Volvo S80 2.4T DO88.se Turbo Intake pipe

Replaced the air filter and the turbo intake pipe.

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) 🙂

Volvo S80 2.4T Painting the Brake Calipers Daytona Yellow

Decided to paint the calipers for extra flair and to be honest it looks way better than that rusty brown color.

Bought some MHW Daytona Yellow paint and combined it with the yellow Prancing moose shield.

In the meantime, they have been replaced by black “carbon” units, which look better. This will be shown in a later post.

Volvo S80 2.4T Changing the Interior Combo filter

Needed to change the interior / combofilter and was suprised by this malformed unit.

Looks like someone didnt do their job properly…Shameful really.

Easy DIY job, which shouldn’t take more than half an hour.

Volvo S80 2.4T Soundproofing

When I last performed maintenance to the window sliders, I noticed the doors had not been soundproofed yet. Bought me a big mat on Aliexpress and went to work today.

Door card removal is very easy on the Volvo, so I was done in a very small time frame, which is always nice. The impact of such a simple thing like soundproofing is always noticeable, as the resonance from the tinny doors are removed, which allows for better sounding music + less cabin sound/drone.

Highly recommended & easy to do yourself!

Volvo S80 2.4T Denso Injector Service

Decided to clean and service the stock Denso injectors. Rubber rings get hard and brittle over time and tend to leak. Also the filter baskets might be contaminated over time, especially if the fuel filter is not part of your regular service intervals (which mine S80 lacked…).

I bought this kit of Aliexpress and the quality looks very nice. It contains all the items needed, including a special tool for removing/mounting the filter baskets.

The pictures will speak for themselves (it was needed!).

Volvo S80 2.4T Changing Spark Plugs (NGK K20TT 4604)

Fitted some fresh new plugs and decided to try NGK copper plug instead of Volvo OEM Iridium plugs. They work great and cost next to nothing. Decided to try NGK K20TT 4606. Double checked the gap to be sure, they are correctly preset for the Volvo S80 2.4 / 2.5T.

Still have to get used to swapping out 5 spark plugs instead of the “usual” 4.

Volvo S80 2.4T Do88.se Blue Silicone Intercooler Hoses

Replaced some old deteriorated intercooler hoses with new fresh Do88.se blue silicone hoses, which do not collapse anymore. I solved a hiccup when flooring the car from low rpm (due to sturdiness of the new hoses).

Volvo S80 2.4T New Bosch O2 Lambda Sensor

As a car grows older, parts outreach their peak efficiency and should be replaced with new parts. Like the front O2 lambda precat sensor, which has an replacement interval of 250.000km, which my car already replaced sometime ago. Replaced it with a genuine Bosch OEM part. Noticed that my Long Term Fuel Trims (LTFT) were dropping, which is a good indicator.

Volvo S80 2.4T Fitting a new Compressor Bypass Valve (CBV)

I noticed some strange behaviour when lifting the throttle and decided to service the CBV aka Compressor Bypass Valve. I was right, car drives a lot better after replacing it with a fresh CBV / DV (Diverter Valve).

I went with an aftermarket TRITDT K5T09671.

Volvo S80 2.4T Replacing Window Sliders

Easy mod with big results. If you have a Volvo with a choppy window, 9 out of 10, it will be the window sliders. They are quite easy to replace though. Tip: buy them on Aliexpress for cheap!

Volvo S80 2.4T Replacing the Bosch O2 Lambda Sensor

Many people tend to forget that O2 aka Lambda sensors have a replacement interval (in my case 250.000km). Failing to do so will have direct impact on your power and mileage. I checked using Torque (Android app) and checking the Long Term Fuel Trims (LTFT). I noticed that they dropped after installing the new Bosch O2 sensor.

Volvo S80 2.4T CAI Intake Modification

Decided to mod the intake flap to a more direct version, which should aid in forcing air into the airbox. Performance could be better, although right now I dont have the means to measure this.

Volvo S80 2.4T Replacing vacuum lines with Silicone Hoses

A highly recommended repair / modification for all older Volvo owners. Replacing the old rubber vacuum lines with strong durable silicone hoses. I bought 3 color hoses (red / black/ blue) as the original hoses also have color stamps on them. Old rubber hoses deteriorate from heat and moisture and will fail over time. Replacing them with silicone hoses ensures a proper running car!

Volvo S80 2.4T Trunk Spoiler

Volvo S80 2.4T Upgrading Interior Lights with LEDs

To modernize the car and make it more future proof, I decided the replace as much halogen bulbs with LEDs. I didn’t want the 6500k Blueish tint, but instead opted for a warmer white color, which are a little bit more white than their halogen counterparts. Very happy with the end result!

