Yeah, the stwomboig carbs do that even on the 1969-70 B20B engines and on the 1969-72 B30A engines. They also like to idle high. Most ohv guys either went SU HS6 or HIF6 on their B20's, if they were smart. If not, they'd wind up putting Weber DGV kits on instead. Not really sure why Volvo went back to the 1969-70 carb setup in 1982.

I'd seriously consider just converting to LH 2.2. Unlike K-Jet, you don't need to modify the head, except to add the coolant temperature sensor for the FI. Suspect a weekend of work would net you a decently running B21F-LH engine with a fairly common air mass meter, instead of what originally came with that engine.


1982 242Ti - black, M46. 1985 245Ti - blue, M46. Formerly Blue245Ti, 245GT-Turbo, and, originally 242GT-Ti.
