      ScottishBrick's 2000 V70 T5 Mystic Silver/Charcoal Wagon

      Yes, a 2000 T5 Wagon! PRND321 shifter, 11/99 build date, solid lifters!

      211k.

      And so begins $300 wagon round 2!

      Plan is to resurrect this beauty (2 owner & 1 since 2005) to her glory and do some stage zero plus stuff I've dialed in on the other wagons.

      ZLine A/S inbound, 302s ready, better seats on hand. Just need to get a MSM 426 hood and ecodes.....or jewels?!?

      Yea......it's one of 2. Afaik there were only 2 t5 wagons imported for "2000" outside of OSD/special order.

      Super cool and actually it makes it very easy to work on it'll be post all RN evolution crap coolant/oil supply to turbo wise.

      Now we have 4 essential identical cars in the fleet. Pewter, emerald, t5xc and 00 t5. Gotta name them! 940s are phasing out. 740 will stay since it's batsh*t

      Yes, Grecian Volvo will corroborate as he worked at a store in Philly in those days and special ordered two of these (I think) for customers.

      Oh jeez.

      Well it's in good hands now!

      This will only ever get the best parts and upgrades and will remain very much stock. We want to take a p80 to 500k and this may be the one

      Brought her home.





      Did a quick interior clean up, weather mats in, trunk liner in, fitted a new headlight, did some classic simple mods. New center console armrest installed.

      And then ordered $1500 worth of parts to get this dialed in and mechanically healthy and sound.

      New wiper blades, LED reverse lights, ironmark center caps.



      New, correct p80 style upper torque mount. Also did the lower with the stiff version.



      New (used) 05+ power steering reservoir and hose. That was fun. The old one exploded when I took it out and showered the car with atf. At least we know the fluid was clean since the rack was replaced somewhat recently. All in a days work.

      Next up: tires, t belt, pcv banjo bolt, rear end suspension stuff. Need to find a mystic silver wagon wing for this it just doesn't look right without it.

      More small projects today but I did pickup a full wagon load of parts for this at fcp.



      Took the turbo heat shield off to check on things. No surprises but the wastegate actuator is unloaded so that's why it's slow.



      Did all new Volvo plugs and Bosch coils. It had Volvo plugs in it and they looked pretty good actually. Also cabin, engine air filters and tested the battery (701 CCA capacity out of 730 advertised) since it's 5 years old.

      Next up is brakes all around with an upgrade to 302s and braided stainless lines in the front. Opted for Zimmerman rotors and ate/pagid pads. Then T belt and maybe rear cam seals, coolant flush and heater core, hatch shocks, end links, new serp belt, exhaust hanger fix.

      Thinking this gets e codes but also considering jewels. Thoughts from the peanut gallery?

      I didn't even realize you can get to FCP Euro by driving. Damn it.
      Lots of activity in a short time - you must be excited!

      I'm too lazy to do that. Their cheapest (free) shipping option is overnight to my house. I try to pickup from the stealership though. They're actually cheaper than FCP for a lot.

      Makes sense if it's cheaper and it's an item you're not going to replace again but for parts like suspension and brakes, wipers, plugs, filters, fluids, it only makes sense to use fcp. Even if it's a couple dollars more, cuz you'll never pay again..
      And sikorksy is like 3 min from fcp so I always save an fcp trip for before work.

      Replaced the rear shocks with bilstein touring, rear springs with lesjofors 9140099HD's, fixed the tailgate with the official volvo repair kit because the PPS version sucks, swapped in a Midwest ABS module and recharged the AC! Next up is a heater core/coolant flush part 1, t belt and coolant flush/conversion part 2, some front end suspension stuff, grabbing a hood and putting H9/HIR adapted jewels on this.

      Nothing!

      It's a basic aw42 4 speed fwd. however, the 2000 variant gets individual low gear control. It's the same unit in all glt/se and c70 of this year. Point being it's not the aw55 5 speed.

      Lucky. P&W is close to Gengres but they don't have an online parts store that I know of... I go to FCP for plugs, rotors, high dollar rotables, and oil filters, otherwise the time to go back there and exchange just isn't worth it. My time has some value.

      Did a full brake job and upgrade. Zimmerman rears, ate pads, set the parking brake even. Zimmerman 302s up front with pagid pads and stainless 302mm lines. Also did the passenger lower motor mount. Drained the coolant for a flush and to replace the thermostat, ect sensor and coolant reservoir.



      Got the Nokian ZLine AS tires mounted this evening.

      Headlights are almost ready too. H9 low beams modified to fit and 9005 HIR swapped into the high beams. Just waiting on jewel corners and the new hood to install them.

      T belt scheduled for tomorrow.
