      Yeah I got one as well. It can be a little much at idle. Not end of the world but I might either drill some holes or swap a rubber for the big one. The v70r cabin hums a bit.

      Drilling holes is a great idea actually. I may just get a new poly one because this one is rusting bad and drill it up

      P/N maybe I can run and check, they are like $300 new though I'd just google XC90 Trans Cooler. I got mine from ebay.

      I have been meaning to make a thread on the cooler since there is a lot to note, I guess I can try doing it tonight/tomorrow I've been too busy earlier I still am.

      I did tune for meth with Hilton. We did a bunch of data logs on my existing stage 2 and he made a "stage 2.25" for meth on advanced mode. So in comfort/sport I am in a regular stage 2 then in advanced it's a nut tune for meth. We also dialed in the start/full on the meth control for the tune; got it to where it pulls no timing WOT.

      I also got a new Mark II intercooler, it's skinnier than my Mark I so it should alleviate some of the tightness up there.

      Yeah I searched eBay with that keyword but nothing came up. I'll find it somewhere.

      Also, that's pretty awesome, makes me more confident to run meth now lol. Did you have to buy the 4C mode tune from Hilton?

      I found a few on Ebay, they doubled the prices since last year...

      Yeah back in May of '15 I got a stage 2 with the 4C modes.

      Then last July I just paid tuning hours for him to optimize the original tune for meth and cat delete

      I haven't updated this in a while so I guess I will now. I've been so busy lately it's been crazy but things slowed down a bit. The car didn't move from the garage from Thanksgiving until May 12th when I finally finished her and pulled her out.

      I spent a lot of time on maintenance, normally I wouldn't care to mention but I will to let others know a few things. I changed to plugs, coils and other items while I had everything open. I also changed the coolant and I didn't know how grot it was. I swapped to a Nissens radiator since I snapped one of the fan mounts when I first did my IC so I figured I'd flush it all. I was only able to get about 7 of the 9 quarts out but I then filled it up with straight distilled water to swish out the last two quarts in there. My car doesn't have a nipple on the oil cooler splitters in the back for some reason so I just took off one of the oil cooler lines. When I dumped the old coolant there was a layer of scum on the bottom of the container and it was way worse than pictured. I would really recommend flushing your coolant often and use distilled water when you do. The silly cow at the register in my local grocery store wasn't happy I bought all their distilled water but oh well. I used Pentosin coolant with Amsoil boost.


      IMG_2312.JPG


      I also got the injectors ultrasonically cleaned and they all flowed better across the board. They were pretty nasty to start and they were mint after. They used some sort of odd insulator but it works so I didn't complain. I used injectorexperts.com since they are in Ohio. Few day turnaround, owner is really cool. Be sure to send to their PO Box and not the address on their site, the address is actually the post office.


      IMG_2077.JPGIMG_2171.JPG


      I also drilled out the poly mount underneath some and my god is it fantastic. It still shifts really swift with it but the vibrations are now very tolerable for poly. I forgot what size bit but I can find out if need be. If I were to do it again, I would drill less. Drill this many if your girl is complaining about it or something. But it allows for just enough movement to smooth out the vibrations but still gets stiff enough when a large force is applied like during a shift.


      IMG_1668.JPG


      I also got my steering wheel reskinned by a company in Britain, royalsteeringwheels.com. I wanted alcantara but they can't do that because the shape of the grips are too complicated, it'l wear out too quick. Instead, I got perforted leather around the outside with Nappa leather on the grips and a Nappa section up top. It feels absolutely fantastic and it honestly changes the way the car feels completely. It also makes the inside smell like leather hide now, I bet our cars smelled like that new. If I were to do this again, ONLY use UPS to ship it and claim minimum value to keep cost down. Now UPS did lose it on the way back but they found it after I pitched a b*tch. Nonetheless, they offer the best tracking for international. Also you gotta tear the wheel down to the core including all the metal pieces inside, very easy to do.

      Be CRAZY sure you do NOT spin the steering wheel sensor (SAS) when you take the wheel off, it is very easy to do. If you do, you will get codes for the chassis settings and brakes and you gotta take the wheel off again, like I had to. With the wheel off, turn the sensor until it reads 0 degrees on VIDA, put the wheel and airbag back in then calibrate it while the wheels are aimed ahead and it's level.

      I also have a piece of advice for any methanol users that use their washer tank as a reservoir. I noticed after this summer there was some sediment on the bottom of the tank even after I flushed it crazy well before converting. After some digging on VIDA, I found out there is a fine OEM filter that we can use from S70s, it is part number 6800092. Take out the rubber grommet and it goes right under, get a new grommet too if you can, I don't have the part no. for that anymore. Also to completely close the system, put a transmission vent chimney on the vent on the top of the tank. I got this green one from Oreielys, just ask for a transmission vent. It had to fit over the tube and I hot glued it tight. You cannot pinch this tube closed or else it won't displace air in the tank when you fill/it drains, I did in the picture as I was cleaning and didn't want shish to fly in.


      IMG_2461.JPGIMG_2463.JPGIMG_2518.JPG


      I also did a projector retrofit which honestly wasn't any fun but wasn't very hard. If I have anything to say about it is that you make damn sure your headlights are aimed high enough when you start because changing it later will be a pain, if you saw my recent thread on it. I used hot glue and wood for the high beam sensor covered with aluminum foil to prevent it from melting. I used hot glue since it fills better and holds well. The shrouds I picked were a complete pain, had to cut away a lot which made them super lose on the projectors. Use a thick bead of black silicone on the metal part of the lens to mount them and let dry for 24hrs. Also Formula 409 melts butyl tape pretty well, since it will get everywhere... I took the time to polish and UV seal my bezels as well. Right now I am still battling their level, they were dumb low now they are uselessly high.


      IMG_2366.JPGIMG_2380.JPGIMG_2564.JPGIMG_2567.JPGIMG_2571.JPGIMG_2635.JPG



      So far this is it. I do have more planned along with a bunch more CF additions if you didn't see the ones above. I'll also be starting a complete paint decon/polish/seal next week while it isn't too hot out. Going to use Polish Angel products I think. I'll also get some wiper plugs painted and I have a new set of taillights I'll retint and will probably sell the current set soon. Ill tint these whole, I got over the leaving the clear part clear thing
