Broken Parts Are The Worst Parts - C30 Update

  • Published on Sep 20, 2019
  • I took our C30 to our friends down at Long Valley Auto Works to get our new suspension installed and to try and nail down the cause of our boost issues. Well at the time I'm writing this the car is still there, five days later. One of our new Bilstein Struts broke during installation and were back in the "waiting on parts" game.

    I also have a volvo c30 do you think it would be worth it to get a resonator delete just to make it a bit louder? What do you think of the ingen cold air intake for the c30, do you think that upgrade would be worth it?

    3 products you need, TCV, Actuator, and DPBV from Elevate. though if you overboost it'll cause a limp mode that makes the car make no more then 8psi (under 4k RPM) and nothing over 4k

      Tcv was replaced 9 months ago.

    Don't feel too bad. I spent 40+ hours cranking on my car to get it ready for a 5k mile road trip last month. At the end of my efforts, I broke a fitting on the front suspension, puked out hydraulic oil and effectively killed the car until new parts could arrive. Waiting on them still. But yeah, less chatting, more wrenching. LOL, waiting intently for your moosetech AWD conversion...

    I have owned these cars for 10years. Change the turbo control valve and the fuel pressure sensor.
    Trust me

    Look at the silver least it sheared in the garage as opposed to on the track doing 80 through a corner right?

    Next Update: *"The C30 is currently missing, it was last seen left in a bad neighborhood with the keys in the ignition and a $20 in the console - we're not sure what happened,but we're hopeful."*

      You're right. Maybe I shouldn't let Hansen test drive the C30.

    If your c30 still has the original CBV on your turbo these will sometimes stick halfway open. This can mimic a boost leak because some of the boost is escaping back to the intake. One way to know if it's the issue you can hear it is when you build up boost and snap the throttle close. You should hear a slight wooossh sound, if theres an issue no sound would

      @ShiftingLanes also the diaphragm inside could also have dried out not sealing properly or a small tear which can allow boost pressure not to buildup/escape.

      Interesting. I def get the woosh sound similar to a bov. Worth looking into.
