Mini Cooper S R53 JCW – Injector Service

Cleaned & replaced the rubbers on the blue 380cc Siemens Deka injectors. The rubbers tend to get hard and brittle due to heat, so very important to replace these in time.

I will probably replace the injectors somewhere in the near future for peace of mind.

Volvo S80 2.4T JR Jetex Uprated Panel Filter

Decided to buy a panel filter from JR / Jetex. Build quality is nice, but could be better. Fitment looked like 100%, but unfortunately that wasn’t the case.

I tried to modify it a little bit, but that went wrong and I had to throw it away.

Volvo S80 2.4T Polyurethane Subframe Inserts

Bought a upgrade for the subframe. The polyurethane bushings are inserted into the rubber subframe bushings, which tightens them up and limit the movement in them.

Highly recommended from a performance point of view (night and day difference when cornering). But be aware, they do introduce vibrations into the cabin. It will take some time before these settle and the vibration will be lower in the end.

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.

Max HP: 410 HP

Volvo S80 2.4T DO88.se Turbo Intake pipe

Replaced the air filter and the turbo intake pipe.

The intake pipe was upgraded to a blue Do88.se / Do88 silicone intake pipe, which is a fair bit larger, but also deletes some bottlenecks from the original part (like the narrowing bend on the bottom and the “harmonica”).

Gives a little bit more power from the butt dyno and noticed more intake growl (which is a good thing) 🙂
