Just got my car. Never was into cars til this one. I am researching but why try an reinvent the wheel. All u experts must know the cheapest fastest way to get from stage 0 to stage one. What did u do to your car?

Thanks a lot I'm really loving this car but want more acceleration and speed.

See if you can find a canadian importer.

or here's an old ebay listing for a garrett in canada:

Thanks a whole bunch for your help and links. I live in canada manitoulin island. My wife is jealous and tells me that I love my car more than I love her. I gad a quick reply something about the amount of upgrades available for a volvo...we'll u get the drift. There are so many things. Thinking of starting out with the k n air filter system.

There us a k@ n induction kit that is half the price.....I'm left confused what the difference is. Both claim to add 14.1 hp,0ne is a system and one is an induction kit any feedback

The I loved that muffler u sent be the ecocat. Then the interco0ler.

After that is kinda like the evolve ecu chip . This may take me a year to work up to the chip.

Anymore advice links are welcomed thanks for the help

Ik claims are always exaggerated. Get one with a cold air feed not enginr bay. I ghink they improve top end breathing a bit others think they are pointless and youre best just changing the oem paper filter regularly.
