    Clutch interrupt switch on 1998 v70

    In talking with my mechanic about a manual swap a few years ago, he mentioned that 98 was the first year they put them in Audi and then other cars after that. Your dude is 🚬 crack!

    Did move come cables and tubes around, extended where the boost gauge feed is so it sits inline with another vac line. Also tucked the TCV and MAF wiring further under the airbox. More just looking good

    Someone toucha ma Spagett! That section needs love I'll figure something out with it for sure. Also Griotts best in show spray detail wax whatever. The light blue one 🙂 I had one on there very briefly years ago. I put one back on because I won that box last year and after the first road trip in the xc70 with it, keeping the tools, oil, other big stuff up there. I found it really nice to not have that jangling etc in the cabin. So it's a sacrifice I can make at this point in time. Really used to laugh at people with the stuff on top of the car but I kind of understand it now. I've got 1.5 sets of full rails still and I'll keep grabbing nice ones as I see them at the junkyard too. With all that I've got two road trips planned in it this summer. One to Deleware for a wedding and another to long beach island. So extra bits and everything would be swell to drag along. Thanks!

    Getting to the bottom of some oil in the cylinder. Looks pretty much like my catch can setup was a stupid ALL GLORY TO THE HYPNOTOAD idea and moving it to a good spot with proper suction is finally letting the built up oil through the intake and cylinder 1 and 2. That does seem to have now cleared up. Picked up a very cheap Snap-on scope and got some pictures in there. Those are the intake side valves Again no oil hanging from them Things are looking better and I'll check back in a few more hard sessions of driving to see what's cleared up. You can see the think residue oil that was living in the throttle body coupler. Had a good amount of the DEI reflecta gold left over from the fire wall work. Put it to use on my airbox. Not the biggest fan of how all the tubes and wires kind of have to criss cross there next to the intake and intake plenum. But maybe that's just reality of it. Also added a roof rack and some brand new rails I got from ebay. Washed and used Wipe New on the rails and rubber trim pieces. Got two full sets from the junkyard just to have the ability to pick through the nicest ones.

    FrankenMoose 2: The Quickening, Part 2

    @FrankenMoose What are you using for the rear door? Was considering doing some sound deadening on mine.

Angle gear big ring seal, yother rear toe arms, removed old air run from the pcv box and routed directly to the catch can, adjustable timing gear, front engine mount, tie rods, control arms, front wheel bearings. Reclocked the front brake lines as well to avoid contact with the wheels. extensive!

    Tuner4life's 1998 Saffron V70R

    @tuner4life Did you drill out the old ones? If so how far did you go in? I guess it's not always going to go into anything on the back side if there was already the rust stud there. I've got a riv nut tool I should buy some more corrosion resistant inserts and do this myself for the front heat shield.

    Not sure if the matched mud flaps would work as well on any other color!

    Nice! Always tempted by the foam gun thingy. What do you use? Edit looks like like a service truck rolling up to do this!!

    I want to say it holds on 7 or 8 of the square threads and so it had a large area to put it through, have to figure there isn't any play either so the"shock force" or whatever is minimal since they are attached the whole time. Really looking forward to it. Doing shims as well while the heads off. I'll need to get a before after video.

    Happening in two weeks is: Cylinder head from a V70R "Stage 2" port services with enlarged valves and "race porting" Manley custom stainless over sized inlet and outlet valves. While it's down and out doing the front A arms, tie rods, reseal the oil pump / pan (i think that's where this leak is coming from), and change to the new style oil pickup. Might delve into the axle seals for the rear diff as well since it's been gooey and cruddy since the day I bought the thing almost 7 years ago. Gonna be sweet! Weather was great yesterday, almost 60 degrees outside. Had the time to swap in the new stiffer springs. Going from 450lb to 600lb rated. No drives yet but the "knee test" we are all familiar with felt pretty good. I'm also happy to have some ride height back again. I also realized I've had the rubber isolators / seats in the bottom for years now. Pulled those out in the process. Note how much height the springs lost over the last few years. These came from @lookforjoe on his former wagon and have been on mine for a while now. At least 1/4" gone off of them.
