    Default So back in the day...

    When I joined the board I mentioned that as must be obvious from my user name, my interest is in volvos and the 7th gen gt I bought was to have something fun to drive while the wagon was off the road.

    here's some refresher pics:



    1993 volvo 940 turbo wagon, 2.5L stroker crank, forged lightened pistons and rods, dohc head, big ol' turbo, 1000cc injectors and megasquirt stand alone ems...among other things.

    About a year ago it ran, and then the exhaust valves bent

    We pulled the head, cleaned things up, put a new one on and then...nothing. the car just would NOT run. well we figured out what happened today (took about that long for fresh people with slightly more patience than I to get around to looking at it)

    It turns out the same thing that bent the valves was keeping the motor from running and it just never got discovered until now.

    cam locator pins are important mmmk?


    Turns out while running the first time the pin sheered, the exhaust cam gear turned 90degrees and bent the valves in the process but then stopped in a position where once we put the head on the cams could be timed up to what appeared to be proper timing

    Anyway, it runs now and there truely are not smileys to describe how happy I am.

    VID!!

    not that you all care, but I drove it home today under it's own power.

    horribly tuned, doesn't stall anywhere but if I were to guess there's still about 300whp left to be had on the table.

    starts idles and drives about 19/20 times without a problem, the 20th time you just gotta goose the throttle a bit.

    goofin on the highway, it does 50-80 in a smidge under 3 seconds if i put my foot in it in 3rd (1:1 ratio). I'm running 8psi right now, though it peaks 10 right before it shifts in first.

    Pics tomorrow.

    Hmm, this might give me an idea for my sis' old wagon.... its an 88' 740 i believe(??). Question: how much would this swap run (stock long block, ecu, harness, maybe 5-speed)? And yes, I'll keep it gold if I consider this haha...





    Edit: more pics pls

    well my build is a little high budget. I think I've got about 2grand in the bottom end alone.

    HOWEVER, if you wanted to do a 16v turbo conversion on an 8v motor, you I'd estimate it could be done for as little as 2grand total. The 5speed (getrag is easiest) swap adds a couple hundred more to that.

    That was the short answer, I'll give the longer one on request:-P Pics soon. btw, what are the board's rules posting video of donuts in parking lots? the volvo board demands video of shens or it didn't happen.

    LOL... yes I am. About 15 or 20 minutes out to all the state pen's. I've never had theft issues except for living in Glendale when I was at work and my car was stolen. Right at the PHX/Glendale border, so Glendale cops did shit because they said 'the car's driving in Phoenix, we have no jurisdiction'. Guess they didn't want to deal with a stolen honda with a gun in it assholes.

    _awesome_

    I've been sick more since last May than I have in the decade previous.

    Tonight, I had to thank Mars, Zeus, and Raptor Jesus that I have a propensity to collect spare parts and leave them in my car. The 4prong ford EDIS coil pack that I use for wasted spark (I'll go COP eventually of course...I'd love to have flat shift and launch control) died on me about 15miles from home.

    after 5minutes of checking all my connections by the light of my laptop screen to make sure I hadn't disconnected something important, I went rummaging thru the pile of spare parts sitting behind the driver seat and 2minutes later I was back on the road!
