i have the same car and I'm trying to figure out what car does the 18t turbo come on stock. i found a forum that stated that they came on a 1999 s70. trying to comfirm this though, i found one that is made by dorman with a lifetime warranty. just want to confirm before i order. also what color fuel injectors do you run. have been trying to locate white injectors at the pick&pull salvage yard. can find blue,green, or a brownish red color. found a 2000 v70r awd that still has the turbo on it (19t) but have read that could bend connecting rods. that is why i am looking for a 18t turbo.

We are in the same boat. My 850 R auto trans has the factory 15g turbo. This is the setup with all r model 850(usa). I think only European models came with the sought after m59 manual trans and larger 16t turbo. Almost any td04hl turbo will bolt on, but oil and coolant lines are in different places on chra housing. Im looking at turbos from viva performance and ard ideas.com I have watched alot of videos on converting the 15g to an 18t by swapping the compressor housing and turbine for billet aluminium. Again this is the td04hl. Lots of info out there. Seems like converting is the cheapest but a hard job for someone who has never worked on turbos. Also weather or not you bend rods depends greatly on the tune,(which must be set up for the turbo, injectors,and any other mods you have). Wastegate setting is also critical to prevent early low rpm boost spike, which is a definite rod bender. My injectors are oranges, which are good to about 350hp and are stock to my knowlege. I would like to convert to a bigger turbo when i buy the full exhaust from ipd. I looked into the obx and other cheap systems. But ipd is the best made sys that comes with a cat. Which is required in my state.
