  1. Went to the Dyno today to get a baseline HP and TQ rating to track progress. Found a Boost leak that cost me 20HP and 30FTLB of Torque, I new it was there but just finally got around to heading to the dyno.
  2. Removed Computer to add wires and pin-outs for future mod, booked a dyno run for next Wednesday. Bought a newish truck floor liner from the bone yard.
  3. Actually he wasn't offended with redneck, I said retard, and I should have known better as my sister is in a wheelchair so it is actually really shameful, I changed it immediately after I saw I offended someone. I don't mind owning my mistakes as long as there are Language police around. Anyhow I digress: Removed a XC bumper for prep to go to the body shop, and to install on the S70. Swapped interior for Leather, and gapped the spark plugs.
  4. I would have said this was the 5 th time today a Redneck has asked me that.
  5. Oh ya yester day I swapped leather cloth for leather interior, and shampooed engine bay.
  6. Schweet :) just wish I could figure what size spade connectors I need to bench flash, the ECU I bought has the wrong bin on it and I ham having a monkey of a time trying to find spade connectors that won't short out other pins and monkey everything up. Frustrating this. I made a big mistake and bought a harness for a ME7 thinking it was for M44 and didn't check the plugs before I dissected it. FFFUUUCCCCKKK!!!! okay rant over back to the bone yard
  7. Dissected a wiring harness to make a custom loom.
  8. I just grabbed a HX35S off of a tow truck, would you consider this to be a good turbo for the 2.3l I have read some good stuff about these.

      It depends which type of towing do you use for this, if you have to tow a light weight towing than its good, but if you are considering this for a heavy duty towing its not.

  9. Well folks the defloater is defloating. The install was a snap, and the instructions are easy to follow, I made a mistake and did not plug the tps in all the way and it came loose. The TPS on my car was in a spot my big paws couldn't reach. Thanks to Maarten for this neat device. Now I am just going to fine tune and possibly relocate it in the drivers cabin, after the car comes back from the Body shop. Thats all for now folks
  10. I received my parcel today in Canada so things will be underway soon. Stay tuned :P
  11. Hey there Maarten hope all is well in the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Picture looks awesome, very professional looking, I am absolutely stoked to get this up and running now but I am not rushing you by any stretch of the imagination. I am okay with any color on the defloater for what it is worth. As far as shipping for myself to Canada let me know what the final cost for everything is brother :) I will send a PM :)
  12. Thanks for doing this Maarten, I just need to make a Vinyl sticker for the completed project, what should the sticker read? VENDERBROECK NETHERLANDS
