Default Bonny vs. Volvo

One of my best friends has a little brick. (940t Volvo) He is always bosting about how fast his car is. So I decided to put him to the test against my 93 N/A. Off of the line I wasted him. As soon as I shifted to second, the gap closed because his turbo kicked in. He did beat me, but barely, about half a cars length. He was talking sh#t to me all week at school. It pissed me off so I went out and made myself an intake to get rid of that crappy stock one. I raced him again and smoked him. Then the ***** went out and copied my intake and we raced again. This time he brake torqued it and beat me(I don't like brake torquing cause of my high mileage, but i will if i have to ). Our two cars are really closley matched and i need something to put me over the edge against him. Any Ideas?

Easy. Intake is done. Do the 180 Thermostat, and open up your exhaust a bit. Then chip it. He'll be hard pressed to mod that one back! Chipping the Volvo is a VERY expensive option, and the chip in your car will make a PROFOUND difference.

Or you can go Turbo against Turbo, and find a GN.

Couldnt of said it better myself

Our Bonnies are great cars, but with a little bit of minor mods, WATCH OUT for those Turbo Sweed'*. We have owned 3-4 Turbocharged Volvo'* over the past 10 years, and are now on our second Saab 9-3 Turbo Convertible ('00). The only one we really modded was my brothers Volvo (1993 940 SE Turbo) a couple years ago, and I must honestly say that'* gotta be right up there on the list of quickest cars I've ever driven / been in. We did a CAI, Exhaust, High-Performance Blow-Off Valve, Saab Turbo APC Unit (Turbo Controller), beefed up the intercooler ducting, and turned up the turbo quite a bit (almost to max). The car didnt last long, and we actually sold it just before the motor went, but while he had it, that thing SCREAMED!!

Kill List:

1 - MY Bonneville
2 - 1996 Ford Thunderbird V8 (last year of the older style)
3 - 1994 Ford Taurus SHO (Automatic) - 5-Speed might've got em
4 - 1998 Jeep Cherokee 4.0L
5 - 1999 Dodge Caravan 3.8L (Short Wheelbase) - Dont laugh, that minivan was descent
6 - Tons of his friends Acuras and Hondas

I'm sure there'* more, just cant think of them right now (It was like 2 1/2 years ago, when I first bought my bonny).

Anyways, as long as he doesnt visit Http://www.ipdusa.com and get any tips and crazy ideas, you should be ok, but if he does, be prepared to mod mod mod to try to keep up

Good Luck!!
