Awesome!!!! You should ask a mod to move to the Showroom forum.

"I decided I needed a little more power."

I suppose at some point Warren Buffet said "I need a little more money".

I love this car! Watched your build/update vids on youtube...great stuff.

I was planning to swap a 4 door fox body, but watching you and Rich Halsey rekindled my interest in V8 Volvo wagons.

Can you post pics of your 3rd row and exhaust setup?

Thanks
