Re: Spark Plugs: Copper vs Iridium vs Platinum FF#32

You don't need anything re-tuned to use different spark plugs and you won't risk engine or catalyst damage if they have the right gap, measurements and heat range... I might have agreed with that prior to ~y2k, particularly on NA engines dating to before modern computerized ECU fuel delivery/spark ...

Re: Spark Plugs: Copper vs Iridium vs Platinum FF#32

OE plugs may not be the best possible 'configuration' that can be achieved, but reconfiguring properly goes beyond simply throwing a different plug under there. With something as 'big' as the spark plugs you need to take the car to a tuner to have the ECU software/maps customized - else at best you ...

Re: Spark Plugs: Copper vs Iridium vs Platinum FF#32

You know, those cases where voltage arcs between a couple of the pins at the TCM connector disrupting CAN communication.. Those pins are are separated by a couple millimeters. The voltage potential to arc across that distance is way higher, by a factor of hundreds or maybe even thousands, than would...

Re: 2004 V70 2.5T PCV Elbow (at Oil Trap): 30677388 ($68) vs 1271653 ($12)

Does anybody have experience with the IPD version of the 'larger' hose (for $30-something)? Silicone-Nitrile impregnated rubber should last practically forever if it's done right and might even be reusable if it doesn't harden. I'm looking at that should my '06 2.5T use the larger diameter hose ther...

Re: The How "Volvo" is your area? Fun poll

Oh my. Somebody in town picked up a ≥2011 SAFFRON C30. Passed it on highway 6 (location hint) just outside town a few weeks ago. Seeing it a second time parked in town basically confirms somebody local picked up themselves a beautiful bouncing baby Volvo :D :D :D That is one gorgeous C30. Whoever yo...

Re: Behr Hella 1/4 twist style radiator drain plug, replacement Not availlable

The picture of the hole in his radiator clearly isn't threaded. But I'm starting to wonder if that picture is of the exact radiator in his car. You wouldn't be willing to confirm whether that picture showing a radiator in post #1 is your currently installed radiator, your old radiator, or a picture ...

Re: radiator drain plug

Looks like Chrysler/Dodge has been using Behr-Hella for some of their OE radiators since the mid-90s through at least 2012-2013 that use this style twist-lock petcock. The design appears specific to Behr radiators. However, the Chrysler replacement part, though close, I can tell from pictures has sl...

Re: radiator drain plug

Valeo is original equipment. The Behr radiator is an aftermarket replacement product. Their petcock design is different than OE/Valeo. I see zero in Behrhella's catalog indicating they sell their petcocks separately from a new radiator. Nor can I find anywhere in their catalog or documents stating t...

Re: Awesome laptops for VIDA (and general use)

If they made those Dells with a touchscreen I'd probably be after one for myself. For websurfing I can't seem to live without it so I'll be hanging on to the Samsung NP680 TFN unless it dies. The samsung lappys aren't known for longevity like the true mobile workstations usually are. The speaker/hea...
