No, aftermarket shorty headers. I dont know if they make any power, but they are just much slimmer than the original manifolds. The originals would never fit in the car.

You can fit dual 3" over the axle, that's what I have on my 245 with Cadillac 507. ;)

So many have said it wouldn't fit and here it is, fitting.

I look forward to seeing this car completed.

I'm not a fan of V8's, mainly because they are a dime a dozen and most use pushrods, but I'd LOVE a DOHC (or hell even a SOHC) V8 in my Volvo. This is ****ing awesome.

slammed...


We drove it for the first time out of the garage today. We still have to fix a minor running problem, but I think I know what´s causing it.

That is very nice. I would love a large displacement engine in a 240, too bad it's not possible to build one in here.

So, how do you say grymt bygge in Icelandic .

Wookiepedia says:
"A hydrobooster was a starship component that could be controlled by an automatic system. Otherwise, the pilot would have to monitor it. "

But yeah I was wondering the same thing, looks cool and compact, although not much shorter than the volvo one.

Lots of big diesel trucks, and american vehicles, lots of germans like Audi for sure use hydraulic assisted brakes. Instead of vaccuum to assist the brake power, they use hydraulic pressure from the power steering pump for the assist. The Bosch system is called Hydroboost. The european cars use something similar, not sure what they call it though. Its easy to find in the junkyard. Look at chevy astro vans. Because of the tight engine compartments on those vans, they had to do something compact for the brakes.

These brakes can be VERY powerful. Like breathe on the pedal and you stop instantly.

Cool. Thanks Ken. Definitely something to keep in mind whenever that engine swap of mine comes around. Could perhaps also be useful for 240 people wishing to convert to 16v and use the stock manifold.
