How can I make my 2001 s40 faster?

2 posts in this topic

I'm in the USA, that does seem to matter as no one on this side of the pond seems to tune these cars.  Anyway I got a 2001 s40 1.9t for free, it's in great shape.  Only thing is the stock output is kind of weak and I want to make it faster.  I'm no stranger to volvos, I built a 300 horsepower redblock before.  Anyway I've done some searching and I really cant find any performance upgrades for a 2001 s40.  I was wondering what you guys do to make them go faster?  I think 300 horsepower would be plenty, I don't need to go all out and go over 600 or anything too extreme.

Made a google translate on a usefull post on my forum here in sweden.. hope it helps

 

Yes there's a lot of questions about what is needed to achieve a certain effect, so I was thinking the same set list.

Remember that all vehicles / engines are different and provide different effects with the same trimmdelar. These are approximate figures on what you can possibly get.

This applies 4 cyl engines for the S40 / V40.

Kit for 280-300hk

Turbo 16T / 18T / 19T happy with 7: ans angled exhaust house
Adapter plate between the turbo and manifold
Steel braided hoses for oil / water
Manure from T4 phase 2 or S60R
Converted fuel systems with return
Sports exhaust from the turbocharger with sports / race catalyst (down spout needs to be modified to fit the exhaust house)
3 "LMM (if you have one phase 1)
T4 or S60R connection may be needed if you have a 2.0t
Ported manifold (happy phase2)
Sport air filter
Bosch platinum spark plug F5DP0R
and a fine mapping of the ...

Ideally, a Alloy intercooler oxå to cope with the boost in length.

This operation runs well on all x40 turbo models, but not 2.0t phase 2 when its pistons probably disagree!


Kit for 310-340hk

Turbo 18T / 19T 7: ans angled exhaust house
Adapter plate between the turbo and manifold
Autotech camshafts (version kinder)
Adjusted valves for new cam
Verdi connecting rods
Alloy intercooler
Steel braided hoses for oil / water
Manure from T4 phase 2 or S60R to 320hk, +500cc@3.8bar for more hp.
Converted fuel systems with return
Sports exhaust from the turbocharger with sports / race catalyst (down spout needs to be modified to fit the exhaust house)
3 "LMM (if you have one phase 1)
S60R coupling
Ported manifold (happy phase2)
Sport air filter
Bosch platinum spark plug F5DP0R
Top from T4 phase 2 or fas1.5
and a fine mapping of the ...

This procedure goes well on x40 T4 models.
2.0t blocks are a little weak so it can give itself after a while ...


Kit for 340-360hk

Turbo 19T 7: ans angled exhaust house
Adapter plate between the turbo and manifold
Autotech camshafts (version kinder)
Adjusted valves for new cam
Verdi connecting rods
Alloy intercooler
Steel braided hoses for oil / water
Spreaders such Siemens 630cc@3.8bar decal or the like.
Converted fuel systems with return
Sports exhaust from the turbocharger with race catalyst (down spout needs to be modified to fit the exhaust house)
3 "LMM (if you have one phase 1)
S60R clutch / Sachs clutch
Ported manifold (happy phase2)
Sport air filter
Bosch platinum spark plug F5DP0R
Top from T4 phase 2 or fas1.5
and a fine mapping on E85 ...

This procedure goes well on x40 T4 models.
2.0t blocks are a little weak so it can give itself after a while ...


Kit for 400hk +

B4194T2 (T4 -00) motor or older t4 engine crankcase uppfräst
Verdi connecting rods
Larger turbo T03 / T04 turbocharger (eg T03 / 4E / S Step 5 axis T04E / S Step 3 axis, Cosworth exhaust house)
Steel braided hoses for oil / water
T4 or JE pistons
Ported manifold Phase2
porting cylinder head
Autotech camshafts (version sharper)
Alloy intercooler
3 "exhaust system
Modified fuel system with return
+700cc@3.8bar Spreaders
Worse clutch (850svänghjul with Sachs pressure plate)
Extra fuel pump
Rebuilt Oil return?!?
Bosch platinum spark plug F5DP0R
Sport air filter
Double valve springs
Adjusted valves for new cam
After sales spray example Chesa / Motec / DTA
and a fine mapping of the ...


Then a little extra for the discerning:

A diff to bring down effect
Lowering with sports dampers
Strut
17 "-18" wheels
Better brakes (yellow tough & steel braided brake hoses or any Brembo / wilwoodkit)
Various gauges (turbo and oil pressure, exhaust temperature ...)
Motor Pillows & control arm bushings Polyurethane


Good luck in the race for power
