​Thanks man! Yeah this is me alright! 

Couldn't keep on the power with the neutral engaging everytime I went hard on the brakes. Which is o so easy to do with my current setup.

​M66'll fix that right up

Lock the trans in L and turn STC off, it'll make a huge difference when autocrossing.  That being said, M66 is the real fix!

​any way to do that with the 99 auto box? L yes, then is there a relay to pull?

Yeah, STC can be disabled with the switch on the dash.  If you don't have one, you can simply add it and full functionality is enabled once the switch is added.  Nice, easy, plug n' play!

​whaaaaaat?
What panel does it sit behind so i can check and see if i have the wiring? The switch is dirt cheap.

My car was pre-wired for the switch but didn't have one when I bought it.  It's on the drivers side switch bank, closest to the steering wheel.

New fancy mounting place for the rear reservoir.

Should see them back in two weeks time. Nothing like having a car freshly re-tuned with new brakes and suspension and looking at it sit there .

Still waiting for my shock to come back. 
Hose had to come from Sweden (surprise right?)
The quest for springs in on going. Hoping Kalaphenke gets new parts in for the rear coil overs. 


Long drive last weekend and kept smelling something when driving in a fun manner. 
Turns out to be the output shaft seal on the bevel gear. I guess its not terrible to fix, not attempting it myself. 

I also deeply hate the smell of gear oil.

Some people are on the facebook and unrelated Volvo speed Group but my dad and I are about 90% done with the rear panels.

Over processed beauty shot.

Why not do the bevel gear yourself? It's really quite easy to remove, and changing that seal isn't too much of a bear.

​In-between floor jacks right now and I'm a baby about some stuff like that.

The pinion flange sets the preload on the ring gear, there is a tensioning sleeve inside that needs to be replaced, and the flange MUST be properly torqued, or you will toast the BG.

Hussein, what is this 'tensioning sleeve' you are referring to? Do you mean the crush collar?

As for the tightening torque, torque the P80 bevel gears to 132ft/lbs and be done. I doubted it when I heard it, but I torqued two bevel gears to 132ft/lbs and I measured 12 and 14 in/lbs bearing preload (10-15 is spec).

      Hi im new to this forum and this is my first post.
      i have a V70r 1999 
      there seems to be difficult to find a gearbox replacement 1208943. Reason for replacement is the gears are slipping when the atf is hot. I want to rebuild it but instead of taking down the one on the car I’m looking for one used I can rebuild and swap with the one on the car.
      my questions is: can i use other gearboxes F.ex 1208942 from xc70? 
      Does anybody here know What might be wrong with the one i have? No DTCs!
      Does anybody have A 1208943 they might wanna sell? Or maybe 8111193..
      other things I can do except flush as I just did that? 12l jws3309+treatments+leakstop
      where is the Volvo race mechanics ? 😅

      A slightly neglected but making a comeback, 70R that is just itching to find a motivated owner. Nearly every month, we all read, or hear about, another R selling for CRAZY money. This particular R is NOT crazy money. It's reasonable money. $4000.00 and who knows, it may be even cheaper. What I would REALLY be interested in, is a TRADE. STRAIGHT ACROSS. CAR FOR CAR. 
       
      MINE; 2005 VOLVO V70R ONE OF 674
      190,000. Mostly fwy commute miles silver paint with the typical Gobi colored leather. Yes, it would be nice if it were flash green with Atacama but it's not. Clean title, never been involved in any significant accidents. NO panel has been repainted. Has a few of the typical umps and bruises but nothing big. Interior is Gobi leather and is a little tired. CaR starts easily, idles nicely, revs like a pissed off banshee,  has a working 4C system, all three settings, NO CHECK ENGINE LITE, NO codes other than ignition ring and rear wiper motor. 
      Automatic trans with a new, Quality replacement, valve body including all eight shift solenoids. New, not ebay Chinese "reman" solenoids as well as all new proper transmission fluid. I have set adaptation thru VIDA only to find out that the VIN LOCKED TCU is probably "bricked" and needs a XEMODEX replacement.  APPROXIMATELY  $499.95  I just don't want to deal with it as I have other cars and projects in various stages of completion and have no room. 
      If I were to keep it, I would absolutely do an M66 Install as this conversion alone seems to make people go mad and throw huge amounts of cash at owners. 
      If I had the room I'd strip it bare and make it a 6 speed track only car with full cage etc.
      Yours; 95-97 855R  prefer red but any R color would work. Needs to be in reasonably decent condition. NO SALVAGED TITLE. Must run. NO more than 2 years out for tags. I understand how old they are and how crappie the interior plastic is now so I won't freak about a cracked or broken interior. PLEASE,  NO TOTAL POS CARS BUT SOME ISSUES ARE EXPECTED 
      Interested? Let me know what you're thinking and maybe we can make something happen

      Hello, 
      first time posting here not sure what to expect. So I have an 07 xc70 I recently purchased and have a few questions about some performance mods I would like to do. So this car has about 175k miles and I want to boost my horse power up to the high 200’s if not low 300’s it’s my daily and I want a bit more juice for fun but I don’t want to destroy it too bad I love the i5 sound and the entire car in general. What are some things I can do to increase the horsepower but keep it from killing itself. Also what are some good exhaust mufflers or kits I can buy that increase the sound at higher rpms but not as much at low rpms it just sounds so amazing at high revs and I want to emphasize that as I’m driving. Any feedback or suggestions would be great. Thanks!
