      Theres a rubber or plastic plug on the back side of the transmission that allows access to the torque converter

      Got the T5 engine installed and sounds great. I haven't driven it yet, just idling in garage because there is smoke coming from the turbo to downpipe flange and possibly the exhaust manifold. I used the turbo hard pipes from the 2.4 and i hope i installed them correctly. I'm worried that i may have messed up the cooling pipes and the turbo is overheating. See pictures and let me know your thoughts. I can also draw a diagram of the connections if you think that will help. I might be overly paranoid but i have a ton of time into this swap and didn't want to let it run to hot anymore for fear of turbo damage.

      Turbo lines are correct they're just funky because the coolant port changed sides on the later models so they're both on the back of the housing instead of cross flowing. Oil supply and drain are correct.

      The manifold and turbo will smoke a lot initially you've handled them and they're dirty and just burning off.

      The smoke did burn off and all appears well. Im getting temp tags today so i can do a shake down on the roads this afternoon. I have a question.....I drained the tranny fluid and the car jacked up in the front so i think i drained most of the fluid out. Manual says capacity is 2 gallons on the auto tranny. I replaced 1 gallon and drove it up and down my street then checked the fluid and it was dead on according to the dipstick. Is there a gallon of fluid that stays in the torque converter. I dont want to add a second gallon and over fill and destroy.

      The swap is complete !!! All went fairly well. No check engine lights just a faulty coolant level sensor that i replaced with JY part. The power is great but the 2.4 does have better torque. This engine is better mated to a manual tranny but it pulls very well and wants to get me a speeding ticket.
      Things that were not plug and play and had to be swapped...
      -Main coolant pipe on back of block
      -AC compresser, hoses had different set up and connection to compressor
      -Plastic valve set up that screws into right side of intake and runs to brake booster and other item
      -Fuel supply line on block, connector not compatible with supply line under car. Had to run a new line
      -Turbo heat shield had to be modified for turbo hard pipes and the bolts ups are different from 2.4 and 2.3 exhaust manifolds
      I used the existing intercooler piping and it dosen't have the traditional T5 look but i ok with that
      Things left to do....
      -Touch up paint chips
      -Leather repair and redye, The leather is in great shape but im a perfectionist and want it to look as new as possible (I will take before and after pic's)
      -I will hold off on the tune for now, the car is plenty fast and at 49yrs old, im not hanging out at the drag strips (yet)
      Huge thanks !!! to everyone who chimed in with help and suggestions and probably laughed at my paranoia questions of residual oil and dirt burning off the turbo and manifold. I got a nice set of 7.5 comets from a fellow SS member. They wont be installed till spring, gotta stay with the 16"s as we get a lot of snow on the east bench of the mountains.
      Here's my wheeler dealers summary...

      Car: $280.00
      T5 engine with 53K: $750.00
      Refresh parts and fluids: $1100.00
      Comets:$400.00
      Tax and registration:$160.00
      Total:$2690.00
      Man hrs: who knows, plenty but it was a labor of love and a great learning experience.
      To the general public the car is probably worth $2200. bucks but i have no intentions of selling it

      Super Impressed. This is what everybody should do rather than treating cars so badly and like they’re mere point to point. I’ve always aspired to have the time and money to attempt saving a car off a cheap sale. 280 bucks! The fun story is to tell people you paid more for the wheels (they look great, btw) than the car. Only thing left to do is to make it manual! You’ve already come all this way...

      Nice work and congrats on reaping the rewards of your efforts! I'm thinking proper tuning will bring out the hidden assets of that T5 engine. . .when you're ready.

      Worked on the leather today. Bought at kit from LeatherMagic. 3 coats if filler to fill the cracks and 3 coats of dye. It was actually pretty simple if you follow instructions and are somewhat patient. Got both front seats done in 3 hrs with a little help of a hair dryer to quicken the dry time. The aerosol can they provided was a joke to spray the dye. Ended up using my HPLV spray gun on the lowest setting. Some before and after picks

      After waiting for the winter to clear here in Utah, i received my Nokia AS's and mounted them on the comets. Hyper silver wheels and moon dust colored car are an absolute FAIL !! I was so disappointed, it looks even worse in person.

