Re: 1998 S70 Misfiring and Stuttering/Vibrating

:mrgreen: Will these cars even do 110 mph? My 95 850 T5 and 98 C70 will go faster than 240 kph (148 mph) Overtaking a semi with two trailers I regularly exceed 160kph (100 mph) by the time I pass. The T5 has a 19T and Lucky's blue tune and the C70 is stock. Both engines are 2.3 HPT and fuel is 98 oc...

Re: Volvo 850 oil cooler line seals any aftermarket alternat

Genuine only mate. Others WILL leak soon. At 320,000 k Replaced all with Volvo seals and I expect many years of no leaks. Pay peanuts and get chimps. Please be well advised with these. Cheers Steve

Re: 98 v70t head swap

According to Jimmy 57, The turbo heads 94 to 98 are a direct swap. As long as they have non variable cam timing. Cheers Steve.

Re: 1999 S70 Wagon Roof Rails?

That looks better than my attempt. Mine start and finish mid door, too short. Will start again with another set and unmolested cover trims. Like I suggested, Move the front forward and the rear back and it should look sweet. Cheers Steve.

Re: 1999 S70 Wagon Roof Rails?

On my 850 T5 sedan I removed the roof trims but there are no holes. I used Nutserts/Rivnits at 5mm to match the wagon screws. You can remove the ends and centre easily.

Re: 1999 V70 Alternator output

A good alternator will supply 13.8 to 14.7 volt depending on the current load to the battery. Internal resistance in battery cables WILL change this. Resistance by corrosion affects the voltage and the available current. Here in Australia no salt and snow so cables last a lot longer. A battery when ...

Hi Lee, The holes are in the plastic tube between MAF and turbo. Power and economy are so much better now. Cheers Steve.
