Volvo S80 2.4T Old Key to Flip Key

Bought a flip key on Aliexpress and went to the key service to get it working. Looks much better and takes less space in pockets etc.

Highly recommended modification!

Volvo S80 2.4T Replacing the Car Battery

Replaced the old battery with a fresh new battery. Decided to mount a larger type, as the S80 has room for it.

See the big difference in size, which should account for a little bit more performance and safety as it has a lot more power.

Volvo S80 Uprated Exhaust Manifold 30637921

Scored a uprated exhaust manifold, which is stock on newer turbo models. It has better runners and collector.

It should give some extra performance and also has a lower thermal load, which should reduce the strain on the turbo and exhaust.

Made in Japan

Volvo S80 2.4T Old vs New Coolant Expansion Tank

Bought a new Febi coolant expansion tank as the old one was tatty, old and brown.

Looks better in the engine where no one else looks, but me 🙂

Volvo S80 2.4T OEM Rubber Floor Mats

Ditched the old floor mats and bought me some original Volvo rubber mats. They might not look as nice, but they are far sturdier and they are much easier to maintain.

Volvo S80 2.4T PCV DIY Repair / Service

Repaired / cleaned the PCV circuit as I saw a lot of oil in the pressure circuit (also see my previous post: http://www.ducked.nl/blog-entries/volvo-s80-2-4t-dirty-clean-turbo-coldside/ ).

Did a little research and the PCV system is almost always the culprit for such issues.

Decided to buy a complete system although ended up cleaning the existing system and only replacing the oil seperator. The tubing was quite some work, I will save that for another time.

Volvo S80 2.4T Dirty / Clean Turbo Coldside

Replaced the air filter and the turbo intake pipe. Please note that a dirty intake might also point out a badly functioning PCV system!

The intake pipe was upgraded to a blue Do88.se / Do88 silicone intake pipe, which is a fair bit larger, but also deletes some bottlenecks from the original part (like the narrowing bend on the bottom and the “harmonica”).

Gives a little bit more power from the butt dyno and noticed more intake growl (which is a good thing) 🙂
