  2. Coincidence? A/C compressor not engaging since GROM audio install

    I recently installed a GROM audio unit in place of our CD changer on the 04 XC90, premium audio. Works great and I had done the same upgrade on our 05 previously with no issues but, after this one,...

    I'm late to the one but I agree with ATL's post above and wanted to post some numbers here for future reference. (AutoZone) Duralast AGM group H8 (the BIG one). fits like a glove. maybe it was a...

    I do have them. Send me a PM and I'll get you my email/phone# (sent you PM with my email.) thanks.

    Sorry, thought I had it in there. The car I got them from had no display but was told it was around 70,000 and, while I only sold cars for a few years in my twenties so I'm not a true expert, I have...
  6. FS: S60awd rear shocks / springs (lowering XC70)

    I have a nice set of S60awd rear shocks/spring assemblies with the upper mounts. They've got about 70k miles on them. I was going to lower my 01 V70XC but decided against it when I found out we...

    You didn't really ask it that way. It seemed more like a cynical "you must all be going 55.". In fact, we're not.

    Hard to not throw variables out there for you when there are so many. It's not...

    Like you said, speed kills. Previously, I was averaging 20 (now 21.5) around town for my daily commute which is slightly mixed 10 miles while it's still a little cold. In my car, the in car display...

    Any "how to"s on this? I did this with a VW key before and the rfid was a little glass capsule that i had to cut out of the key. Same deal with the volvo? And any cutting of the fob circuit board...

    Thanks, Astro. That's helpful info.

    It makes me wonder, then, if lowering the front even 1.5" is going to change the geometry to the point where I'd want to use the FWD/AWD parts (apparently the...

    Also, do I stick with XC lower control arms or V70 or are they the same? Thanks!
  13. Does anyone have pics / experience with stock V70 front struts and springs on XC?

    Hi All,

    I've got some low mileage S60awd springs/shocks for the rear and I was thinking about just using stock V70 shocks/springs up front. However the IPD sites compares the xc strut to the fwd...

    It is a good idea for ease of switching wheels and things like that. I hadn't considered that angle.
  15. Nice...motivated me to change mine. Thanks!

    Maybe I saw that on the Snabb site. I'm sure Lucky will chime in.

    The reasoning would be that boost on the green is bumped to 14psi and a stock 01 LPT (13g? 14t?) may struggle that level. Just...

    On the ARD website, the green tune specifies an upgraded turbo for the LPT. There's a distinct power increase with the Orange tune. I'd think if you're not planning on changing out hard-parts like...

    Electrical tape over the light? :)

    If your tires are properly holding pressure, why would a pressurized tube behave any differently? Is it not a sensor issue?

    I'll speak only to the octane...I'm still using 89 octane with no issues.

    Thanks for accurately explaining all of those things, Lucky, which explains why I'm seeing about 2mpg on my normal commute (which is really about 50/50 mix) but drastically higher on mostly highway...

    I might have missed the point and lost a few people along the way with the highway mpg thing. Let's back up a little and consider the old internet adage "YMMV". Let me also restate that I'm not...

    Put aside the mpg talk - the power delivery is smoother, idle is smoother (that stupid little plastic document clip used to rattle at idle...no more) Transition off idle is smoother, car accelerates...

    I knew that was coming but my XC previously got 30.5 on long pure highway trips (we're talking flat PA turnpike with no traffic) and now gets 35+. Your choice to believe that or not but it's my...
  24. My experience with ARD and the 'orange' ECU flash - GREAT results!

    I just wanted to share this with this community because I figure it might help a few folks enjoy their cars just a little bit more.

    I recently upgraded my 01 XC with an ARD tune. You can see my...

    ARD tune! Yay! Best money I've spent on this thing, by far. [thumbup]. Awesome people, too, but everyone knows that.
