If there were a few more people tuning the T4's a T4 vs T5 day would be interesting.
    I'll be up for it when I've got mine sorted!

    I have been revolving around the S/V40 site for over 2yrs now as i had my T4 and the amount of trouble with 2000- standard 2litre T3, T5 coded engines is terrible. The liners are so thin due to increased bore size from 1855 to 1948cc that the gasket blow if you use the power a lot it is progress!! from the start of the Volvo / Ford.... new engines at 90,000 wow and a Volvo......i would never ever go near the Ford induced Volvo`s. Rattling VVT......We know from our own V70 T5`s that after 1999/2000 the changes to the cars really did put up the cost of owning one and also reduced there reliability. That is why i bought a pre ME7 model.

    Only my opinion.

    I can't say about the early phase 1 t4s, but my phase 1.5 had better handling than most other standard volvos i'v been in.

    My car was remapped, de-cat and bmc induction and had done 128k with no problems, in fact it was running smoother than when i originally bought it.
    With those small mods, my automatic t4 could still do 0-100mph in less than 15secs, that was gps speed as well, not just going by the clock.

    "14.573@98.11MPH - JUDGENINJA, Volvo V40 T4 - Seats removed" - thats taken from the 1/4mile times and, apart from the seats being removed" his car is standard

    How many standard 850s or s/v/c70s t5s can do that?

    And roughly how much should I be looking at spending?
    What sort of figures did a Remap give you?

    After the basic 230bhp MTE generic map the options are very limited but have a read of this. I'm going to Unichip mine. 550 supplied, fitted and mapped full piggyback ECU controller.

    Unfortunatly i didn't get it mapped myself, it was done by a previous owner and i wasn't even aware it was mapped untill i had to take it to a main dealer to get an issue sorted out. They had a bit of trouble with the diagnostics and it was only when they looked a little deeper into it that they told me.

    My reply was something like "oh, that explains why its so fast for a bloody auto!" lol

    Sorry i can't help you, but maybe you should give smithy a pm because i'm sure his mate got his t4 mapped not long back.

    Yeah, im sure the remaps just raise boost and no other parameters lol my ECU is stock as you know and ran 285bhp @ 20.5psi. Just put VXR injectors on for it to bung in enough fuel, pikey but it works. They will fuel 340bhp.

    I will find the money to get it fixed by the end of the month. I'm not eating, not paying any bills, heating is off, no baths, no beer. If it breaks again after this, the car burns!!

    Sounds good, I always slow down whenever I drive past your car parked up to try and get a better look!
    Think I'm gonna need some help when I've got mine to get some tips on tuning it lol!!

    Hi mate. When have you driven past my car? it's bog standard on the outside. Car has a big spec but have had my fair share of teething problems. Actuator hose blew off last week, boosted to 30+psi and popped the HG (I hope nowt more serious). You don't need my spec to reach 300bhp though, but here it is that I can remember:

    I have fully forged internals (bought engine already done, cheap), MBC, return line added to fuel system, adjustable FPR, Holset HE221W turbo, full 3inch JT system, VXR injectors, dumpvalve (hate it but with the boost I run prob a good idea), full custom huge drop in alloy intercooler, converted T5 manifold to adapt to T3 flange. Allows me to fit a wider range of turbos like the 19T, Holsets etc.

    Hoping for 320+ when mapped
