    Not sure if the matched mud flaps would work as well on any other color!

    Any brand, as long as it clears the ABS/brake setup of the 95 850.

    Tuners Rejoice! Free Tuning For M4.4!

    I was going to do it for my 2.5 engine and strip out the mapswitching (as I wouldn't use it) but I just use the 608 instead. I may get round to it one day. There appear to be many differences in the fuelling and turbo values between the 2.3 and 2.5 ecus

    RWD swapping a p2 v70

    Maybe it’s the fender flares, etc but I always thought that was a P3 V70? Also, to OP- I think anyone who would need a tutorial or a parts list would likely not be able to complete a build of this scope.

    M56 Shifter Different 1998+?

    I'm looking for a shift knob/boot for my 2000 V70R, but I have a shifter assembly from a 1996 850. I've read that the shifters are not compatible, but not exactly how. Is there any reason at all I couldn't use an X70 shift knob/boot on my 850 shifter? I'm tired of having my 850 boot that doesn't match flop around in the console.

    RWD swapping a p2 v70

    Now that's definitely interesting... but I'd have no idea where to even start. You would need completely new front and rear subframes among other things. This is similar to that BMW M62, RWD swapped Saab 9-5. That's another really interesting build.

    Tuner4life's 1998 Saffron V70R

    Over the past weekend, I enlisted the help of a friend and professional mobile detailer to help de-salt the daily drivers and get them cleaned up for spring. I was on the fence as I usually handle thing kind of thing myself, however the very useful power sprayer attachments for under the car sold me. He literally Foamed the entire undercarriage and then power sprayed it clean. It is likely cleaner now than it has been in my entire ownership lol. I helped things by removing the wheels and bumper/shields underneath for better access. Afterwards, I installed the R bumper and the since it'll probably be June before the C70 comes out to play, I stole the 18" Bremmer Kraft BR11s to run on the wagon for a while. I am very happy with the result. We went out that evening and my photog brother got some cool shots!

    Ready for spring...
  15. Title says it all. I think most everyone here has seen that RWD swapped white t5 over in Europe "drifting" in the IKEA parking lot. Has anyone ever actually put together a list of parts needed to achieve remounting the engine sideways and putting in a differential/different rear end to supplement this build? Can't really find anything on it, don't really plan on doing it ever but it'd be cool to have some input for future enthusiasts. I was a bit curious on the build and couldn't find anything other than a corvette rear end, custom engine mounts, and swiss airforce grade hose clamps on everything. Thanks a lot everyone. Link for anyone interested:

    05 Volvo s40 "t5" modification

    I was actually looking at those sleeves while building a list for a (future stage 3-4 build) - do you need to get the cylinders machined or are they just drop in and go? Mind you I've never been inside of an engine. Thanks
  17. Thanks a lot brother. I'll order them up asap! It's in the shop right now for the cooler, b4 servo and trans flush. Fingers crossed that it's smooth as butter afterwards. One question - should I order all the prereq hardware for a subframe bushing install as well?

    Tuners Rejoice! Free Tuning For M4.4!

    Ask around if anyone has a LPT-adapted calibration of the rev5 bins. It should be fairly easy to get it "good enough". You have both cal avaliable in tunerpro, it's just a lot of work... 🙂 // Turboforslund

    Tuners Rejoice! Free Tuning For M4.4!

    Anyone know, what trigger settings should be when running aftermarket ecu ? looked at vems settings, seems for ecumaster emu they kinda don`t work. Tried first trigger tooth #5 and trigger angle 60. Car kinda starts, but idle is around 2.5k rpm. Logs show that IAC valve stays at 50% dc afterstart, maybe 250hz freq is too much for that old bosch 3-wire oldschool ? Or my trigger settings is way off and i have so high idle coz of bunch of timing advance ?

    I have an Amazon foam cannon that I use on my Troy Bilt pressure washer. I don't use it often, but it works well. The foam cannon itself was cheap, probably $20. I spent more getting the right quick connects at Home Depot, but most new pressure washers already come with those. Mine is an older model that I found around the block for free, so I'm not complaining! Cleaned the carburetor and it's run great for 2 years!
  25. This is how Sweedish Simons Exhaust sounds with R mani from S60R, and 9blade turbine wheel 19T. While driving, it seems to me that R manifold fires more sequentially - it is more equal length than the Japanifold, which makes bubbling sound like old subaru. With R mani theres no bubbling, just the 2 stroke engine dirt bike sound R Simons x.mp4

    Ok, i thought that 609 on page 307 is made from 607 or 608 bin. So do i have to make LPT bin from those 607 or 608 rev5 bins or is there some where all ready bins for LPT engine with logging feature?
