Simply T-5R, The Build Thread : A New Hope

Recommended Posts

I've said this before - what a great build!

Didn't see any info about what engine mounts are you using. The bottom ones. In my T4 I have very rock solid poly bushings, but it causes really strong and annoying vibrations from 3000 RPM. I'd love to have alternative solution. Any ideas?

I also asked that in your Youtube - why 3rd gear pull in dyno? We always do 4th gear.

Volvo OEM hydrualic mounts on the sides and the MRPE.se solid mount on the front (near harmonic balancer).

3rd gear for heat management. Not the best fan setup.

4th would probably be absolutely fine but i can collect plenty of data during a 3rd.

Ive been following your channel since june when i bought my 98 s70 t5 manual. 

I had put what I considered a fair amount of work into it until i saw some of these builds lol.

Was tuned by Vast and was running wmi went really well for the stock 16t (comparatively).

Was a granny owned 1 owner car that had never been abused and didn't want to be!

Bottom end knock lead to RN swap in progress!!

I was inspired by all of you...

Finally finished up last night..

After getting it together and finding the thermostat housing was leaking like crazy. So pulled the ps pump yet again etc etc.

After some gasket repair and couple more hours hoods on, axles nuts tight, and got to run it throught heat cycle.

Was about midnight by the time I finished all in all took about 50 hours for full rn swap.

Mind you was my first motor remove/replace ever and most my auto mechanical skills startes with this car in June.

Was going ti throw on a 19t straight flange they have all over ebay but the 04 t9 motor came with a 60k mile 16t turbo.

I'll drain oil tonight after few heat cycles add some more coolant and get some data logs for aaron.

I ran wires from rear o2 to vvt solenoid since im not using any stock o2 and hust the wideband. Havent plugged to power solenoid yet til I get the correct tune.

All in all wish i had taken more pics but im just glad it works lol. 

Thanks guys not this thread specifically but all the guys from this site inspired me and answered a lot of my ? Through reading problems of there own.

Simply, Hussein, Sconeman, Aaron and few more all convinced me the volvo was the project for me...
