    Is this the one on ebay from Southport suffering with a splutter? Did you get it sorted?

    It is from southport & it does have a sputter under hard acceleration. I work funny shifts & the tax has ran out so until Wednesday I can't play. 1st job is a boost gauge to see if she's been played with. It could be an over boost with the way it behaves. It will also be having a diagnostic to see if anything has stored. I had a bargain with 11months mot. She does need tlc with silly little things but overall I think I got what I wanted. It's also not AWD anymore which didn't really bother me either. The service history is pretty detailed since new. It really has had £000's spent on it.
    I'm getting used to the gay comments now boys, I'm afraid it's gay pride here in Wrexham as I'm the only gay in the village. Getting a Volvo that would blend in certainly went out the window!

    Lol I guessed two of you did by your profiles. That's part of the stage 0 I plan to do the next few weeks. I have a list of parts & a nagging mrs to motivate me. I'm hoping to paint the wheels a lighter grey as they are nearly black. Is the egg crate grill standard? Cheers for the advice, any help is a blessing really.

    No,eggcrate grill is from an xc70 or c70,cost a few quid too.I had black wheels before and really liked them.Once u on the road again let us know what symptoms yr car has and we all`ll try to help u.

    Well basically it splutters when it has full throttle, any other time it's great but the engine warning light only comes on when the car is moving & doesn't stay on, like I said until weds I can't get it plugged in. Cheers guys, hoping it can be sorted pretty easy with a maf or sensor. Boost gauge 1st so we can see what it's popping.

    Cheers guys, I've noticed the photos of the trip to the evo triangle, my mates & I often go up there in our toys. I should be able to keep up with them soon I hope. Claymore where is the local meet? I may be able to come if the car is ready & its not to far, I'm on the dreaded nightshift that night you see.
    Just a quick question, I'm eyeing up a set of sfs silicone hoses (half tempted to buy orange lol) & they only list for a t5. As mine is a V70r will the kit fit ie the turbo externally is the same?
    I'm studying everyone's build threads & gallery's at the moment looking for ideas. Lol

    The silicone hoses should be just fine for yours, Not sure where the meet is yet, it's usually in Shrewsbury, but we may be going a bit further into the midlands for a change.

    Too late!! Lol. Ordered them this morning from Sfs. I didn't fancy black or a themed colour. What bin lid induction kit is that?! It's hoooge. Lol I've ordered a panal filter this morning too along with a load of stage 0 parts off the list. I need a supplier for the pcv & breather pipe kit now really, can anyone recomend anyone?
    Also I'm after some poly bushes for the anti roll bars, although power flex don't seem to stock them for the awd.
    Been very busy in work this morning, the apprentice is knackered already. Lol
