Default Any T6 owners on here?

I've just bought a 2012 V70 T6 with Polestar Optimisation. Its the 304bhp standard and 329bhp with Polestar, so it's got the more reliable and stronger auto box than the 285bhp T6's.

Are there any other T6 owners on here? There doesn't seem to bea great deal out there about these engines with the focus of performance volvo groups naturally being on T5's and R model cars.

With the car already having the Polestar map, theres not much plug in stuff i can do now to improve the car. Snabb seems to do a few bolt on upgrades, but again all the info out there on these upgrades seem to be from the states.

So whos got one and what have you done to it?

I've just bought a 2012 Ex Police V70 T6. Like you I have found most of the focus is on the T5. It is hard to find accurate information but rumour is the Police ones are remapped from the factory amongst other upgrades.

Im over in the Uk and have a T6 Ive just had some intercoolers made for them as I couldnt find what I wanted. Ive fitted a D088 intercooler hose kit and a Snabb Intake kit. Also put on a IPD down pipe with sport cat.
