      Butyl mat does not get rid of drone. It cancels some frequencies. Drone isn't one of them. If a resonator doesn't fix it, which it may not, depending on what mufflers you are using, adding waffles...

      Pipe is measured by the OD - 2.25" means 2.25" outside, not what you are measuring. Volvo exhaust is a metric size, so probably 60mm. Whatever you buy will need to be adapted.

      2.5" would likely...

      What year C70? If it's the early one, the entire platform is different. In any event, there are no inherent camber issues.

      Did you try mineral spirits?

      Clutch, Are you new to a clutch? As long as you are not abusing it by burn-outs, toe-heeling it at lights or on hill starts, it should last well over 100k miles.

      No reason it would be any differnet than the S40 - open up the exhaust & intake, & tune. Unless you're going bigger turbo, Enem cams, etc., that's about the extent of it.

      See diagram I posted. GN-BU (green-blue) is the color of the power feed (from fuse F35) to the TCV (8/28), BN-YE (brown-yellow) is the ECU (446.2) -modulated side of the circuit (to A51)

      Description makes sense - but-- I'd say that it will matter which wire you cut - you would only want to interrupt the power supply (GN-BU), not the ECU modulated side. Either way, interrupting the...
