Sweet! Do they go on the doors or fenders?

Was it the Testarossa that had those cool mirrors mounted up high?

They are on the doors.

To keep it "original", i fabricated a mountingplate that mounts up in the original place, using the original bushings.

First i had to create the baseplate (3mm steel, i'm not about saving weight :p)


Because of the bottompart is going behind the original lower windowtrim, i made the bottom part flat.


I then testfitted the baseplate on to the door, and traced were the 28mm bushing needed to go


In went the first nut, that secures the baseplate to the car using the original nut.


The original mountingbushing, removed all the oxidation from the last 10 years or so.


the new 28mm bushing, screwed into place. ready for welding:


fits nice i think:


the mirrormounts needed a littlebit of work to make the imbusbolt sit flush with the top


FLATBLACK FOR MAXIMUM STEALTHINESS!!!



Done!!





I think i need to lower them around 20mm to get the desired look i want for them, but i'm happy with them!

Best €250,- i've spend on the 245 in the last year..

It's a Volvo! Offcours i carry tools with me.

I've been thinking this morning, this is the first year the 245 didn't break(or needed major attention) down during the Spring/Summer/Fall period.
Someday i might even call it reliable!

What are the Specs on these wheels and who makes them? I didn't think they would look good until you mounted them. Then I changed my mind.

So long time no see, time to update this thread.

Haven't found the time to start working on the 242 again. It's still being prepped for enginebay paint. And because if don't have enough projectcars, i bought myself another one!





A clean '77 265, been in storage since '92 and complete with all the parts to build it up to a functioning car again.
It's been blasted and the previous owner started with the welding. Only parts that need to be welded are:
- Both rear arches
- Left and right sills
- backside

Front is all done. Plan is to have it gutted, FIA Approved rollcage, 4 bucketseats, 5 Cilinder, Huge turbo (offcourse) and have lots of fun.
Also, i prefer the newer front / rear lights. so i might convert it.

Another major update, since our 242 is running on a Aftermarket engine management system i kept feeling my purple 245 needed a tune-up bad. But since one of the previous owners decided he would create a functioning wiringloom from a 940 and a 240 loom, i have no idea what kind of system my 245 runs. I think its LH2.4, but i'm not sure.
In short, it has the following issues:
- Wireloom is a mess under the hood, awefull to look at
- The computer has a hard time dealing with the IPD cam and 15G turbo, and i have no idea what computer it is.
- I cant program the enginemanagement

To sort all of these problems out, i needed another programmable engine management system. So i got one!
Just need time to pull out the old loom, create a new loom for the lights etc, install the motormanagement system with loom, and get it up and running, before the start of March.

you are a real LH 2.4 hater arent you no i'm kidding, programmable engine manegement is cool wen you now how to tune it. (sometink i can't )

wat kind of manegement do you going to use? the same you running on the 242?

would love to get rid of my lh 2.4. but i'm waiting on chips. maybe it's running nicer after that.

It's been a while since i updated everything online about the 242, 245, 265 and as latest addition a 244. (I've only been using my Instagram for updates, if you desire it's: @Wantikbenzo)

Quick overview on the 242:
After the sanding, welding all the small holes and painting the enginebay. The engine went back in. And we testfitted the manifold and turbo.



Then proceeded to lay some gold foil, a turbo blanket, fitted a GFB 44mm external wastegate and 800cc Deatchwerks injectors.




Bought another Volvo, now a 244 GL.
Only 70.000KM on the ODO and really clean. Hasn't seen much use after the purchase but i like the color and having a 2, 4 and 5 door 240 makes much sense :D


Got my hand on another set of Polaris wheels and powdercoated them white.


Joined the ricer-croud and went #fullretard with permanent tyre lettering: Doggo doesn't like it.


Welded a flange on the intake for the 50mm Nuke Blowoff Valve, installed a external oilcooler, the original intercooler (let's see how long it holds).



Fitted a Mishimoto fan on a new 940 radiator. Fits like a charm <3


Fitted a Setrab oilcooler:


Plenty of room with the waterpump


Winter came, so i had to park up the 245 Turbo. Found a neat little spot!


Installed DO88 waterhoses, Yoshifab Phenolic spacers and a Catchcan adapterplate.


And a catchcan:




currently i'm waiting on parts to replace my tired old M46 Gearbox in the Purple 245 for a M90 transmission. So ordered a lighter flywheel, new clutch, hydraulic system, driveshaft adapter, and a whole lot of different stuff to make the swap easy and do-able in one day.

