So I pulled the engine/tranny in the $600 bluebrick that I bought last summer. I bought it for temporary transportation and because it has a M46 (ironcase) that I wanted to buy anyway. The engine will be kept as a spare and the transmission will find its way into my wagon in the next couple of months.

Much to my suprize, when I pipped the distributor off, I found the below.

Last night was a good night. :) Can't wait to put it in my wagon with the 16t.

my old b21ft running like complete CRAP @ 12psi with this very same cam made 180HP and 220TQ to the ground. the only mods where 3" exhaust, b230f intake and this cam.

very very nice score i really liked it. pretty close to the IPD turbo cam spec IIRC.

Text has failed my sarcasm... :-( I was referring to the fact that I too recently scored a free nice cam.

how does that cam compare to the IPD turbo cam? the V15 is better/more aggressive right?

It found me :)

You can buy them from http://www.enem.se/kamaxlar.asp

Though the current exchange rate makes them WAY to expensive ($517 + shipping) the IPD Turbo cam is very similar and currently a much better value.

that's so crazy. I always thought of ripping off the valve cover to see what kind of camshafts are in some volvos at the junkyard. You didn't notice that for some reason this "STOCK" turbo car was somewhat faster?

just by pulling the oil cap off you can tell if most volvo's have non stock cams as almost all newer cams that have been ground look very very different than a stock cam

Of course the car felt faster. But I attributed most of that to the m46 vs the aw71 of my wagon. It had a MBC so I knew it was pushing more boost than stock as well.
