Re: need turbo diagram (kansanbrick)

does anyone have a diagram or a 850 engine bay or turbo system goin from the turbo to the intercooler i need a picture so i can get some ideas for a fmic

I can probably help you when I finish my FMIC in 3-4 weeks


I could probably scan a crummy sketch of how I have it worked out but you'd be better off waiting for pictures. Look for my thread on here titled "things going on of late". Theres the FMIC in there eventually

Re: (kansanbrick)

Originally it wasn't this way on 850's. Got changed for a number of reasons. I can think of 2:
1. Turbo hose coming over the engine causing considerable heat soak.
2. Freezing intercooler pipes in the older models in very cold climates.

Some over on volvospeed are running a reverse IC or RIP kit that puts things back to the way they used to be, but personally when I read about them, I really don't see the advantage.

I am constantly having to take the lower 90degree hose off and clean the oil out...it drips, though slightly...anyone else have this issue?

Re: (MadeInJapan)

MIJ,

I have an oil build up at the base of that pipe/connector also.. but then again I need to replace my pcv system anyway. Ill let you know. I am going to experiment with some ideas on how to keep that oil away from that pipe and TB. I am going to try an Offy Offenhauser and see if that will curb even the need to change or clean the PCV system. ( with out enticing a CEL)

Replaced my pcv system totally in Dec. Still get that oily lower pipe. Have read of a drilled hole with a nipple at the base of the intercooler to alleviate this but haven't found it on mine.

is it very difficult to remove the stock intercooler

it took a few hours.. only because i didn't know how, and my friend never worked on a turbo car, only n/a. but, just remove a few bolts, air dam, fan shroud, disconnect some wire harnesses, disconnect radiator lines (u may wanna drain ur coolant first and also plug the oil lines), and the ic/radiator piece should come up... i think the ac piece was supposed to stay there on the car, u may have to use a hanger wire to hold it in place temporarily.
