I love these episodes, they should be an entire series, vehicle with the highest percentage time dropped sits atop the leader board bonus points for be able to sell parts off of them, do an E class next.

These are the sort of episodes that got me into car throttle and what kept me, glad to see a return to form. I am also impressed that the V70 wasn't that much slower given it has 250k more miles, shagged tyres and aged suspension setup for comfort rather than the Skoda's which is setup for track times

meehhhe Of You Prije 4 mjeseci
Oh yea, volvo does two things really well to remain modest: 1. Specs on paper are less then specs in reality. Not entirely sure why they do this, a certified mechanic told me that could be rated for absolute worst case scenario. Top of a mountain in a 100+ degree (38C +) day sort of thing. 2. Have decent headroom from the factory. Probably for reliability reasons since these engines can go literally forever with proper maintenances. Bonus 3rd: play it safe… want to appear slower then they are and don’t want to appear to be competing even if they are directly like with R series. My wagon, has the 3.0L T6 engine. it has polestar tune on it, plus experimental tune on top of that pushing a claimed 450HP. 300K miles strong and when I see a race between two sports cars at the lights I love to join them and pass them… always surprised them to no end when two guys lined up with high performance AMG/M Sport cars dev battling at lights and then I not only keep up but pass them most times. Makes me think I’m in the 500HP range, there is some merit to that as I have damaged my AWD system several times from launching it hard like that. But it surprises everyone when he school bus of car brands passes them.
Matt J Davies
Matt J Davies Prije 4 mjeseci
Even some of the newer stuff can be surprising. I own a V40 5cyl D3 that the previous owner had a polestar performance map generously smeared on it, 202bhp and embarrasses a surprising amount of purpose made diesel hot hatches. Never write a Volvo off...

This car is either 163 or 185PS depending on the exact month of manufacture. I have a 55 plate 185 model with a diesel tuning box on it and the in gear acceleration is plenty to put a smile on my face. (EDIT, checked the engine cover and the car in the vid is a 163)

if that volvo had fresh tyres on it it would actually beat the vrs around the track amazing results
Victor Georgiev
Victor Georgiev Prije mjesec
@MementoMori, of course not, cause you have lousy tyres and most likely your car is full of all kind of junk that makes it heavier. Put some sports tyres, remap it properly, get proper brakes and let me know how it is. Also, not to mention the years difference between the two...
MementoMori
MementoMori Prije mjesec
@Victor Georgiev Yeah, not even close, I own a 186 D5 and can tell you it isn't a quick car. Its torquey and fast around the city, but not on a track.
Victor Georgiev
Victor Georgiev Prije 3 mjeseci
Fresh tyres + fresh brakes + remap (if it was the 185hp version) to hit 200bhp, it would have annihilated the Skoda even before it was stripped. After the stripping it would push at least 5 seconds before it. The D5 engine is a monster, even though I do not like diesels.

@douma2001 This was the 163 lower trim model. At the same year you could get the same engine but with different turbo, ecu, and injectors making 185hp. Easily tunable way up to 210hp

I am over the moon seeing this as a recent owner (2 months ago) of a D5 V70 54 plate manual. Love the old horse, 200k miles on it and cost me a grand. Got the 54 because its the last one without a DPF, which has been the bane of my life for the past 5 years in all of my modern diesels.
Dave Johnson
Dave Johnson Prije 3 mjeseci
Yes, the Euro 3 D5 (D5244T) is an extremely reliable diesel engine. Good design of EGR Valve and no DPF. Mine has 440,000 miles and pulls great. Easy to work on, lots of room around it. You can also get this same D5244T engine in various boats as a marine diesel, under the name "Volvo Penta D3" but it is literally the same engine, same turbo, same injectors etc. In the boat, it is available with 5 different power outputs depending on the installed ECU map... 110bhp, 130bhp, 160bhp, 190bhp or 220bhp. So in your V70, at 163bhp, the engine is well within it's designed power range. I want to remap mine.

Awesome video! Thank you all for making it! Any chance that you could make the next video just a touch different? Identical, but install new tires and do a super basic tune up. Basically, just get the older stripped car a chance to perform. Maybe even decent used tires or something? A $1,000 budget and strip. Budget stripping, hmm.

If you want a SERIOUSLY fast Volvo you should look for a T5 from 05-07. 260hp stock but the motor can handle 500~hp unopened. Even better would be the S60R or V70R although that would require more work to make it reliable.

But what if you would have streamlined it with plastic etc. to improve airflow around all of the holes you have made. That would make the car arguably quicker than the Octavia as weight and power are not the only two factors at play here. Aerodynamics will play a very significant part as well. Perhaps an idea for the next car? ;)

@Martin what a load of nonsense. Bare bones chassis and 1 out the 6 available engines are Mitsubishi - but that's where their involvement stopped. It was hardly badge engineering when the rest of the S40/V40's design and build was specifically by Volvo - including the 5 other engines. Not the first Volvo to be fitted with a Renault gearbox, either - see the 440 / 480 (engine too in that case). Some phase two S40/V40s had Volvo gearboxes, as a matter of fact.

@piuthemagicman i quite enjoy the newer s40's. Not that numb imo. I've had some great street races in that little car. Even kept up and gained time, I might add, on a Lotus Elise once. And that Lotus wasnt stock

@Eoin Duffin most 850s are nothing special it's the t-5 and r sport that are worth saving, and even then its only the engine thats good

@Odi te I had a '99 V40 T4 and currently have a '99 S40 T4. Engine and gearbox are ace. Once the various engine/gearbox mounts, sway bar bushes, steering rack bushes and strut mounts are sorted they drive great. Whack a decent set of tyres on the factory BBS rims and they grip pretty well. One of the cheapest ways to get into a well handling sub 7secs-to-100kmph car, complete with all the mod cons you could want.

Dont go for the s40, they kinda trash if you ask me, had one with the t4 engine with pretty low milage and it was nice engine wise but the rest was kinda trash, rather have the 850 then but tbh s60 or v70/s70/c70 is more value then
