The thing is, it's just a pleated filter, not even a full metal spin on. The design would likely be to save servicing costs over the years but they're dearer than buying a massive metal spin on for our diesel van.

I asked at Repco here one day and had to pick up my jaw. Stupidly expensive at retail price.

I get Ryco for $28
March 30, 2015, 08:02:16 PM
Yeah I was thinkin the same. Oh well! I'm staying with the stock turbo so all should be grand. Thanks iced :-)
March 30, 2015, 07:55:18 PM
Wouldn't think so mate. Stage 1 would be fine for stock turbo. I dont regret getting mine... but if I did it over, I wouldn't get a Stage 3 again.

Just a quick one.. Would I need to upgrade my ic anytime soon? I got a stage 1 r sport, running mod x with all the bits.. Sometimes I feel it's struggling, maybe I need a higher stage ic? They're just so expensive Sad lol
March 30, 2015, 07:18:16 PM
Just have one big group buy.. Should save on shipping that way lol
March 30, 2015, 06:52:54 PM
IPD sell in lots of three dont they? Probably worth buying and stocking up.
March 30, 2015, 03:46:03 PM
Yep, just too dear to bother with unless you're stuck. I put off my oil change and waited for my IPD order to arrive.

The Ryco filter costs more than the OEM Volvo part. Why waste money on the Ryco?
March 30, 2015, 01:29:56 PM
I used Rayco since new and no issues ever. Always fits snugly.
March 30, 2015, 12:55:35 PM
I get MANN filters from IPD but you can find them on ebay too. Used them since the car was young, never an issue.

$4 and buy from ford only

Filter housing was still tight. I had to call someone to get my tools to re seat the O ring. The o ring fitted poorly when I last did the oil I just never thought it would be a problem. I've done 3 oil changes since buying the car and have only had this problem with ryco. I'll be paying the extra
March 30, 2015, 09:04:09 AM
The housing thread is known to spread when the cap is screwed in too hard. The O ring seals it, it only needs to be tight enough not to vibrate undone.

Very strange, maybe new batch is dud. I never had probs with Ryco. Only using light torque on cap.
March 30, 2015, 07:48:37 AM
Good news is i would have lost most of it on the freeway and was only 5 turns off before smelling burn't oil.
I had a few sheets of glass in the back and was driving like a grandma

O ring was blown out the cap seal, i remember thinking i should re use the old one because the ryco one wasn't very tight. Must have been slightly pinched under the cap seal when i did the oil 4500km ago. Wasn't visible because i check the oil daily and would have seen it out of the filter housing

Just a quick note to welcome crispymk2 to the Mod Squad!  Thumbsup

For those that can remember, our previous Mod from the west was Kashmir Mafia, but since he moved on from the XR5 scene some time ago it seemed an official presence was lacking for the WA member base.

crsipymk2 has been a valuable contributor to the forum for quite some time. His primary role will be to keep an eye on the WA section of the forum and update databases etc. He is also keen to organise more gatherings for local members. Good news for all.

Thanks for jumping on board Crispy!  Smiley

Hey All,

Just a quick one to let you know the downtime we've been copping lately should come to an end as of now as we've moved host.  Cool

The almighty Sir Pezzalot has moved us to a new, beefy host. For those tech inclined we're now residing in Amazon's AWS Cloud - so here we are, all modern and gone full whack cloud computing. We'll be monitoring performance over the next days, weeks and months to see how things go.  Thumbsup

Actual software / feature updates are in planning and we'll let you guys and girls know when we're going to pull the trigger on that. Worth noting that we're considering a bit of a feature clean up and re-build on a new platform that will most likely be an inclusive process from your end. We want to strip things back, do the upgrade and target great performance and usability with the community features we all really want so your feedback as we bounce through this process will be useful and sought after.

Cheers,
Miyagi
