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

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

Started it. Drove it.

also installed V70R floor mats and door sills. removed my LED strips on my headlights and re-did the black paint on my housings. installed 99+ X70 sidemarkers

Uhh... weren't you trading me those for the lights? Do I still get those rear seats? Seriously dude. Are you just not paying attention when we talk about trading parts and such? Or did you really mean, "I'll think about it." when you said, "Yeah sure. I can do that." We must be on different pages here. Let me know one way or another.

Yellow - washed it (finally!!), interior detail including vacuuming, leather cleaning/conditioner, vinyl cleaning, etc.

Beater - replaced the POS firewall/heater core coupler that broke. Ended up having to remove the entire damn heater core to do the job. Royal PITA. Also vacuumed it.

Oh, and added +5hp :lol:

Finally replaced the leaking heater core.

Seems it was leaking for so long that the floor mat tabs rusted through, guess the previous owner never noticed.

Make sure to squeeze all the coolant that's soaked into the sound dampening pads. The old one in my wagon seemed to have been leaking for months and soaked up pads real well.

Isn't that job a bitch? I remember when that broke during my swap when I was filling the up the engine with coolant after I got everything hooked up. <_<

Yup. Doing it on my yellow sucked even more, because there was a damn amp in the way. Oh well, won't have to ever do that job again :lol:

Oh, I forgot to mention...When I bought the beater, I was told the heater core was replaced. Good stuff. When I went to pull out the heater core, it was dripping at the connection with the black coupler/silver pipes. AKA, whoever replaced the core didn't replace the god damn heater core O-rings. Luckily, I realized the O-rings in the firewall coupler are the same size as those for the heater core, and I found two good condition o-rings in the old firewall coupler and installed them. No leaks :D.

I'm just glad I didn't have to leave everything apart and wait to go to the dealership to buy two stupid o-rings.

Beautiful day out today, so I washed the outside and cleaned the inside of the car.

So that's the new car. 98? How many miles does it have on it? Very clean Josh.

New car for now; who knows how long. Still have the XC70 as well. It's a 2000, and was in immaculate condition for the age. Appreciate the comment Alain.
