Help me out here guys, tell me I can take a Volvo S40 with exhaust.
Him: 2007 Volvo S40 "T5" 2.5 5cyl turbo AWD, weighing in at about 3100lbs, similar weight to me, and he has exhaust (cat-back, I think), K+N intake, and lowered suspension, that's about it.
Me: 2005 WRX, Stage 2'd OTS Cobb map...and check my other mods. I would like to think I'm putting at least 220 to the wheels.
The S40 puts down about 227hp stock (crank), so that's about exactly the same as my car stock. I doubt his exhaust and intake have put him up 30hp like he claims (he says 250hp) - he's never put it on a dyno and probably has no idea what he's actually putting to the wheels.
Everyone keeps telling me how "ridiculously fast" it is.... I wonder if they've ever rode in a Stage 2+ WRX, much less an STi or 06 WRX+ tuned....
Anyone ever run into any fast Volvos out there?
