I started out with air cooled VW and Porsche. The engine sounds like a tractor because the exhaust leaks aren't fixed. A 92 LH 2.4 engine should idle smoothly and quietly. You can add a nice bit of power with some affordable upgrades like a better cam like an A or B cam and a tune on the ignition ecu. After that if you aren't a speed demon leave it alone and it'll serve you well for a long time.

If you are going to lower the car use lowering springs or even better use what is suggested above.
1982 242 turbo. 340k miles. MVP coilovers and 3" exhaust. Flowed 405 with a V15. Cossie turbine housing with upgraded compressor housing. 90+, IPD remote oil filter. Some other goodness, too. Been lots of fun over 25 years. Restored in 2k. Now ready for a 2nd restoration.

1993 245 Classic, 430k miles, enem V15. IPD bars and chassis braces. Simons sport exhaust from Scandix. sbabbs ezk chip. Been a good road warrior. Genuine Volvo rebuilt leaky M47.
