    Anything above 2 bar!!..lol..when it comes to turbos it’s all about what you want..with mine I told them I wanted an hybrid which looks exactly like the standard turbo but has larger/stronger internals with double vained impellers meaning more boost that shouldn’t go beyond the capabilities of the stock internals albeit the intercooler...you tell em what your expectations are and they will tell you what you need.. :)

    Its hard not to envy on your luck to meet the right people, every time i as a customer come to a random company or similar asking for a service i just get the worst treatment regardless of what it is. It's like im a scam magnet even for the good businesses (guinea pig for the "bad" in general).

    I guess I am fairly fortunate to know people when it comes to the car..that old adage again..”it’s not what you know,its who you know “...lol

    It's a shame honestly that i still haven't found some tuning shop i can trust + the mild discrimination of owning the most boi-ricer car in history doesn't really help me get serious answers from people, especially since 90% of the mods cost like the car itself lol.

    lol..I don’t have that problem..here in England Volvo drivers are perceived has old men who are past it and the cars themselves not very sporting!...The AudI and BMW crew can’t believe their eyes when they look in their rear view mirror and all they can see is my number plate ..so funny lol..
    Don’t bring cost into it!...if you like the car then spend some dollar cos you’ll be the one enjoying it..My mate thinks I’m daft putting money into my Volvo but I like the car..he thinks I should invest in a BMW535 twin turbo diesel..they’re just short of 300BHP standard and there’s a bloke in Scotland who can get well over 500BHP and over 700ftlb of torque out of them making them a M5 destroyer..but those cars are known for being fast whereas my Volvo isn’t..:)

    I just feel its unfair to give up on your favorite car just because it doesnt fit into the generic sleeper/tuner/racer profile. After constantly being shut down on multiple occasions by tuning garages for the same reason you said "why invest in that junk" i just gave up.

    I really like my car and it's in really good condition, i just want to keep it until it falls apart with no chance of repair. My brother used to work in a garage really far from me and ill contact them to see if they can help me out sometime in the future. No rest for the wicked i guess lol
