Hey guys,

So I'm going to do my dp in the next 6-8 weeks. I'm going with the CNT pipe from ebay. It says it comes with all bolts and gaskets, but I'm wondering if there aren't a few parts that I should order just in case the ones I have now are rusted or shear off in the removal process. What problem parts have you guys run into when doing the dp??

Also looking to get some spacers from motorsport-tech: http://www.motorsport-tech.com/4DCGI/switchmodel
I know the 5x108mm bolt pattern is correct. Is 63.3mm the correct width for the hub/wheel centric spacers on the R?? [The site lists these spacers under V50/V70]

Also on spacers: I'm not planning on lowering my car anytime soon just because of the area I live in [lots of potholes, and my driveway has a big bump at the end of it that I'm afraid I'd scrape on every time if I did]. Would 20mm spacers big too big for the back? I'm planning on a 12mm front and 20mm back setup, but if that's too much I'd go 15mm back. Again, I'm not lowered and don't plan on it in the foreseeable future I know these rub on lowered cars already and would require fender rolling :D

Thanks guys!

Usually stuck nuts on your '04. Hit them early and often with penetrating spray...

65.1mm For p2 I thought.

Get longer bolts with spacers.

Just get the spacers from ViVa, they come with the extended bolts, and if anything goes wrong George is immediately on it to fix the problem. 20mm is a bit wide, I'd go 17 personally, but since you're not lowered 20 is legit.

Those spacers come with extended bolts, or so the website says. "Design 1 is a flat spacer that is hub centric to the vehicle only.Designs 2, 3 & 4 are hub AND wheel centric. These spacers have a registering lip for the wheel to be centered correctly. This will prevent any vibrations while driving. Design 2 comes with extended lug bolts or studs, depending on the application." The spacers I linked above are design 2, and so should come with extended lug bolts. Not to bash Viva in any way as I love the products I've ordered from them, and George has been awesome with all my questions, but I save about $100 going through motorsport tech compared to the Viva spacers.

Also, the same 63.3mm is used for the c30, c70, v50, v70, and s80 options for their spacers. Maybe I should just email them to confirm all the info is correct :D

Should I invest in a breaker bar for the bolts? Mine's 2 years older [or more] and I'm sure those bolts are nice and stuck.

Anyone have a favorite penetrating spray?

On a separate note, how hard is the stainless steel brake line swap? Don't you basically bleed the system, install the lines, and refill? Figured this might be a good one while I'll have the car on a lift...

I've got a pending installation of a DP and yesterday I prepared myself with removing the turbo heatshield and gave the dp-nuts a spray with rustpenetration. All three nuts came loose very easy!

The O2-sensor was stucked pretty hard and I think its easier to loose it when the pipe is off the car with a 22mm open wrench...

The bolts and nuts connecting dp and catback is so rusty I cant even see its a nut anymore :) That one has to be cut away, that could be something you should lookup, so you are able to prepare for it before you get your ass under the car for the installation. You will need 2x M8 x 30mm and nuts to replace it.

The lines are real easy on the R...takes no time...just undo the hardline side then the caliper side..

Do yourself a favor though....get a motive brake bleeder or one just like it...pump it up once and just go around cracking the bleeders one at a time.
Need to make sure it comes with the cap for euro cars or whatever it is

I was looking at these brake lines, but they're all about $125 shipped, so i'm not brand picky as long as they come with the right stuff. Thanks for the cap info. I think these come with them since they include steel "fittings." The only reason I looked at these in particular is cause they come in blue :D

Let me know if these won't work please!

[Also kind of funny that they list these for a 2008 S60R/V70R

I wouldn't buy brake lines from an ebay seller, due to knock offs, and if the seller is putting the wrong year numbers; he or she must not care enough to deal when pissed off customers complain it doesn't fit their 08 s60. A simple google search will show any clueless person that there are no 08 R's. If he or she is not paying attention to that, what else is he/she not doing? If brake lines fail, you're generally going to find out when you need them (never a good situation). I have goodridge's on my miata and I haven't had any problems with them for over 2 years. But I plan on switching to stainless lines that are coated in a sheath. Apache just ordered some goodridges off tire rack for less than this guy is selling them for. Just be careful, and if something doesn't look right, don't use them. This isn't all that uncommon apparently: http://www.iwsti.com/forums/gr-braking/153439-stainless-steel-brake-lines-dangerous.html

Will have to find some Kroil, it sounds like. Advancedautoparts/autozone kind of product, or is this a internet order type thing?
I haven't found at my local vatozone. So I ordered it online. If you're in a bind use the ATF and acetone mixture (it's extremely flammable though, so be careful).

Excellent info, grapist. Thanks a bunch. I'll take a look at tirerack, and I also figure for $5 more, TKI probably wouldn't mind my business, and they make Volvo stuff and should know better than ebay sellers :D http://www.tkimotorsport.com/p2-goodridge

After a second look at the ebay ones, it says 2005-2008 S60R, which is still kind of lollers, but could be a simple keyshift mistake. Technafit seems to be a proper DOT certified brake line manufacturer [assuming this seller is legit], and their steel braids are covered in a pvc sheath. Will also see if Stoptech has S60r lines for us, as I would trust their lines as much as I do their rotors and pads.

Since I'll need some new DOT4 brake fluid, anyone have a favorite of theirs? I hear good things about Motul. Who has the best price on the good stuff??

Just ordered the downpipe this morning! Can't wait to get that on along with my snabb intake pipe. Yum!

Too bad you can't get sweet Takspeed blue ones like mine..

If I didn't have the takspeed lines I would 100% go with ones from like IPD or VIVA (if they have them), or Evolve. Its good to get good quality ones, just incase you need customer service and such.

that's the wrong hub size there Tex

Motul RBF 600 is good..$20 a bottle, you'll need 2 to do a flush, I would buy three to be safe, that's what I do. I usually put the left over in my ZX6 or motocross bike. It is easy to find at motosport shops.

And its good for the track!

So do the post-P2 volvos and the P1 volvos use the 63.3mm hubs then? I really wish they put years on their site for clarification.

I guess I'll be going with 10/15mm's front/back from Viva, since I know they'll be the correct size.

Update! motorsport tech will do custom spacers, and when I plugged in 04 S60R, 65.1mm came up as the correct size. Now I can get 12mm and 17mm backs! These are wheel and hub centric. Checking prices now.

question:what is the wheel diameter on our cars? Is it 65.1 like the hubs? Mst needs it for the spacer dimensions.
