    K.G`s new project V70R

    Here it is an auto little train.It feels heavier than an S70 model but estate is what I was after anyway.Needs tax,mot and some mechanical work.Only 1 pic for now.Silver wheels don`t look nice so I`ll be painting them in near black or send them to MPR lol.The car has never been modified apart from a cat back exhaust and a boost gauge.Right now I`m over the moon with the purchase a massive thanx to PHIL V70R and frankie.

    Keep it standard, Or add another oil cooler in to protect the Gearbox before modding

    Thanx mate.
    1. make sure she`s reliable on the road and service
    2.start from light mods first like rip kit,possibly decat.
    3.get the alloys resprayed to make her look nicer.
    I wanna get about 280bhp tops for now and looking for an LPG or HHO.She`s not going to b a track car but as it goes and might have a manual convertion for now with my back auto is a Godsend.

    I`ll have to wait for map a bit,have to save up.Lets see whats the power on a dyno when we meet up with light mods 1st.Rip kit,induction kit,poss 255 wallbro.
    PHIL its too hard to resist not modding.I won`t be abusing it but good to have the power when u need it.

    Ill be honest mate im confused with the Rica's. Im not sure which is for what. Im sure you used to be able to get 330's too but im hoping somebody will be able to tell me what the crack is.

    304 runs a slightly higher boost level & has to be ran on hi-octane to get the full potential out of in. 280 can be ran on anything

    believe there was a difference between manual & auto to save the torque converter, but sure they did the 304 for both
