Hey everyone. I am new here and I joined so that I could learn how to fix and maintain my 850 T. One of the things I want to do is make my car like this one: http://www.putfile.com/media.php?n=512_overloaded850. I am a total noob at this stuff (Hey im only 16!! I'm tryin to get a head start at upgrading and maintaing my volvo). If you could help me, preferably how to make my car like the one in the vid, I would bow to you and call you Jesus! Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

That is one sick car!!!!

It will take about $30.000 to get it like that.

It takes alot of money to make it like that.

I saw one that had power kind of like that it is owned by a miami dolphin.

He had $20,000 into just the engine.

Now keep me in the loop please.

Just how would my S80 2.0T stack up against this machine? Now, be honest


Stop laughing too

Yours would be like compairing a 3 cylinder to a V8.

That thing spins the tires after going about 25 MPH and hitting the gas hard.Then it keeps spinning no problem.
Try that with your car and see what happens.

I hate to say it but that thing will eat my car and spit it out for breakfast.

To start off I would do the IPD computer upgrade and an exhaust.
Then maybe mods to the turbo.
The work on the suspension.

That other car I would almost bet it is bored like .30 to .40 over stock.Then has ported and polished head,Worked valves and workings.

I will also bet the turbo Is a huge one pushing around 25Psi boost.

There is an aircraft place in Georga that works on the Volvo engine and makes pretty good power out of them.I wish I knew the name but I don't.

Check in the general section I made a post with links to sites.Check it out for the parts and other ideas.

Err, sorry Tech!


But I kinda find the wheelspin a COOL
feature of the car.

But of course, you're right:-
1) It'll cost $$$ to always have to keep changin tyres every 3 months or so... (Psst, get imported branded second-hand ones - they are cheap, have at least 80% thread left and great with grips = Pirelli PZeros are also available. Sold specifically for this 'sick' purpose!
)
2) It'll cost a lot more $$$ to make sure the engine is up to mark.

We have a member here who drives an 854R and is able to do just EXACTLY the SAME thing - a WHEELSPIN at the THIRD or FOURTH gear, while in MOTION!

But of course, we don't call him Jesus.
We call him Guy with $$$.



Anyway, why do you need to do such thing anyway?

Come, come now Auckland...


You DON'T need that kind of POWER. It's only for SHOW-OFFs...


And I am not laughing either.

I don't really need to such a thing, but I mean come on!! That kind of power is just unholy! But since it's gonna cost so much, I'm prolly not even gonna get close. I will most likely end up just getting a few upgrades, like the ones you mentioned before, ampangbear.

Ok, I got some questions. First, does anyone make an aftermarket turbo manifold? Does anyone make an exhaust, or should I go the custom route? Also, about that compter upgrade, is it just an ECU reflash, or is it something else? Where can I get that computer upgrade? Thanks for the help in advance.

Ok, I followed each and every link on that links to sites page, but I didn't see any new turbo manifolds. Maybe I didn't look hard enough?
