Re: Need help with strange issue

if it fits I think so. don't recognize that mount brand. This is a very easy mount to replace so try it. 1/4 inch higher would level the engine better anyhow. compare it to existing. I don't think they made a 850R AWD. Its hard to believe some one swapped out the rear and exhaust and engine mounts e...

Re: New Member New to Volvo

you wife is the first woman who even looks at the dash that I know of. All mine turn the volume up on the radio to mask the dying sounds from a transmission left in low on the freeway. Few people besides my self know that that a car can go 65 in low gear. Your real concern is once a woman thinks the...

Re: Wheel bearing Hub puller

I misunderstood, thats a great way to push the axle back. I thought you were using it to pull the bearing (if frozen in knuckle)

Re: Wheel bearing Hub puller

I don't think its a good idea to place the center of the three jaw puller on the drive shaft. they were not designed for high side load. If its stuck as most are, a slide hammer mounted on a harmonic balancer remover would be best. Great early video Orange.

Re: Power Mods For 850 Turbo

IPD's tune is very nice, but they should have been less conservative. it adds about 30hp with stock exhaust and intercooler. Milage is the same. high price though. boost is around 12lbs. You can mess with the waste gate and get a little more but the 15g runs out of huff at open throttle max rpm.. . ...

Re: The second heater core...

I agree that Volvo braded parts owned by china are not the same as the original unless its old stock. However that core doesn't even fill out the space correctly and needs extra foam to keep the airflow from bypassing the coil on the sides if I remember right. also I think the ports are too on the r...

Re: 1996 855 T5 Sluggish boost build, Wastegate?

If you look closely that's a home made restrictor shoved into the vacuum nipple,, It appears to be a piece of break line end. now I have to scratch my head as to if thats good or not. it would slow the reaction but still reach max limit of overboots. I would think it would allow boost to come on dan...
