I am looking at upgrading the power in my 06 S40 T5 FWD.
I am not a racer, and I don't do track days. what i am after is that feeling of being pushed into the drivers seat when you accelerate and if i decide to i would like to be able to lose traction when i stomp the gas.
I don't want to upgrade the turbo if i don't need to, and i don't want to destroy my automatic transmission.
So with this i mind can anyone tell me what sort of horsepower should I be aiming for and any recommendations on what modifications I should do?
My car is not stock:
IPD panel filter
Heico body kit
Heico EVO wheels
Heico lowered springs
Heico rear muffler (2 1/2" inlet)
Stainless steel braided brake lines
I have been looking at a tune to 260hp but if i need more HP for what i want i don't want to waste my money on a tune now to need to do it again after some mods.
