Re: Everything I need to know about a 340 T5 conversion??

my friend made a point today, why spend quite a bit of money making the 1.7 turbo to 200 bhp and also more unreliable, than with a t-5 there's already more than 200bhp and it will still be reliable and there's also the room for more power if I want it.

If I hit the radius arm mounting where the bushes are forward, will that fix it?

Re: one wheel further back than otherside? (pics)

I know one of the radius arms have a slight bend but I can't see how it's pulled the wheel that far back, how do you fit them incorrectly?

one wheel further back than otherside? (pics)

Just got the volvo back on ground after fitting coilys, i new the wheel was further back before i changed everything but didnt think much of it and left it but now its annoying me. Ignore the wheels/tyres just slung them on on to get it back on the ground. Drivers side http://i866.photobucket.com/al...
