  1. That's the last time you have a go in it, bitch!
  2. 44 PSI = 3.0 bar = cracked block! As Tim says, I very much doubt it's boosting to 3.0 bar. Are you using a mechanical boost gauge?
  3. Bought these off "hybusamini" recently, but ended up sticking with my current blue door cards so they are no longer needed. They are in very good condition, all have speakers (but a grill or two missing) and come without the inserts. £60 collected.
  4. Sold
  5. must be desperate for the next 'mod' because he's now looking at BMW X5 bodykits!

      If you still have that 850? Fit a crank scraper, baffled sump with trapdoors, catch can and pan e-vac system and reduce crank case pressure to silly low levels Small horse power gain as well!

      Otherwise step away from the X5 body kits you will only make it look worse lol  

  6. I was running 17" 8J or 8.5J rims (the name escapes me at the moment, but they were commissioned by Volvo IIRC) with 235/40/17 Federal RSRs.
  7. Yes, 4.8s was the best I ever had out of it. 60-130 is considerably quicker than my 850, and that isn't slow either. If I came across another mint T4 (that one was absolutely mint inside & out, 49K miler when I bought it), I'd do it again.
  8. My old T4 was that colour. Brings back some fond memories... It went well too, 370 bhp (K24 turbo). No doubt yours will be quicker!
  9. 350 bhp, 470NM torque. Stock 2.3 head but with a 2.4 bottom end. NO methanol (not a fan of meth!). Rev limit set to 6850. Fuelling is exactly where I'd like it to be (AFRs), boost is 1.2 - 1.3 bar and tails off to 1.0 bar right at the top end.
  10. Do you have access to VIDA?
  11. Cool, I'm not too far away (near Amersham). I've owned 3 S60Rs in the past, at various stages of tune, would be good to meet up
  12. Where abouts in Bucks/west london are you?
  13. Pics not working for some reason. Are these from an estate or saloon? I might be interested.
  14. I was in two minds about whether to replace the freshly painted bumper on my 850 T5 with an R one, and in the end, I couldn't justify it. Instead, I decided to do something different than the usual R bumper route: It's a front splitter from the old Volvo V90. It was originally dark green, and extended beyond the 850 bumper at either end. So some slight tweaks with a grinder, a good rub down and several coats of black plastic bumper paint, and I think it looks pretty good (if you can ignore the state of the rest of the car!) The paint job is not perfect by any means, but from normal viewing distance, it looks great. Total cost: £50 inc. splitter delivered from a breakers and materials from Halfords / eBay. An R bumper, painted professionally, would've been north of £400! Edit: before you ask, the grille will be getting replaced with the correct coloured one!
  15. Initially, I wasn't really feeling the blue interior and was immediately on the look out for an R interior. Don't get me wrong, if I do come across a decent R interior, I might be tempted, but its a big job and not sure that I can be bothered. I did think about just swapping seats over, but I know that the mismatch will just get to me and I'll want to do the whole lot. The blue interior is growing on me and I think all that's really bothering me is the drivers seat support. I may end up just getting the front seats refurbished and I think that'd be most of my issue sorted. Also some decent floor mats (don't like the rugged rubbery type ones it currently has). As for the Porsche, it comes out to play now and then Will be using it more when the weather improves.
  16. Doesn't like the new look.

      Greg surely Mo more than anyone likes change, are we taking bets on how many cars He owns in 2017 :D

  17. Yeah, tell me about it. Never ending with an 850! Or... I can just let the splitter get dirty No more plans as such, just gonna see where it takes me. It's been my daily for the past 2 months or so and it's a hoot to drive, so don't really want to mess around too much with it. Next on the list is the front grille and tidy up some misc interior items.
  18. ... in the Boston Museum of Science car park 27/12 at ~10 PM with what sounded like a BSR exhaust. 17" pegs. The sad part is my spidey senses tingled when I heard the unmistakable sound of a 5-pot P2R and saw you coming round the corner shortly after!
  19. I know it's a little far for you but your best bet is to get it to Tim Williams (Coalville, Leicestershire) and let him offer his opinion on it. He is also in a good position to sort anything out and his prices are very reasonable. Car transportation is surprisingly cheap these days...
  20. I've fitted a rear strut brace on a number of my cars in the past and have always noticed a more planted turn in afterwards.
  21. A 2002 in the UK would 99.9% be a Phase II. The engine size for the Phase II T4 is 1948cc. Not sure if the same holds true for Mexico. It is very likely yours is the 1948cc. Incidentally, the Phase 1.5 is known to have the strongest engine of the lot. Your engine code should confirm which engine you have.
  22. After a decent set of shocks & lowering springs for 850/P1. Ideally Eibach springs and good standard shocks (don't necessarily need self-levelling).
  23. Oh no. What have I started.
