Heres the only vids i have of the car, not too recent, but in the same form it is now.



If you watch the wideband in this one you can see how rich it gets towards the top, a testament to running a mbc and stock motronic

Thanks man! Yeah I love my ipd springs, they give the perfect stance for a daily driver like mine imo. I can still get in and out of pretty much everywhere i want to and it still looks great.

Not too many changes done to the car, just maintenence and driving the piss out of it. I've really put some miles on the engine and it still runs flawlessly. Only thing I really did to it was ditch that blue catch can in favor of one I made out of some exhaust pipe I had laying around that I welded some baffles into.

Heres a rolling shot from carlisle to show it in its current form:

Parked it in a 7 foot deep ditch last night with about 2 inches of snow on the road, falken 912s are not snow tires. All in all got really lucky considering i hit a 5 foot concrete pylon with the LF.




All it needs is a new wheel and a new koni adjustable. The strut is on the way from ipd.

That looks really good, all things considered.

I had a Titan welded by Ye Olde Wheel shop in Elkridge, MD. It was on the front side where the edge got folded between the spokes. They do nice work, it was barely noticable. If you just buy a new wheel, weld/straighten for a spare.

This thing has been severely neglected lately, as its needed brakes and I just decided to drive the 242 around. I have been amassing parts to go on it for a while, so I decided to put some of them to use. I scored a set of tan V70R door panels at carlisle this year, and they were pretty beat. Tonight I started a little door panel clinic to get them back into shape. All of my stock ones were peeling in the corners like they all do, so this is a major improvement.

Here's a comparison of stock vs. R to show what the difference is. The R ones are stitched leather and don't peel in the corners like the vinyl ones do. You can see however that the R one I got was falling apart, they were all like that. Not a huge surprise, as the glue that was used to hold these things together is terrible.


Separated from the main panel I cleaned and treated the insert with lexol and let it dry.


Gorilla glue was then applied to put it all back together.


Clamped up and curing.


And the drivers installed after it received the same treatment.


Much better over peeling stock lameness, and more leather is mo better.

Sweet looking S70, i still love the shape of these. It was either an s70 or 850 T5 i was looking for when my 850R turned up.

Dude.. I really don't like you anymore after seeing this thread. I searched for 6 months looking for a stock t5m. Nearly impossible to find, even naturally aspirated 5 speeds are rare. That is one of the most beautiful s70s ive ever seen.

hi, fellow s70 owner here.
i trying to lower my S70R but as the R wasnt made in most places finding performance parts that will fit is hard!
are the shocks and springs you have for the v70R as well?

also it sounds just like mine from the video you posted, i thought id share my similar video with you.
good luck

Sounds Good! Does sound like either some bov flutter or compressor surge though.

I'm really wanting to awd this car lately...

Yeah but mostly because I just haven't wanted to put the money in the car. It will have some sort of ems when I put a new turbo on it.

Funny how that works when you acquire a 242... or 2 LOL

Money for the S70 just dries up.
