Re: Brought home an S70 race car

The suspension needs a refresh. The front Koni struts need rebuilt and the back has cut springs. The sway bar is stock and I just happened to have an IPD sway bar ready to go. I feel confident about doing the suspension work other than deciding what to use. The motor and transmission are bone stock ...

Re: Brought home an S70 race car

I am surprised that after people look at the photos, they suggest using it as a daily. No airbags, no climate control, windows do not roll down, no interior. One seat.

Brought home an S70 race car

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1PXsTClSOTEDQloR-rxRSLtsdsEGwFqIh I am very unfamiliar with posting pictures. Apologies in advance. I’ve been lazily looking for a manual transmission (car or swap) on Facebook marketplace and found a very unique car. It was built for the 2019 Grassroots Chall...

Re: Significant differences between 1999 s70 glt vs. 2000 s70 glt se

The seller was kind enough to share the Product Identification Plate. The important parts match up except the codes are different for the “front suspension spring and strut code” A quick check of a few websites shows that the strut assemblies are interchangeable so I am guessing they might have used...

Significant differences between 1999 s70 glt vs. 2000 s70 glt se

I’m looking at a second s70 to use as a donor/Frankenstein.

Are there any big differences between a 99 glt and a 2000 glt se?

Re: What did you do to your Volvo today?

Changed the fuel pump and filter yesterday and I can't believe how much better the car is running. One of those items has been bad for over a year. The pump started making noise this week that couldn't be drowned out with the radio at normal levels. The gas mileage is already higher than it's ever b...

PCV Glove Test: Passes at idle, makes a big balloon under load.

I’m getting ready to work on the car for a three day weekend (fingers crossed). Have a bad oil leak around the front of the engine. Timing belt is oil soaked, oil on cam cover. I believe I have everything I need to do cam seals, water pump, timing belt, tensioner. This morning I began wondering abou...

There’s not enough for me to be worth it. Besides, a few S70’s showed up at the scrap yard. That’s like free storage. :-)

Parts to pull off a 98 non-turbo wagon for a 2000 S70 turbo Topic is solved

I am seriously considering purchasing a 1998 S 70 non-turbo station wagon for $400. “Believe to be blown head gasket but still runs.” Best case scenario, I get it running for my daughter. Worst case scenario, I scrap it and pull all the parts off of it I can. Definitely the tires and rims make it wo...

Re: Big project weekend. Need advice on best sequence

Turbo coolant lines.
I believe it to be the place of my slow leak. A lot of lines have been replaced in the last year so I’m hoping this will be the fix