      So its the 17yr olds lucky day. He gets the comets as loaners till i can find a darker colored P80 to fit my wheels. Kidding, but this might be the catalyst to find a V70.

      I dont think its that bad. Needs more body lines to break it up. Like tinted windows and a spoiler.

      Small lip, not spoiler. Tinted medium for sure, and you need to find a second set of comets. They look fantastic to me on that car!

      OEM nice, and period correct, but still too big for me on a sedan. Also a PITA to clean under them.

      You're in town?!? Do you like Sandstone? Crappy photos and ALL CAPS WORDS, but if the description is correct, then this could be a worthy save.

      Yeah, Im in Lake Villa (Gurnee Mills area). Will be here another 2 weeks and possibly till the end of the month. Thanks for the leads. Im looking for a P80 V. Don't really want a XC. Would love a T5 or VR specifically. Im curious about the black VR in Des Moine with the tranny or drive line issue. My cousin in Arlington Heights has a trailer and i could work on something in his garage if needed. But would only have time for minor repairs as i need to focus most my time on packing up moms house.

      Yeah, I didn’t link to it, because I didn’t think it was viable as a buy and drive. But if you have access to a trailer that changes things. If I see something else promising, I’ll PM you.

      So im still trying to find someone to tune my car to get rid of the CEL and have the full power of the T5 engine. Ken at IPD got back to me with a response.

      Anytime that you have a code for fuel trim the car will probably go into a limp mode and limit boost. It is smart enough to know that poor fuel mixture under boost is a good way to melt pistons.

      Do you have a gauge installed so you can see what boost the car is making? Which injectors did you install? Your 26mpg reading is not likely to be correct in this situation.


      Keep in mind that the fuel trim code is probably not caused by the obvious factor. It is likely caused by the fact you are running 2.3 liters in a car that was scaled for 2.4 liters. This means your car will need less fuel at lower loads and the ECU is pulling back injector duty cycle to reach a leaner mixture. When you go high throttle the car will stop reading the oxygen sensors and will run predetermined fuel delivery.


      The 1999 and 2000 models have a much lower ability to process data than the later cars and may not be able to compensate for these variations. I do not have any options for tuning that thing right now. But maybe we can get around most of the issues with a little creativity.


      I replied asking if he would be willing to try a little creativity and take on the challenge.

      Ken got back to me again and said it all makes sense for the fuel trim code because im running blue injectors instead of the browns. He suggested i swap back to the brown ones and see if the CEL does not return. That would help me when i need to pass emissions but wont allow me to take advantage of the T5 assets. Ugghh

      I got my ECU tuned from SteveO here's his email of what he did

      "The ecu has been tuned for blue injectors, displacement, 16T and torque tables/ignition modified, boost is currently set to peak at 15-16 PSI, I wanted to double check your altitude, I request "Load" from the ECU, if you are 4500-5000 Ft like google says I've made an adjustment as a 15 psi tune at sea level would be 20+ at your level".

      The car has more torque and the auto trans shift points seem higher. The turbo spools up intermittently and when it does, it dosent throw me back in the seat. I bought a boost gauge and im maxing out at 5 PSI. I installed a new Pierburg TCV before reinstalling the ECU. I adjusted the wastegate to be in fully closed position and that didnt make a difference. This Turbo came from a 01 S60 T5 and it dosent have the thimble adjustment that i thought all P2's have. All lines to the turbo are new silicone. Did a smoke test a month ago and didnt detect any leaks. As for the gauge, i tapped into the hose going to the nipple on the drivers side of the intake manifold. I saw most P80 people tap into the hose to the turbo compressor. But this engine is from a P2 car and saw videos of people tapping into the hose on the intake. ETM passes the sweep test in VIDA.

      Anything you guys think i should focus on. Maybe my wastegate is shot because it dosent have much resistance when i manually push the rod.

      SB, what are you boosting on your T5 in the XC ?

      I just re-read my post and hope this wasn't misinterpreted as a knock on SteveO. He was gracious enough to tune my ECU without having the car in his possession. My original issue was related to fuel trim error because of the bigger turbo and injectors. His tune has solved that because i do not have a CEL anymore and i am very happy !! Just wanting your guys advice on what i may have missed in my diagnostics relating to low boost. As they say "2 heads are better than 1" Im hoping here in our community that a hundred heads are better than one at diagnosing a problem.

