Dynamat is key with subs, I had a Buick where I actually bent the trunk outer skin so badly you could see the bottom reinforcements from the outside. It would flip quarters about 2 ft... Two 15" Blaupunkt Pro subs (this was in the mid 90's) in a dual bandpass box. Actually shook loose everything on the car. I'm not so loud these days haha, but I do have McIntosh and ADS amps still waiting for install in the 242...

Love it!

What do we have here?



Alpine 240.4 from the 744. Time to find it's way into the wagon so I can save the 1000w Kicker amp for something else



We have a bit of an amplifier collecting problem here

Rear wiper delete for the summer. The motor was broken anyway. Fashioned this plug out of a broken P1800 handle

Loaded up the 740 with junk from a client's property. Stopped by to see Dad and let him pick through the lumber. Always a Volvo meet at our houses!



Do I make you proud, Ken??

Need to talk to some people about a roof rack

Here in the hood, Vince the 244 came by and had a lens re-adhered



Hope you all are hanging in there!

Got the trans loose from the b230ft. It's leaking pretty profusely out of both ends. Good time to clean it up and replace some seals

Are you removing stuff with the worlds biggest torque wrench? Misusing tools, I would never do that . That trans needs a pressure washer! Good to see progress..

If I ever have a wrench that large, please stop me and ask what I'm doing It's a Harbor Freight work light. Trans is ready for loving

Haha, ok then. Unfortunately I have needed a wrench that large recently, 6 ft long pipe on my 1/2" breaker bar to remove lugnuts from my fiances car!! Who the hell cranked them on?

Trans will love a good cleaning!

Torque wrenches will be coming into play soon. Gotta put this thing back together in the 240 Getting both engines on stands and swapping the distributor is my next hurdle (after lots of pressure washing )





Been playing with the 740 airbox and some intercoolers we have around. Pretty sure we can make the airbox fit really nice and slick :D The stock intercooler will get the car running. We'll come up on an upgrade someday I'm sure

That looks like the stock intercooler I took out of my V50 T5.

Similar era! It's from a 2.0t VW/Audi product. 240 squad is at the house today



Got the B230ft/15g combo on a stand today thanks to lunchb0x and our friend Sandra



View inside the block after removing the freeze plug. Time to swap the intermediate shaft from the B21ft

Hydraulic mounts are off of the B230FT. Gave it a quick pressure wash and it's still dirty







Also have the B21FT loose from it's AW71. The factory BW55(?) is long gone.

Before:


After:






B230FT 242 at Davis 2020 is my goal. Hope TB is doing well!

I hate those hydraulic mounts, so squishy. I hated them in my Porsche also.

Bet your neighbors are wondering about all those bricks lol

Thought the motor mounts were blown. Turns out they're "luxury"

We're fortunate to be in a really friendly neighborhood



lunchb0x and I got the B21FT torn down a bit and on a stand. Working on the intermediate shaft swap. Wiring after that

Understanding neighbors are awesome, one of my neighbors is building a Factory Five Cobra in his garage so any car noises are fine with him, my other neighbor has a SRT Durango, Harleys, etc, not much bothers them either.

We live less than a mile from Skyline Drive, an SCCA hillclimb spot, and the Cobra guy wants to go for a "cruise" on it when our cars are done.

Lol, no "luxury" motor mounts allowed!!!

That's awesome Being neighborly pays off one way or another

On the luxury front: Intermediate shaft is out of the B21FT. Harness removed. Parts everywhere

Pretty sure this was the oil pressure issue in the B21FT

B230FT is apart. Time for cleanup and reassembly, then onto wiring the 240





Got this idea while watching Youtube in the garage. Just takes a 2x4, some drill bits, and spray paint

Stopped by Dad's new shop to help him remove an insanely heavy seat from a 57 Lincoln Continental
