Volvo S80 2.4T New Mambatek Turbo Wastegate Actuator

I had a feeling that the Volvo wasn’t making enough power and when I tested the wastegate actuator, it felt loose and sloppy.

Checking the turbogauge showed me that I was running on 0.3 – 0.35 BAR max, whilst it needs to make 0.5 bar aka 7-8 PSI.

I decided to order a new wastegate actuator from Mambatek which is a direct replacement.

It took a little bit more effort than expected, but I was able to get it done and the results are there. The turbo is able to boost to 0.5 BAR aka 7-8 PSI again. Result!

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 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.
