Been a LOOOOOOOOOOONG time


Recommended Posts

Good evening everyone! Its been a long time since iv been in the volvo game. I see so much has changed from ARD going out of business to many other things. iv been in the Mopar thing over the past few years and I'm getting tired of it. Been trying to find volvo 850's on and off here in Arkansas with no luck. BUT im selling my Chrysler 300 and getting back into volvos now that im smarter as an auto enthusiast. Im looking forward to getting back wrenching on white blocks (if you guys still call them that) .

Welcome back!

It's slow here most days, but there are still some of us kicking around.

ARD has been gone for a bit now, but there are much better tuners now that are actually tuning correctly and more in-depth with better understanding.

P80s have been hard to locate lately, and the price has definitely increased over the last 5-10 years substantially.  
Locally im seeing stock 98 s70s and v70s go for 4-6k with 140-200k miles on them.   850s are commanding between 3500-6000 as well.   YMMV of course, but good luck!
Couldnt find a p80 v70 to save my life, so bought a P2 for what we'd pay for a p80 8 years ago since P2 prices are down.

I ended up getting a 2001 V70 T5. I wanted an 850 just because of the tuning options BUT ill learn to love this one after I replace the trans. Im doing some reading up on tuners now.
