SBAus - G'day from Alexandria, VA

Recommended Posts

G'day everybody, Thought i'd say hi, I

'm an Aussie, located in Northern VA, USA. Work in DC. Always loved R's. Never had a volvo before so wish me luck!

I bought the R from a guy on Swede speed. His build thread here (lots of photos here)

Just some of the things PO did to the car.

All coils and plugs
fuel pressure sensor
fuel pump and seal
Timing belt
all 4c suspension
4c control module
Front and rear passenger 4c accelerometers
ABS control module 
tie rods
control arm bushings
IPD sway bars
IPD exhaust
Both O2 sensors
Snabb massive front mount intercooler
Snabb downpipe
Elevate intake
All new engine mounts
trans mount
Upper shock mounts
end links
Brake rotors
Brake pads
Alcantara headliner
floor mats
powder coated valve cover and intercooler piping
all new stereo
Full interior dynamat of the rear from passenger floor back, entire roof and rear hatch
New windshield
New OE cupholder
Restored console
Pioneer 4400 DD HU BT touch screen
JL W7 12" in custom sealed box
JL 500W digital amp
Custom made headlights
IPD grill

Started to sort out some of the minor issues. Currently looking at adding a muffler to the IPD exhaust. I do really like the note and the added benefits of flow, but the dull drone at 60mph is starting to bug me a little too much.

David Leach helped me out with a VIDA setup on my old laptop and directed me to the right DiCE. Happy to pass along his details if anybody wants them.
