“As far as getting that red coded vac line to the turbo off, the one below the compression bypass valve, I sprayed a lot of WD-40 on that fitting from below.

As the replacement for the popular 850 T-5R and 850 R, the V70 Rwas unveiled in May 1997. Similar to the previous generation R models it featured a unique leather/Alcantara interior with diamond stitching on the seats. Further styling touches were a special front bumper, blue gauge faces for the instrument cluster, two special colours and special alloy wheels. All US cars were equipped with 16 inch alloy wheels, other markets had 17 inch wheels available at extra cost or as standard equipment. Standard equipment was substantially upgraded over normal models with a few options available such as a trunk mounted CD-changer,Volvo’s self developed Road and Traffic Information (RTI) navigation system or an upgraded stereo system.
