I'm kind of tempted to buy a new m47 from volvo and get that lifetime warranty on it.

Who's that fat ugly piece of **** poking around the engine?

That 242 is so sweet!

Oh, I think on the whole, your summer has been way more productive than mine. Can't wait to see your wagon with the new shine.

Sooo, Harlard made me a deal I could not resist. Plus-T really wasn't on my radar, but in a moment of weakness (and a bit of my Hurricane Irma bonus) I pulled the trigger. Should be able to get most of the goodies I need in one stop. Learning a lot hanging out with a TB veteran.

Nice score!

Too bad the 373's don't have a tone ring for your 86+ speedo.

That axle is the reason I bought the wagon in the first place. No crush sleeve to deform. Guess what the 242 did...

Also, Carl will like the 3.31 much better with the turbo. Loading up the engine more yoelds more wheel torque earlier in the rev band.

It'll never spool.

Trust me mine doesn't with 354's & 26" wheels....

On the up side I can get ~30mpg obeying the speed limits.

Mine hits full 22 psi peak at 2800 in 4th gear, but only at 5000 in first. All you need is some decent wastegate signaling.

Gotta wipe your cheeks...



So, I felt bad for Harlard who was trying to clean out his garage. Took off my uber-rare "Volvo in Sports" limited-edition exhaust and am fitting his TME thing or whatever it's called.

In the crate. Gathering up a few more things. Hope to take it up to Seattle next weekend. Got some visitors coming for Thanksgiving. Be nice to have the car. Maybe dig in after that. Davis will be here before we know it.
