Sorry to butt in here, but I think you've answered the question yourself. Turn the MBC down to where it likes it best. If you remove the wastegate pipe there will be no boost limit at all and the ecu won't even know anything about it. If you get a good 14psi boost, leave it at that and go get them C...

Pol did point out once that I was missing the red stripe off the bumper, so not sure if it is or isn't supposed to have them. Any road up, it doesn't detract from the fact this is a solid, reliable and decent 480 turbo. I'm away for a week now, so if anyone one fancies a look at this, I can be conta...

FOR SALE - Black Volvo 480 turbo £750

My Volvo 480 turbo is up for sale, only because I need to fund my first love, a 205 gti. I bought this car 11 months ago as a fixer upper, but I liked it so much, I kept it. I came across a cheap 205, which I love, so the 480 has to go. It has served me very well, being reliable, fast and great fun ...

Yep, I have a rich-modded Turbo and blasted past a whole line of slower moving cars on the way home tonight. I only meant to pass one or two, at most, but the power just kept coming so I nailed the whole lot of 'em! (7 cars)

FOR SALE - Uprated turbo actuator

Hi. I bought this with the intention of upgrading the actuator on my Volvo 480turbo, but like many things, I couldn't really be bothered in the end. Thus, I'd like to pass it on to someone that can make good use of it. I believe it will fit a T2, like mine, with some bracketry made up. £15 + post...

I hope it's a big pay day, I was quoted about £700 to remove it, rebuild it and replace it with a new clutch.

Just how much do I like this car...?

Do Renault gearboxes fit easily?

I see from Heavend's post that the 440 box fits, but the speedo drive is a pain. Is this the same with the Renault JB3/JB5 'boxes which are rumoured to fit? I have a slight whine from the diff and now everything else is sorted on the car, I feel I should do. Having said that, it isn't getting any wo...

Upon reflection, it could be rear tyres which are the famous "Kingstar" make. Changing the fronts for Goodyear F1s transformed the car, so I think I'll start with some new rear boots. Is there any documented evidence of Lotus involvement in the suspension? Or are they, like everyone else involved wi...

Why don't I ever see other 480s when I'm in mine?

Does anyone else, with multiple cars, see this?

When I commute in my Matra, I can see 3 or 4 480s and although I can flash my pop-ups, the effect would be lost.

Having commuted in my 480 for the past few weeks, I haven't seen another one!

It's still at £450 with 2 days left...
