Wanted to introduce myself and to talk briefly of my car - this thread has a lot of pictures but I've done more performance mods and pictures weren't taken then - like clutch upgrades, UR pulley upgrades, sway bars, links, throttle adjustments, cables, etc etc. Injectors will be coming soon, getting 630cc Siemens Deka and another map tune for E85 soon.

My name is Keoni, from Hawai'i, moved to Pennsylvania and currently reside in Georgia though I still have a home in Pittsburgh and in Hawai'i (well, not my house but family's house) and I go between PA and GA often.

Posted this in the General section as I think that it might not be appropriate for R-Forum since its not really tech related, questions or help - so off topic is probably where I should have put this now that I think of it. I'm going to try to put this in chronological order.

First mod after warranty expired - its a sad day yet exciting day really. Warranty always gives a peace of mind but now I can mod at will without worry, so to speak. :)

I've always wanted TPMS in this Volvo, should have came factory in my oppinion:

Wanted a way to monitor my car's basic info:
<a href="http://s173.photobucket.com/albums/w63/keoni212/2004%20S60R/?action=view&current=IMAG0005.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w63/keoni212/2004%20S60R/IMAG0005.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

My car didn't have factory NAV, something I wanted when searching for my car. At the time of purchase, I never knew that I probably wouldn't have been satisfied, so I built my own unit from a salvaged unit I picked up at a junk yard, actually picked up a couple of them, got 3 for 100 total. 2 were broke but all I wanted was motors and housing. Bought some eBay monitors, took them apart and voila. I then picked up an entirely different unit and sold the custom made ones. I also mounted new radio and DiNOC wrapped the units. :)

I finally got a FMIC I wanted, Phuz put it in for me - very happy though the install broke my AC unit down the line as the added pressure of the FMIC install was pushing and bending against the unit causing it to rub against the radiator causing a crack in the side of the AC radiator leaking out my freon. Oh well... Installed my front and rear camera too while I was at it.

My carbon fiber pieces was finally completed... front winglets, front splitter, boost gauge, spark cover, cam cover, fuel rail / tb cover. Installed iPD v2 boost guage - since day 1 the backlight LED works only 50% of the time, oh well...

Tinted taillights with 35% high gloss film, installed CF trim, and did the dual rear fog light MOD.

Started thinking of exhaust, removed my Exhaust Bracket of Death! Took some notes, will tackle a custom setup later.

Redid my front grill, originally painted it black but now I painted it factory color to match! Installed new badge and grill backing as well.

Got pissed at my boost gauge, decided to take it apart and attempt to fix, after my 'fix' there has been no change, still light only works 50% of the time. Noticed my A-Pillars material was in deterioration so I wrapped that in DiNOC too - will redo my A-Pillars, radio surround and pop up dash grill in real carbon fiber very soon - hopefully haha.

Trunk PCC was finally complete, took a long time but well worth it, never complained!

Everything looks good! Quality is sure there, though I'm not sure if I'm a fan of the CF on the tail lights. Do you have any vids of the front camera in use?

Thanks!!

When I didn't have the CF PCC panel, it looked out of place, I agree - after the CF PCC panel installed, it flowed well.
<a href="http://s173.photobucket.com/albums/w63/keoni212/2004%20S60R/?action=view&current=IMG_1869.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i173.photobucket.com/albums/w63/keoni212/2004%20S60R/IMG_1869.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

Normally I wouldn't have so much CF exposed, but with a dark colored car, it worked well too - though later on I two tones a couple of my CF pieces. I don't have any videos of my front camera in motion, but after cracking my first set by running into a parking curb (was parking at a Police/Court house, front parking only...) I got the camera so it won't happen again. I dont have the camera on anymore as I was in Philly and apparently someone wanted more than I did.

i'm going to do my best not to have my car look too much like yours for when we inevitably meet at carlisle, haha.

i don't plan to go with any exterior carbon fiber.

i'm going to do some interior & maybe trunk, but i'm gonna try out a black/dark blue c/f.

Keep us posted - sounds like a good idea. I thought about doing blue carbon fiber inside my car since I have Nordkap interior, it would match in theory.

Have fun modding, its addictive. My Volvo is almost done, working on the Viper now but taking my time as it doesn't need changed much. I might be buying another car soon, not sure what I'll get but I narrowed it down to a few choices.

See you in Carlisle!
