      MBC, are you sure you want to install on on this vehicle? I guess you haven't done your research.

      ME7 is a torque demand system. The ECU will control boost to generate X amount of torque. Having a MBC will cause the ECU to cut throttle as it will notice there is a problem controlling boost set point. Minimizing throttle angle is how the ECU limits boost in limp mode, you will be limited to 1-2psi to the intake manifold regardless of how tight you have your MBC.

      Where did you find this? On earlier Volvo's this may hold true as the ECU will adjust to whatever inputs are present to it, but in ME7 the ECU has more control of the outputs, mainly the ETM (or ETA). You can go ahead and experiment for yourself, but it won't work, only a true tune will increase boost pressure. The only adjustment you can make without throwing the ECU into a fit is wastegate pretension. This increases the onset of boost, and even that is very limited in how much adjustment can be made.

      I think that similar potential is there. It just needs to be uncovered by a laptop, not a ratchet.

      The most recent thing I did to my 2001 XC70 was to disconnect the battery and reset the ECU. Unfortunately, I also lost my HomeLink remote pairing, which I can't seem to get back.

      My car has been maxxing at 5 PSI boost for a week or so. I checked all turbo lines and intercooler connections and everything is tight and new. I have a JZW tune, and with the MBC (Ha, I was a bad boy) it was happily pushing 15 PSI max. Until it hit overboost just as Antherzoll warned above and went to limp mode. Pulled out the MBC, and it ran fine, boosting 14 PSI max and 10 PSI on half throttle. great driver. Until last week.

      Upon resetting the electronics, and driving a bit, it did respond and started boosting 12 or so. Now it adapted again, back down to 5.

      I do have an IPD CBV kit, waiting to install. However, with the 16T turbo in there, fit is so tight I can't even see the CBV to install the kit. Unsure as to how to proceed.

      Lowered it another 1/2" in the rear, sits perfectly now. Also installed an IPD aluminum skidplate.

      01 T5M.
      Installed EST's aluminum instrument bezel rings.

      NOT straightforward. The EST rings DO NOT snap in. The diameter is too large for the instrument apertures. So:

      Remove instrument binnacle. Do not use VOLVO "bone", but rather a plastic paint scraper (or similar) with a 1 inch width. Prevents marks on dashboard. The clips are tenacious, use some strength and some patience.

      Remove clear plastic cover. The bone works fine. Set the cover aside to keep it clean.

      Remove the grey instrument surround (9 clips). The bone works fine.

      Using 220 grit sandpaper (NOT 100 grit, not emery paper), radius the instrument holes in the grey plastic surround. NO MORE THAN four or five complete sanding rotations is perfect. DO NOT try to sand the aluminum bezels.

      Push firmly to install each bezel, but not so hard as to bend the rings.

      Reassemble binnacle in reverse.

      The quality of the rings is excellent, and they do look great- especially at night.

      /stay tuned for installation of EST Touring cat-back exhaust. For south-eastern ON SS guys, a complimentary test drive to hear an installation is included for a limited time

      T5M Leather Shift Knob and Boot Dye Job

      I like the OEM shift knob design and quality, but I never liked the Yugo-spec colour of the knob or the boot. So:

      1. Thoroughly mask off the surround around the shift boot.

      2. De-glaze the leather with acetone. A light, thorough rubbing with a linen cloth. Do not get acetone on the plastic boot surround. Let it dry. Takes a few minutes in the sun.

      3. I used Fiebings "Professional Oil Dye": http://shop.fiebing.com/c/leathercra...2707.72735.0.0

      On a linen cloth, I applied five light coats of the dye to the knob over two days, and a single coat to the boot.

      Be very, very careful using this dye. It is PERMANENT, dries near-instantly and is very black. Ensure that you have masked off everything and do not spill a drop on the interior.

      REVIEW: Looks great. The dye took nicely to the leather shift knob and brought back some of the leather pattern. Looks far, far better than factory "mushroom grey". The knob and the boot are different grades of leather, as the boot has a blacker, glossier look than the knob, but I expect this to dull down in time.

      4. The dyed knob/boot also complement the S60R steering wheel in my car

      5. I finished the knob off with a lick of Fiebings "Aussie Leather Conditioner".

      /I'm going to do the same treatment to the AT shifter in my 2.4T, get rid of the grey leather handle.

      Took advantage of the rebates and got Bosch pads and rotors for all four corners. Did the fronts tonight. All went well...except I didn't have time to paint my calipers. Another night...

      I did this as well but The socket doesn't have power. I put the right fuse and relay in but nothing yet is there a trick to it? I thought it would power right up.

      Get a multimeter and test for voltage and ground at the fuse, relay, and socket. Could be your appliance isn't working.

      Being that mine is always powered I'm pretty sure there is no relay, but I've not checked.

      Did you add a shunt in the RSH3 slot? There's no relay to add as far as I could tell.

      wagonfan00 got me off my a-se, and I blacked out the waterfall grill.

      An hour with masking tape, 220 grit paper and some flat black TremClad, and it now looks the business.

      Finished my data logging session for my Stage 3 Hilton Tune Now to book the dyno.

      Don't have time to write a full review, the tune runs great, boost is stable, power is predictable, and fueling is safe. I'll post up more when I get a chance.
