  • Volvo 850 T5 Kompressor

    This is how I got it, for the grand total of $700 with long tax and Mot in may 2009









    Painted the boost pipes and fitted a dump valve.





    Move on 4 months



    Changed the boost pipes



    A set of wheels and tyres off ebay and a rear spoiler





    some more wheels



    and a go at sprinting





    Then we get serious. two intercoolers











    ditched the aircon, and put this in its place





    intercoolers mounted







    A bit of plumbing







    I now have a hole in the bonnet, (still a lot of fetteling to do yet)


    And now we have boost, (don't these mobile phones have crap sound quality)






    the back slot in the bonnet will be to let hot air out.

                        are the 2 intercoolers joined? if so the top mount is undoing all the good efforts of the front mount, you'd be better off just running the front mount. nice build though

                            I'm very disapointed by that question, the top mount is to cool down the charge from the turbocharger into the supercharger.
