      I am getting ready to tow with my 2007 V8 and have a few, basic questions. Before I ask, I'll say that I did search (quite a bit), but found nothing really definitive.

      If by "DIY kit", you mean an R134a can with gauge.. those gauges will only tap into the low side. Low side and high side are different diameter ports and the diy kits will not fit a high side. So...

      Okay, so I am having a similar, but slightly different problem and I have a few questions:

      Hey all... OP here. First off.. thanks so much for that great information above. It's very helpful.

      Thanks for the head's up on the 06J tranny issue. From reading the recently started perma-post on this, it looks like the problems phase out for XC90s with build dates starting in Feb/Mar 2007. I'd...

      Funny... I thought at about the Yamaha SHO engine when I read that the XC90 v8 was designed by Yamaha.

      You said that the weak point is a tranny. Are you talking about the T6 tranny debacle or...

      thanks guys! Any other opinions on this?
