I'm not quite sure if it's an AWD 2.4 or later 2.5. Goes like stink is what I know. I apologise for considering any rear suspension system where I can just replace fewer than 8 bushings to be Torsion Beam. ?

 

Also. Pez shot.

But hey. There's more.

Gas shot. FUEL OF THE FUTURE.

850s are ace!  Well bought. AWD back end is very different (900 derived axle for starters) so it won’t be difficult to rule that out, which seems probable as they’re very rare.

I meant it could have the 2435cc engine block from the AWD model (also shared with V70, C70 and FWD 2.5T), many of which are available from Japan. Not that is has AWD system. Or it could just be the later 2522cc engine which is even more common. ?

 

It doesn't have the proper T-5 2319cc engine though.

Does it have the early version on board diagnostics thing under the bonnet?

 

Make that a huge fat yes.

 

The interior has diagnostic port hole behind the coin holder but when you remove the cover you'll be greeted with absolutely nothing. ?

That looks glorious. Lambda light on my old 850 mkII (V70) was curable by ragging the shit out of it

 

Doesn't work here I'm afraid. Lambda light is due to LPG addition.

Added Garfield. Aerosol the exhaust tip black.

if you get an ok off the svm then you must be doing something right :D

and theres all kinds of nerd and perv there (and thats just andy :D )

 

Oi! I resemble that remark!

I had a '93 2.0-20v 854GLT manual, a '96 2.5-10v 854S auto, a '96 854 T-5 SE manual (about the lowest spec I've ever seen on an 850 - cloth, keep fit windows, no aircon etc) and a '96 855TDi GLT auto.

 

The 2.5-10v was my favourite.
