Re: 2003 V70 T5 Key Swap

So here's a wild concept.... I've been doing some digging around the wiring diagrams and such and came to an odd conclusion.. if the part numbers are the same what's stopping me from simply pulling the CEM out of the donor car. Since it already has the key programmed into it and it's also a v70. Is ...

Resetting the Cams

I'm currently rebuilding a 2003 V70 T5 head (B5234T3) and, foolishly, I removed both sprockets from each cam when I was uninstalling the cams and cam cover, rather than just lift up the cams and sprockets as one piece.

3.5" full straight pipe for sale!

Ok so I once owned a 1998 v70 glt and loved it! But unfortunately some jackwagon in a stolen truck wrecked into me rendering the car inoperable!
