How I installed the APC on my Volvo:

I installed the hardware components of the APC system, finished the wiring and got whole system up and running in about 4 or 5 hours.  I took pictures of the installation that may be of some help to other people with 740's for locating the hardware.  I had to defeat the over boost switch under the dashboard since it would shut off the fuel supply at around 13 psi. I did this simply by removing the hose and T fitting to the switch and installing a straight fitting.  I will be either adjusting the stock overboost switch or replacing it with a Saab overboost switch set to 18 psi.  I don't recommend running without the switch.  If a wastegate hose ever popped off, you'd see your boost pressure shoot up so fast that you'd never have time to react.  See the MVP web site for a tech tip on how to adjust your overboost switch.

After a year of operation everything works great! It should prove to be an interesting project as I progress towards getting even more power with other modifications.  I'll keep everyone posted.
