Many thanks to Bmac,Steve, Hussein, and anyone else for answering the endless questions.
Car came with its drive shaft pre-removed but included. 12 total wheels and tires, a brand new set of R mats in the volvo box, and a stack of service receipts totaling 26,000 CAD.
Purchased at 121,000 miles currently 152k on everything.
March 2014 - Acquired many nice parts through the winter. Met Bmac and got everything installed and then had Steve tune it the same evening. Long day but everything has held together like new since then.
Snabb kit was a oh yeah! to install, lower pipe need to sit just right to make it all work.
18" of space was nice but we almost needed more.
Clamshell was not surprisingly rusted closed.
ugly ugly welds but it went in perfectly. Did require cutting the old downpipe to clear the angle gear.
Bens BIG turbo
Manifold and turbo and exhaust removed.
Nice new nuts and reused the washers.
Huge difference in design.
Sway bars are such a nice improvement on this car
Reused a front bar from VS, rear can be had new without buying the set (just ask)
Practice Safe Turboing
Tint and Clear Bra - No surprise it doesn't show up in pictures. The Tint Shop of Rochester NY did a great job. Happy to protect the newly painted front end. (barely visible below)

Prep the Front shocks for service
Found a guide form what what i can't believe is 10 years ago. Thankfully the pictures are still up http://v70r.com/forums/topic/1667-ohlins-strutspring-install/
Had to get a offset box wrench but it was really the only tool for the job.
Rear set still brand new in box. Really excited to get this all in and be on the road
Not sure if VS works this way but Saving this space for suspension and brakes when they go on.

Just made an account, hello all
Tryna do some work on my '98 V70R, the timing belt is from 2006 I think, rear brakes are sitting at 10% (So sayeth the local mechanic).
Gonna pick up the Power Stop Z23 Performance D/S Rotor and pad kit. Couldn't find any note in the service records of the rear calipers ever being replace, (and the first guy who had this car put nearly 18 grand into it) does it need to be done?
Also is this timing belt a problem? From what I've read, if it breaks, its a bad time :(
Thanks all in advance. Pretty green to mechanic-ing
Oh shitters, I posted it twice. Off to a bad start
