One thing I learned from my import tuner days; anything can be force inducted - how much do you want spend, how much boost do you want, and how many engine components do you want to leave strewn on the road. :)

lol Sadly, many of the big things require subframe removal. There's not a lot of space under that engine and trans.

The transmission wouldn't handle any more power. The TF80-SC is already at its limits with the V8's output.

You would think that, except his S60R has the very same transmission and is making a colossal sh!t-t0n more power. It's ability to continue to exist is a mystery. lol

The S60R isn't hauling around the weight of the '90, so that could be a big factor.

Yeah, I imagine the extra 1000 lbs contributes. But he's also making stupid power. If it were a "power limitation", which I absolutely agree it SHOULD be based on AW's ratings, his transmission should have lit on fire and exploded quite a while ago. lol

true, although i weighed myself in my s60r and it was 4200 pounds...but then again we dont know how my s60r clutches look with 600 torque on them....my 850 with 450 torque sure were down to metal last weekend when i took the trans apart...lol

no leaks, valve cover gaskets were replaced and so were the coils and plugs and pcv was done as well...i see alternator was replaced...the valve body seems to be original and it shift flawlessly...

i got the orca down to 2 codes.

BCM-C00201C - ABS pump motor control
CEM--9C03 - Antenna/light ring signal missing

volvo claims trans fluid is for life...no need to change it...lol...i must say valve body cover was resealed so valve body was most likely replaced...but judging by the trans fluid and looks like nobody touched the torx bolts whatsoever..could it be that they changed the valve body but not the fluid? lmao i would not doubt it.

nice and chocolaty...reset everything in vida aaand it shifts flawlessly as it did with the chocolate fluid. :D

Don't have VIDA in front of me but seem to recall the CEM-9C03 code when I bought my '08, was the little bulb on the antenna ring.

Bought two when I did the replacement, kept a spare for the '05 when it inevitably goes.

Nothing you probably don't know already but may be of benefit to others.

Wait so you RESET the FLUID COUNTER and the ADAPTATION ??? Hold on, what happened after that? I have been told many times even VIDA tells you not to do Adaptaion unless parts inside were changed...

After the first drain and fill my trans started to flare 2-3 shifts when its warmed up under 25-50% throttle... below and above it was fine...
2nd flush, not much change...
3rd flush was full change of fluid through the cooling pipe with 12Qts and after that it still did it for a while it took a good 1-2 months before it fully went away.

I was going to reset adaptation but decided not to and lucky it adapted somehow to the slow shifts. Lucky save on my end I guess. im at 149k.
