1998 V70 Xc From The Beginning... to the End

Recommended Posts

Just read this for the millionth time. I wish I was just half as competent as you. Great build. I am super jealous.

Thanks guys! Haven't any updates as of yet - waiting for the TT COP ECU to come back from England...

Gonna finally rebuild the turbo today with the Mellet System thrust bearing kit. I'm confident that it'll be fine from hereon in, with the decent sized BOV.

I don't think your blowoff valve is big enough :lol:

So with the current setup the PVC (crankcase breather or whatever you wanna call it) no longer goes into the intake pipe?

That's correct, the secondary trap & filter just help minimize oil vapor & therefore oil smell into the cabin. Personally, I hate that.

Shaft has damage.

GPopShop will fix it for me :)

Bigger compressor (Garrett 60-1) & housing will be fun!

wait...you did a manual swap and kept your AWD? i must know how to do this. you just made my R the perfect car if i can pull that off!!!!!!!!!!!

let me know please!

Your sig says you have a '99. AFAIK, no one with a '99 or 2000R has a 100% functional tune for their manual swaps yet. If you really want to do it, starting with a '98 seems the best way to go.

More power at less boost, of course. Running 17psi to get the wrinkles out...

Have to retune for the extra flow (not to bad with TT), and remap the Apexi duty cycles for my presets.

Lots of rain at the mo, so not much more to say right now. Looking forward to Oct 23rd - haven't been to any Volvo meets since Carlisle!

The ones I have (10psi) & 15psi installed, are Mitsubishi units from Hahn Racecraft- the wastegate pin is much smaller than the Volvo/Mitsu style. The springs are really strong - you can't pull the rod out by hand at all.

There is also armor-all in there :rolleyes:
