As some of you may know, I got hockey930's roommate to buy sp3ak's old wagon a while back....it wasnt exactly in 'the best' condition when he bought it; no turbo on it, squirt but no spark, it was 4x4ing, etc etc. Me and the current owner have done a bit of work to it: added spark with an MSD 6AL, CFI injectors, wideband, removed the roof rack. He did a few other things too: chopped the springs (it already had bilstein HDs), had my roommate help him tune, and a few more stickers...oh yeah, he put some big ass Mickey Thompson Sportsmans on the back too, lol.

another bad pic, but shows the comparison in tire size front to back (front: 195/60-15, rear: 255/60-15):

is there still no turbo on that?

that was a bad little car when Andrew had it a while back and the turbo was running fine. It was probably one of the first meets I went to, but I was impressed none the less.

This thread realy needs an engine bay shot. The paint has been cleaned, the loose vacuum lines and wires removed(some green volvo wires replaced:)).

Also got a set of late model Eclipse seats in it- which are actualy pretty comfortable. That and the midget muffler he put on it (almost stock car quiet) make the car realy easy to ride in.

Those rear tires are pretty sweet! 12psi isn't enough to spin them over more than once or twice when cold.

Looks alot better with wheels and cut springs. How's driving around with those Mickey's?

LOL- they get flat spots on them when the car is parked. Until they warm up they rumble, also the wheel wells realy aren't wide enough for them. So they rub "slightly" when cornering. However, unless he is brake boosting them when they are dead cold- spinning isn't a possibility.

I might note that the car got sold to someone else on the board in running condition, then got broke, then got sold to who has it now... *AHEM*

Anyways I'll be the first to admit it had B.S. that needed done that I was too lazy to do. Look's good now though! The car never spun the tires when I had it (if it was dry). I could boost up 6psi on the line and dead hook on the street, lol. I do miss that car too.. my first Volvo, yay. How much boost are you running? The gauge would read 10psi when I had it, according to MegaTune/Log it was more like 8-8.5psi... And what did you do about the plumbing under the hood? I can't imagine that you left that BS rigged-up upside-down interfooler setup I had on there.

nice towery.... you just turned my whole world upside face...

Well, it's come a long way from where it was. How is the transmission holding up? And it looks like the roof-rack is gone too, niceeee. I really do miss the headlights... soo clean/clear. Too bad I felt like smashing up the front end.

Gah you shoulda seen the car when I first got it:

rolled the lip on the fenders, would fit perfectly if he had an adjustable panhard

As RvolvoR says, if the panhard was adjusted there would be no tire rub(or had stock (pronounced "LOL") springs). They only rub to the left side and only in a corner. It will roast a set of proper size tires. With the M/Ts it will push the front tires in a brake stand.

Pretty sure the owner is looking to sell the car. It is daily driven. Only thing I see that would help the car tremendously is an IAC valve(or a manual gearbox).
