Parts are coming together for a spring wake up.

Post by Ben850 » Tue Jan 14, 2014 3:56 am

Parts are coming together for a spring wake up. The '96 Turbo Wagon might breathe?

I want the wagon to be useful, as well as a street sleeper. FWD cars are not race cars. If anything, it is a fun car to let the person in the merging right lane know that he will not beat you from the green light.

Do not drive aggressive.



It is fun.

:-D You're itching to improve your R. It's a beautiful sickness.

(I too have some spring parts for my T5.)

I have more parts, and photos. This old wagon will have a new mare pulling it, with brakes.

It may be a sickness Matt. I wasn't feeling quite right when I ordered most of these parts.

I have the same disease. Ben, let us know your thoughts on the Snaab silicone piping. I too am planning some major work for the warmer months and the Snaab kit is on my watch list.

I did it again.
I've received the 628 R ECU, silicone expansion tank hoses from Sweden, and will be receiving an '04 S60R exhaust manifold tomorrow.

I Hope everything plays together well.

Look at the amount of plies in these hoses.

This is the actual manifold that is en route.

These may not make it go faster, but they look pretty good.

I wasn't even going to go that far, and now I am contemplating a larger down pipe and possibly Turbo.

Thankfully, I am not married.

The P2 R exhaust manifolds are equalled or identical to the P2 2.5 turbo's manifolds, FWIW.
