Building on Fast Friday #11 Tune a Low Pressure Turbo? and Fast Friday #13 Tune My Ride: 98 V70 AWD, Lucky goes all-in on a wild low-pressure turbo car -- a 2007 XC70.

Missed the most recent? Quin's Monster S60 AWD (He crashed it not long after the project was complete :cry: , and it was a 100% loss. He and his passengers were ok. Volvo safety meets Volvo tuning?)

Stage 3 Tuning a Low Pressure Turbo

[quote]To start on the project, we headed over to Portland Speed Industries’ Dynojet chassis dynamometer to get some baseline numbers and to verify that all the stage 0 items had been completed. Starting with a solid foundation is key; it is absolutely imperative to go through the vehicle and make sure all wear items are in OEM new condition or better before trying to make additional power. This is so important to the performance of these cars that the Volvo community has coined a term for it: Stage 0. Thanks to diligent maintenance by CKA motorsports the XC arrived prepped and ready for some upgrades![/quote]

So much good information. I wish I lived in Pacific Northwest (at least so far as my interest in Volvos is concerned), it seems like such a hotspot for Volvos. Denver isn't bad per se, but it would be great to have resources like ARD, Ipd, etc in my backyard.
