    Standard Tomcat - Volvo 960

    Hi,

    I've just joined your forum with the hopes of learning a few tuning mods for my 96 960, I've already completed a few mods but they're mainly cosmetic at the moment..







    I'm looking for help with the rear suspension, it has the later type of IRS with the composite leaf, what's the best way of lowering and uprating the rear suspension?, would coilovers be the bet bet?.

  2. Takk TeamBørnOut, Morgis, Janus, gatebilboy takket for denne posten

    Nice front bumper i think coilovers is the best for that suspension.

    Looks nice...you should paint the side skirts ( ? ) and the lower part of the rear bumper in the car's colour...it makes the car look lower, and even better

    Very special front! I'm not usually like 964, but this front you've made fits perfect for the rest of the body.

    Is it a V70 front bumper who is modified for the 960 front? If so, nice combination!

    Thanks guys, still got lots of work to do on the car but it's slow going as I don't have much money at the moment. The grill didn't work out as well as expected as I used an S60 grill rather than an xc70 item, going to be making another one at some point.

    Going to be doing more painting when the weather warms up, the side skirts are next and then I'm making a custom rear bumper with twin exhausts..

    Here's a few more photo's for those that where interested, the interior is totaly standard(bar the tints), I want to swap it out at some point as I hate the colour of it.

    Ohhh! Nice!

    You should make a grill in the same height as the lamps and pull it in, the "dent" in the bumper where the grill is now should be filled in. Flatnose 960?
    Love the bumper, really good work from the looks of it

    Do you have the 3.0 or the 2.5 engine? I see you have a manual transmission, but that doesn't mean it can't be a 3.0. Some of the low-output (180hp) 3.0's came with manual

    You have many options regarding the engine performance part...

    If you have a 2.5, you have a less potential for making great power in NA setup (because of heavier reciprocating weight, compared to engine displacement), but it suits nice for a LP turbo or supercharger setup. But since none of the NA engines got piston cooling nozzles, the power output should be "moderate", unless you drill som holes in the block and install nozzles + plumbing. The stock camshafts and angles on the 2.5 actually works quite nice for a supercharger setup, so I personally would have gone for a Lysholm/whipple twin-screw setup, if I had a 2.5

    If you have any of the 3.0's (identical engines realy, just different camshafts and different program on the
    ECU
    ) making fun amounts of NA power is quite easy.

    - Old (modelyear 92-94) camshafts or custom grind ones.
    - Light "factory error correction" porting done to the head.
    - 3" exhaust system with tuned 6-2-1 headers.
    - "Custom" intake system with straight and tuned runners.
    - Re-mapping of the stock
    ECU
    .

    Regarding the
    ECU
    ... All 960's (modelyear 96 on) and s/v90's feature a quite powerfull
    ECU
    . They all have the Bosch Motronic 4.4 with
    OBDII
    comunication.
    This means that the stock
    ECU
    can be "live" re-mapped on a dyno, almost like any aftermarket one

    But for a boosted 2.5 I would recommend an aftermarket one...

    Best regards

    Thankyou for all the nice comments, sadly can't do much about the rear height yet as it's got the awfull transverse leaf rear suspension. I swapped the leaf for a softer nivomat leaf and I've fitted some niviomats shocks, this has lowered it a little from what it was but to go lower I'll have to buy some coilovers.
