      I gotta say, I am so happy with this trade. This car has all the pick up and acceleration you really need for a commuter, and the body is so pristine that I'm ecstatic every time I walk out and...

      Technically the 2.3 has thicker cylinder walls. But if you're running 300-350 crank HP then either of those will work. You should get a little more low end torque out of the 2.4. I always default to...

      A few good things at the U-Pull:

      Tweeter housings, someone already pulled some door panels so these just pop out. Then you clip the wires and the tweeter pops out. I'm going to try to mount...

      My 01 was just worn out. Mostly the paint was breaking down all over it, and the whole interior was full of rattles due to the door panels having glue failure and the sunroof parts all breaking up. ...

      Gotta pay to play I guess. I'm in the same boat.

      SB does the non brake light one keep the internal brake light fully visible?

      I know that's all you do on the late P80 cars, not sure if the P2 is the same.

      Why the gas pedal, brake booster and master cylinder? They should be the same between auto and stick. Should be two pedals and clutch cylinder, with switch and pigtail.

      I am assuming, based on...

      Yeah those white squares, they have some kind of fine abrasive in them. I heard about using them in a detailing thread on another car forum and tried it clear back in 2008, they work fantastic for...

      Post pics, I like those wheels and want to see them on your car.

      I remember your cars but I'm bad with names and faces. But yeah I'm sure we've met, I go to pretty much all the meets. Sadly they've dropped off in the last 3 years, Brett has been too busy to...

      Being a C70 vert is a massive hindrance. It's a solid 3750 lb on the scale.

      My new car came with a large tailgate floor mat, Volvo OEM, p/n shown below in the picture. Other people's ads list it as reversible but it really isn't due to the...

      One way to see if the headlight washers are working is to park in front of a window where you can see your reflection or even a wall, and watch for them to work. On a wall, you will see the shadow...

      Technically I think the R head flows better but the reality is a good tune and turbo with supporting intake and exhaust is all you need. I easily outrun a stock R in my 2.3 C70 and keep up just fine...

      I'm pretty sure the dash symbols are regulated, and by region. The pictures are better for places with multiple languages so that's what they all specify. We could join them and the whole world...

      Not that it matters but you're mis-remembering, I used a S60/V70 wood knob. It was the straight key with retaining clip under the boot design. P/N 8671187.

      That's way harder than the regular procedure of just putting the sprocket where it goes. Ignoring the factory marks and then randomly making your own timing marks is a terrible idea.

      Yeah I've chopped bodies up with a sawzall and a 12" blade, pretty much unstoppable. But the easiest way to get rid of it is to just call a scrap metal dude.

      To get the motor out the top, you...

      If they removed the sprockets it's a little more involved than that, but still not too difficult. You lock the cams in TDC position with the tool, then line up the timing mark with the cam cover...

      That seems worse than just removing the alternator. If you pull the upper radiator hose and PS pump it's not too bad. You don't lose too much of either fluid.

      Maybe not, it's been a while since...

      These guys buy up all the Volvos from salvage and have large inventory and shipping. I can't really see if they have a warranty, but I recommend them.

      Even with a cat my Hilton tune jumped my gas mileage by over 3 mpg. I used to average 20-21 and since the tune I consistently get 24 with city driving.

      Nissens radiators are fine, I always use them, I'm going on 7 years in my C70 with no issues. OEM only made it 10 years.

      I wanted to leave the silver seatbelts in my C70 but the driver's belt was...

      This is exactly how my C70 is set up, with the addition of a limited slip diff. It is faster than most modded Rs in my local Volvo club, dynos at about 320 ft-lb of wheel torque, peaking around 3500...

      My 06 doesn't have anything attached to that grocery panel and I like it a lot better. Those side flaps always get in the way if I'm trying to just hide something.
