    Be sure to buy a few fuel filters (pri & sec). That crap in the tank/Fuel lines will get trapped and you might end up with fuel starvation.

    Speed sensors is one thing the other you have small black box attached to the crossmember under the cab. This thing is sensing G forces lateral (across the frame). Sometime it goes weird. And really hard to check and diagnose.

    Do your self a favour and always use oem volvo filters and 7 micron filter i davco. Change davco every 10k miles and add fuel additive every time you buy fuel. Im doing it that way and my last volvo i tradad in with 1.2 milion miles never changed a injector and current one has 562 k didnt touch injectors yet. This engines are so sensitive with their fuel.

    Dont forget that this places installing the chipest stuff they get their hands on unless you ask for better stuff but you have to pay upcharge. Remember that grease and good filters are cheap compare to repairs.
