If you're looking for more power, I'd recommend engineering a light pressure turbo for your 900S. You could use the intake and exhaust system from a Turbo model, but limit boost to like 4 or 5 psi - it would give you some extra torque without having to worry about knock. If you really wanna go nuts, you could install an APC system as well, and crank up the boost higher. The easy way to do this would be like this guy did: http://www.teleport.com/~bertram/volvoapc/index.shtml instead of using all the wiring like a factory Saab turbo would. -Justin
