Hussein's 1998 V70 Xr : The Force Awakens

Recommended Posts

Haven't been driving the XC of late - the X1/9 has become my DD laugh.gif

However, my revamped tune came today! Set for 625cc injectors and my 20g!!! Looking forward to checking it out! (still waiting for TT to release the ME4.4 I paid for back in July)

However... I have to put my car back together first :rolleyes: - I took the pan off so I can update to the newer style w/oilcooler...

Newer pan & pickup

besides the pan and pickup tube, what's else is needed to get this mod done?

All the pieces I show - water dist. pipe & return, turbo oil & water feed lines, oil cooler, new oil cooler hoses, all new seals & gaskets, a bunch of clamps for all the lines.. anaerobic sealer... about $100 in new 'soft" parts

yay! i did this on my S70 as well as a V70 i just built, if you have any questions feel free to ask but its a really straight forward swap. I did eventually put in a new style radiator and thermostat cap though, i needed a radiator anyways.

I wanted to do this with the kit from D s50r but wisely backed-out - I dropped pans b4 and unless there's a more compelling need like sticking lifter noise, I'm not too excited to do it again. I can't seem to find time doing other projects and this would have just added to my things to do on the shelf, lol.

Otherwise, a very good mod for 98 and below cars, specially if the cooler lines start to leak and one has time.

Got the water dist pipe back in this evening - I would NEVER do this job unless I really needed to - it's a royal PITA to get it in with the exhaust/driveshaft/turbo oil&water lines in the way.

Pick up tube is in... Oil pan ready to go back tomorrow..

I'll be taking some video once it's all up & running....
