IIRC It's a part of the AC system, for the purple high pressure switch, could possibly also be towards the bumper outside temperature sensor, which were green blue in the looms I've thinned down.

Nice progress!

Thx !


Made some progress here and there..

























Im just trying to figure out if i can use a BMW E39 Fuelfume Breatherbox instead of the OEM one, cause it is much more compact or if the valve is missing and i need a separate one or if im just uwsing the OEM box when i find a used one.

It is not far from its second first start up

I was planning to get one of those bodymount shifters, but ended up doing stock style shifter mount during m90 swap to my 240. Maybe some day if you get good results using one?

it is awesome.. i found myself sitting in the car rocking through the gears making some turbowhistle and blowoff noises like a little child :D

it is pretty easy to adapt the oem shifterbag to fit it.. retropete send me the shifter to write a how to. 8t is pretty easy to install it and the gears kick in pretty tight

Indeed it was the wiring. Got myself some really cool 8 pin AMP superseal like connectors and got the harness redone and repaired the rearbumper.. typical problem.. Aluminium on Steel and got some cocaine unter the Damper :D
















The car saw sunlight leaving the garage on its own feet under own power.. that was a nice moment

I managed to get my hands on some KZK-plates which allowed me to drive the car around for 5 days. Tried to get TüV.. the never ending Story remains :(

I needed to replace the RetroTurbo Gearbox mount with an OEM one. Nothing against The RetroTurbo one, but it made from PU and it is like the gearbox is mounted flush with the body. Everythings shakes and rattles.. .. it is not *bear*able ;) when driving around but the load changes with that really feel great, almost motorsportlike.

The car really felt great, all those bugs and features from the last drive and in that youtube video are gone and i believe it was the toasted connectors in the wiringharness/plugs. So always good to redo the connectors ;)

Some pics:

Infront of buddies house fetching him up for a ride


preparing the car for the ride (sry for quality)




trailering the car to TüV cause the apointment during those 5 days was cancelled due to corona ^^

Yeah, the GTÜ which my buddy recommended me through a bit of "Vitamin B" was unable to accomodate a Turbo from an V70 and also the brakes...

My next try is the "real" TüV when this does not Work either i will try a local tunershop specialized for engineswaps and road legality

Started to part out the Slaughterhorse and scavanged some Plasticparts and the carpets to replace the broken ones in the 16v









Deciced to redo the whole interior cause i sourced a König seat with no holes for harness which i searched for years... (was sold with a Slalom racecar i accidentially bought :D )











My Luck was, my buddy wanted to help me out and he has one of these fancy active carpetcleaner hoovers... this thing is a beast
Also the Tornadogun really helps. the carpets look and smell as good as almost new











I really like how all the Leather, Carpet, Plastictrim and ceiling cleaning came out.. the car never looked as good as it does now being owned by me












I also ordered an HKS Mushroom Airfilter just for the swooosh jijijij :D Am creating an almost sealed box out of a BSR Airfilter Tray for the stealthyness









Oh.. i almost forgot.. i have TüV !! :D The journey of my life has come to an end.. made an appointment for registering the car as seasoncar, have to wait 2 more weeks but anyway.. Time in which i can do some last stuff
