    Nice. I've experienced the BSR map on a c70 with (almost) the same engine, it's pretty good for driveability if a little lacking after 5krpm.

    Will there be any other mods going on? As I have an identical engine in my car, I know there's a lot more to be had without impacting reliability (currently on 228k miles).

    Spot on, plenty planned just need funds! Have Pegs and S60R bumper to fit - I would like to go 400+ though aware upgraded internals required. Did stage 0 prior to map and a pipercross element , best upgrade yet has been front subframe polybush inserts made a huge difference to vague front end. Will likely poly bush front arms and upgrade brakes as although very recent discs and pads find them lacking, Maybe hoses required.

    Suspension next so any VFM upgrade solutions much appreciated, cheers

    Ps I feel inadequate my wagon being on just 97k, 200k+ with mods impressive!

    Best brake upgrade for your is the xc90 336mm disks and calipers. Takes an hour to fit and you'll not believe the difference.
    Suspension wise, depends how far you're prepared to go - I have apex yellow springs and Boge Automatic shocks with lots of powerflex stuff.
    400bhp will be an expensive target but 300+ won't be hard and the torque will go up considerably.
    Don't forget good tyres - being a fwd torque monster, you'll find it understeering and lighting up a lot.

    Like I said on your other post, just swap the rear shocks for whatever standard equivalent you fancy.
    Parts aren't too hard to track down on eBay, frf, Partsforvolvosonline.com etc.
    There's also a lot of good 2nd hand parts available on forums and Facebook.

    Perfect thanks, for some reason thought different mounts required...@ 97k probs need a refresh anyway.
