The XC with it's lower gearing*....
*The V70 does almost exactly 100 mph at 3000 rpm.
I didn't know that. So it has a different final drive in the diffs?

Is it time for a 1964 122 wagon?

Must have of you're not doing more than 85 at 3000. Someone around here probably has a proper list.. :wink:

Also the actual drivetrain gearing must be different since wheel circumference differs. Else it'd be the other way around.

Something the XC does have that makes me want one though is the 40/20/40 rear seat folding, the V70 only came with 60/40.

Can those seats be retrofitted and swapped, or is there cutting and welding of brackets and painting?

I liked your Sweden to Italy biking trip post by the way!

Also - anyone know what this fitting or valve is near there under the intake? It's held on to the block with a bracket near the knock sensor. The green printed number is 5093P1.

For future reference, this appears to be the Evap Shutoff Valve......
