What Did You Do To Your Car Today.

It was a funny day, I was driving the old town, it was fun. I will go again soon in like two weeks. Will go for picnic, and have fun.

What are you raising it to?? I'm just throwing the MBC wide open. (Worse case, the ECU will get pissed and fuel-cut, but the tune should fix that.) I'm really interested to see how far that 15G can

no because you cannot mesh T5 and Pole... too much of a "stretch" if you said "waxed my rocket" that would have been better

Started it. Drove it.

Replaced the faulty coolant temp sensor, cabin air filter, then washed it and enjoyed driving around on a nice warm spring day.

Drove.

 

It.

 

To work.

 

Hooked up a compressor and blew out all the dust and leaves from the engine bay as well as trunk area. 
Time to clean it up, fix a couple small things, and sell it.

Oh, dont fret. 

If the s70 sells quickly, its going to fund another Volvo project, as well as keep me in Volvo's.

Drained the catch can.  Only takes about 10 minutes to disconnect, drain and reinstall.

I  tightened up the e brake cable on the XC90 today. Used the “cheat” way of prying on the adjuster with a wrench while I clamped vise grips onto the cable sleeve. It holds the car still now while in gear if I push it all the way down, so that’ll do for now.

EDIT: Fixed. Thanks Daren! 
The C70 subframe (with aluminum bushings) has the awd-style transmission mount and does use the 4 bolt control arms like the awd models. So it would fit without modification. 
 

With the M66, the 4 bolt control arm on the drivers side is harder to access.  I wanted to get away from the 4 bolt arms, so I started with a FWD subframe to use the 2 bolt control arm setup, then had the AWD transmission mount bracket welded on. 
 

The C70 subframe with brace fits AWD models, Daren @quiksilver has one on his car.

I'm running the C70 vert subframe with no modifications whatsoever, bolted right up.

Here's a comparison picture I made way back that shows everything is there:
