Sir, you have earned my respect! Truly goes to show how far driver skill can go in a race. Seeing an expensive Japanese sports car get passed by a lil old volvo is a sure fire way to put a smile on my face, despite my JDM "fan-boiism"

What mods did you have on your Volvo in that picture?

And just for the record, hold out for a 242 or a 245. Much more fun to drive than a grandpa series.

89+ 245 with LH2.4 is pretty easy to +T and get reliable results from if you don't push the limits real hard.

My orange 242 weighs 2650 in street trim (big ass wheels) and only has about 200-220rwhp, but it's really fun to drive.

**** it...

this is one of the best posts ever...

so im drawing attention to it.


Now. to address the thread, so this lookatme post has a chance of survival.

you could weld up some oil squirtArz to the spark pluggz to give m0ar oil to seal up your piston rings while the engine is in vTech...

.

1. Pull the head off, take it to a machine shop
2. deck dat hoe
3.Install
4. Add Boost via Manual Bewst(Boost) controller till the little guy pops his Ping-Pang (detonation virginity). then back off 3-4psi.

Tarrr Darzz! (Tah Dah)
