For those of you who saw my last post, the driveshaft and misfire have been repaired and now the car is running great.

Titanium / Nordkap
188K miles
Lots of recent maintenance
Tires less than 3k miles
IPD intercooler and throttle body pipe
Runs great, lots of power

There's some more detail on this thread here:

Bob's Volvo in Denver repaired the misfire and the driveshaft rattle and it's running absolutely great. They also did a pre-purchase inspection I'm happy to share with serious buyers. With the fixes done my new asking price is $6500; if I can't find a buyer here or on Craigslist in the next week or so I'll post it on eBay with no reserve.

I took a few quick pics, PM or e-mail if interested.

Thanks,
Jason

No, it turns out the problem was a bad spark plug that caused a misfire at higher RPM. The misfire caused the loose driveshaft to rattle, making me think there was something going on with the turbo.

The replacement plugs and rebuilt driveshaft are both installed and the car is now running beautifully. I also paid the shop to do a comprehensive PPI, PM if interested with your e-mail address and I'll send you a copy.
