well on ebay i was searching for new tails for my VOlvo 960. Don;t ask why. Anyways, i stumbled upon an ebay auction for a chip that will raise my HP by 7 maybe 10 HP. I find this rediculous because the chip looks likea resistor and all you do is place it
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=33597&item=7962056099&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW
ow i find id hard to believe that something that looks like resistor will up my HP by 7-10 HP. If it works then yeah i'll get it.

Also, will something like this raise my HP at all? I don't care if it's a fart cannon or not just as long as it works.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=7961863410&category=33636

If none of the above work, what can i do to my 93 Volvo 960 to raise it's HP?

take a co2 tank mounted inverted and run a line from it to a nozzle at the front of your intercooler it will freeze it and considerably lower your intake air temp. retarded for everyday driving but it would work well for a little boost in a drag.

Cut off that airbox and put Cone filter on it (bootleg sort ram intake) Thats what i did on my talon, and it werkd very well :yumyum:

~$30... 1.75L Bottle of Everclear.

Pour it in your gas tank.

the chip is supposed to fool the engine into thinking it is always getting cold air....waste of money

the exhaust is gonna be pretty much pointless without headers, downpipe and full exhaust, and even then if your car is not turbo, there really is no reason to give up that back pressure.

and cone filter should work on your car, you just might need to make an adapter of some sort, not really sure on volvos....but an intake will be the cheapest way to add power, although it could range for 2-3 hp up to 10-15hp.

if it was me and i wanted more pep, i would put an intake, headers, downpipe and 2-1/4" piping to exhaust (if not turbo), for the best gains

what engine is in the car, maybe i could help a little more and be more specific if i know that, let me know, thanks

the engine is a 6cylinder 24 valve Volvo B6304S engine.

If i am able to raise the cars hp by even 20 or more i'll be happy.

if you would put an intake on it and then at least some sort of cat-back you are gona raise by about 10 horses. Then add the header(s) and you should come close to your goal. Then you could get a MBC and turn the boost up a little bit.

well get sum tape measure'r and just see how it is all around and get a cone filter specs and see if would match up.

More HP> More fuel/air. Your first move should include an intake / exhaust. That's my echo, repetition is crucial for those who procrastinate. (first-hand experience)

cut your vaccuum line, put a t nozzle on it. it raises your boost, pretty much a MBC with the ability to adjust.......to do this u get a smaller/bigger T

A MBC is adjustable... Manual Boost Controller... so one with the ability to adjust is just a MBC, nothing special.

I know of a lot of good MBC's for 45-60$. A lot of the GN guys use these, and they work great, I even have one on my car.

Itll work on your car too,so dont worry.

the t-fitting free mod is a joke imo. if you have to be so cheap and can't even buy a cheap MBC for like 25 bucks then you don't need to work on a car. Buy a good MBC for around 50 bucks and go to town.

Nooooo! Stock volvo air boxes can handle > 400 HP. Open the box up, rip the foam out, use nice volvo air filters... but don't repleace the airbox, it won't help.

I highly suggest you go to turbobricks.com, they know what they are doing (although they primarily work on the Volvo 4 cyl's, theres a few 960 people around. They'll be able to give you great advice... I have a 940 with a B230FT, here's what I plan on doing first:

Boost gauge
Air/Fuel gauge
MBC
move up to ~12 PSI boost
3" exhaust

Those are going to be my first mods, they'll net you the most HP the quickest. After this (once I have cash ;)), I'd do a beefier turbo, upgraded injectors, suspension mods, brakes, and only once that's all done, would I even begin to mess with the head/headers etc, as there's not really all that much to be gained there. But again, turbobricks.com will give you all the info you need.

You must not have seen some crazy Swede's with 500+ HP volvo powered volvo sedans/wagons :up2somet:

What octane do you run?

Because...

You want power? Here is a good 20+hp.. Get a MBC, get a KR(detontaion) gauge, turn up the boost 2 or 3 psi, start to run 2-3 points higher octane(so if you run 87,start to run 91).

A PSI is usually about 6-10hp gain. Theres where your power is gonna be. Up the boost,up the octane, watch for knock.

If your increasing boost at all on the volvo's (or any turbo I assume) - ALWAYS run the most octane you can get, 91-93. Boris over at turbobricks sells a knock detector kit, basically sets off a light if your knocking, although volvos will retard timing if they sense knock. Stock volvo turbo's are only good to 15 PSI (and that's the upper limit) - after that you'll need a bigger turbo, as the little ones stock start to superheat the charge air... Also, you'll be running out of fuel by 15 PSI, if not before.

doesnt work. save yourself the money.
i think it toggles with the air sensor? to require to intake in more air than needed. which doesnt mean max performance because its more than the engine/car could handle.
