Nice work. Missing a flex in the exhaust. Could be the cause for added vibration. For the gearbox mount.. The M58, AWD, gearbox has provisioning for the outside mount. Downside is that the other side uses a different bearing for the driveshaft which also holds the spline for the bevel gear.
On my stock 10V without AC 850 the belt was a 1267. Probably translates to aftermarket 6PK1270. I tried to fit it on a newer RN engine with old style acc bracket with old style steering pump, tensioner and alternator but with the larger diameter crank pulley the 1267 didn't fit. Used a 6PK1275 now.
Will stay NA for the time being until I have sorted out the bugs and hopefully have VVT working. Have been waiting for the paint work which took way to long and was only finished hours before our annual Volvo meeting, we call it the "after summer meeting". Wanted to have the car on it's feet before that meeting. Last sticker was added late last night..
ECU is in and mostly wired. Injectors, coils and most sensors tested. Zeitronix wideband still needs to be installed, no exhaust yet.. Dash needs a few wires still and I need to make a check light panel. Ordered leds for it.
Installed the older 850 style aux bracket with steering pump and alternator but unfortunately this doesn't go well with a new style thermostat, I knew that.. , so I changed back to the old style.
The black out was a key point for me. :-) On most models there is no choice or option. You are simply convicted to the chrome or brushed aluminium parts. I believe there is a "sports edition" option now for the V70. The V40CC also comes with black trim. Weird thing is that I ordered this car without the badges which is an option why not leave the choice to the customer with all the models. 366 km so far. Drove the car on the autobahn yesterday and had the speed up to 220 km/h while trying to respect the break in. RPM's were still well below 4K.. Suspension is settling. Felt like overinflated tires at first but that has worn off a bit. A fun car. Even in D mode but then the start/stop and some other ECO stuff like quick down shift is active. There is plenty of torque from very early on. The efficiency of the drive train can also bee seen in reviews of this model and the former 5 cylinder T5. With 9 hp less the 4 cylinder is the quicker car of the two.
