Many thanks to Bmac,Steve, Hussein, and anyone else for answering the endless questions. Day 01: 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 May '14 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. Summer 2014 Fitting some poly bushings to rattle my fillings out. Sticker from the EST customer bbq day Nice little paint job under the hood Nothing Special but it does the job March 2015 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.
