Better to return the engine back to standard and go from there - remove dump valve, refit standard head, standard interoooler etc.
The 2.5T is a very robust engine & turbo in standard form as many Volvo owners will testify.

i have put it all together and ther seems to be a problem the cam shaft pully seems to have spun on the inlet and exhaust cams so there is no interfirance between the piston and valves and she still wont start after spending 4 hours on the phone to many ford dealers i was told that they do not rebuild this motor they just fit a new one at a cost of my sole in this life and the nxt not satisfied at this i spent even morew time on the phone to be told that there is a tool that you can buy to aligne the cam pullys to the shaft result it is a fortune to buy
but im looking at 4-8 weeks for delivery can any body advise me of any way that i can time the pullys to the shafts without this tool i know where the timing marks are to aligne the two together but the one on the shaft is covered when the pully is fitted and the exhaust pully needs to be ste to 15degree retarded when fitted and the inlet needs to be fitted at 25degree retarded now with out the tool im in need of some ideas as to how to do it acuratley any surgestion here are a couple of pics of the car befor she died and a pic of what remains of the turbo cartridge i will post pics of the new bits and peices once i get her running again
Hi and welcome to the forum,
you have one nice motor their mate,
and its a shame about the problems your facing,
i have a foucs diesel haynes manual and it shows images and ifo for changing the timing belt and other cogs etc.
the haynes manual explains that you can use certain sized drill bits to lock the cogs in to location before replacing the chain or belt.
they tell you what size and where to put it so it may be worth the £12 investment in purchasing a haynes manual for the motor.
Not what you're looking for?
