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)
'Winning' Only two volvos that weekend so I can't be too happy.
Fitting some poly bushings to rattle my fillings out.

Nothing Special but it does the job
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.
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.
Recently my car has been shooting me with "reduced engine performance" and "engine system service required" Error codes. Yesterday I tried to replace the throttle body on the car thinking that was the problem. Once I tried driving it the acceleration was still the same very slow, and didn't go past 60 mph. So now I'm taking the other throttle body back since that obviously wasn't the problem. I'm wondering if its and issue with the turbo instead or even the air intake. Has anyone else had these issues? Please let me know.

after many good years she finally became a cost of operations issue.
Looks like we lost compression in one cylinder. So it’s time to part ways.
Odo is broken but estimated over 450k miles.
Interior is still good the leather is anyway
so here’s the deal:
2 sets of tires on rims barely half a season each, snows and a set of uhps 225 45 17
est turbo back
ARD green tune, obdii compliant, rear O2 delete
16t angled flange
IPD RIP kit with one-off red silicone charge hoses
AC Delco boost solenoid
BMAC replaced the head completely with a unit from that place in Clearwater Florida
lower end rebuilt
brakes are serviced with 220 brackets up front
Ignition stuff done aboot 18 months ago
just flushed and filled tranny, radiator and brakes last year
shocks/springs done 2 yrs ago with Sachs
many of the bushings and engine mounts were done
Look, the car needs work to get engine working 100% the car has its normal drips leaks and creaks but it’s a solid vehicle
Bottom line is there are a lot of good useable parts on this car, the tires and wheels alone are $1000. It would make a great project or just a repair for a daily beater. It goes like a raped ape when it’s right.
I’m asking $2250 as is. But price is flexible
the car is located in Burghill Ohio at my sons house. That’s eastern part of the state almost in PA, aboot 1 1/2 HRs from Pittsburgh.
Make an offer contact me through this site or contact Bmac if you wanna check me out.
