  • Al's XC90

    Thought I might as well start a thread on my xc90. It's a 2004 2.5T with a sunroof, beige leather interior and 3rd row seats. It had about 126,000kms when I bought it a few months ago. It's my daily driver now clocking up at least 500kms a week. I will be performing most of the servicing and maintenance on it.

    Since owning it I have replaced all the engine and trans mounts and given it an oil change. It travels well, smooth, very comfortable and I'm finding it very practical machine.

    Here we are up at Cradle Mountain with it this weekend in my home state Tasmania.

    On the way to Cradle Mountain..

    Up to Dove Lake. Awd/4x4 vehicles only. We have 6 inside in this leg of the journey. It's too foggy to see Cradle Mountain itself but will try again tomorrow..

  • 940 turbo

    Second @Philia_Bear on turning the boost to 12psi and installing an IPD Turbo cam are probably my two top rated mods, as they are quite easy to do and you'll really notice the difference!

    Just, when you turn the boost up, make sure you have a boost gauge with actual numbers on it!

    I recommend an adjustable timing gear with an update cam as they come on cam too late.

    Is that much work to carry out?

    Same effort as doing a cambelt
    Btw do the cambelt at the same time

  • ACT / Southern NSW: Yass to Wee Jasper Cruise: Saturday March 25, 2017

    Yass to Wee Jasper Cruise went well.

    No vehicle failures apart from Ondrej developing some miss issue.

    Lunch at the Duck and Fishes was excellent and the atmosphere and view very relaxing. Can highly recommend it.

    Roads were good fun, lots of hills and twists and the odd surprise too.

    Those to those who were able to turn up.

    Well it's slowly getting there, bolts panels back on next week, final rub and fix things I've missed, then paint body and finally bring the old girl home.
    Then after bank balance is replenished I can replace bushes, suspicion etc. All this time on a Volvo???? I would of NEVER thought it👍👍KSJcbEjh.jpg

    So I fitted the front sway bar, the inner guard and the instrument cluster, happily I also managed to fit a passenger side rear vision mirror!kAkG9Gvh.jpg
