The Story

Welcome! This is my 2000 Volvo V70R AWD, which I purchased back in 2018 fully stock with only 87k miles. It's essentially a sports-station wagon from the 90s, a sleeper if you will. It has a turbo 5-cylinder which makes 261hp and 258lb-ft of torque stock, and this was the same as the Audi S4 and Mustang GT V8 of the era while also weighing less than 2 tons. With all the bolt-ons, the intercooler, and full turboback exhaust system, it's likely making 20-30hp over stock on the factory tune.

Model year 2000 was the last year of the boxy Volvos, and 2000Rs came with the most power from the factory (compared to previous models), as well as plenty of special extras like the optional two-tone seats. For the past few years, I have put plenty of maintenance into the car, as well as numerous OEM+ upgrades and quality aftermarket performance parts. I have hopes to manual swap the car in the future, with a power goal of 300hp to all four wheels (about 360hp to the crank).
