Re: Power Mods For 850 Turbo

Hey! There's absolutely an immense amount of things you can do. I mean... the block is good for about 1200 hp, but that might not be "simple"... In my opinion, the 850 turbo models are some of the most modifiable vehicles around, with some of the best availability of parts and misc, both OEM, afterm...

Don’t ever buy parts from FCP...? You trippin’?
FCP is fine - you, however, are late and haven’t read the stickies. ;)

If you look closely that's a home made restrictor shoved into the vacuum nipple
I see why you’d think that, but I doubt it. My 1 bar Kinugawa actuator looks just like that, right out of the box.

Re: 1996 855 T5 Sluggish boost build, Wastegate?

Sounds like it’s wirth taking the time to check the wastegate setting. :) 0.4 mm sounds a little tight - is that on purpose? I gap mine to 0.6 mm - I don’t have your setup - I’m at about 0.9 bar - so I wouldn’t know. Low pressure gauges are a bit of a hassle to find, but they’re 8 USD on eBay, and i...

Re: 1996 855 T5 Sluggish boost build, Wastegate?

Hey! Standard bullet no. 1: Check your codes. :) If nothing there, move on down the list. - At 16 psi, you should probably look into a new actuator, but in all honesty, the "rating" doesn't matter much. I ran a 1 bar actuator on mine for a while, since that was all I had when I thought the original ...

You know the smell of burning asbestos, its un mistakable.
I hope that's not something you smell on the regular - it's been banned over here for a looooooong time, and unless you intentionally look for them, I'd think asbestos lined brake parts would be unlikely in the US as well?

Re: "R" stamped on rim

The T5-R was pretty much loaded with most of the available stuff. As for accessories, the legacy catalog for 850/S/V/C70 is here: https://accessories.volvocars.com/LegacyCatalog/Pdf/X70_total_FR_GB_NL_DE.pdf A lot of that stuff is surprisingly still available from Volvo, but they do charge a bit of ...

Re: 2002 C70 Weird computer reset issue, poor running intermittent

Have you done a compression check on it?
I don't like to be the one to bring it up, but do you have any way to clone a new ECU, and see what that does? Might not be very cost effective to do, but you seem to be exhausting most other paths.
