Hello, are there any threads or topics about replacing the stock ST225 inlet camshaft with the one from RS ?

Any help or feedback from users that did it?

Thank you,
Stavros

I wanted to change my clutch set up but my RS clutch was like brand new and i didn't want to waste it, so i decided to change only the flywheel. I received today this masterpiece from TTV Racing. It is a single mass flywheel about 4,5kg less than the standard dual mass.

I will post pictures of instalation soon..

The exhaust studs that Anembo advertised as a heavy duty stud kit, broke in 10 months of use...
I realised that 2 of them were cut as I had a strange noise from exhaust manifold..

I decided to buy stronger ones 14.9 tensile with special heat resistance washers and nuts. It also requires a new exhaust manifold flange again..

Lets hope that will last longer.

They decide to replace the thermostat and they sent me a new one.
So the problem solved.

I also got this engine mount for 90€ euro. Ford sells it 260€.

The thermostat loses coolant fluid from the aluminium insert of the upper bolt.. The store i bought it said that there is no warranty as i dont have Volvo...and i installed it on a Ford..

I call that fraud !!! It is 100% a Volvo engine

The RS oil cooler is bigger than the ST225 and helps the oil to run in lower temperatures.
The ford genuine part is from Volvo, the brand is Behr and costs about 350€ .. So i order one from Behr that costs less than half of the price. It is exactly the same.

A few hours ago i received this new thermostat with housing. It was in the 1/4 of the genuine ford price and i thought that might be a chinese crap BUT.. It's seems like a very good quality product and it is made in Sweden!
