Hey i have a black 1996 volvo 850R i havent done much with it except a pioneer headunit(deh-840mp), lowering springs, ,a kicker comp 12inch woofer, and pioneer door speakers... i plan to get my windows retinted bc somone broke into my car last summer to steal a pair of my dads pants form marshalls lol, so ya im ognna do that... i just wanted good links on where to get a good intake for this car and maybe some other cheap mods i should do... i have pic son cardomain... but these are old http://www.cardomain.com/id/cameljockey69

ok i just got an exhaust tip, ,lol for now i guess and had it welded on... but it looks badass... like those remus exhausts with the double tips that slant up... ill post pics soon, i also got a cheap apc vortex intake and im gonnna work on making a flange for that tomorrow.. but it was a day well spent (70 bux total, plus 7 bux for a turkey sub, protein chips, and milk)

Hey man, I have a 3400 Stall torque converter for the 850 R. It will take up to .5 seconds from your standing 1/4 mile times!!!! It is brand new in the box, I want $400 + s&h. I put one in my R and WOW, what a difference! Let me know if you or anyone else is interested, please email me.
