Got the IC piping all wrapped up today and ordered a air filter and overflow tank.

Alright, been battling a cold this week so not much work has been done, I got the recaros in and wired up all the sending units for my gauges. Connected to ms due to the fact I was having issues with the car stalling after a few seconds. I noticed the map sensor was reading kinda off, so I unplugged it and the car started and idled perfect. It's odd, brand new 3 bar map and it just won't read right.... Anyway I threw a stock ls1 map in it just to get the car up to temp and test everything. The adaptive idle function on ms is really cool, the car idles really well with no IAC, around 800 in neutral and 700ish in gear. And I am so supprised how well it idles and revs up with the uncapped injectors. All in all its been a slow but successful week.

Very cool stuff!!

I had uncapped Subaru injectors in my EJ22 turbo Subaru Bug, spraying ethanol. They were never a problem at all. Nice smooth idle, decent cold-start (for ethanol, especially), revved fine as far as I could tell.
Did you buy a flow-tested and matched set?

I uncapped 2 sets, threw one set in to get it running and set the parameters and had one set flowed, they went from 24lbs to 75lbs! Plenty of fuel for my goals

Well I feel like this is a sign of me getting older, I spent a day and a half specing out a washer tank that would fit in the car on the passenger side. I found a vibrant performance unit that is plug and play to the oe Volvo connector and it works great!

That's the tank. Super low profile, plug and play basically. The supplied mounting hardware actually worked with my car with no drilling! I just loosened the closest core support bolt and slid the provided bracket in place and ran the factory bolt through it! Easy as can be

Finally got the rear lines in, this is to adapt from the m10 Volvo flare at the proportioning valve to the Ford stuff, I am going to drive it and see how the bias is with the stock proportioning valve first but I have a manual valve I may install sooner then later.

Alright so we have brakes and power steering! Drove the car out of the garage and parked it on the street, towing it over to the shop tomorrow morning to build the exhaust system and make a driveshaft safety loop!!!! The interior is completely assembled, I have recaros classic C's for the front seats, driver's side needs new foam and web but for now it will work fine, finalized all the wiring, installed new head lights and non busted five panels and regged it. It's just about ready to rock!

Drove it around the block. Got it towed to the shop and now it is the quietest Volvo I've ever owned.... Wtf



Upping the spring rate by alot up front. It's wayyyy to low. Swapped out the injectors and bled the brakes. Still have alot of air in the lines I think but they work for moving it around

Here are some videos I have of the work
This is the stock ls1 injectors that were in the rail. I can't believe it even ran.....

Also I may have found the solution for the stealthiest turbo ls car ever

The exhaust looks fantastic, and thanks for the heads up on the Magnaflow muffler! I plan to blatantly copy you, except I will add a muffler up front and a 2 to1 merge, since I won't have a turbo acting as a muffler.

Yea I'm really happy with the end result on the exhaust you can't really see it from the back so that's nice adds some stealth to the project

Like the exhaust- nice tone but you know it is there. I like the whole project actually. Wheels too. Need to get some of those made!
