo, I've had one and you wouldn't even know it had one tbh

    your seriously underrated cars thoughts?

    i think people get a massive shock when i blow them away in my volvo, not really come up against anything on the road that has kept up to be honest not with 353lb ft torque and 311bhp @1.3 bar boost can run at 1.5 bar if i wanted. midrange acceleration is awesome on these motors 60-100 in 6 secs

    How to improve performance on my sluggish clio

    there are little gains to be had through modifying a naturally aspirated engine, especially small engines, turbo'd cars is where it's at mate

    a mate of mine has a t4 just put an mbc on and it dyno'd at 245 bhp and 400nms torque
