The boss’s new daily driver…

Been working on the boss’s new car, he’s giving up his VW TDI for this Volvo V70R wagon.  It only has 300 hp with AWD, and of course that isn’t fast enough….

Didn’t get a picture before I took the car apart, but it is a little darker blue than this one from Aude, Wikimedia contributor.

The AWD didn’t work, so into the shop… the front pumpkin is splattered. So now, the longer it sits here waiting on parts, the longer  the list of renovations is getting…. Off with the turbo for mods, replumbing the engine with new up pipes, downpipes, in and out pipes, and a new, huge intercooler…

Broken front angle gear for AWD…

But wait, there’s more!

Motor mounts, a arms, hot rodded valve body, gauge cluster for the dash…. new brakes (this car does have nice brakes),  should be fun…
