You should have a tangible seat of the pants performance gain. Long ago we put a IPD header on our 76 245 with a B20F in it and got a reasonable performance gain. That was with a 4 to one header.
1982 242 turbo. 340k miles. Good stuff and lots of rust.
1993 245 Classic, 420k 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.
