    Thanks I've seen the aftermarket ones do that, but not an OEM part. When I get around to stripping it down, I'll check it :)

    The standard rad gave up very early on, like 10 years ago water pump was ok when fitted, doesn't mean its still ok I run an alloy rad now.

    The ostrich will fit into the 4.4 no problem. Ditch that 4.3 and TT and run the modified 608 map from Volvospeed then you can datalog superfast

    Mr Oblark,

    First things first, I'm going to call you a stallion ! The work you did with the Clio Brembo install - well done bud!

    I want to pick your brains a little and use his setup for my V70R! May I if possible have a diagram of the bracket you made to house them ?? And I assume you still have those bad boys installed ??

    My email - lavinder.bhogal@hotmail.co.uk looking forward to your reply Sir
