  10. exhaust manifold flange differ from turbo inlet flange. downpipe exhaust flange differ from turbo outlet flange. Better way and direct bolt on, use T4 turbocharger
  11. My son has a 2005 XC70 and a 2005 S80 FWD that were both purchased totaled. From research I've determined both have the same 2.5 B5254T2 with a 14T turbo. My question is how many modifications are involved above and beyond just bolting it in (if this can be done) IE exhaust modification, ECU reprogram etc.
  12. Let me know if you go ahead with parting it out, I have just bought one and I have a shopping list.....
  13. Has anyone changed their rightside when standing at the back facing forwards, position sensor. It appears to be pop riveted to the cradle, but how you remove them????/then re attach the new one. Just wondering if anyone has done this repair and what method they used.... Cheers Bob

From a guy who is the original owner and he stated the car never been over 45mph..He lives on a Island that you have to take a ferry to and from and the fastest speed limit is 45..(Hippie land)...So I want to start upgrading the performance and have no clue where to start..0stage? HELP!!! Lol

  18. Getting ready to reluctantly part out my 2006 V70R. Wanted to see if anyone is interested in buying the car whole with all its upgrades before I part it out. Below is the list of equipment on the car, much of it IPD upgrades. The front bumper has been ripped off, the right front wheel damaged, and the passenger-side mirror destroyed. Overall not that bad, but my insurance totaled it. Black exterior, Nordkap blue leather interior. Engine, turbo and auto trans have 104k miles - were working perfectly up until I wrecked it. All fluids had been changed with premium OEM-spec fluids. Pegasus black 17" rims (3 good, one heavily damaged) Locking lug nut set R spoiler IPD ECU tune (19 psi) IPD differential module cover IPD heavy duty turbo control valve Forge compressor bypass valve IPD sport exhaust system, 3" downpipe and cat-back IPD performance intercooler and silicone intercooler pipes New Volvo OEM radiator IPD stainless steel brake lines IPD strut bar conversion kit IPD polyurethane upper motor mount Heavy-duty oil cooler IPD aluminum skid plate Car is located in Richmond, VA.

  20. that skid plate from every tech I've ever talked to is not recommended. It traps to much heat in the engine bay by blocking air flow.

  23. Cool! Welcome.
  24. is this possible. how would one do it without throwing codes?
  25. Right on! Just watched a video..... Thanks Again
  26. I’d be willing to bet the fuel filter is leaking. It’s an external filter on the underside of the car. Very cheap and easy fix. $25 part and 10-15 minutes with a pair of pliers and some rags. Search on on YouTube for diy videos. Super easy. Part can be had at Walmart or any autopart store.
  27. I have been smelling gas over the past few days and realized gas is dripping about 1.5' forward of the passenger rear wheel and 6" in from the body underneath..... common on problem here with 2004 R models? any help here?
