Well, since no one has started a new topic on the cover story, I decided why not? <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"> Kai, your car is looking very sweet!<P>Okay guys, is this mysterious fog for real or is it a secret? <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/tongue.gif"> <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/tongue.gif"> <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/tongue.gif"><P> <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/resources/gallery/cars/00_c70/kai_c70/large/10.jpg"> <P>-Drew<p>[This message has been edited by InDy (edited 02-19-2002).]

Hey Drew, from the article I linked Kai's message called The List in the C70 forum. You'll find discussion on the car there. <P>As for the fog, it's steam. Where we shot the car, there were some leaking steam pipes, one underneath that grating, and another on a pipe just behind the hood of the car. It made for some interesting photos. <P>I'm very happy with how well the shoot came out.

I think Kai has spent so much time and effort on his car that he has neglected his home. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><BR>Time for a coat of paint ;<P>Just kidding lol<P>

The shoot was actually done at an abondoned facility that was once an army base, a monestary, an Inn for Washington elite and an all girls school. <P>If you look at the shots more straight on of the car, down the road, you'll see the building I shot the C70 Convertible for our road test there. It's very picturesque and pretty cool for those who are curious about such things.<P>It's actually right off the DC beltway and about a half mile from Rob's (Volvo Rules) garage.

George,<P>The pictures did come out great. Good job on those BTW. The steam coming out of those grates is a big plus, makes good picture taking.<P>-Drew

Superb work done there Kai!<BR>Very nice.<BR>I only wonder how you want to get the 340HP's to the street.<BR>Did you replace the intercooler also?<BR>A rally driver in our area ordered a custom fit intercooler for their 850 which should fit the C70 also.

That place really gave me the creeps. Man...especially when we were walking through the whole complex. Did I have a field day or what?!!! It was like exploring a haunted house or something. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/frown.gif">

Hopefully, with enough lag, the car is not all that unstreetable. Torque steer is there..even at some higher speed, but not something you can't manage.<P>Intercooler upgrade will be the last...maybe I'll get that taken care of during the summer when I start to feel the heat. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><BR>

Nice ride Kai. I've seen pics before, but I never knew the whole story. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/cool.gif"> <P>Question - did you ever consider increasing the displacement while you worked over the motor? I know that increasing the bore of the 5-cyl is not a good idea, and stroking it would only lead to higher stresses under boost, but I was wondering if you ever looked into this in more detail?<BR><P>

The wall might be too thin for any higher stress application, of course, unless you resleeve the cylinders. I just didn't think there was much of anything for me to play with for the bottom end of the engine. I'm pretty sure I can get more than enough power from the other upgrades alone.