Volvo S80 2.4T Replacing the Upper Engine Mount with SuperPro Polybush

I noticed that when lifting off (like shifting), there was a lot of movement / play in the engine / gearbox. So when I inspected the upper engine mount, I found the root cause rather quickly. The rubber deteriorated and there wasn’t much left of the original rubber bushing.

Having read the other options, like fitting a polybush, I went with the SuperPro version which looked like a good bit of kit. Mounting the new polyurethane kit was quite a breeze. Fortunately, the original bushing has a plastic ring 🙂 The SuperPro kit consists of 2 pieces, which makes the mount very easy to replace.

Result: a much better shifting car, putting the power down goes a lot better now. I will also replace the bottom gearbox mount with a polyurethane version soon.

Very easy job to do at home. This also applies to the S60 and V70, as these are quite identical.

Vw Golf MK3 GTI, Repaint All The Trim

As the car is quite old, the plastic trim of the car has been exposed to the influence of the sun for countless of times, which greys out the once black plastic trim. I decided to repaint it all, as the grey trim is just plain ugly. The most work was to mask of the rest of the car, the rest was easy 🙂

VW Golf MK3 GTI, New Fuel Pump

As the car is about 21 years old, it was about time the fuel pump was renewed. A fuel pump gets old and will be unable to deliver the desired fuel pressure when needed. This will have a big impact on the performance as you might imagine. It took me quite some time as the retaining ring was stuck, like real stuck…

I was finally able to prise it of, but needed to perform some cleaning before putting in the new pump. But it was worth it!

I chose black faux leather with red stitching for the VW Golf.

VW Golf MK3 GTI Mesh Grille

Bought a new grille (without the VW logo), but I didn’t want the one with the double louvres, as that has been tried and tested. I noticed this one from JOM and ordered it. Got a message back from a Dutch webshop that they aren’t able to deliver anymore. Searched and found it on German Ebay, for less than price that the Dutch webshop advertised it for, so happy days 🙂

VW Golf MK3 GTI Airbox Modification

The best airfilter on the Golf MK3 GTI platform is the original airbox with paper filter. But you might miss out on induction noise, something so desired on any naturally aspirated (NA) engine 🙂

There are ways to give you some induction noise, namely:

  • Drilling the airbox
  • Removing the snoot to the side of the car
  • Fitting a (Bonrath) Powerrohr / roar

I bought myself an extra airbox and removed the snoot + drilled extra holes on the cold side of the car.

Swapping out the VW Golf MK3 GTI Crankshaft Position Sensor

My car was cutting out when the engine was hot. RPM gauge dropped to zero instantly & engine cuts out immediateley. Scanning the car with vagcom / VCDS showed an error with the G28 sensor aka Crankshaft Position sensor. Other names are Engine Speed sensor and in Dutch BDP sensor or krukaspositie sensor.

I followed this video guide, which helped me tremendously, so thank you Thomas EXOVCDS. Took me about an hour on axle stands, so not that bad.




Toyota Aygo Eco badge

As many of you might now, I make a sport out of driving as economical as possible (without being too extreme). As I was searching on Aliexpress, I found this fun badge, which expresses my driving style perfectly. I was able to plug the holes with some plastic grommets.

VW Lupo 1.4 old sparkplugs replaced

Driving 140km a couple times per week stresses the car more than you would think. Keeping it in tip top shape is important, even more so with an older car like our VW Lupo which was born in 1999 (1.4 16v, engine code AHW). Less than a year when the last service was done, I checked the spark plugs (as it was starting a bit rough). Look at the picture to understand why…

Please note that I needed to wait before the NGK Iridium sparkplugs (type: BKR6EIX-11 3764) were delivered, So I bent the old one, so that the gap was made smaller.

Sound Proofing the Aygo

The Aygo has pretty flimsy doors, which don’t help much with the sound quality of your sound system & background noise when you are driving your car. I bought some sound proofing on eBay & added it on the front + rear doors & spare tire well.

Sound quality has been improved greatly & road noise has been reduced. All in all a must have mod for your Toyota Aygo / Peugeot 107 or Citroen C1.

VW Lupo DIY Transmission fluid change

Decided it was a good time to change the transmission fluids / oil in the Lupo 1.4 16v (engine code AHW). Transmission oil has probably never been changed (since 1999), so it will only do good in this trusty car. 17mm Hex required, I decided to make my own tool for it. An old 17mm standard wheel bolt with 2 big nuts on the screw end did the trick for me.

I decided for 3 liters of Castrol 75W80 Syntrans V FE (2.7 liters needed). Needed some music, hence the Klipsch Promedia GMX 2.1 speakerset 🙂

Gear changing has been improved big time, shouldve done this earlier! This guide also applies to the Seat Arosa.

