Union has been established for 15 years in the UK specialising in the

sourcing and supply of well researched, well designed and effective

components for those looking to modify their later model Volvos.

Those items include KU lightened, single mass steel flywheels and

plate type limited slip diffs for both M56 and M66 gearboxes, a newly

developed remote oil cooler kit, a range of Swedish made Ferrita

stainless sports exhausts and MTE software upgrades. Prices given on

a web site shop include UK VAT at 20% which we do not charge for

deliveries outside the EU, so you do need to order by a separate

email if you are in North America or elsewhere for us to quote the

net price without VAT and a shipping cost: we also require payment

into our Bank account outside of the UK.We have

been racing an S60 T5 in the UK’s Britcar long distance

championship for some years now with many class wins, we have used

this activity to refine many of our products.</font></font></p>

what is going on two decades it is still great to see names and faces

I know on the site. Both Don(Kalmar) and Scott(FCP) are fixtures of

sponsored everything from new start up sites like <a

Carlisle registration is now open for 2012 at

This year like in years past we plan to have raffles as well as a few

additional surprises. If you would like to plan something additional

please contact Volvospeed and let us know what you have in mind.</font></font></p>

style="font-size: 11pt;" size="2">If

you have posted at all in the last few months than you have noticed

the options to use "tags" in topics where you used to enter

the sub-title. These tags are helping us organize topics as well as

speed up searching. Even though the site now supports three letter

searches, there are still times where you may want to search for

similar topics. This is where tags come in handy. At the very least

you should use them when asking for help within a repair forum.

Tagging a post with the model and year your car is will assist in

people giving you an accurate and rapid answer. For example if your

1995 T5R has an issue with the egr valve, you would tag your post as:

t5r, 1995, egr. Doing this not only helps us answer you, but also

helps future members searching for answers. </font></font>

those of you who have been asking, lifetime supporting memberships

will be going on sale shortly. If you are in a hurry, you can PM an

administrator and we will honor the discounted 20% off price now.

Please only do this if you do not already have a supporting

membership, or if yours runs out before the sale starts.</font></font></p>

we have a good deal of upcoming news, we are trying to send out these

emails only a few times a year. So please cheak for updates in the

news forum or on <a

TBs has a lot of good people over there, they are just thin on resources (moderation and funding). Everything is cyclic and I am sure Dana will get it worked out in time.

      I have owned this amazing vehicle and as I started researching, I found that these cars make great sleeper cars.   No one wants to be taken by a grocery getter. 
      I am starting the build and want to get educated on my car. Vehicle: Grey 92 Volvo 240 Wagon. Engine 2.3L (That's all I know currently)  I have began tearing into the engine as it died on me and has been sitting for about a year now.  Shop said timing belt was busted and wanted 1,800.  I decided to do it myself.  I am mechanically inclined but far from a master mechanic.  Anyways, I welcome any and all advice.  I am going for sleeper, and will update any mods done.  I want it running first.  As you can see the belt is not busted and since the shop wouldn't return my car for almost 8 months, (Whole other story). I hope more issues have not raised.  At almost 200,000 but prior to dying it was running very well.  While I am tearing into it I want to fit it with a turbo. 
      Again I can work on stuff, but tricking out, yeah not my thing so first question would be.....Is this motor able to handle a turbo and will I have to get forged guts?  Can I keep the same fuel rail?  Cam suggestions.......So on.  Thanks and I am new to the group.............

      Just looking for some feedback and suggestions. Everything should be running smoother now.

      Sorry about the outage earlier. I was hoping to get lucky and not have to take site down, but updated to php needed an apache up-date and restart. Over the next few days I will be applying all of the updates I have been working on so expect a little site weirdness. If you have any bugs that persist after clearing cache of Volvospeed temp files, feel free to submit a bug report under the support tab at the top. 
      Some of these updates are moving towards upgrades I have planned for this server. I hope to have the site running mirrored on new box within a week or so. New box will be dual e5-1650s for those who care. That should help with server side a good bit, but main bottle neck is still i/o. I saw some black Friday sales pop up on drives and ram. If we can raise a little bit of money we can upgrade the SAS to RAID 10 which should help A LOT, donation link in sidebar. So if we hit our goal that is the plan. If we do not get close I will just throw another 16gb in the machine and increase cache threads. Either way, expect the site to be a lot faster in the next few weeks, and hopefully I have gotten to most of the bugs.

      Thank you all for being patient during all of the updates. In the next week or so I should have everything back in working order. Fixing some issues with the Garage and the images now. In the mean time thank you all for being patient. For being so loyal, if you are interested in Gold Membership use the coupon code "loyal". That code will get you 70% off Gold Level Membership.
