Does that td05 work well with Volvo exhaust manifold? What kind of turbine housing does it have? Keep up your good work!

I was having some random running issues where it would go dead rich and I assumed it was something with the new turbo but it was just another MAF failure. I think that's like the 5th or 6th one in my 3 years of Volvo ownership.



It's a TD05H-20G with an 8cm T3 housing, internally gated. Apart from the drain being really close to the actuator and having to ratchet strap the engine to get the manifold/turbo in there, install was pretty painless. 55.8/49.1mm inconel turbine wheel, 52.5/68mm compressor wheel, AR .57.

I bought MTC mudflaps to protect my rust holes and I gotta say I'm a little disappointed in the quality control..

It ran great with a known good maf, for a few miles. It's doing the same crap in that video now.

No amount of blur will hide the rust.

My intake manifold appears to be leaking oil.



Still trying to get the kinks worked out but I should be able to slap in my new injectors and start playing with the boost soon..

Today I drove on an actual racetrack for the first time. I'd say it was a success since I was able to drive the car home in one piece, but unfortunately I only got to do about 15 minutes of actual balls to the wall driving. SCCA Tracknight event at Palmer motorsports. Paced laps went well then in my first session I was trying my darndest to pass the Cayman in front of me (He was going pretty slow, for that car) and I noticed some weird noises in boost and it was running terrible at part throttle. Also the temp gauge was riding the white line just before the red zone. I decided to keep pushing since it wasn't knocking or seriously overheating, but then my brake pedal went to the floor with no warning. Cruised back into the pits and found all my turbo to manifold nuts were completely loose..

The nuts holding my turbo on are copper locknuts and I made sure they were all super tight this morning while I was giving it a check over. The manifold to head nuts are exactly the same and haven't come loose at all.

I'm dumb for never having bled the brakes on this car but in my defense, before today at least, it always had a super solid pedal and stopped really good. After they cooled off I had my pedal back but it was a bit spongy so I just bolted my turbo back on and drove home instead of taking my chances going back out. The turbo gasket is wasted and leaky now too.

Dunno what to do about the cooling problem.. I've got a Nissens 3 row in nice shape that I thoroughly flushed when I had the head off. Running roughly 20% coolant and some Water Wetter. Also starts to run a little hot at 70-80 on the highway with the AC on full blast. Running a stock 940 fan with the shroud modified to fit.

Still a really fun day.




Oh yeah, my overdrive went out like a mile after I got on the highway. It was doing some weird stuff until I turned it off. Hopefully it's just low on fluid, haven't even checked it in 3 years. I was gonna do a fluid change but my new overdrive gasket was torn..

Never buying a K&N filter again. The drainback valve just didn't work, took 5+ seconds for the oil light to go out on cold starts. Like two drops came out when I replaced it with a Mann.

I also put in all my gauges. Hot idle is a hair over 1bar, 3-4bar cruising. I'm a little concerned about the hot idle but I think it's fine. 5w40 synthetic. Somehow broke all my dash lights except for the one over the fan knob..

Decided I hated the tailpipe, mainly because it wasn't straight so its been replaced with a stock one.

Put on my IPD bash pan to hopefully gain a little mileage and cooling efficiency. Thinking of sticking a pusher fan in front of the condenser.

Also changed the ATF for 5w30 (10w30? I forget) in the M46. Shifting feels the same but overdrive works now. I haven't seen how well it works over a long drive and I don't expect it to live a whole lot longer. On the hunt for a new M46.

I'll give you what you paid for it if you throw in that 140 of yours.

Overdrive is definitely gone. I got it to engage but it kept going in and out. Probably just needs new solenoid o rings or whatever, but I picked this up today:



Early style with mech speedo. Guy said OD worked fine so it might work. We'll see.

I made a mistake. I measured all my old clutch disks and threw in the thickest one. It slips bad. It's my old cali clutch smoothlock, when it started slipping previously I thought it was the pressure plate. It's about .3mm thicker than the Sachs disk I had, which could barely hold the power. The good news is that my trans shifts great and the overdrive works perfect. Speedo works too now, although it reads slow. (Shows 35 when I'm doing 40.) I really don't feel like taking the trans out again.. Getting it out is easy enough but it took me about 3 hours just to get it to line up and slide in place.

I got my flywheel surfaced which I was hoping would fix my first gear shudder but it's just a little better now. Oh well.

Also drilled and tapped my manifold for m10 studs, no more leak.




I also put in a little pusher fan to help the AC while parked. It's just wired to the high side of the main relay. I went with the 10" so I can put a second one in if I want to.

I went back to the track today. Did a lot better than last time. Managed to get through every session without completely losing the brakes. Didn't run as hot as last time either, though it was a cooler day so that doesn't really say if my new rinky dink pusher fan helps or not. Biggest problem was the transmission. I ran the whole track in third except for fourth on the main straight. Towards the end the shifting from 4th to 3rd was starting to feel.. not good. Second is usable for normal driving but WOT makes the shifter bind up really hard in that gear. And then the turbo fell off, because of course it did.

I passed a new Mustang tho. And then I got passed by a Cobalt.





I put in a new glovebox and redid the intake again. Someone, I suspect the same person who did the bondo job, stripped every glovebox screw so I tapped them all for M5 and used bolts instead. Interior is almost mint, just need to tuck the ECUs away somewhere, get a not ugly radio, and do something about the duct taped rip on the driver's door panel.
