The Story

This is Tallahassee. Tallahassee, is a all original, 500$, 400,00km+ car. I originally bought this car, with the purpose to daily drive it, as my big turbo XC60 was getting to modified to be able to daily drive it reliably. After driving it for some time, I realized that there was definitely some potential with this car. I chose to modify this car is a way that nobody has modified these cars before, Rally Car. As this car is appart of the P2 Platform, parts from the XC70 wagon can be easily swapped over. This car sits on oversized 215/65/R16 tires, XC70 front strut+springs in the front, and 1" subframe spacers in the rear.

The biggest issue to this cars performance is the original AW-5X automatic transmission. I am currently obtaining the parts to do a M56 manual swap with. With the manual swap I will also be doing a Spec Stage 2 Clutch, Spec 15.3lb Single Mass Flywheel, Spaceball Interior and a Snabb Short Shifter. I will also be doing a big turbo upgrade. I have a Borg Warner k24 that I will be getting bored out, to fit a 75mm exducer wheel, and will be running it at low boost until I rebuild the bottom end of the engine.
