Hey guys..so my really good friend just picked up a sweet charcoal grey Volvo S60R with orange interior 6 spd and brembo brakes. He bought off a member on a forum and it came with a Bsr chip..Basicly ads 50 hp and 40 t/q ..anyways he looked into a speed6 and had a thread going on his forum about the 2 cars..Basicly they call the speed6 a poor mans s60R. Both owned by Volvo almost the same specs .They did however go on to say that the speed6 would outhandle a R out of the box no doubt. I reallly like his car and it feels fast as hell. My car has a cpe catted downpipe. TMIC and cpe ems and his car feels as fast or faster..just curiouse to know if anyone here has experience with this car Vs our speed6 . The seats are soo comfy and the car is soo refined it has 3 chasis modes comfort , sport and advanced and his picked it up for cheeep! I am considering this car. Anyone track it or think about this when they got the speed6? Anyone ever run one? lol..
Thanks

I've beaten the shit out of an S60R but haven't driven a speed6 (just been a passenger) but with the mods the S60 that you're talking about has on it, I doubt the speed would be able to match it. I'd take a tuned ECU over basic bolt ons any day of the week.

Actually, the S60R is the most powerful car I've driven. Heh.

Well I have bolt ons and a ecu as mentioned..set to 18 psi.
No doubt it's a sweet car. The weight of the R is just under 100 lbs heavier than the speed6 GT

Oh woops, missed that note about the CP-E EMS.

Both cars in their current form that you mentioned should be running solid mid 13s. I'd actually like to see this race a lot.

The fact that Mazda is owned by Ford is not entirely true. Ford owns 1/3 of Mazda, and car like the Speed 3 and 6 are still entirely made in Japan by Mazda.

Stock for stock the speed6 has the advantage; especially off the line. On a highway race, they might be pretty even.

1/3rd = controlling share = ownership, essentially.

It's funny u say this.. They had it like this.. Off the line the speed6 aparently it's impossible to launch a S60R volvo never lets you completly turn off the traction control so you will always bog..so they give the speed6 the upper hand off the line. But they say top speed and rolling will always go to the R.. it's a autobahn car more top end.
