Can We Get an Ultimate Parts Thread?
As quality parts have become harder and harder to come by, the time has come for us to create a parts thread that contains sources for QUALITY replacement parts.

As many have noticed, even with our go to parts sources, quality OEM or better parts are NLA and being replaced with Scantech, URO, MTC and the like that are designed to fit and be as cheap as possible and not much more.

PROTIP: Avoid Scantech MTC and URO if at all possible, I have never had a good experience with one of their products unless it is something that is impossible to screw up.

Here's my contribution, nothing new for most but will keep the noobs at bay. I'll reserve a few posts and update as people contribute. I've listed a few parts I used to know where to find but cant find a bookmark or on google anymore. I will also list on going group buys or people on the board that are constantly churning out goods. If any members want their names removed from the list let me know.

DISCLAIMER: Niether turbobricks.com nor I are responsible for the actions of any vendors listed here.

I've found if you search by part number you can get pretty much any Volvo part that is still available.

"If it's in stock, we have it" - slogan of a local (non-automotive) company.

Good thread BTW. We need one for part numbers, too.

moustacio 08-15-2012 11:47 AM

This noob thanks you Mr. Claypool

towerymt 08-15-2012 12:05 PM

stuck the thread. worth a shot, would be nice to have a list of sources.

Krisverde 08-15-2012 01:38 PM

Awesome! This is great to have as I see many other forums with this stuff.

gsellstr 08-15-2012 01:45 PM

Superpro poly bushing catalog

OEM Volvo parts:
http://www.myvolvopartsonline.com - Turner Volvo
http://www.carlsenvolvo.com/ - Carlsen Volvo, Larry has the resources and knowledge to find just about anything if it's still available.

Excellent thread BTW!

quoaz 08-15-2012 04:13 PM

Never ordered from them, but I guess its worth noting

billkaz 08-15-2012 05:47 PM

BMA Auto.


Free shipping over $50. Prices were good, comparable to Amazon or Rockauto.

Lando 08-15-2012 10:08 PM

Updated. Thanks for the input guys and for sticky status.

quoaz 08-20-2012 09:08 PM

This place just showed up in off-topic. I think I'll use it for heater hoses and the odd ball parts later this year.


Just noticed their in stockholm. Roughly 30$ shipping to US. Still a source for those euro sidelights and stuff.

kendogg 08-22-2012 12:21 PM

Also www.pelicanparts.com for replacement parts. I prefer them over FCP to be honest.

The Full Banana 08-22-2012 12:56 PM

wow, great work. it's about damn time TB got a decent thread like this.

Volvo802 08-24-2012 08:51 PM

WORD! Already spent $200 bucks thanks to you, ahaha.

mjcerati 09-09-2012 09:51 PM

He's really wonderful to deal with, and being local to both BVV and Tasca (and having gone to both multiple times) I can vouch that they are awesome assets to finding OEM parts.

Also will this have a "Sweden-based performance/modification parts suppliers"/"good luck paying for shipping unless you baller" list? Such as
L-M-R http://www.l-m-r.se/ - Body parts, small modifications, performance
Do88 http://www.do88.se/ - Volvo specific silicone kits and drop-in intercoolers
Sam Steffansson - http://www.sambilmode.se/ - performance parts, exhausts, etc.

Few more, can't think of.

Also OBX makes a 2.5" stainless cat-back exhaust for the 740/940 turbo. Worth mentioning, as it's more useful than their header, and is shiny.

Great thread.

Edit: Also, Australia

DVS - http://www.dvs.net.au/

Tasca's parts division has their own website - http://www.tascaparts.com. It's much easier to get at their catalog if you go straight there then try to find a link from tasca.com.

Lando 09-11-2012 12:38 AM

Updated, thanks for the contributions.

Been buying from FCP for many years.
Now they give "discount codes" to some, not others.

Joe and Mike are great, but the rest I've dealt with sound like burger flippers.

Took them three tries- and several weeks of my time (had to SUGGEST they OVERNIGHT me the correct part) after sending me the wrong intake gasket as part of all OEM pcv kit.

Their free shipping is a crapshoot too. Its called "Surepost" and its not insured, and cannot be tracked according to their site. I live in the SW United States and orders take 8-9 days on average.

It's a shame since they have a great selection. They used to be ok with me when free shipping was straight UPS. Don't like spending a grand and not being able to track my order...

98FORCED5 09-17-2012 07:56 AM

Disregard please.