Nederlandse vertaling

Besloten om de transmissie / bakolie te verversen bij de Lupo 1.4 16v 75PK (motorcode AHW). De olie is waarschijnlijk nog nooit vervangen in 17 jaar tijd (sinds 1999), geen overbodige luxe dus. Je hebt een 17mm hex bout nodig om de bouten los te draaien. Ik heb hiervoor een zelfgemaakte tool gebruikt, een standaard 17mm wielbout met achterop 2 grote moeren. Zorg er altijd (!!!) voor dat je eerst de vulbout loshaalt.

De drain plug zit op een lastige plek, waardoor je niet veel ruimte hebt voor beweging, je moet dan ook vanuit een hoek werken. Na het vullen merk je een mega verschil. Schakelen gaat veel soepeler en het zal wellicht ook merkbaar zijn in het verbruik. Het kost je ongeveer 45-60 minuten om dit zelf te doen.




Toyota Aygo DIY Transmission fluid change

Decided to change the transmission fluid / oil with some fresh new fluids / oil on the Toyota Aygo (also applies to Citroen C1 / Peugeot 107). Can only have a positive effect on changing gears and fuel economy. It’s an easy job which should take you between 30-60 minutes. Fluid used: Castrol 75W90 Syntrans Universal Plus (1.7L needed).

First make sure that you try to undo the filler nut first (always!). The filler nut can be found at the front of the engine, right behind the radiator / fan.

Toyota Aygo - DIY Transmission Fluid Change

This is the location of the draining plug. Has the same size as the filler nut and is easily accessible.

Toyota Aygo - DIY Transmission Fluid Change

After draining (let it drain for 10-15 minutes), redo the draining nut and prepare for refilling. Make sure the diameter of the filling hose is smaller than the filling port, as this will increase the filling speed significantly.

This is how I filled the transmission again.

Toyota Aygo - DIY Transmission Fluid Change

Results, super smooth gear changes! Have to comment on fuel economy, as it is too soon to tell.

Nederlandse vertaling

Besloten om de transmissie / bakolie zelf te vervangen met verse olie / vloeistoffen. Kan alleen maar een positief effect hebben op het schakelgedrag en het verbruik van de Aygo. Dit is een klusje wat je prima zelf kan doen en kost je ongeveer 30-60 minuten. Gekozen vloeistof: Castrol 75W90 Syntrans Universal Plus (1.7 liter benodigd voor een schakelbak, 1.4 liter voor een automaat).

Als je een vloeistof kiest, zorg er dan voor dat de vloeistof voldoet aan de API GL-4 standaard.

Zorg er altijd voor dat je de bout van het vulgat eerst loshaalt voordat je de boel laat leeglopen! De bout voor het vullen heeft dezelfde afmeting als de drain plug. Als je gaat bijvullen, zorg dan dat de diameter van de slang een stukje kleiner is dan het vulgat, dat helpt met de snelheid van het vullen.

Toyota Aygo K&N 57i (57-0669) kit

Via Marktplaats een mooie K&N 57i kit (57-0669) kunnen scoren, die ook gebruikt kan worden op de Citroën C1 of Peugeot 107. Geeft een mooie roffel bij volgas en zou de Aygo weer een stukje zuiniger moeten maken. Dit gaan we uiteraard goed testen!

De kit is lichtjes gemod met een doorzichtige slang voor de carterventilatie (PCV).

Toyota Aygo Boot Leakage Fixed / Solved

Ik had het niet meteen door, maar mn reservewiel ruimte zat vol met water. Ik had de gebruikelijke plekken al afgekit, zoals de aansluiting met de achterlichten en de rubberen dopjes voor de achterklep. Maar nog steeds bleef er (veel) water binnenkomen. Nu las ik een tip over 2 ventilatie gaten achterin en dat was bij mij ook de oorzaak. Ik heb rondom de rubbers veel kit gespoten, zodat de aansluiting op de carosserie nu 100% waterdicht is. Dit was ook de oorzaak van beslagen en bevroren ramen (aan de binnenkant) Probleem opgelost!

Deze tip kan je ook gebruiken voor de Peugeot 107 en/of de Citroën C1 (C ONE)

Haal eerst de achterbumper los, zodat het er zo uitziet. Tip: maak meteen de schoon waar je dalijk niet bij kan.

Toyota Aygo Paint It Black!

Omdat de Aygo zo mooi zwart is en de chromen delen er zo “uitspringen” ben ik van plan om zoveel mogelijk zwart te maken. “Murdered out” zoals ze het in Amerika noemen, ben dan ook al begonnen met de logo’s voor en achter, de badges op de achterkant en de sleutelgaten in beide voordeuren. Zie hier het resultaat 🙂

Omdat ik zag dat de koelvloeistof temperatuur niet boven de 85 graden uitkwam, ben ik op onderzoek uitgegaan en las dat dit opgelost kon worden door de grille te blokkeren. Ik had het al geprobeerd met de kentekenplaat, maar dit had niet het gewenste effect.
