Picked up a new daily driver...98 Volvo S90

The last of the rear wheel drive Volvos. Really nice ride and super clean with all the bells and whistles. It has a 2.9L 181HP all aluminum 24-valve DOHC inline six-cylinder engine. So far I am really impressed. I had the bumper covers repainted and installed a rear wing.

no, when he's ready he needs the turbo manifolds and injectors and THEN it'll surprise some people.

Imagine a volvo pulls up at a light quietly, and some punk civic's all sitting there revving and shet, and then you blip the throttle and the volvo's BOV chirps XD

Please through that Piece of **** air cleaner away and get a nice 14" round one, i guarantee the motor will run so much better without that thing choking it, that air cleaner might be ok for a 267 or something.

In a perfect world there would be no drag coefficient and honda civics would do 300mph, but then again who would want to go that fast in a tin can?

Well, the Cat is in Deep storage (almost 3 years) in NH and the bike is in a storage unit 10min up the street. The Truck and Volvo are in the lot. That air cleaner was necessary so as to not hit the hood that was until I lifted the body 3" so now I can get a larger filter. The K&N side and top feed units are nice and also look good. See pic below of this type of filter.

I highly recommend that filter over that other thing.
