This looks like a forum I have been looking for; lots of performance upgrade information and support!   Spent a few years (and quite a few dollars) bringing a 2002 V70 X/C up to a stage Zero.  When I decided to upgrade, there did not seem to be many people who like to modify Volvo's for performance. I am currently upgrading the V70 X/C and would appreciate comments and advice.     So far, here is what is going on:

16T turbo upgrade, green injectors, port matching and polishing on the head, polished interior surfaces of the exhaust manifold, Mototec down pipe and Touring exhaust, (Yes, I am past the loud car stage and am building a Stealth Volvo.), do88 drop in intercooler and piping, Snabb intake pipe, IPD TCV and a Hiliton tune.  Motor is getting new rod bearings and a head gasket.  Hoping the bottom end is in good shape at 170K miles; I would like to stop the money out flow.

     I have another 2002 V70 2.4T in good shape sitting in the driveway (annoying the wife) and I am considering an all out engine/tranny build just so I can beat my little brothers new BMW on the autocross track.  This will have to wait for the X\C to get finished, but you never know...
