Cars

Recommended Posts

Hi. Lately, I've been doing a lot more tuning of my car than my computer and I'm curious to find out what the other overclockers and enthusiasts are driving. Here is my car:

Its a 2004 Volvo S60R with a 3 inch downpipe and a high flow air-filter. Over the past few weeks, I've done some pretty advanced ECU tuning, and it is currently putting out about 350 bhp and 365 ft/lb torque by my best estimate. That's 140 HP/liter; not bad for a volvo.

This car has a lot of lowend pull, which it is almost completely tracted by the AWD and 10.5 inch tires. But I'm sure at least a couple of you have something that can top this. I know that Ware, for one, drives a nitro-methelene dragster to work. Post some info about your car with pictures is possible.

 

Note: The above pictures are not my own, but they are identical in appearence to my S60R, so I thought I would save some time by not having to digg up the old digital camera.

I don't get how American adolescents can afford such cards. Don't you have to pay an insane amount in insurance & taxes? You made me jealous alright. :)

Massman- You have to be 18 to get a licence in Belgium, right?

 

Jmke- If you were to get an impreza, would you want a WRX or would you go all out and get a STi?

17 and 6 months you can start driving lessons to get permit when you hit 18 :)

It changed ;)

 

17 - theoretical exam and start driving lessons

18 - practical exam

In Alberta Canada a few years back, you could be licensed at age 15. High accident rate ftw! I've driven a current gen STI, and it was a fantastic performer, but your right jmke, the nose is ugly.

I'll be installing a supplimental cold air intake that should be good for a few more horses next week. Have any of you done anything to modify those cars?
