We had our first Cars and Coffee of the season yesterday. I need to get some more creative pictures of it, I also need to finish some swaps I have planned for it. I acquired a M90 that I need to source some parts for. I also have a 15g that I've been sitting on for a while. I'd like to get at least one of those things in for the Midsommar meet in June. I coulda gotten some work done on it today since it was rainy, but I took my older daughter to see Cinderella instead.

Anyway, here are some pictures from Saturday.



Look at that piece of **** 240 next to your car Your wagon looks awesome man!

Thanks guys. Just set an appointment for next friday to have the interior detailed. The carpets need to be cleaned and the guys I take it to even impress me how they're able to get all the nooks and cranies. Looks like the M90 swap isn't going to happen for the VCOA Midsommar meet, but I'm going to push to get the 15g on.

Been working on the engine bay off and on. Some cleaning, wire-brushing and polishing has it looking pretty fresh. It's nice just to spend a few minutes in the evening cleaning some random bit.

A few things taken care of before the VCOA Midsommar Meet. In the past couple months I've done a diff fluid service, brake fluid flush, coolant flush, and most recently this:



New OEM AC compressor. The wife preferred we have AC for the trip, since she's use to modern vehicles. Probably do the tranny fluid, since we'll be on the road for the weekend. I have some new polish and sealant to try out, but this Saturday I have an appt to take a couple of remaining dings out. We'll see if I get to the full clay bar and polish, but it's pretty much ready for the show.

Kinda bummed the M90 swap isn't ready and I haven't clocked and bracketed the 15g, but at this point it doesn't really bother me. Bite size projects are easier to do at this point in my life and the motivation to do the m90 and 15g swap is there, just have to find the time to do it right. The car is running stellar and like I said in the previous post, I've been doing some wire-brushing, cleaning and painting of engine bay stuff. Just getting things sorted well and cleaned up is pretty satisfying.

Got PDR done on a couple small dings Saturday and then on Sunday I hit it with some polish and sealant to get it ready for the VCOA Midsommar Meet this coming weekend. I'll wipe down the interior this week, but it's pretty much ready to go. Looking forward to meeting up with what looks to be a decent number of TBers.

I want one! I'm keeping an eye out for a nice 940 wagon to replace my 240 wagon.

Jeebus that thing is clean. I'm feeling woefully under-prepared for this weekend.

Looking forward to checking out that shine in person!

Thanks. It's not perfect, there are some scratches and clearcoat etching here and there, but it shines up nicely. Looking forward to checking out the 242. The meet should be a good time.

Getting close to finishing up the EGR delete and crankcase vent/catch can install.

How are you doing the EGR delete? New manifolds?

I went ahead and swapped the intake for a non-EGR one from my spare engine. I'll swap the exhaust mani when I put the 15g on. I just used an O2 sensor plug for the exhaust manifold for now. I was surprised that with a little PB blaster the EGR bits came apart pretty easily. Went ahead and did new gaskets for the TB and the intake and cleaned everything up.

Took it for a short drive and the intake-side ic pipe popped off. I'll clean the pipes up and take it for a longer drive tomorrow. Last step will be swapping in a non-EGR EZK chip.

Nice, I have the same parts, so hopefully it'll be pretty straightforward too.

This may sound a bit crazy, but use hairspray to seal your intercooler pipes. It sets up slowly and isnt as strong as glue, but I have used it quite a few times with great success.
