  1. Your photo is difficult to see in detail what you are trying to highlight. I've never seen that type of VVT pulley leak, but I suppose anything is possible.
  2. I made a video on the subject a few years ago, this should help. Procedure is on a 5cyl, but it's the same for a 6.
  3. I think he means the VVT gears by the term "phasers" but I'm not entirely sure. Usually on that engine the VVT hubs don't leak, but they are probably covering their ass since it's a pretty involved job. You might be able to get the parts cheaper, but actually getting the job done is another matter. Hope that helps!
  4. Was the swapped car originally an automatic? If so you need a custom tune for the manual swap.
  5. Should be ok. I remember doing a rear main in one years ago that had 49k on it and was still under warranty. That's a motherfucker of a job to get paid 9 hours.
  6. I thought that was determined a long time ago.
  7. Looks like a healthy amount of work has been done. Spec clutch gives me pause, there are some know issues with those. If you don't know what you are looking at I would strongly suggest you have a pre purchase inspection performed by a shop familiar not only with Volvo's, but the R line specifically.
  8. I would want to smoke test the intake before you move any further.
  9. Do you have a vacuum leak? What brand of MAF did you install?
  10. Several different sizes available for this model, but I'm sure Interstate can cross reference your current battery. It's worth noting you will need VIDA to reset the battery monitor, otherwise the low battery message will remain on.
