No sweat. I can get them packed up nice and secured if needed.

Didn't get too much done over my long holiday break. I had to rent a uhaul to pick up all my stuff from my old shop in Walla Walla. It feels good to be moved out officially, I sure wish I had been able to enjoy that shop space more (4000 sqft and two stories, plenty of room for projects).



Got a ZZPerformance 9" filter and IAT bung for my intake, Robert (Culberro) is going to weld the bung in and shorten the intake.

In other news, I ordered an ARC 8000 switch/relay panel for my chassis wiring. I'll be using this to control starter, ignition, headlights, taillights, wipers, and misc electric functions. Probably a bit overkill, but I'm excited and it makes my life easier.

Great minds think alike. I think I could have built a similar switch panel and PDM myself, but I like the look of their switches and I'm thinking the relay panel will speed things up for me

East coast meets west coast with your two cars, both incredible builds. I would like to see them both sitting side by side by side one day Jason and Patrick..

Scored these from an older guy in N Portland. Cool guy, had tons and tons of Volvo stuff. Gonna clean them up.



Had to hack up the nice cover my friend made for my shifter hole to install the short shifter for the AR5. It feels great now.

Didn't take any pics, but I got most of the rear suspension taken out in preparation for the Kaplhenke stuff.

How much space do you have around the transmission at the closest points? Looks a bit tight.

Are you using a Ford or Chevy trans mount?

Enough room that it hasn't worried me. I didn't hammer the tunnel at all. Its using a 700r4 transmission mount and an STS T56 crossmember

I asked because I feel mine is too close, and need to break out a hammer on it. I'm just curious how close you think is going to be ok. I can't get my finger between the tunnel and the transmission, I feel that is too close.

I missed that is an auto, my comment about the Ford vs Chevy mount related to the manual trans. The Ford mount is a good bit taller.

It actually is a 5-speed manual, just uses an auto transmission mount.

As for clearance, I could get fingers between the trans and tunnel but not a whole hand.

Do you have an airhammer? I used one for an unrelated project and they are awesome, makes it much easier

I wish I had one sitting around just in-case. I think I'll need to hammer my tunnel eventually for the 3" driveshaft

They aren't too expensive if you are going to use it. I cut a wrecked Porsche 924 into pieces that would fit in a VW Caddy once (the only truck we had to take scrap), removed the rear clip first right behind the sunroof then chopped the rest of the car up. Only used the chisel bits lol.

We must have similar tastes, heres a 924 I cut up and hauled away. My friend in his Caddy even picked up some of the stuff to use for other VW projects

Had a family emergency recently and had to return home, so no progress for a while.

I've got parts just stacking up at home. A bunch of bulk wiring, H1/H4 headlights, relays, the ARC board, etc. I'm hoping to make some good progress whenever I can make it back over to the west side

Derek (Vol242vo) has returned the favor and texted me early this morning, letting me know an S60R came into the Mead Pull and Save near Spokane. I headed up there as soon as they opened and grabbed the calipers, and found a set of good Hydras on the 740t. I left a bunch of things because I'm at my parents house and didn't have the tools/time to pull everything.
