The car is EXTREMELY fun to drive.. It has some lag in the lower RPM's but when that turbo kicks in its a different animal. Looking forward to getting a new MAF sensor, custom RIP, the downpipe and custom 3 inch exhaust on the car!

Ohh you're friends with Bdub. Same city.

Took me a minute. Sometimes I field some pretty kooky users/registrations/posts... often by users who are posting on a forum for the first time (I think. Gotta be, some of these.).

What TCV are you using? If stock it is not up to above 12 psi boost even when new.

My 850 boosted well beyond 12psi as measured by a new iPD gauge with a stock TCV. 17-18. I don't recall ever changing it anyway... my memory of my 850 upgrades isn't perfect. I don't see anything in my email which goes back to 2004 with "tcv volvo" so I'm 98% sure I never upgraded it.
