Does anybody have an OEM strut brace for their C/S/V 70? Or, does anybody know the Volvo part number if one does exist? I've seen the OEM braces mention on other forums, but have never seen one my self. I was looking for the OBX brace, but apparently they are not manufactured any longer. I've also seen the one sold by EST and the one from IPD. IPD's brace looks a little flimsy...

Thanks! Best detailed engine compartment I have seen to date. Is the intake manifold powder coated? Looks great.

I have one too, it's 9204176. I paid $196 for it in 2008. I entered the number at Tasca Volvo and it says it is still available at $244.31. Here's a pic of mine mid-trans swap, in the stock color.

Yup, but now I need to find another powder coater.
My guy went out of business cause the owner of the building he was leasing wasn't paying the taxes :(

Stiffens it up, keeps the strut towers from flexing in or out as much during cornering.
