325hp 330lb/ft vs. 236hp 240lb/ft if the 545i didn't win i'd be shocked. boost pressure on the T5 is around 8 or 9psi if im not mistaken, don't get me wrong, i know that the T5 would proly be faster and certainly proly from a start FI is almost always faster, but on the hwy would proly be a lot closer since both cars are really ment to be hwy cruisers. that said it's really not worth the risk/gas if you want i might do a quick jot to around 140-150km/h but right now im trying to stay ticket free cause i don't want to get raped when my insurance come up next year... i respect volvo's and have always loved 'em seeing as though it was the first car that i learned how to drive on, they are very good value and last forever, and the turbo's on them are very nice, the one i learned one (V70R) would cruise all day at 250-260km/h smooth as glass and could easily keep up in the corners and with the AWD even in the winter it was like it has tank tracks.

07 GTI, Revo Stage II, 3" catless GHL exhaust, OEM R32 rear conversion, 17x9 + 17x11 215/45/17 all around on genuine BBS RS's, B&G RSII coilovers
