Do you have afr gauge? I'm eager to hear how that bsr chip is made, and how well it works. Clean Ride, I like it

I used three oil cooler´s for the automatic transmission but over heating was never really a problem, it is the temperature of friction surfaces that gets critical even when transmission fluid is 80 centigrade.
That oil cooler at the picture was a original extra option, for pulling caravans, there is also another extra option, a thermostat that allows transmission fluid reach appropriate operating temperature during cold weather and winters.

No i don't have a afr gaunge. I'm so old scool that i look at the elektrod on the spark pluggs how it runs.

A'm very pleased with the BSR fuelchip. How it's made i don't know, but it works realy fine.

Thanks! Glad you like it!

Okey! No i don't think mine is overheating either, the ATF don't smell burnt.

Yes it's the oilcooler for pulling caravans. Its seems to do its job.

So there was a thermostat kit as well? That i didn't know. Mine are in line so the oil first come in to the extra oilcooler then in the stock cooler, so it dont run to cold here in cold Sweden!

I recommend you leave them be. That may be too much white. ;)

Looks nice, though! I wish we got the late model 940's over here.

The car looks super clean as is ...if you go down the white rim road you´ll turn it into a "Korv Kiosk" curb crawler special, but hey it´s your car ...you do whatever you like to it.

Finely my A-kam came with the mail today, it has been lost for more than a week.

Probebly won't give more than max 5hp more than original T-kam, but a wider register.

Very nice wagon. I like all the tasteful upgrades. What years did the 940s get body colored bumpers and mirrors over there?

Be careful when cleaning that ITG filter. Years ago I had one installed in my BMW, and it completely disintegrated when I used the recommended cleaner!

I like a cam that give me torqe over widest register possible and don't loose to much att the bottom. Unfortunet the VX3 looses little to much at the bottom. The VX is much better but very rare to find.

Thank you so much! Very happy to heare that!

The 944 has colored bumpers from 1991 if they have metallic paintjob. From 1995 all 940 got it.

Yes i have read that it is a bit fragile, so i take it very easy.

VX was a tuning-cam and was not in any machine original. If you bought the 531 as a tuning part the VX was in it.

After much thoughts i have decided to ceep the T-cam. 99% of my driving is to just drive around slowly in the city or
on the highway in highway speed. I don't want to put more torqe on the AW71 then i allready does. I'm going to uppgrade
the chassi more then i allready done instead.
