My new clio :)

Some things just can't be placed elsewhere. Have you been speeding and got fined? Or spotted a nice new Volvo on the web somewhere? All non-480 messages can be posted in this part of the board.

Joolz, Might have a Volvo badge on your car but the engine is not a Volvo engine. It's a Renault engine and his put it in a Renault.

so maybe you should join the renault engine owners club :D

Hang on, I'm pretty sure there's a fair bit of Volvo engineering that's gone in on it.

It was also a diesel engine originally you know! Doesn't mean you should try sticking diesel in it :? :lol:

And Porsche had something to say in it as well... aside from the chassis part of things, where Lotus was fair enough to give some (well earned) advise.

All in all... it's a Volvo! ;)

I was under the impression they reworked the manifold and upped the power quite considerably!

No, Lotus are supposed to have been involved with the suspension (although I haven't seen any proof, and the suspension doesn't use and Lotus parts I'm aware of).

Porsche wrote the engine management system (which then got edited by Volvo).

The suspension was worked on by Lotus.

Not quite sure what Porsche done-i get the impression that it was just general tweaking rather than anything specific...

Found this article though, here. Made some interesting reading...a 480 16v eh?

Unless the subject has been locked, you can edit it. I fact I've just edited it again... someone had the audacity to label it a 3 door hatchback...

It's a bloody coupe! :angry: That's the problem with Wikipedia, any old person with an axe to grind can put in... see the end of the article :lol:
