What Did You Do To Your Car Today.


Recommended Posts

Realized how hard it is to clean a white car.

850 is going to need some attention. Have a nasty drive line issue. Horrible vibration under throttle. Time to pull some axles!

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.

How and where did you get the tools to make it. I feel like mine needs to be adjusted back to stock.

Use the gauge from the fuel pressure test kit, and the balloon from the blood pressure kit to build the pressure. Bam.

purrs likie a kitten at idle, but the high speed missfire is still throwing codes. In fact, it has move lower in RPM... As soon as I start making boost. :tdown:

Replaced this as well;

I don't think the PO knew about the cabin filter!

And the dreaded SAS valve;

I also did the SAS blower and intake hose a couple of weeks ago, the old one wasent even rebuildable because of a battery acid leak- holes in the hose bungs! And in CA SAS delete is not an option.

I was working on a airbox mod that gets rid of the inlet restriction by using a piece of ABS 3" drain fitting to turn into the box. Still working out the kinks...

You can rent a hand pump from autozone or any auto chain and do it that way. I did it right in the parking lot because I didnt want to throw down a 50 spot just for letting my car cool. So I nutted up and put on some gloves and did it 2.7 psi

Actually there is a Non-SAS underhood Vac line routing sticker that I believe people have used in CA and have passed smog/visual with. it a factory Volvo sticker..
