Don't even talk to me about evap codes... speaking of which, I need to get my car inspected still. Maybe P0455 won't come back for a couple weeks.

Well done! I just got my clutch yesterday for my V70R, so that swap will be done soon!

Right on!! Just a heads up, 'done soon' doesn't mean what you think it means... :lol: It took me about 3 weeks of working on it after work, and 8-10 hours on weekends. That included a turbo swap along with a bunch of other unrelated upgrades, but I took my time!

Oh yeah, I know! Haha
I just discovered the engine/trans mount setup for AWD cars the other day too, so that will be a fun project... gotta figure out how to make that work now, because the M56 apparently doesn't have a spot to bolt up the bracket for the AWD cars' driver side mount.

It's back... my mistake for driving without AC the other day when it was in the low 70s.

Drove the 1999 down to NYC to image beautiful women , exercised the 5 speed coming up the FDR Drive at 2355, in stop and go, for 30 minutes. Arrive home 0230.

So you mean the pattern of 1 - 2 - 3 - 1 - 2 - 1 - 2... also known as "rowing" in city traffic...


Wisdom requires knowledge as a prerequisite, but knowledge can be developed due to a lack of wisdom.
In order to learn how to fix something, you must first learn how to break it.
