  1. Finally a pic of the car including more than the engine bay
  2. ^^^ True... Not very worried at this point. I have a decently clear one to throw in if at some point I get worried tho...
  3. Haha everyone has said that. It cleaned up an ugly yellowish tank. I'll check it often and there is also the fact that there is a sensor. I dunno I think it looks sharp. Perhaps I'm the only one :lol:
  4. Almost there... Need to clean it up and do a bit of organizing and tucking and it will be done
  5. Most certainly sitting... But not for much longer with luck Dont mind the filthyness will be giving it a proper clean up once everything is back together...
  6. Been a bit since I updated this thread. Project began for real at the beginning of February here.. Still taking my time but am shooting for mid March to have the car back up and running. A couple pics of the progress: As it sat before I started pulling stuff off... After the 1st hour or so I spent on it. Stuff removed: Upper IC piping, Intake box and MAF, SAS Pump and hoses, Right headlight, and a few covers here and there. 2nd session got a bit more interesting... Stuff removed: Intake Manifold w/ TB, Fuel rail and Whites, Cooling fan, turbo intake pipe, distributor, plug wires, IAC, the rest of the IC piping and couplers, and a few more hoses etc that are getting replaced. (Dont mind the pile of parts on the floor Really need a spot to start putting all that) Also pulled the dash top off to pull the cluster and run boost hose for the gauge. And lastly I installed the cluster trim rims and blue LEDs for the gauges, odometer, and info bar. Next up is drain the coolant system and pull the stock IC out, fan shroud mod, the NA cam swap, PCV, then start to put it all back together. Having alot of fun with everything so far. Going from stock to what its going to be is kinda worrying me as far as the amount of issues i may have to work out haha. But im taking my time and making sure its all done right the 1st time... Ill keep the thread updated as the project moves along...
  7. How my cluster sits... The weather reported by Volvo: high chance of it being too damn cold....
  8. Lol or not... more like 2nd attempt....
  9. Thats what i hear... The Konis put a smile on my face, cant wait to run the thing thru some curves...
  10. Small progress update... Car is now sitting on the Koni Yellow w/ IPDs in the front and i got a local guy to powdercoat my ported intake manifold gloss black as part of a new engine bay theme in the new car. I also took the liberty of availing myself of IPDs Black Friday sale and ordered a set of the track spec sways and a pair of HD endlinks. Muchly looking forward to seeing how that changes the feel of the car. Am finally getting around to cleaning out the other bay of the shop out so i can get both cars in to start swapping parts for real...
  11. Thread hasnt been bumper in awhile. Just wondering if there is ever going to be a 2nd run/X70 compatibility....
  12. I have one in the wagon i might use... Cars not hitting the road till spring so I wont need one till then haha.. Have other more "fast" things to buy
  13. I updated the pics on the 1st post with some much less crappy ones. Here are a few more on Photobucket as well... http://s1141.photobucket.com/user/bigbigd2/library/S70%20T5M%20Stock%2010-30-13?sort=3&page=1
  14. Not really... Just everything bolt on/supporting mod I can think of.
  15. Well I have found a car to replace my totaled S70 T5M. Its silver on black with 148,500 on the clock. In great overall shape and really looking forward to tearing into it this winter. Here are a few pics to kick stuff off. The car will be getting all the upgraded stuff from the wrecked car: - TD04HL-18T w/ ARD Waste Gate Actuator and Forge CBV - ARD Blue Tune - ARD Crank Pulley - Snabb FMIC Kit - Snabb Intake Pipe - Snabb Short Throw Kit - Snabb TCV - MSD Ignition Coil - OBX Full Exhaust - OBX Strut Brace - Koni Yellows w/ IPD Springs - Cone Air Filter Plus a few new additions: - '93 NA Cams - NA Intake Manifold - NA Throttle Body - Bosch Green Injectors - ARD 340LP Fuel Pump - IPD Track Spec Sway kit and HD Endlinks - Maybe and "R" Exhaust Manifold if I can pick one up Other random stuff planned: - Black ABMs - XC Grille - 20% Tint - Some black vinyl wrap accenting (Unsure of wear this will all go) - Refinished 17" Pegs in a shade of Anthracite yet to be determined - Cluster Trim Rings along with blue LED cluster lights - Boost Gauge from old car - Etc Etc Etc Car will also be getting a full stage 0. Silicone vac lines, PCV, new cap, rotor, plugs, wires, the works... I think that about covers it. Goal is to have it nearly fully supporting modded and run it like this a year or so till I can decide on a bigger turbo/build/E85 etc. Ill try to update this thread with progress along the way. Very much looking forward to spring. With some luck I should have it finished well before Carlisle 2014
  16. Volvo S70 T5
  17. Volvo V70 AWD
  18. Looking good rob... The ABMs are nice upgrade... I want my car back now
  19. Went and stickered the outside of my car all up... I dunno its kinda flashy what do you all think?? And yes the car is filthy right now....
  20. These blacks look classy to me... Nice but not outlandish. More tuner than Jewels... I like them both really.. The Chrome ABMs are a bit gaudy i think... I know there is 2 sides of the fence on these things but all of the people i showed jewels and ABMs side by side picked ABMs hands down so thats what i went with... And the RZ retrofit looked thrashy next to these. Plus these fit awesome....
  21. What did i do to my car today?? Why I'm glad you asked... EST Black ABMs, Vast improvement...
  22. Crappy cell phone pic but i dipped my grille today.. Looks so so much better....
  23. Freshly washed... And in drastic need of lights
