  1. Attention: The first 30 or so pages of this thread are outdated. Please refer to the M4.4 Wikia article where all the relevant information is currently being collated. Before asking any questions please read from at least page 30 on. I know there is a lot of information in this thread, but I can almost guarantee any question you ask has already been answered! One of the things lacking in the Volvo community is easy tune-ability for cheap. So, for the past month or so I've been working on tuning M4.4 for free. Work has been done in the past with MotronicSuite, however development stoppe

  5. In the wake of recent media events, I wanted to take a second to wish you all a happy holiday. In addition, know this time of year brings an increased level of stress and depression in some individuals. While the easy thing to do is shrug it off, if you know people like this personally you should take a moment to reach out. At the end of the day, no one person can save the world, but each individual has the potential to change another persons life. I am grateful to have anyone here who is reading this, and am personally available if anyone just needs to talk. Hope you all have a safe holiday,

  7. REMEMBER.... ANY TAMPERING WITH FACTORY EMISSIONS SYSTEMS IS A VIOLATION OF FEDERAL AND STATE LAWS. PERFORM THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK There have been couple of threads lately http://volvospeed.com/vs_forum/index.php/topic/132158-sas-delete/page__hl__sas+delete and http://volvospeed.com/vs_forum/index.php/topic/139442-another-sas-delete-using-luckys-idea/ that have discussed ways to delete the SAS (air pump). I suggest you read them for background. This will be strictly a write up of 2 ways to accomplish this. This has been a joint effort with Volvospeed members IPD-Lucky and Flaco both contr

  10. I do this about once a year so the OGs have seen this, but for the new people I pose something to think about: Think back to when you were a young kid. What did you want to be when you grew up? It was probably something you may consider unreasonable now. A firefighters, astronaut, super hero, princess whatever. The title is not important, but what is important is the reasons why. At the end of the day it was probably the virtues. Loyalty, bravery, responsibility, whatever those traits were think about them. Now think about the way you are living your life now? Would the 7 year old version o

  11. This is the C30 I bought to replace the XR back in September. 91K, M66. Had to drive almost 5 hrs out into PA to get it. Basic handling mods are lowered (Eibach ProSport), stiffer rear sway (CorkSport/ Mazdaspeed3), modified front camber with readily available kit from Whiteline. Grille was plastic-dipped. Wheels were meant for the XR.

  12. 2 months ago I was made aware of a very clean Silver '98 V70R that had been totaled due to a bent rim and subframe. The owner wanted to sell the car for the buy back price from the insurance company, as long as the car would go to a loving owner. I checked out the car out and knew I had to have it. $850 later and it was mine! I’ve had my white 850 for 8 years. I’ve learned the majority of what I know today directly and indirectly due to that car. In the process of learning I made a lot of questionable and irreversible modifications. I want this V70R to be modified with attention to detail

  15. The Little Red Wagon was chosen to be one of ten Forum Vehicles in the this year's Portland International Auto Show next weekend. Dropped the car off at the Convention Center this afternoon. First time driving on carpet, into a building and through double doors. Instagram pic. (to follow: @thelittleredwagon) The gf was along for the setup and took some more pics. (cellphone pics are cellphone pics) I will say, surrendering my keys and leaving it in a room full of people was a little odd.

  17. While Frankensteining a junkyard dash and my old one I decided to fix some of the common problems the 850 interior has. I removed all of the better upholstered parts to the grey vinyl to black. All of the plastic is extremely fragile. (I also reinforced the typical mounts with metal rivetted and epoxied into place) Using parts of the junked dash I cut out side caps to cover the common de-laminated vinyl on the sides of the dash. once you peel the old vinyl off of theses caps you are left with a rough surface that can then be sanded and painted with SEM Landau Black to create an OEM looking pie

  27. Some updates. About half way done with interior now. I will be replacing whole dash to charcoal and wood trim and all door panels next. I reupholstered headliner and swapped the rest of the trim panels to clean charcoal one, also replaced all the grab handles and sun visors with minty tan pieces from an XC in Lynnwood PnP. It looks kinda odd with charcoal, tan, brown and grey pieces now, but will be much better when all said and done "fixed" headliner Brush worked great removing backing foam remains I went with brown/tan houndstooth fabric, it's not optimal headliner material and didn't wa
