      I have the same kind of problem, vibration at highway speeds, and it seems to sometimes smoothen periodically and then worsen again (just as Exocet said I suspect in at out of phase vibrating...

      I have tried to record a couple of pulls for my own comparisons... Of course these are not gps and taking advantage of the cold weather.

      I think the aluminum can soften at high temps and expand out between the cylinders, which gives less support for the liner. Also, if the aluminum separates even...

      Great content! Looking forward to seeing how this moves with the AWD :D
      Even if this is not a track car, it would be fun to see how it moves out of some corners.

      I have had the no high idle situation occur, when then the engine management system has a fault. A faulty MAF, MAP, O2 sensor related codes... But good if you get your situation sorted.

      I tried to get mine off with a breaker bar and as long extension I could fit under car... Didn't have enough strength to loosen it. Finally got it off with an impact gun. I was initially planning to...

      Just lifting foot from the brake doesn't make the front wheels loose grip. So that problem has nothing to do with the angle gear and collar sleeve (though I'm not saying they couldn't be worn of...

      Really interesting, since I too have Hilton stg 2+ S40 AWD. My gauge shows 18-19 psi, but it's a cheap one cheap one and not very accurate. Vida shows a bit lower readings from boost sensor last time...

      I thought the front is designed to crumble in to soften the impact?
      On the other hand, sides of the car are designed to not crumble in?

      I think Hilton stg 2+ is ~Shark/Rica stg 3 power levels, though that is only my guess.
      For me it's been great so far, plenty of torque for daily with zero knock retard. Still thinking of K16 + cams...

      It seems I'm getting torque to the rear wheels even with a light acceleration. Never noticed "a kick" and drifts very effortlessly in the winter. Maybe previous owner has changed the controller,...

      I don't know about the OP, but for me the light switch is always at 12 o'clock :) I realized there probably are two switches in the stalk, since pulling a little activates the "volatile mode" and...

      I also have this issue occasionally with my 2005 S40. Most of of the time switching works, but sometimes not. When it doesn't and going from low to high, it works like flashing the high beams, in...

      Highway driving like that is much easier on the motor and oil than average. In that case, I think changing good synthetic oil every 5k is way overkill.

      As long as you have the belt on there's no trouble (if you take the belt off and rotate the crank much you could hit vales). Then just align the timing, mark the belt and pulleys, transfer marks to...

      Hehe, thanks. Sometimes I think I might want it a bit louder, but then again it could easily get too loud, so I guess it's about perfect now. I have never been in a stock T5 so it's hard to say how...

      Update since original issue: I decided to go with Hilton. First got stage 2 with torque limit delete and some time later upgraded to stage 2+ ("stock K04 turbo all out"). So far so good. I'm...

      I recently changed one of my rear wheel bearings. Luckily the area wasn't quite as badly rusted, but I still needed to give a bit of heat to one of the four torx screws to get it off. In the end it...

      Are you on stock IC? Unless your pulls only last 1 sec, it's a bit hard to believe your intake temps would be only 11 C over ambient after a couple of pulls.
      I think I got something like 40 C IAT...

      I think the idea is to take the TCV out of the equation and see how much "base boost" you have with just the wastegate spring. That's basically the same as running at 0% TCV duty cycle. It will...

      I have thought of this as well, just for fun. Two K04 (in parallel) would be interesting, but in any case packaging them behind the engine of P1 with all the piping clearing frame etc would be quite...

      I got similar issues that were caused by rocks caught in between the brake shield and rotor. I mostly fix them by bending the bottom part of the brake shield away from the rotor, and sometimes a rock...

      Thanks for this write up - I just did the timing belt change with all the pulleys and water pump on my S40 T5.

      For me, the hardest part was actually getting all the old stuff off, some of the...

      Finally got the rear wheel bearing/hub assy changed with the right part. It cured the vibration and noise. It was relatively easy job and now the car drives smooth. :partywave:

      Update:
      I received my rear wheel bearing/hub. With a bit of work got the old unit out and it is definitely shot.
      However... Curses, curses, curses, the new bearing I got does not fit this car...

      Sounds interesting. I hope it's just the bearing for me too, but let's see once I get it.

      As a side note, it's crazy how much the rear diff/haldex box twists around under acceleration. It seems be...
