        Not sure what's next. It needs an lsd, is pretty spritely. More boost is always the answer, not sure how much headroom I have in these injectors. I've seen about 12psi I think.

        - Wheels
        - more boost
        - headlining
        - those shaved headlights from the us models??
        - headlight windscreen wipers
        - front seats retrimmed or replaced
        - pcv rebuild
        - 6speed manual plus lsd out of a c30 t5 (unlikely but would be so good)

        Then I'm probably done with it, it's a pretty nice daily now, I have a supra if I want to drive fast.

          I remember one of these being the first "nice" car I had been in. I think the quality of the leather stands out.

          20 odd years later I managed to convince the nopics to get it's grand kid. Volvo wagons are understated cool! Click image for larger version

              Envious. Wanted a V60 when I bought my XC60, but there was nothing around that met my criteria. Now I have the XC60, that shape V60 is on the cards for the next upgrade.

                Re the old man's e he has one of these (this picture is his car) : https://www.concours.com.au/recreati...ype-recreation

                3.8 alloy billet block, wide angle c&g head, e85 , 400hp at crank, 900 ish kgs.

                And one of these: https://www.concours.com.au/recreati...rag-recreation

                4.2 , haltech, t56, air con 200 rwkw at 5850rpm approx 1000kgs.

                On the lolvo it's so funny to me that a large car like the v70/850 is such a small car today. Sure its a fair bit longer but here she is next to a Mitsubishi colt 🤣

                Just checked out those links, seriously cool cars. Your dad has very good taste!

                For Pegasus wheels, it might be worth a look on Yahoo Japan, as weird as that sounds. They don't come up for sale often over here, and are pretty expensive, however whenever I was bored and looked at wheels on Yahoo there were always a few sets available.

                The headlight wipers seem to have came standard on V70R and S60R models, so might be worth specifically looking for those?

                    Local V70 XC's of around the 1998 Vintage had the headlight wipers if you can find one!!!

                        Will the XR5 wheels fit? Paint them bronze?

                            Sweet! Thanks all.

                            Bren great idea re japan

                            mizone they do I think but centre bore is different, 63.1mm on this chassis 850/p80/v70/s70/c70 and I think 65 ish mm on the later ones

                            piss98 good thinking, should be able to find some at the wreckers

                            timtx5 that's mint. Is it the turbo supercharged 2 litre?

                            @neek enroute!

                            Sloth indeed my good man, indeed. Once manual goes in.

                            I've been on yahoo japan and found some of the R pegasus wheels but fuck me they are expensive , or the yen has fingered the aud - $1300 for a set and that's the japan price before delivery freight etc.

                            It'd probably be cheaper buying a whole car from auction.

                                I'm not 100% as this is all new to me; but I think

                                - R wheels
                                - R suspension
                                - 225bhp here vs 240bhp on the R (3psi? Same turbo I think)
                                - front bumper is different
                                - dash maybe got R treatment??
