    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
    JESUS!!

    Is the return fuel line only needed for the adjustable fpr?
    Do you know if there are any turbo upgrades that can be done with the standard manifold?
    Do you have any idea whats a good pressure to run with an mbc on a relatively stock engine? (or would a remap be better)

    I have seen your car a few times parked up on the corner near the shop.

    Be good to see your car and you don't have to run, but seeing other modded volvos may "persuade" you. lol

    Oh yeah, didn't realise you'd seen it. It's always minging atm, I must wash it lol

    Return line needed for FPR and the T4's returnless system loses pressure above 300bhp in most cases. A guy called Tim Williams will convert a manifold for you for 70. I sourced a 2001 S60 manifold for 25, he did the work and posted back to me. It bolts straight on. Then you can pick up a cheap 16T for 100 and have 270+bhp possible. I have a mate with a workshop who has done most of the work on my car so is very familiar with my car. He is very cheap and enjoys the work so if you get stuck he's your man.

    Forgot to say the car has a SMF conversion and 850R clutch too. This list makes me realise how much work and money I've spent on the car.

    ok, I have found what appears to be a nice X reg phase 1.5 that I want to go and look at.
    the photos clearly show phase2 bodywork, but the advert also states that the engine capacity is 1855cc.

    Does anyone know what engine code was used for the p1.5 1855 engine so that I can be sure?

    Thanks.

    B4194T2 mate. The most desirable engine to tune. Mine was a Phase 1.5 but had the phase 1 bodywork and B4194T2.

    Isn't the B4204T5 the 1948cc?

    Alas, yes it is. Not the best one for tuning.

    I have both an S40 & a V40 T4 both phase 2's and I had no problem with either, apart from the common fuel sender problem & the bonnet cable snapping both were cheap fixes, there's no real noticeable difference between handling and performance of the estate vs the saloon the ones I had were similar mileage and similar age 2001 vs 2002, I prefered the S40 just for look (was a nicer colour), I was looking for an S40 when the V40 T4 it ticked every box so I got it, & have to admit the extra boot space came in handy, but looks wise I'll always prefer the S40...

    As for the T5 vs T4 arguement I've been in/driven S60 T5, V70 T5, & I currently have a S40 T5 (which I love) but none have felt as fast as either of the T4's I've had, but I think thats down to the high pressure surge vs the low pressure surge, you feel the speed a lot more in a T4, but the T5 is a lot smoother to drive, ideally I would have a new shape S40 T4 but that doesn't exist ;-) & I'm loving the S40 T5 I have now, but I still miss the bigger surge from the T4

    Phase2 V40 for me... You'll all the issues of a 10yr old car no matter which one you buy.
    I like my 1997 V70 and 850, but the T4 is quicker out of the box straight line and on the track.

    I Went and had a look at the car, turns out it is the B4204T5 engine.

    I know they can't handle as much as the p1 engines, But can anyone quantify what sort of figures are safely acchievable with the p2 engines? (I'm thinking around 240bhp ish)

    Thanks

    If its been looked after then the 1948cc engine should be fine with a remap, exhaust, induction. Its when they are taken further that causes problems.

    Make sure things like injectors, fuel pump, plugs, hoses are all in good condition. Oil and filter change twice a year and always run it on super unleaded, which is very important on these engines, especially when mapped.

    When its done take it somewhere with a dyno to get the afr's checked, to make sure.

    B4204T2? its a p1.5 1855cc (even though the engine code sounds more like a 1948cc).
    But is it any good, or is it just like every other 1855 just with a wierd code?

    Thats the 2.0 engine. The B4204T2 T3 and T5 are the 1948cc and the B4194T /B4194T2 is the 1855cc.

    I thought that, but I checked with the DVLA, Insurance company, and HPI, and they all told me it was the 1855cc?
