I used to have a 2006 S40 T5 AWD 6speed with intake, exhaust and reflash. The car was a 100mph trap car. I now own a stage 2 catted 2006 limited wrx and can tell you that you will put 1 to 2 cars from a 60mph roll all day long.

Volvo uses a Heldex (sp) awd system I believe which is the same for the VW R32. The car launches faily well but doens't rip off the line as hard a wrx can. A stock S40 T5 AWD 6speed traps around 95-96mph range. There is limited support for the S40. There is a much higher support for the S60-R and C30 turbo

The deed is done, and I won. Wasn't flying, but I beat him by about 1.5 seconds in the 1/4
