  1. I think that’s the best way to do it on these cars. It’s not worth trying to redesign the PCV system unless you’re making insane amounts of power.
  2. Well that's the important part! Where do you have it mounted?
  3. Maybe I'll drive the V70R today... I have my E39 in the garage for me to change a bunch of cooling system parts and a few other things, but it's too damn cold to do anything. Spring can't come soon enough!
  4. Huh, that's weird. I've never heard of that. I always disconnect and reconnect the P2 batteries like any other car... key off, remove negative first, and when replacing, install positive first.
  5. The fan is activated by a switched ground within the ECU. The ECU received signal from the ECT sensor on the thermostat housing to determine when to activate the fan. Are you sure the fan motor is grounded, and that you're getting power at the relay?
  6. Lots of the bushings are NLA if that's what you mean, but last I checked the Nivos are still available from Volvo. Have you checked FCP Euro?
  7. Ya just had to say it, didn't you? 😂 It'll be over one day... hopefully this year. I've been sick of this since it started.
  8. Dumped in some more PS fluid... my pump was groaning bad yesterday. So what's that now, weekly it goes through most of the reservoir? 🤣
  9. Might want to ask @Simply Volvo, he may know where to find those. I'm sure SOMEBODY makes these parts.
  10. I’ve been neglecting my poor R... now that it’s become my daily again, I haven’t had a chance to take care of all the stupid stuff I want to fix like polishing and fixing the mounts on the fog lights. Maybe tomorrow. Oooh, but I did order some Kaplhenke delrin SF bushings last week. Those should be here any day now... gotta love USPS. Those will go in when I swap the rack out. It leaks fluid out faster than I can fill it!
  11. Contact Vast tuning, he will be able to add that in with a tune https://vasttuning.com/. However, if you're familiar with Tunerpro, you may want to take a look on the massive M4.4 tuning thread, you could probably do it yourself fairly easily.
  12. Have you been able to drive it since swapping, or this problem started as soon as you wrapped up the swap? It sounds like you're missing something on the wiring side.
  13. Yeah, I'm gonna be sure to keep a closer eye on my HF 20 ton press from now on. That must have been scary! Wish I could find a face shield, but those are unobtainium these days.
  14. I love the sound of my 901 and 4x50 amp. I've been thinking about upgrading the speakers, but now I'm leaning towards just figuring out which ones are blown and replacing those with junkyard speakers. It's sure as hell cheaper! Lol They're not too bad, but at higher volumes they're very distorted with more bass.
  15. Hell yeah, Evolution, Trial by Fire, and Raised on Radio for $8! Now to find some early stuff lol. I think that's what you were trying to do for your red R, right Jared? Black faceplate 901?
