This Volvo S60 R was brought to Excelerate Performance by the customer with future light modification plans. The owner is quite particular about his car and wanted the car to be healthy and up to date before enhancing the performance. Follow along as our mechanic performs a smoke test on the car to check for any vacuum and/or boost leaks and replaces the spark plugs.
While performing the smoke test our mechanic discovered a leak in the turbo inlet pipe. The factory piece is made from plastic and is prone to cracking over time mainly because of location and the temperature fluctuation it is exposed to. This a common issue on this particular model and will be replaced with an upgraded silicone unit from IPD.
