    S70/V70 NA supercharged?

    Hello Iíve got a naturally aspirated S70 10v, which I know isnít the fasted thing on the earth and probably isnít a performance Volvo but Iíve been thinking recently is it possible to squeeze a few more horses out of the engine. I know what a lot of people will say, buy a T5 but just out of interest I thought Iíd ask. Thereís a few in America supercharged and I thought is it possible to do this in the UK. Has anyone done this? And if so is their a kit available?
    Thanks for looking

    Unless it's very lightly boosted, 4 psi, then you're going to need to lower the compression ratio. Also if you fit a turbo, you'll need water and oil feed and return lines for it, and an intercooler. Then it'll need the ECU remapping. The best thing to do would be to buy a T5.

    Have you got any links to the ones that have been supercharged in America? as for a kit, no there isn't. You would have to ditch the aircon, fit T5 injectors, an intercooler and you could probably get away with using a T5 ecu.

    Hello, sorry I haven’t got a link, but it looks like it’s a turbo and supercharged car. Thanks for the help but I’ve got another question. I’ve recently watched the wheeler dealers Lotus Elise and they polished and ported the head. Could I do this to mine, and how much power would I get.
    Thanks for your help

    Lol, I didn't think there were any Supercharged ones in America, although I do believe there is a turbo and supercharged one somewhere in the UK
    You could polish and port the head on yours, but it probably won't gain you more than 10bhp.
