    Fixed a common problem on 1999 and up Volvos. Surging, Hesitation, and Stalling, were common problems of a failing ETM/ETB. Volvo had 2 "Fixes" one was to replace your white labled ETM/ETB with a yellow labled one. This fixed the problem for everyone, for about 20-50,000 miles. Volvo did not cover this replacement until 2005 when a major lawsuit and bad publicity forced VCONA to issue a recall under warranty. The recall was good for 10 years or $200,000 miles. The etms were fixed under this, but Volvo did shady things such as suggest the ETM needed cleaning in order for customers cars to be driveable a little longer untill their warranty ran up, so they could charge full price($1,100) for a new unit. A site called was dedicated to this whole ETM fiasco, and out of that mess came Xemodex, a company that sells ETM's that will never fail, and are warranteed for life. Price was $500.Visit or for more info, and the actual final repair that you will need.

    This was easy as pie to install. Fitment was great. Only downside was I had to order new HID bulbs, since these headlights use a different low beam and high beam bulb. Removal of my old HID bulbs from the old headlights added maybe 5 minutes of time to the job(thats a BIG Maybe). Just waiting on the replacement HID bulbs to get here. Thank goodness most aftermarket HID systems are easy to use, and you can just swap bulbs out if you ever change to headlight housings that use a different type of bulb than what you already have.

    Had no real issue doing the install, other than a weak ground source. Could not figure out why the amp kept draining itself out and off. Took us about an hr to find the true problem. Amp is really powerfull. Came with bass knobb with light up blue led. The letters Hi-fonics light up bright led blue. I removed the bass knob from its housing and put it behind the dash, into one of the blanks for dashboard switches.

    10,000K EFX H7 HID's. These were on my 1998 S70 GLT that was totalled last August. Somehow these survived, even though the housing, and pretty much everything else related to the headlight was destroyed. One bulb was perfectly fine, and the other bulb had some damage to the wire. That damage eventually cause intermittent problems with that one light, and so I removed the malfunctioning HID and replaced it with a True 5900K Blue Halogen Bulb for the time being. Even though only 1 HID is on the car, it is still brighter than my fog lights + the other halogen 5900K bulb. Almost as bright as both of my bright lights(which are halogen).

    Top hose is very easy to install. The lower hose that goes on the drivers side (On Left Hand drive vehicles) is a P.I.T.A. to install. There are so many things in the way. It will take you forever, unless you do this everyday for a living. The hoses look good, and haven't bust yet. They survived being on my 1998 S70 GLT during the crash, with no damage. They are going on 3 years old, and no signs of fatigue or wear.

    I had the full ABM projector kit on my 1998 S70 GLT. I totalled the 1998 GLT last August. Somehow the corner lights/turn signals survived, but the projector head lights did not. I put these corner lights on instead of the stock corner lights.

    How do the new Wheels look?
  • EastsideGABoy
    Thanks man. It seemed at first that all the money i was spending was going nowhere. That all changed the day the engine came to life. You should have seen the grin on my face. She is running good now. In the process of getting to 400 HP.
