    so after being tired of monster trucking i bought megan racing lowering springs(for the mazda 3) and Elevate rear sway bar, all for the price of $200
    [​IMG]
    and i picked up a set of 19" rims, because they were a good deal, originally i wanted 18"s. buti am happy i the result

    the very first night of having my rims i hit a skunk, and it ripped the very bottom of my c30, but all was fine.

    I had her Dynoed to see what my stock numbers are and volvo from the factory says 227hp and 232 ft lbs of toque, my results were very impressive for stock
    [​IMG]
    after this i waited a few months until now
    [​IMG]
    new performance brake pads, stainless steel brake lines, turbo inlet pipe, and a tune that is capable of running e85, it should add a extra 60hp and 70ft lbs of torque while running on e85 and 40hp and 50 ft lbs of torque on premium.

    so my next plans?

    coilover, exhausts, 16 or 17" rims for some really good tire for track/fun, intercooler and piping, and that should be it.

    i hope you have learned a little more about my volvo and I, her name is lucy by the way.

    We should find a way to match the fake 2 piece nuts to your lug nuts.

    oh and i also installed my tune, getting great gas mileage, and lots more horsepower. according to my old dyno sheet and all the new stuff i should be somewhere around 270-290hp and 300-320 ft lbs of tq depending on what fuel i run

    Cool car. Not often you see one of these things all done up. Very unique, very cool.

    Also, I seen you at Cars and Coffee last fall. You had a sweater on that said "Practice safe sex, screw in a Volvo." Funniest shirt ever.
