Rip Kit Blems

ipd's new reverse intercooler piping kit (RIP kit) reverses the routing of the induction tubing in turbo charged Volvo's from 1995-1998. ipd's kit routes the hot turbo air to the top of the intercooler and routes the cool air out the bottom. This change in routing reduces the heat that is inducted into the intercooler outlet air. Since heat rises, routing the air out the bottom of the intercooler reduces outlet temperature an average 12 degrees centigrade when measured at the throttle body inlet. The ipd RIP kit design is also 14 inches shorter than factory induction routing which results in increased throttle response and less boost lag. Made from only two tubing pieces and 5 silicone connectors the ipd kit is the easiest on market to install. Get the most from your turbo Volvo with the ipd reverse intercooler piping kit.

*We've been listening to our customers ask for more from the ipd RIP kit and now you've got it! ipd's RIP kit is now powder coated instead of brushed stainless to increase the resistance to heat soak and allow for easy cleaning and better appearance under the hood. We've added this new feature but kept the price the same without changing the quality or material of our pipes. If you want quicker throttle response and lower boost temps so you can get more power from your Volvo, ipd's RIP kit is for you. During our testing we found a 12 degree centigrade drop in charge temps and 14 inches of reduced piping length, and we were able to run an additional 3 pounds of boost without needing any changes to our tuning. Still the easiest kit available to install, just two pipes and five silicone connectors. Kit comes complete with T bolt clamps and step by step instructions.

In our last batch of RIP kits we got a few that were not cosmetically perfect. The powder coat had some light hazing in some areas and a few of the welds had some minor slag remaining. Very minor stuff, but they couldn’t be sold as new, so now’s your chance to get the best RIP kit available and save $75 bucks! Fits all 1994-1998 850, S70, V70 & C70 models.

ipd RIP kit with minor cosmetic blems, regularly $395.00, now only $320.00 while limited stock lasts!

This aluminum cross brace is made of sturdy 14 gauge boxed aluminum extrusion with reinforced laser cut steel mounting feet. For left hand drive vehicles only. Easy 30 minute installation.

(1) Not for “R” models.
NOTE: Upgrading the anti-sway bars on these models is a skill level 3 procedure. We generally recommend professional installation as it is necessary to lower the engine sub-frame and a vehicle lift makes the job easier than doing it on jack stands. Although the experienced do it yourselfer can accomplish the install, you should consult the installation instructions before attempting this job to be certain it is within your mechanical abilities.

HD Enlinks

Standard front anti-sway bar endlinks are known for their tendency to pop or click when they wear out. ipd's new heavy duty endlinks not only feature a polished ball for lower socket erosion, but also an increased rod diameter to reduce deflection under high load or when running our beefier safety anti-sway bars (12mm diameter vs. 10mm on the stock links).
