    Hey, put a connical shape on the end and acts like ram forced, worked great on S70 at 60 Km/h.

    I have a 2000 Volvo S70 T5 and when replacing the radiator my friend took off the cold air inlet duct and we didn’t put it back on. He said I didn’t need it anyway. About a month or so after that, exhaust broke where the turbo meets the exhaust manifold. It looked like a clean break—almost like a factory weld gone bad. Have you heard of anything like this? Anyway, I’m just curious if by taking off that cold air duct could have anything to do with the exhaust busting.

    Also, I can’t afford to take my auto the dealership every time a code had to be reset, and my service light and ets lights keep coming back on.

    Thanks for you time.

    help me if you can :-)
