While I wish I had some fail to post...... I don't! The car is running amazing. Been through 2 sets of tires with it. No coolant pushing and no issues. I've been thrashing on it with no wastegate line even hooked up. Sits rock solid at about 13psi and just loves the abuse! Here's a pic of it cleaned up next to my neighbors hellcat. Having driven both I do honestly thing the Volvo delivers more smiles per gallon just because it feels so wrong

I kinda like the wheels. I'd like them on this car even more if you adapted some Volvo dog dish hubcaps!

Ended up making my way to ojai last night in the car, about a 250 mile drive. Spent alot of time learning and tuning on the way. Managed to get this thing to hit 22mpg!!! Oh did I mention I converted it to flex fuel! So far it's sitting at about e60

Whoa, that's cool. Does MS have the ability to blend a gasoline map with an e85 map based on the flex sensor?

Yep, power and ground to the sensor and the reference wire, then just enable flex. The pre programmed settings are pretty damn good

Yea I currently have microsquirt and ms3x on two ls turbo cars and I will say the the ms3x is soooo much more user friendly and much more driveable. Just got back from the road trip. Logged a total of 600 miles on the car, oh did I mention it did it on the drag radials? Lol not the best thing for the tight corners but it was alot of fun nonetheless

Took the car to the Davis Volvo meet this weekend. After letting people beat the crap out of the car for 2 days I took it to the track. On 9ish psi with very conservative timing, it went a 11.4 at 123. Got thrown out, went back to the hotel, beat the **** out of it even more and then drove home.

They worked great, and I mean as you can tell by the video, I didn't launch it hard at all. Just a nice leisurely drive down the drag strip
