  1. BBK - Front and Rear for 98 V70T5m

    I had the spindles machined down and brackets made to mount the P2R calipers on my S70. I lost the steering stops, but the front tires rub before I get to full lock anyway. 235/40R18 on Mirzams w/10mm spacers up front/20mm rear. I already talked to Justin about this. It cost me a shit load to have the custom work done and no, I can't get more brackets made. Just get the Porsche setup for the front or take a set of spindes, calipers, rotor, pads, hub and axle to a fab shop and see what they can do.
  2. Simply T-5R, The Build Thread : A New Hope

    On my S70, cold start oil pressure is over 6 bar, hot idle is 1.5 bar and cruising varies. I'll try and keep an eye on the gauge when doing a pull on the way home today. My motor was built 13 years ago and has ~50k miles.
  3. You needed to have installed a 99-2000 Clutch master cyl. It has the nubs that the clutch pedal sensor connects to. I'm fairly certain this has to be in place for cruise to work, but I could be wrong. One of the wires connects to the ECU and the other is a ground. I covered all this in my 2000R manual swap/build thread but photobucket has now changed it's policy and disabled hotlinking the images so you can't see any of the pics. You will, as George says need to have the vac switch attached and connected to the vac lines just like the one on the brake pedal. What tune are you running? I was under the impression that Hilton could get the cruise to work if everything is connected and wired properly.
  4. How Your Car Sits

    In the garage with the battery unhooked. The T-5R just sat for 18 months. I bought it but never actually drove it before. I have a bunch of batteries from all my different parts cars, so i'll typically throw in the best one I have. I often have to give them a bit of a charge first though.

    Drove my T-5R for the first time Took my S70 out to get some groceries and blow the dust off. It's been parked since Oct. Replaced the passenger side axle in my Laser

    I don't know if the BKR7E are available with the longer threads. I like OEM plugs personally. I get a bit better price at the local dealership, I just bought a set for a P2R and they were $99 something cdn after tax. Tell them you want wholesale. :)

    That R motor has been for sale forever. I hope you paid less than asking. At least it came with the turbo etc

    aaand that is why I don't let shops touch my cars. lol Glad you got it together
  12. New Project - 1998 Volvo V70R

    Did you get the car back yet?
  13. New Project - 1998 Volvo V70R

    If your dealer is like mine, they should be able to have one brought in pretty quick. Typically its overnight from California. Are you on the Alberta Facebook group? surely someone has one kickin around. If not, I'm sure I have one I could send you.

    Curious on your thoughts of the M58 once you get it together. The two M58 cars I've driven both felt sloppy as shit

    Reuse the fork, but get a new plastic ball seat. I'll have to dig up the P/N Reuse the slave, it's external so it's easy to replace I went with a new clutch master just because its such a bitch to replace and I never wanted to do it again. Good used will probably be ok, same with the line. Get new axle seals Get new flywheel bolts Get new pressure plate bolts Volvo trans fliud is expensive, use it or Redline You should have messaged me, I have a ton of parts including K24 kines etc. I might be picking up a 98 black on black V70R here shortly too :) You might also want to get a new sleeve for the angle gear or weld it up while everything is apart. See how it looks
