      That was Belle too? Hmm...

      In a few months, you'll understand why her name is going to be Belle. Something along the the lines of Blue Bell...

      93k miles. No mods installed until 60k, and the timing belt has just been replaced. So it's an excellent starting ground.

      I know I didn't build this car up from stock, but you have to give me some credit since I installed most of these parts on the S40 already.

      Don't worry, I figure a lot of SwedeSpeeders won't want to sign up for Crew, so I'll post duplicates of everything on both forums.

      I don't have any good pictures yet, just what's from the listing and I don't want to share those... I'll get some pics tomorrow though

      The Journey to Belle

      6AM flight, sunrise over Virginia.



      Wendy picked me up in Trenton, NJ. After some fun adventures in Beacon, NY, we headed up to Oswego to meet MadderMax and exchanged a piece of paper that represented money for a piece of paper that represents ownership of a C30.

      After years of waiting / searching, I'm finally in my dream car Previously owned by MadderMAX, this is starting off as a near clone of my old S40, but I will be adding to that list very quickly.

      Lake Ontario in the background:


      Spent last night with a couple other C30s, then came back to Atlanta today.



      ...And now the true fun begins

      Wasting no time, let the mods begin!

      Swapped over the super bright Cree LED reverse bulbs from my S40. I need to order new LED bulbs for the license plate lights, anyone know which size they are off the top of their head? I could always measure or dig up the LED thread, but it never hurts to ask.




      LED H11 Fog bulbs, 6000K, and regulated LED city lights.




      Swapped over the brushed aluminum foot rest; so happy to finally have 3 pedals.




      Just an FYI, I cannot clear coke cans.



      Went to show my parents the new car...
      Mom: "Whoa this is low! Are you going to try to fix that?"
      Me: "Yes, it needs moar low!!!!"

      This car has an upgraded inlet manifold, focus RS cams, and coilovers. Everything else is the same as my S40 had.

      It's an M66 and it's much lighter than the S40, so it's a lot faster off the line and through the turns. The cams make a huge difference above 2800 RPM, but 6 gears also help a lot. Not to mention no torque limiter.

      These are H&R coilovers. Great stance, but I want to roll the fenders and lower her a bit more.

      Are you going to a K16 turbo? It seems you already have the perfect set-up for it.

      Once all the bugs are worked out with the tunes, I will.

      The previous owner was planning on a K16, the only thing this car is missing is the turbo itself.

      What Hp are you looking at with the big turbo? Are you going to try and run it safe, or try and maximize hp? I would think you would be around 450 at the crank.

      The last dyno showed 254hp/332tq at the wheels, but that was before the cams. If/when I go K16, I'll be relatively conservative. I'd like to see over 300whp, which is very realistic. Fastest P1 Volvo in the Western Hemisphere would be a fun title, but many risks.

      Though, I'm pretty sure this is one of the fastest K04 P1s in the world right now. The numbers are pretty impressive.

      Here are the LED reverse bulbs that I have, but being e-bay, I can't guarantee that the seller is selling the exact same bulbs (it's been a few months).

      Testing out the Midirs, I think they're going to stay. Not many classic C30s still running on Midirs.
