How fast is a 850 Turbo?

How to go faster, stop quicker, and turn harder. Chips, exhaust, larger turbos, bigger/slotted/drilled rotors, high performance brake pads, manual boost controllers, performance shocks/struts/springs, airbox mods and more! Also discussion on HID and Xenon lights, aftermarket foglights and other exterior lighting.

Find the cause of the stumble and you've found your missing power, but I'm out of ideas on the stumble.
Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.

Thanks for your help!
I will keep looking - fixing stuff is way cheaper than tuning anyways ;)

Everything I had recently done to my '96 Turbo wagon was using Volvo parts, except for the Silicone hoses, and vacuum lines. I did add the R ECU as well, also from a '96 855R.
Granted, the 3" bore intake is from an N/A, and I added a Snabb, 3" tube to the turbo from the MAF, and the other silicone adapter to the three inch throttle body.

See this link.

It was fast before I did this. It is now a bit scary. Huge smiles though, as I have mentioned before.
