    What Ricardo said on the plugs Sounded like that was what he puts into all cars and especially if going to get hard use or more boost. Don't have the exact plug number (think Bosch), maybe the RS Ford forums will know or just call Tim.

    Seems to answer phone quick enough (once you have his number!!). If you need tel no, just PM.

    I don't know what brand Ford uses in their cars, but you can get info on the Denso plugs for our cars.
    You can find them cheaper in the UK

    I have noticed over the last few month when I drive the Volvo into work the DSTC (I think that is what the button is labelled) cut in on this long sweeper where the M25 joins the M3 (going clockwise). Only doing about 70-80 when this happens and no where near the limits of the tyres (run round here in wifes old Puma most days at 85 or more no problem (kph obviously!). Is there something wrong here (this is the only place it has shown up). Why is it even there, was not on T5 (that had TC but only cut in at lower speeds in 1st or second?

    When you press this button to turn this off it comes up on the dash as DSTC reduced (not off as it did when you pressed the TC button in the T5). I'd like to just turn this pointless thing off completely, can I do this in Vida?

    It has AWD so that is covering you down low where the T5 TC was sometimes coming in and worked well. At higher speed T5 did not have this rubbish and I don't want it on the R.

    Dstc stands for Dynamic stability traction control. It's more than just traction control. There is a yaw sensor underneath the drivers seat. If you want to turn it off press the dstc button 5 times , off,on in succession then it will say dstc off. But the next time you start the car it will be on as its volvo safety.
    You may have a cracked relucter ring so causing the system to cut in on right turns.

    Hi Anthony. Aha, I did turn it off (I just pressed and held the button to get it off), but like you say back on on next start up, and even when off it says DSTC reduced. maybe the 5 pressed does the full off then. Not a fan of any of this fancy electronic rubbish getting in the way of the chassis doing its thing. Where could this cracked reluctor ring be? presume Vida would tell me if something wrong?

    I doubt there’s anything wrong. Taking a sweeping bend at 80mph (I know the bend very well as I’ve taken it at that speed myself) your almost certainly loosing slight traction, hence why the DSTC light flickers. It’s normal and nothing to worry about.
    It means the system is functioning and preventing you from falling off the bend.
    Can I suggest slowing down a bit or maybe get better quality tyres!
    The speed limit on that bend is 50mph, once the exit splits and your committed to the M25 East bound.

    Hi Jon pressing it once reduces the system, pressing it 5 times turns it off. Even when you turn it off I don't think it's completely turned off though. Volvo safety again. If it only cuts in on this bend then as Lee says the system is doing it's thing. If it begins to start cutting in on most turns then you may have an issue.
    I turned mine off completely on a grass field and still I could hear it cutting in which is a shame.

    Pressing the DSTC button once - 'DSTC Function reduced' displayed in DIM - will turn OFF the traction control ONLY! All other DSTC functions will operate as normal.
    Pressing the DSTC button 5 times with a 1 sec pause between presses - 'DSTC ANTI SKID OFF' displayed in DIM. This fully disables the DSTC including TRACS (Traction Control) via the ABS and EBA.

    It would be unwise to fully disable the DSTC function on normal roads, as the system is designed to compensate for 'human error' and can react far quicker than you can. Yaw sensors and wheel speed sensors are constantly monitoring the cars behaviour in any giving moment and comparing that to pre programmed info. Any deviation from what's normal or considered 'normal' and the system will react by firing the ABS on any one given brake caliper to correct your sillyness.
    It can even reduce engine torque if required!
    When it's functioning the DSTC light will flash or come on.

    Cheers guys, so likely all ok. No DSTC or ABS service warnings on dash (not had Vida plugged in o see if a code), so presumably reluctor ring and abs sensors fine. Can go way faster in the Puma round the same bend (has TC but just the stuff like the T5 (I think) had that just does it thing at the lower end of the speed range.

    Yep pressing it once put on the Reduced pop-up on the dash and no knocking back of the engine / light on during the bend this morning. Not sure about slowing down is an option (it kicks in very early compared to what the wifes roller skate breezes round there doing)! Have to press the button before that bend each day or us the Puma

    Don't think I'll try the 5 button all off setting (a lot of faffing about!).

    Off to Spa next week for trackday in mates sc MX5 again (would be interesting in the Volvo - but think it would need a bit more power).

    Tyres are some Toyo's (new just before I got it in the Summer), not 888's.

    Could someone list all the parts I need when I get round to this awd service - will do when old exhaust come off, when have a new one (pity the thing is not just fwd with better TC!). I see Anthony's recent post of this stuff (bet he wises it FWD or RWD only!).

    I saw this post on Lee's thread.

