Thanks! No idea yet what they wrote though, they were supposed to send me a copy but haven't heard anything yet and the article on their website is behind a paywall.

The Drive wrote something about it too, as did Top Gear in the Netherlands

Yeah haven't really done much to it yet. A few small things here and there but that's about it. I hope to get going again in about a month or so.

Yay a bit of progress. I've been busy with a long list of small things here and there. Been working on adding an ABS sensor and tone ring to each rear wheel for the BMW M3 abs system, more on that later. I also made a fan shroud as there is still enough space. Initially, I had the fan just tied to the radiator, but a shroud is better. If only I had the proper tools to make nice bends... Oh well, hammer it is.







And I added paddle shifters to it. I like the shifters to stay in place when you steer, like on most Italian sports cars. I used the shifters from some Maserati and modded them to fit the Volvo. They fit way better than I expected.

Spectacular! Anything less than Maserati paddle shifters wouldn't have done this build justice.

I think you'll be pleased to hear that I'm planning on running a Maxxecu Pro. You're still doing this remote tuning thing? ;) For the transmission I'm using a standalone controller from ofgear.dk

Spent some time finishing up the ABS system. The BMW M3 abs system is a proper 4 channel system, so it needs a sensor for each rear wheel. I made some tone rings on my cnc plasma cutter, zinc plated them and tack welded them directly to the CV joint. Also made a little bracket for the sensor that uses the caliper bolts to hold it in place. The front was easier as the 960 knuckles that I'm using already have a 48 teeth tone ring and a hole for the sensor. The Volvo sensor is just the wrong type, so I made a little adapter thing out of aluminium in which I glued the modified BMW sensor. They're wedged in there, the silicone/glue is just to be really sure they're not moving.











The front:

I can see how an independent Anti-Block System on a spaceship would be useful

Gimme a first start video already!!!!

You are a lunatic... in the best way possible. An M113 would have been ridiculous enough for most, but not this madman.

Did you replace the valvebody in addition to the TCU integration\bypass work for the paddle shifters?

Thanks! No need to change the valvebody. The only mod I did was drill out one of the oil passages to keep more pressure on the 3rd gear clutch pack during shifting from 3rd to 4th. The stand alone controller can't reduce power during shifting, so without that mod the rpm would flare up during the 3rd to 4th shift. It has full control over the stock valve body and torque converter etc and supports paddle shifters.

Gotcha. FYI, I installed a VRP valvebody in my E55 and it significantly reduced shift times. It changed the whole nature of the car on track, as the previous lag between gears was so severe that the rearend would start to unload during mid-turn upshifts.

@Sander: You might want to check Wesley Kagan on YT. He's doing the same sort of thing but putting it in some '73 Corvette.
