this car stock is about 240 hp how did you manage to create 45 more hp just with exhaust and fuel injection?.

I have a stock naturally aspirated 1998 S70, I upgraded a little bit to your scanguageII but want more, that just provided me with the information I needed to get better fuel economy. I like seat of the pants speed so I want a lot of torque, I am a new volvo enthusiast but, a strong one also. Thank you, for any information.

they got 45 more by using the ECU reflash, injection, and the exhaust. The ECU being the most important.

I purchased a new '85 740 turbo wagon automatic. I wanted some more HP so off came the rear most muffler, and a straight piece of pipe to replace the 2 90 degress turns, then an Edlebrock water injection with controls hidden in glove box. I ran hydrogen Peroxide in place of water, Boost gauge, turn up boost to 17 pounds this went well until I became bored turned up to 23 pounds BELIEVE ME THIS WAS TOO HIGH, I bent all 4 rods in 2 days racing a BMW 540 I reeled him in but evidently stayed in it too long. BTW, Carillo will make you a set of stout rods in Los Angeles.
