No Volvo updates so far. However I do have some exciting other news. Just finished doing some street tuning on my Fairmont. Thursday I found that the car had no compression in number 5 and I pulled the head and found that a bolt had fallen in the intake and punched a hole in the piston and destroyed the head. So I grabbed another cylinder head and over nighted a used rod and piston from a flat top 5.3 and slammed it in on Saturday and had it running that evening. Here is the final look of the car.

1979 Volvo 244DL 6.0/4l80e,8.8,Ms3x goldbox ecu and Mircrosquirt tcu, GTX4202r, 228/230cam, tbss intake, 11.4@123mph 9psi
1991 Volvo 245, Efan conversion, tcam, 4.10s, Aw71L
1982 Ford Fairmont Futura, 4.8/th400, 8.8, mircrosquirt, 7875 turbo, 228/230 cam, Project Cheap Thrills
