Volvo S80 2.4T Converting HU-801 to Single DIN / 1DIN

I was missing the option to play my own music using a iPod Classic interface, so decided to convert my HU-801 Volvo headunit to my trusty Pioneer 1DIN / Single DIN using a fascia plate and some converter cables.

I like the original look better, but the functionality of the Pioneer outweighs the look a couple of times, which makes it a no-brainer for me.

Volvo S80 2.4T New OEM Bosch MAF

As the car has already passed thr 300.000km mark, it’s time for renewing key components, like the Mass Airflow Meter (MAF). Decided to go OEM and opted for a Bosch one.

Restored some low down power, which is good news. Highly recommended!