    "Regards the awd it would be a good idea to get all the fluids changed angle gear, haldex coupling and filter and the rear diff.
    You have the angle gear as Volvo call it which is the transfer box. You have to pump the oil out and in to refill. Usually the splined sleeve from the gearbox fails mine did. Yours should be ok as it's a facelift model. Then there is the aoc active on demand coupling, the haldex which has a filter as well. Again pump the oil out and to refill. The pump has a mesh filter on it that you can remove and clean. You need to remove the exhaust and propshaft to remove the haldex pump. Lastly the rear diff again pump oil out and in to refill. I always use genuine volvo fluids for each. Lots of information on doing these jobs all over this forum and the internet".

    The fluids for the transfer box, this Haldex filter, fluids for this and the diff oil.

    Can I get to all this with the exhaust off and the prop on? (not sure I can face doing it). Was going to change exhaust in my garage on axle stands, but mechanic I use said I could just use his hoist and has those very easy so next to no labour, so just get him to do all this stuff when its off.

    Sounds like from the above the diff or the transfer case / angle gear do not have drain plugs (how nuts is that!).

    Hi Jon . All the fluids have to be pumped out as there are no separate drain plugs. I use a hand pump to empty and refill but a mityvac would be easier. You can replace all fluids and the haldex filter with the prop and exhaust still fitted but the top bolt on the haldex filter is a pain. Simple job with the prop removed.
    Also you can remove the pump and clean the mesh filter only with the prop and exhaust removed as when they are still fitted you can't get the pump past the prop.

    Cheers Anthony. So Oil for Angle gear and same for the Halex - should we source from Volvo or a rip off and can get same elsewhere. Will check my mechanic has one of those pumps for when we do this (thinking feb / march for this / pipe and map), then hopefully nothing for a long time after.....

    Just googling (thank time of year) numbers of S60R and V70R's in Auto and Manual there are.

    Christ 6 spd manual's really are rare birds!

    Getting the exhaust done this Friday. Was going to be IMP catback, until the cost of sending over here became apparent (I was ok with the cost and the vat / duty, but when I found out that the Fedex for it was going to be almost as much as the actual exhaust (as well!), well stuff that.

    Looked at a few systems from this side of the pond and almost plumped for the TME one. But not convinced by the twin pipe all the way through setup, rather than binning and just having a one bigger pipe all the way through as per IPD (3 1/8 equivalent) or LeeT5's (2.5") http://www.vpcuk.org/forums/showthre...day&highlight=. Discussed with Lee on his and decided this was the way to go (for me), so booked in with Fast Road Conversions in Kent.

    Did ask if they could do a 2.75" system, but do not do that size of tubing, and they seemed to think that the 2.5 would be limited to ~ 350bhp (which I doubt), knowing what a 2.5" system looks like from my NA 2.6 TR6 racer, I thought Hmm, does not seem that much, so asked if they could do 3" (still tad smaller than IPD), but with the same 2.5" tail pipes Lee had (so looks fairly stock - think std rear pipes are less than that - guessing 2.25ish). So going this route, but making sure it will definately not be loud unless properly on it (so will have a decent sized front silencer (rather than IPD's resonator). So basically as Lees just one size bigger pipe and 2 good sized boxes. Also If I was going for a downpipe at some point in the future (doubt it) it would all seemlessly being going from header to 3" downpipe to 3" catback.

    More Friday / Sat.

    Then having all fluids (+ Haldex filter (from Volvo), rear diff, mid stuff and gearbox flush / refill) changed when back home and with local mechanic. Then off for the map sometime in next few weeks.

    TME do a sport cat back which you will never get to it's limit no matter what you do to the engine.
    It's what i have on mine sounds nice but with the down pipe they do different ball game
    Text from there site.
    The modified S60R - V70R exhaust used by MTE and dynotested to 700 hp is now available. It makes a harder, but not much louder sound compared to our EU/TÜV-certified version. Back pressure is similar to our standard system if used with original turbocharger. Ground clearance is slightly better by 10-15 mm (1/2") It's available for all previous generation 2WD or AWD versions of S60-V70-S80 with either twin 70 mm or single 80 mm tailpipe. 

    When you see the stock exhaust next to the 3 diffrent manufacturers that make them for the S60R or V70R they all have the twin pipes like the stock cat back .
    Sorry ipd exhaust excluded .
    Why are you not keen for the twin pipes setup ?

    Just like the look of the one on Lee's and all my racers are single pipe jobs from the collector back, i.e. like IPD (but tad smaller bore and with proper front silencer.

    I think they will do a really good job from Lee's experience, plus it is drive in drive out, I like custom, can work out exactly what I want with the guy who will do the work when I arrive, i.e. how loud(not too much over stock, but deep when on it, ala AMG), read a book while it is being done.

    Pic's when done. Remap might have to wait, race cars all non-working and season just 2 months away(!), lots of towing and moving cars about! Will squeeze it in before April hopefully. Then that will be it, just keep it in tip top shape.

    On another note.

    Any one use these Toyo Proxes T1 Sport tyres? They were not long on it when I bought in the summer.

    Seem OK in the dry (but not great), but scatchy or wet not as good as the Goodyear Eagle F1's (or in the dry) I had on the T5. Not going to be changing anytime soon, but will be with something different when they need changing, Eagles likely.
