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.