      I bought a cheapo hand held vac pump and disconnected the hoses for the wastegate and CBV from the TCV. Both diaphrams held 5 inch of vac. So i assume both parts are functioning correctly. Will VIDA throw any codes or warnings for underboost or just overboost ?

      Folks, im going crazy trying to diagnose this low boost and now erratic idle.
      Only codes in Vida are
      ECM-904C emissions adjustment
      ECM-6806 turbo boost flow to high
      The ETM did pass the sweep test but maybe it dosen't act up during the test
      at idle my boost pressure is at 860HPA
      MAF at idle is averaging 22
      Fuel tank pressure is 63
      I just installed a new pierburg TCV before i installed the newly tuned ECU. I ran a duty cycle test during idle and rev'd it up a couple times. It stayed flat at 0 on the graph. Shouldn't there be some spike when i rev ? (maybe not if enough pressure hasn't built up ?) Wondering if i got a bad TCV out of the box. Still boosting to 5 PSI max. I adjusted the wastegate a few times and someone asked if the lever that controls the valve in the turbo had any preload tension on it when the rod is removed. It dosent and he replied "thats not good". Is it supposed to have preload tension. Please, i beg for your suggestions. I'm pulling what little hair i have left out.

      I tend to over think things and here's a classic example. After months of trying to diagnose my low boost issue after StevO tune, i finally figured out what was wrong. I was at the JY last week and met a fellow enthusiast. He agreed to come over and help with troubleshooting. After an hour of discussion and checking things, i remembered and told him i had a hairline crack in my intercooler but had expoxy'd a repair. He put his hand over the repair and told me to rev it. Sure enough the repair failed and cracked even more leaking boost. Installed a new intercooler and BAM !!! Now boosting to 15psi as per the tune. I can really hear the turbo now and she screams. Even had traction control come on a few times. This boost leak must have contributed to my other errors and VIDA and fuel cut out or limp mode under heavy load. I've checked VIDA 3 times and i get all greens on fault trace !!
      Soooo Happy to finally have this T5 swap running as it should and finally worth all the effort. And the enthusiast said there are bunch of other enthusiasts that meet the 2nd week of every month. Going to meet up with them this Wednesday. Fuel pressure is a little high at 80PSI that i still need to sort out. But its been a great couple of weeks.

      Well, the major nerve pain of shingles is over, whew ! That was miserable. But supposedly i can still be contagious till the rash scabs over. Therefore i'm stuck at home for the rest of this week. Figured i'd make good use of my down time and get started on refinishing the propus wheels. I was going to separate the lip from the wheel but read BBS does not recommend this. I really wanted to replace the bolts, some of them are pretty ratty. What's your guys thoughts on separation ? Guess i could keep them intact and just replace the bolts after refinishing.

      Don’t touch the bolts. They’re torque to yield titanium fasteners and at about $5 a piece......you get the point

      I'm still working on refinishing the Propus. Anyone got a good trick for getting rid of the tire compound residue ? I could hit it with a wire wheel and drill, but was concerned i might score the aluminum too much and the bead would leak ?

      Brass wire brush or a scrubbie

      See my thread. My two cents. I refinished my propus by getting the lip rash cleaned up at a local shop, got 4 of my 6 wheels straightened at the same shop, hand sanded for several days, two coats of prime, four coats of paint, and two coats of clear. Used spray can wheel silver from local chain auto parts store on the faces only. Masked the rear. I got better results shooting them off the ground with faces straight up. You need a strong adhesive remover like Goof Off, mineral spirits, and paint thinner to remove the old rubber and the sticky areas from old wheel weights. And yes brass brushes and sponges as Will mentioned. Be careful. Use ventilation. Use a mask. Only one of my four wheels mounted with new rubber needs weight; the others balance out without any so worth getting them straightened at about $20-40 a piece. I think I paid $140 at that machine shop to include carefully grinding the lips true on a lathe.

      That seems like a really good deal. Did they fill the lip rash with something or just turn them down? What speed are your wheels balanced to? Or I guess just checked to they didn't need weight.
