  1. Finally all back together. The car itself is far from pretty but I’m happy with how it’s going under the hood.
  2. Still a big time work in progress but this has been my on going project during all the time at home lately. Stripping down the stock intake manifold, shaving and polishing it. An absolute pile of work especially since the previous owner had the manifold powder coated and getting that off has been incredibly hard but I think it will be worth while when it’s finally done.
  3. I was thinking more along the lines of a 20G not a 20T, from what I understand the bigger frame Mitsubishi’s perform quite well but I have been out of the game for awhile so things may have changed quite a bit. And thanks that’s kinda my thought too, it’s a good foundation just needs the finishing touches! I just don’t want to go so crazy that I have to change out some of the big work that has been done like the clutch etc. Thank you, good to be back I missed the forum.
  4. Yeah the whole car has been repainted, it was in a minor front end collision, was originally turquoise actually. The paint isn’t great and I’ll likely redo it one day but it’s rust free and more of a go car than a show car for me anyhow haha.
  5. I am unsure of who’s tune it is, but it was tuned by a local shop from what I was told. I would like to buy one of Matt’s kits when I can and tune it myself. And yes, absolutely. I kinda laughed when I heard it had a 16T on it with all the other work that has been done, it’s a bit excessive for that turbo. It does have an angle housing on it which is nice, but I plan on a GT2871R or a GT3076R down the road since it’s pretty much ready for it. I’d consider a 20G kit too if it was the right deal I suppose, won’t be doing the 35R again though as I want this to be more of a road course / auto x car and less of a highway monster, though it should still be pretty good at that. Here’s a better engine photo as well, couldn’t get it to post due to the size of it earlier. Cheers, Billy
  6. Hey everyone! Been awhile since I was on here last, my old username was woah4, but I can’t seem to get into that account anymore so I have made this new one. It’s been a long time since I had a Volvo but I just picked up my new car last weekend and thought it would be fun to share it with all of you again. This is my 9th Volvo, and should be a fun toy / project to work on and share with you all. For those of you unfamiliar with my past Volvo’s, they were as follows; 1995 855 10valve auto, stock 1995 855 T5-R, mostly stock but some work, auto 1996 855 T5-M, forged rods, GT3582R, coilovers, etc 1993 964 auto, never did anything with it really 2002 V70 T5 auto stock 2002 C70 T5-M coupe, mostly stock. 2001 V70XC basket case 2005 V70 2.5T awd full exhaust, otherwise stock and finally the new car. Its a 1995 855 T5, factory auto car but with lots of work done.... this includes; a fully forged engine ipd lowering springs full CX racing exhaust system r manifold and 16T turbo Ipd Rip kit and cold air intake kit 18 inch pegs With 235’s Front Porsche brakes An M59 manual swap with R clutch and much more I’m sure I’m forgetting. discovering more about it every day, and have plenty of plans! So stay tuned for more updates, I am quite excited to be back in an 855. Cheers, Billy
