Peacocks Wagon Build

Nice setup! Went with a j pipe and welded bungs but its not as clean as couplers. Plus you need to mount your battery side ways. 

Is there any trick to moving the cable's or the tray? My clutch line is properly routed through the air tray holder. I can't remember off hand if it comes out without any fuss. 

In talking with Hussein about how his was setup, I'm considering trying my hand at making an intake setup to rejoin it with the air box I used to have. Though maybe it really won't make any difference?  

Biggest concern with that is if the aluminum intake piping needs to be welded or can it just be brazed together? I'm thinking this would be a great project for this winter.

Of course! Goes faster that way anyways! I'm normally just making grammatical errors and ranting on. I use the thread to both show the work and kind of make a journal for myself.

I don't run a battery tray in the bay, I used a simple rubber cushinon steel screw on clamp and just secured it to the side of the engine bay using an existing tapped hole/nut.

You could braze AL, but this is a car... and it would look like shit. I can make you a copy of my intake setup if you want.

That's certainly a cool way to do it. The snabb piece is cool and the silicone bends to work for the most part it seems but like I side I'd like that to return to the stock airbox area. Though maybe that's really not needed and i'll be getting enough cold air through the front of the car still. I like the form fitting one Hussein made. That was neat.

Right now the lower 90* bend rubs the brake lines. Though i guess i can trim down the end of the silicone and tighten the run a bit. Message me about it if you like though. I appreciate that.

Intake and charge pipe are now on the car. I was told to get a 45 & 90 coupler for the new mini Snabb intake pipe. However I would contest that two 90* sections are the way to go as I was forced to leave the filter straight and not include my intake box (say what you will I like it)

I like that look also! Could always use the Jag CAI. I used a smaller battery, but turning the battery sideways works too...

Where were people getting those? Turning my battery sideways is on the list of shit to do tonight and that's a very clean install.

Sorry I forgot to take pics of my various piping bits. I do still have a couple of versions including the earlier aircan with the stock intake point, perhaps one of them could be modified for your install. I get some pics for you.

That looks really clean. I implore you to do the right thing and show me on ebay. The results I see all look like new units.

No Problem. Decent amount of time to figure out a permanent solution for this setup.

I was searching xj6 CAI and related terms so that makes sense as to why I couldn't locate them. 

What size inlet / outlet do they have? Did you ever talk more about the process in your thread? I can see this being a pretty simple solution to the intake situation I'm having. So long as they can flow enough for the turbo that is!

Old turbo and maf were flowing at 980 KG/hr while I know the math is really "loose" that would work out to 330ish from the engine. Could be wrong on that but based on the kg/s / .8 thing that's how it works out.

I know you're not one to chat/blabber about things, so you have proven data to support this I guess?

that would be 281.12 on mustang dyno...problem is you cant fit large enough filter in there , but if you cut out incoming hole in that canister to 4 inches it'll help ...but if you're planing more hp, i would not.

When I had a 20G I used that same Jaguar box and fit the largest filter I could in there, and it was still quite a small filter. I wouldn't recommend it...

The filter I use is the AEM 21-3059DK which is 6.5" in diameter and 9" long. I think that filter is almost the same size as the Jag canister itself. Granted I don't have a pre-turbo pressure sensor, but I wouldn't want to use any smaller of an air filter.

      Here's the story behind my new-to-me 2000 V70 R. Its gonna be a long post, and picture heavy too!
      This thread will serve as a continuation of sorts of my 1999 V70 R build, which can be read here:
       
      The conclusion to that thread will come later this summer, as I will be pulling all the modifications of my 99 R, and transferring them to the 00 R.  Now, onto the details of my new Venetian Red 00 R!
      My friend sent me the for sale ad on Facebook:

      Here's a couple of the photos from the listing:


      After spending a few weeks negotiating with the seller, I bought a one way flight to Denver, packed some tools in my bag (I did, however, forgot to pack underwear ) and went to visit some friends before picking up a car and driving it 1900 miles across the country back to New York!!!
      I landed in Denver Friday evening (May 12) in the early evening.  While there, I got to check out the murals of the Denver Airport, and see all the other bits that are the basis for a long list of conspiracy theories.

      Here's how it sat when I picked it up from the seller at a shopping center a short walk from my friends apartment.

      Shortly after taking delivery of my R, I went on a hike in up Golden with my friends.  The views were stunning to say the least.


      After lots of fun touring around the Denver area on Saturday, I packed my stuff into the car and started driving back to NY on Sunday morning (May 14th) with plans to stop at my friend's place in Cedar Falls, Iowa.  Here are some photos from the drive Sunday.  Nebraska was wide open, flat, and very easy to drive through:


      Drove through miles of turbines in Iowa (despite the picture being of a singular turbine).  There's a Don Quixote joke here somewhere....

      Cruising towards Cedar Falls, Iowa and got to watch the sun set


      Sunday's drive was about 800 miles, which took about 12 hours, and the drive home was off to a great, relatively easy start.
      Here's how my car sat outside my buddy's place in Iowa on Monday morning

      When I left Iowa Monday morning, my destination was headed to Anthony's (@apeacock) house near Buffalo, NY.  Monday held about 850 miles of driving, which was about 13 hours of driving.
      Stopped for gas in PA.  I had a hard time with card reader on the pumps though....

      Made it to Anthony's around 10pm, took him for a quick test drive, and then face-planted into the extremely comfortable bed in his guest room.
      Monday morning before I left his house, Anthony took this photo of our wagons together

      Made good time on my way back to Troy on Tuesday morning - at this point, 300 miles seemed like a short drive to me   I got to enjoy some really nice views in the mountains in western NY:

      Here's how the odometer when I made it home:
       
      The entire trip was 1960 miles, and I managed an average of 26.8 mpg at an average speed of 70 mph.  All of this was calculated from the trip computer. 
      And here's how my two wagons sat when I got the office on Tuesday at noon:

      Earlier tonight I got it registered in NY, so now the build can begin.  Stay tuned, this should be a fun project and I'm very excited to get working on it

      T-5R Wagon (1995), black, automatic transmission, mostly original with a few moderate suspension upgrades. Approximately 175k, with careful and regular service. This was a California car for most of its life, and is (from best estimates) one of fewer than 100 still on the road in the U.S. It comes with: IPD 3" cat-back exhaust; 4 steelies with snow tires mounted; trailer hitch; original parts no longer installed; and your choice of body panels and parts from a 1995 black 850 NA wagon (parts car). I am a motivated seller and will take $3,000, for the next two weeks. Contact me and I'll answer all questions, to the best of my knowledge, and send any additional pictures that you may want. The car can be seen in Delaware, near I-95.

      SO
      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
