Re: Lost PSI on Turbo Boost

Check everything twice, and then twice again. Vacuum line leaks are a PITA, and easily missed.

Re: OBX Turboback Exhaust $350

Does not come with a cat. The exhaust is 4 sections: downpipe, second pipe where cat would go with an 02 port, third pipe with 02 port and hangers where the suitcase muffler used to be, and tail pipe with resonator and tip. Being sectional as such, it is very easy to bolt in a cat when needed. The c...

Re: Serious Brake Vibration on 850

I believe you have brake shudder. I fought this same problem for months. The best fix for me was Akebono pads and performance rotors. I tend to brake fairly aggresively sometimes, and my rotors kept warping. After buying drilled/slotted rotors, my junky old pads caused a bunch of vibration. Akebono ...

Re: Defeating the torque limit request on the Volvo 850 Turb

Is this a concern for too much torque off the line, as described in posts about manual boost controllers and improper wastegate adjustments? Wouldn't boost also rise quickly in low rpm 1st gear? I'd hate to see a bunch of guys wiring in switches just to end up bending rods..... Please correct me if ...

Re: Exhaust: The Budget Way

Fantastic news. MUST READ!!! I was on amazon, getting ready to order a Dynomax VT, but quickly learned that reviews are TERRIBLE. Apparently the spring trap door system ends up making the muffler sound like a game of kick the can. So, I increased my exhaust budget and hoped to buy an OBX turboback s...
