Volvo S80 2.4T Hella Style Horns

Wanted to see if the Hella style horns would fit the S80. First I painted them white (they were green). Mounting them was easy, but the front looks messy with the horns mounted, so I decided to remove them again.

Volvo S80 2.4T Replacing Window Sliders

Easy mod with big results. If you have a Volvo with a choppy window, 9 out of 10, it will be the window sliders. They are quite easy to replace though. Tip: buy them on Aliexpress for cheap!

Volvo S80 2.4T CAI Intake Modification

Decided to mod the intake flap to a more direct version, which should aid in forcing air into the airbox. Performance could be better, although right now I dont have the means to measure this.

Volvo S80 2.4T Converting HU-801 to Single DIN / 1DIN

I was missing the option to play my own music using a iPod Classic interface, so decided to convert my HU-801 Volvo headunit to my trusty Pioneer 1DIN / Single DIN using a fascia plate and some converter cables.

I like the original look better, but the functionality of the Pioneer outweighs the look a couple of times, which makes it a no-brainer for me.

Volvo S80 2.4T Trunk Spoiler

Upgraded the rear with a trunk spoiler (stick-on type) and it looks quite OEM, which I am very pleased with. Doubt it will give me any extra noticeable downforce, but it looks the parts 🙂
