Nice ride Johann <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><BR>I love the clean BOV setup.<BR>By the way, how much did the 850 intercooler pipe set you back?<BR>Thanks,<BR> Brian<p>[This message has been edited by volvos70turbo (edited 08-04-2002).]

The combination brings a lot of torque over a very wide band but below 2500 rpm with the 16T turbo there's not much to gain.<BR>If you follow the "exhaust" link and click on the DP/Exhaust pictures you can see a highres image.<P>

Hey Johann,<BR>Nice site, glad you finally got more update on the car. <BR>I wish I could have some time to do something up for my C70, too. Almost done now....just need to get the FPR thingy resolved, and if that works out and no glitches......But in the meantime, I'll just enjoy the IC upgrade and the car as a whole.Do some more write up about the car soon..we are running outta interesting Volvo enthusiasts' web site nowadays. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><BR>

However, it looks like the fuel rail from the 70 series and the 97 850 is still the same...unless I seriously ordered the wrong one, long story. But yes, I'd have to put a fuel return line in the system to make my Aeromotive FPR work. And hopefully that will solve the problem with car running lean at high RPMs. We'll also check if the fuel pressure is indeed dropping. <BR>It's funny how you ask most of the volvo ECU tuners, they'd simply tell you that everything is controlled by your ECU and if you are running lean, it's always software issue..never caused by small injectors and other misc hardware. Only if it was that easy...<BR>

Johann,<BR>Nice site, I am waiting patiently for my bov to be installed. Instead of using the stock pipe, I have my guy to make a stainless steel replica of it, so I can weld the HKS SSQV valve on it, should look pretty good. I will have some pics of it when it is done.

Well Johann,<BR>You're a bad man.<BR>And you have created a bad car.<BR>Nice job!<P>Did you have to boost fuel psi? If so, how and to how many psi?<BR>It really looks great. Those big wheels could use some big brakes...<BR>What's next on your list?

Johann,<BR>Maybe you miss my post in the S60 on Ebay thread, anyway, I want to know what kind of problem you experiencing with your Blitz? Slight bog down between shifts? Maybe because of the rich A/F ratio right at the shifts, hope I am "right on the money" regarding to your blow off valve problem. <P>Anyway, I came across some of the threads that some people, like me, want to have that nice wooosh sound when you shift, the loudest audiable valve on the market today would be the TurboXS Type-H RFL valve. With that, I am sure you can hear the sound in our pretty quiet Volvos. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif">

I see, but it doesn't trigger the check engine light right? Hope not. I didn't know the MAF on our cars is that sensitive, smart Volvos shall we say? <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"> On a side note, installing my HKS SSQV valve on my V tomorrow, going to weld it on a custom stainless steel pipe going from the turbo to the intercooler (the pipe abopve the engine.). Will let you know tomorrow night or Saturday morning on how it goes.<p>[This message has been edited by NJ850N/A (edited 08-08-2002).]
