No, ARP's don't ruin Volvo heads. Volvo even used 12.9 non-stretch head bolts on the early B21s and B23s. ARP bolts are nothing but 12.9s with slightly narrower manufacturing tolerances.

More like northern Europe, somewhere in the EU. More specifically Örebro, Närke, Sweden. Owner lives in Kumla.

I don't know John, Volvo specifies that 531 + VX3 gives a 20hp increase over 530 + M on a B230F. That's almost 15% and I find it hard to believe a rather tame cam will do that much.

Well, the M47 was standard equipment for the 240 GL in 1983 and the 240 didn't get an electric speedo until 1986 so they did exist for 3 years, but aren't very common. I do not know, however, if they...

I'd rather have the M47 if I were you. M47 is shorter, lighter, has pretty much the same ratios and no wiring needed. Kind of tough to find one that has the hole for a speedo cable though.
