    I thought about plumbing them together too but I think you want all the pressure you can get. They do come with check valves but I added quick connect fittings as well.

    Curious as to the powder coating of the aftercoolers. Any benefits there over traditional cummins paint or the rustoleum canvas white. Also, will the high heat paint on the turbo and tubes keep it from going to that tan color or does it just prevents it from peeling?

    The powder coating is much nicer then the paint because it is so much smoother. Just cleans up easy and looks great. Color wise it’s the same as paint so no worries on that part. I also powder coated the cooling pipes, exhaust elbow, and anything else I had removed. It’s much easier to have it powder coated versus preping and painting on your own so that’s a bonus too.

    As far as the high heat paint, I’m still in the testing phase. Give me 3 months and I can give you a better opinion. I’m trying to be able to keep the color from turning that brown you speak of but we will see.

    You could hook it up to your pressurized water system with a remote controlled valve.

    Like Jaws said, look for the fusible link in the engine room, on the forward bulkhead.

    Do you have your rear deck off? I would love to see that.

    Yea, getting engine rebuilt. I had a coupler go bad and had to remove the back deck to pull the engine and tranny apart. I decided to change the oil pan gasket while I had the engine lifted. My mechanic said given the recent oil analysis, we should check the bearings while we were there...leading to the rebuild. I did the other side last year so at least I'll have 2 newly rebuilt engines! I'll take a picture of the back deck opening and send it to you.

    Did you have good support from Volvo?

    Not particularly, my port side crank was damaged and no oversized bearings or replacement cranks available. I ended up buying a used engine in Europe and rebuilding it instead of the original.

    We have pretty poor Volvo support in Chattanooga as well. I have two dock mates - one 460DA and a Carver 53 Voyager with Volvo's - and they don't have much luck with Volvo service. Our marina is now selling Cruisers, and the service dept claims they will get Volvo training....

    I've got a great mechanic that knows Volvos well, just had trouble getting parts.

    45 Gunner - Got back to Fort Myers yesterday from travels to Montreal, Charlotte, and Atlanta. Looking down on this 460 - is this the one you bought?

    I asked about a set figuring there must be 5-8 different models. Maybe I am way wrong and there are a bunch. Anyway it seems like a reasonable idea but I’ll just do it with a zip tie for free
