      Did you do it hot? That's still pretty great compression, must run like a charm?

      Besides my current AWD issue, it runs like a champ

      I also did it cold.

      155-145-155-150-135

      #5 cold was a bit concerning, could have been a poor seal on the gauge, but the hot numbers are good. I don't trust the gauge's accuracy for true compression, but it's good to see that the numbers are quite even.

      more boredom while cleaning up

      Yep, also cleaned injectors today. All within spec with great spray pattern, not bad for 200k miles on them.

      Good old Bosch quality for you. Are you running blue injectors?

      That's quite the bummer on the AWD, it's unfortunate Volvo didn't build things a little sturdier. On the bright side that's probably the least bad of problems you could have=)

      Not Volvo, but Haldex. Still pulls quite nicely without AWD in dry conditions

      So in the pull video- the light that flashes for a moment is the awd? I missed something. What happened to yours? That's wicked cool. You should be proud with those results. That thing kicks.

      Thanks guy, would be much better with AWD and the car cleared out. (two kids seats unoccupied of course, tools, and so on)

      That flashing light is traction control, (you can see that boost is puled slightly, should be 15-17psi), or else the wheels would have kept spinning once traction was broken.

      Cool. Out of curiosity, are you partial to a certain brand of gas? Shell 91 has been proven to be the best we can get here in the west. Nothing here can compare to 92 from the US though

      Nope, I'll fill up at any of the big name stations that offer 93/94. Usually it's 94 Petro-Canada that I use because it's close to me, but If 94/93 is unavailable I'll go to shell for 91 + airmiles .

      I have a few threads on various topics/issues:

      17" Tire Options - Discussion on which tires I should fit onto my recently aquired set of ghetto thors.

      DEM-0006, and intermittent AWD. Just in time for winter. - Issue with the AWD.

      Hard Start - Residual Fuel Pressure Issue - Issue with leaking injectors. Had them cleaned recently and they started to leak a few days after. Already have a new set to go in.

      Great...

      Driving down the highway and a large stone flew up from nowhere and hit my windshield right close to th PS wiper blade in the black area. Instant spider crack spreading about 10"-12" from the impact site. Time to search for a replacement.

      I actually think the rain sensor is quite useless so I don't really care if it works.

      I very much like the rain sensor... I hate wiper blades, they annoy me more than I really know how to express. Rain sensors somehow make them a little less annoying!

      Yeah, I'm always finding that I have to adjust the sensitivity of the sensor because sometimes they don't go fast enough and other times too fast.

      If I can find a windshield that compatible then that's a bonus. I'll see who offers gl from Pilkington local to me.

      Also this. It's 2015, time for a better solution. Tiny high-powered vacuum vents surrounding the glass that immediately disperse water???

      The post 04 rain sensor logic is so much better. Worked great in my Mom's XC70 until the windshield replacement made it break. Still haven't figured it out almost a year later. That being said the rain sensor in my R still works pretty well... And given the 04 RS equipped cars (and I think the 05-07 ones too it's been awhile so correct me if I'm wrong) have no intermittent wipes it's pretty useful... You have to put in a rain sensor windshield or the rain sensor is going to dangle... unless you remove it. I find rain-x makes it work better. No clue why.

      Yeah Rain-X makes it works better because you don't need to use the wipers at all with a good coating. I use that stuff religiously.

      When changing the windshield you may also have to change the rain sensor if you care about it working. The adhesive stuff doesn't always re-adhere to the windshield a second time. If you get a used glass, request the sensor to not be disturbed if possible.

      Haha, this reminds me of a 09 Mercedes CL550 I nearly bought. I quoted insurance and the cost for the glass replacement portion was quite expensive. I looked it up and the car has a $2,000 windshield. I should look up the new S-coupe and see what that glass runs. I believe they actually have air vents in between laminated glass to allow the windshield to be "heated."

      Volvo glass is creeping up there to. I put a windshield in a 2010 S80 with rain and city safety and that glass is over $800.

      But I'm in a similar boat as you, though not as obviously. I probably need to a glass for my XC, as the previous owner got way too liberal with the ice scraper and scratched the glass. Most of the time it's not noticeable, but when the sun hits it just right, it's difficult to see.

      $550CAD+Taxes from SpeedyGlass for OEM w/rain sensor.

      Volvo wants $700 just for the windshield. Looks like I'll be going to Speedy.

      Yeah I know. Speedy is using Pilkington, at least that's what the sales rep told me. That price includes installation. I'll be glad to have a new windshield because mine was a bit scratched and chipped, but a new windshield before winter , hope it survives.

      whatever it's worth, in the states the windshield is $400 and includes a rain sensor.

      Yeah, I saw Tasca's price. I'm jealous of American pricing, that's about it.

      Maybe I should take a drive down to Buffalo and find a shop to do it, get tires at the same time. Think the Customs Officer would notice .

      I have all my parts (for four Volvo's - WTH???) shipped to a US mail house as I am 1/2 hour from the Washington border and have a NEXUS pass which pretty much eliminates border waits. I am honest with my declarations as to value and am generally waived through with up to $250 (US$) in value of goods. I actually did purchase tires at a Costco as part of a US trip for a previous vehicle and only got asked about them when crossing 1.5 years later - go figure. A windshield install would be a pretty safe bet to NOT get queried. The current exchange rate is certainly playing havoc with my buying habits however.

      So after a 1.5 years with the poly mounts I've change out the upper engine mount back to the stock square mount. Stated last year that the colder weather made the mounts less flexible an caused more vibrations, and this year I find that I'm less tolerant of it. The stock mount eliminated a lot of what I was feeling at idle.

      I still have the poly transmission mount, strut mount inserts, and the small bushing on the stabilizer bar. The ride still feels very connected, but I've also thought about changing out the transmission mount back to stock, maybe just changing out the small bushing for poly.

      I rode in a friend of mine's S60 the other day and I thought the entire car was falling apart from the vibrations.
      I commented that it seemed someone should look at his engine mounts in the very near future.
      He responded, "yea, all my engine mounts were bad, so I switched them all out for poly mounts. Reviews said there would be increased vibration, but I thought to myself, 'how bad could it be?"

      Well.... Poly mounts, they are the epic suck.

      Honestly it wasn't that bad, only at idle and my tune has the idle RPM bumped to 750-800rpm which has made a world of difference, even with the stock mounts.

      Mine were all from powerflex, unsure if other manufacturers are softer/harder.
