Volvo S80 2.4T BSR Optiflow Kit

Bought a new BSR Optiflow kit as I wanted a little bit more blowoff + compressor noise. I can also fit my Velocity Stack filter (150mm diameter).

It has been sold in the meantime as the extra induction noise does not fit the S80 to be honest.

BSR Kit: 4900705
Max HP: 410 HP

Volvo S80 2.4T Rezaw-Plast Plastic Skidplate

When I bought the car, it was missing a skidplate. A skidplate has a number of purposes, like protection, keeping dirt out, but also improving underbody aerodynamics and improving cooling and fuel economy of the car. A car is cooled by pulling air through your radiator (by the flow of lower pressure air under your car), instead of purely relying on high pressure on the front of the car.

I bought this Rezaw-Plast one via Motointegrator.de and it had a very good price (33 euro is a steal!). Fitment is very good, aligns well with the stock mounting holes.

Partnr: RP151901 / 151901 / 8634813 / 30741855 / 8624664 / 30741968

Volvo S80 2.4T Dirty vs New Airfilter

Replaced the air filter. This is what a dirty airfilter looks like.

Change it on time, so your car keeps performing at peak efficiency!

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.