The 242 still needs:
- Stainless exhaust with screamerpipe
- Nice interior
- V70R brakes (I've purchased them allready)
- New wheels fitted
and whole lot of small things. But we're getting there!

Curious to how you're routing your oil drain if you're willing to share those details/pictures.

Nice work as always. Hope you haven't forgotten about the 265.

About that routing, i've discussed it with a befriended Volvo-guy who sold me all the things as he switched from doing a 16v build to a M60 V8 build.

His plan was:
- AN10 from the Yoshifab adapterplate to the catchcan
- AN8 from the oilcap to the catchcan
- Route the return to the Yoshifab Adapterplate.

My "problem" is, that i really don't like the old style oilcaps (which he modified). Also it doesn't seal as good as the newer ones.

So i'm planning on welding a AN-thread on the camshaftcover, or buy a newer style oilcap with a AN plug. and run that to the Catchcan and cap the 'return' on the adapterplate off.

So i wont use the intake pressure to create a vacuum, i will vent to air using the filter on top of the catchcan.

Also, i'm not going to run a return-line from the catchcan to the adapterplate. It has to be mounted high in the enginebay for that and i really don't like the looks of that. So i'm going to empty the catchcan on a 'regular' base.

Hopefully it won't be that much, but if it's a lot i'll create a return-line.



About that 265, i haven't forgotten about it. It's just really far down the "To do list".
The current list is:
- Swap the M90 transmission in the 245.
- Swap the M46 that comes out the 245 into the 244, so that's fixed and ready to go!
- Fix the 242 and make it run.
- Start working on the 265 (welding, rollcage etc)

I've collected most of the M90-swap parts, so hopefull i can start the swap this saturday.



Things that i've ordered for the M90 swap:
- MKM Shortshifter
- New hydraulic master cylinder out of a Volvo 260
- New hydraulic slave cylinder out of a 940
- Lightend 60-2 dogdish flywheel (bought from the same guy that sold me the catchcan setup)
- New clutch out of a 940 TDIC
- New pressureplate
- New M90 Seals
- New ATF Fluid
- New braided line for hydraulic clutch
- AN3 fittings
- M12x1 fittings
- Classic-swede M90 > M47 bracket
- Retroturbo driveshaft adapter (also use it on the 242) to be used with a M47 driveshaft.

Oh, mein fehler!
Apologies as I should have further specified, the routing of the turbocharger oil drain hose through or around the tubular exhaust header.
I ask because I ran into a similar issue as a few other members and used some heat resistant materials that ended up wearing through due to vibrations, so I am just curious to how others with a top mount header are doing it. Yours looks like it would not be as angled, but still might bump into one of the runners.

That does answer some questions regarding the crankcase ventilation drain & hose routing though, so that info is still very much appreciated.
I believe there are a few vendors (I.E Yoshifab) that sell modified oil caps with AN fittings on them that seal properly, but for anyone that can TIG weld or get it done reasonably cheaply, it's down to your install preference.

I did have to make a few compromises for my catch can positioning since I was concerned about a proper drain route and a few other things, but I see no issue with what you plan to do. If you do end up collecting a good bit of oil in a short time period, adding a drain wouldn't be a large ordeal.

Haha, I have my own backlog of "To do's" so I know what you mean. Glad to know you still have plans for it, I was asking in genuine interest and some jest, I meant no harm.
Hoping the M90 and M46 installs go as planned.

Best Regards!

I am wondering why you are going the stony m90 way instead of using an omsvetsad BMX Gearbox or so..

But I'm glad to see there are some maniacs left going M90.. i have a TTV flywheel with a reinforced t5r clutch and a manthey racing clutchfacing..

/edit

whoa.. that MKM shifter is the ****.. do want !

haha, i see what you mean about the Oil-return. These are old pictures of how i made it (don't mind the black plate on top of the engine mount)





It a -AN10 returnline that feeds into a Yoshifab AN10 fitting in my engine with a 90 degree turn.

The M90 is for the 245 Turbo, which only has a few upgrades like a 15g turbo, Ipd cam and fuel chips. So 250bhp at max. And i've picked this m90 up for €300 including another complete B230FK engine. So a steal!

I dont see the need for a more expensive gearbox swap in the 245. Thats why, and i liked the M90 in de 242. Hopefully the lightend flywheel and M90 will give the 245 a much better response and agility when it comes down to cornering etc. It steers like a nimble car, but the throttle response isn't on-point.

For the 242, i see a upgrade from M90 to a BMW gearbox in the future. But first the M90 has to break and spill its gutts on the highway like my 245 did 3 years ago when i ****ed the first M46 transmission. (now on my 3rd which is also ****ed)

This was 3 years ago :P
