  3. Project Blackt5

    Three year thread revival! For some reason I'm now seeing all my pics again, did photobucket actually relink 3rd party hosting? Are the pics loading for everyone else? I've been doing lots of work/overhauling my P2Rs the last few years but still driving my S70 in the summer. This year I decided to insure my T-5R for a few weeks prior to swapping insurance onto my S70 for the season. It's my only automatic car and feels funny, but its fun just to cruise in. It does look like the rear main is leaking so a manual swap might be in order :) I already have all the parts. I'm going to turn the boost up a bit on the S70 this year and get my exhaust rattle fixed. lol

    Did I sell you that wheel? I can't remember :D
  8. The splines are worn on the trans side? Normally they strip out on the angle gear side. To answer your question, you can't swap the output shaft from an auto. The splined shaft is actually part of the differential inside the trans. I don't know if there are any aftermarket diffs available for the M58, but that would be an option. Otherwise I imagine you would need a stock diff from another M58 box. If you do decide to go FWD and want an M56, I have one I could send you if you can't find any locally. I'm in Victoria.
  9. How you have it is perfect. You need to use your wiring harness and sensors on the motor. We did the same swap (R motor and M66 into my brother's 01 XC70 just over a year ago).

  11. 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.
  12. 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
