    I am guessin the 2001 T5 models was when they introduced the 2.5 T5 in the S60 and the V70, or am i wrong..

    Surely there is something that can be done to the non-ME7 1998 C70 to get 400bhp..

    I WANT..

    I also assume they change to some kind of hybrid 19T with different internals, larger system exhaust and a larger different intercooler, possibly a different inlet manifold for airflow

    I thought the S60 T5's still used the 2.3litre engine and the 2.5's are the low pressure turbo models?

    Their must be some change in the rods on the engine on that one as a 1998 car can easily be mapped for that power but the engine would fall to bits mainly due to the rods. Unless they have found a new way of getting lots more power without increasing the boost??

    No not yet will be looking to get done in June mate.
    Having to fork out for a new flat roof at the moment so money a bit tight, want other thing done but will have to do in stages.

    You really have to be in the money is no object bracket for something like this !!
    Rules me out then !!! I couldnt afford a T5 new enough to put it on !!
    I bet Guy (V8 Guitar) is making enquiries though !
    Just remember mate you need that new central heating system from me more than 400BHP for the car.

    I think 400bhp needs to be approached with care. I assume you have to sign a disclaimer that when you doe in the car your family will not sue. I think if anyone is thinking about this, they price up the cost of coilovers and a large brake conversion. In addition you need to book the lotus engineers for a day to make a custom set up.

    Got to say I like the idea but the only Volvo I would considering doing it to would be the S60/V70 R due to the AWD system.

    One of the reasons I never used my C70 in the winter months was because it was undriveable in even just damp conditions, would happily start spinning the front wheels at 60mph in 5th just trying to overtake stuff!
