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