what jetex pipes are you using? are they the ones i linked, the 850 ones at 2.5"? I just wish they were larger than 2.5" but I guess it really doesnt matter with a stock frame turbo and 3" leading up to this system

Just the 2 main pipe from this package. I think it was about $300 shipped.

So many parts to put back in. Hoping to get it done by this weekend so I can drive it for a week before making the trip to Carlisle.

Pulled new Parking Brake Lines. The other came out in pieces.

Nice work! I'm partial to silver P80 AWD wagons . All you need to really do next is manual swap. Transforms the wagon :D

Thank you. Your P80 has been an inspiration. Im on the lookout for a clean XC bumper. Looks so good on yours.

Manual conversion is definitely happening. Hopefully sooner rather than later.

Rear 330mm setup is massive compared to the old. Can wait to bed them and then try them out.

Still have one of my modded XC bumpers (1st version with medium size opening), and modded 960 lip if you're interested. I had it freshly repainted shortly before the car's demise. Center grille has to be made, I think I have two stock grilles for that.IMG_9129.JPG.58669f01292912004f257696113ebc67.JPG

I understand. I have not made any effort to sell it, so keep it in mind if you are interested. If & when you are ready, just get it touch. No worries either way.

Hit 2 major-ish snafus. 

Found out my front "Big Red" caliper are the wrong models. 

The part number showed correct in a couple of resources and they bolt up to the adapters perfectly. However, they do not fit over 32mm rotor. These are meant for a 28mm rotor. I couldnt find a Volvo 330x28 rotor, so im going to use a set of 320x28 for now.

Porsche Caliper PN: 996.351.426

Second issue is a separated rear inner CV joint. I was putting it into the new hub/ bearing and I think it popped loose. I wanted to replace them anyway, but was hoping to wait a couple weeks. Replacement Axle should be here Wed/ thurs.

You might be able to find Audi discs in that size and slightly bore the holes because guess what rotors B6 guys use with certain calipers... P2R discs. Just a thought

Went for a cruise. Car drives amazing, but needs some adjustments and tweaks.
