    RWD swapping a p2 v70

    One winter in my old wagon, I blew up the front passenger axle doing donuts and drove it as rwd for a few weeks. Because the front diff is open, without the passenger axle, no power was sent to the drivers side. The angle gear always sees full power because of how the collar gear connects to the front diff. In my case, power to the rear was somewhat limited by the viscous coupler. If you were going to drive like that long-term, I would remove the viscous coupler from its housing and extend the driveshaft to transfer 100% power to the rear diff. I’ve toyed with trying that idea on a cheap XC but never actually did so.

    Looks like you’re off to a great start on bringing this wagon back to life! I’ll definitely be following along

    Nope. You get a tune from Shark Performance, Hilton, or Elevate and load it onto the stock ecu. It’s as easy as plugging a cord into the obd port

    What Did You Do To Your Car Today.

    That’s an epic trip! I’m sure I’m not the only one looking forward to your impressions once you get behind the wheel. Do you have any MPH goal for the 1/2 mile event?
  8. VVT solenoid blockoff plate. An easy option but not the best for performance though. Aaron’s tunes can have basic control of VVT on RN-swapped M4.4 cars and it makes a noticeable improvement in spool time. Go check out his latest Instagram post showing the difference in spool times on @B_Dub‘s wagon.

    Congratulations, that’s awesome Brandon, you must be so excited to go for a drive!

    A stage 1 tune is what you’re looking for, nice and easy. You won’t need any upgrades to support a mild tune like that.

    How Your Car Sits

    Thanks brad, love you too! 😂 thanks Brandon! I need some big brake caliper to help fill out the wheels a bit better but I’m pretty happy with how it sits right now. Thanks! Your looks good, Propus are a great choice! Fingers crossed you get that low boost issue sorted out, that stuff can be super frustrating. Lookin so good AJ!

    Volvo c70 Remap

    There are guys over here who make well over 500 awhp on a remapped ME7 ECU and Gustav has tuned many of them. ME7 is significantly more capable than M4.4 out of the box and a good tuner remapping ME7 requires far less modification to have everything in the canbus network work properly than adding Megasquirt would.

    Reasons for ME7 to limit boost?

    Clutch sensor won’t affect boost levels, I don’t have mine wired in and can hit 15 psi without issue. Have you flashed your ecu back to stock to see if it’s a software issue with the tune?
