It's been a while since my last update so i got some more stuff to post now ;)

Volvo Car Club Norway had a trackday event in August. Poor weather but we had fun





Got some nice photos from the track









I had some issues with low oilpressure in hard left turns. So i had to mount a Accusump. Found what i think i a good location. I dont bump things so im not worried about the location :P





2 September we went to Trackday at Rudskogen Raceway





Didn't go that well this time








The injectors was tested



We changed filters and gave them a good cleaning





I got myself a new engineblock, need bore, and a new CP piston.

Stay tuned

were those factory 16v pistons or did you cut them? Were factory 16v pistons cast with valve reliefs or were they machined afterwards?
If you cut them, I wonder if it slightly weakened the top of the piston enough to let a chunk go under minor detonation.

Those cars are amazing. I would be so happy to own either of them. That blue color is the best. Please do a 240 wagon next.
