my right hand side tie rod grease gland burst open today after the tyre splunked into a texas sized pothole while going at 160kmh. steering became quite heavy afterwards. i've smeared grease at the ball joint but didn't solve the problem. visual inspection shows no bending / deformity of the rods. does anybody have same problem????
also, i am thinking to remove the catalytic converter and replace it with just a piece of pipe. my lambda sensors are gone already anyway so i'll just bypass that / remove it all. will this affect combustion or fuel consumption??? any hp gain???
what is the standard boost pressure those GLTs??? i am thinking of installing those cheap japanese turbos with blowoff valve system (not variable vanes of volvos). by using low pressures (0.5 barG) it is safe to use the standard GLE pistons and could it light off with the standard GLE's bosch motoronic pumps and sparkers???
waiting replies from all volvo nuts out there
