Hipchecks 850 wagon wishlist

Post by hipcheck » Thu Jan 30, 2020 8:13 am

I am working on a 850 T-5 wagon with my 14 year old son.

We are rebuilding the entire front end (IPD sway bars, sway bar links, lowering springs, re-mfg steering rack, subframe bushings, tie rods, entire strut assembly, rotors, brake lines, etc) while dropping the sub frame I would like to do the following:

All new engine mounts
New control arms
New front calipers

Eventually I would also need these parts:
Rear trailing arm bushings (pair)
Refurbished Turbo
PNP Switch
O2 sensors
Intake manifold spacer (new only)

I was hoping someone might have bought these items and changed plans, sold the car, be a known parts hoarder, etc.

I’m interested in new or VERY slightly used parts.

I plan to rebuild this guy to last for several years!

Thank you,

Steve

As soon as i can get the engine head and block out of my V70 XC, i will have a 13G turbo available. Its not new of course, nor refurbished, but i could cut you a deal on it. I have to look at pricing before giving you a price. Im almost positive the 13G will fit because they are same engine family, the 850 and V70. V70/S70 is facelift of 850.
I think i can get you PNP switch; it will be FREE plus shipping.
1998 V70 XC black ($1K trade, Mi:145K, immaculate, selling electric driver seat, PM me)
1998 V70 XC white ($50 cash, Mi:unknown, dead, is the donor for my black one)

Future upgrades: 16T, logo/badge delete excl grille

If you have a 98-00 V70, interested in 'interior remodeling' ideas, PM me. My remodel: Satin nickel on dark walnut stained wood with shiny gray shag.

13g is too small for the ECU/injectors on the T5 850. No go.

If you get rebuilt calipers, get the slide pins from your factory ones and move them over to the rebuilt units.
