Default LaSSiss - 1981 242DL

Hi,

I want to make a small thread about my car. I look at this as an opportunity to improve my English and share my Volvo project. The car, a 1981 242 DL I bought in Sweden spring 2015, Only 1 owner before me.









Since I picked up the car in Sweden, it had to pas customs and registered in Norway. It also had to be controlled




I got it registered and started modifying











Motor, A B21a is not exactly exciting. This of course had to be replaced in favor of a turbo engine





What's happening first? Well, I'm stopped at technical control and they're not happy when the car is not approved with the modifications






I knew I was not completely satisfied with the appearance of the car. Something had to be done

I bought an armrest from here, as these were not delivered in Norway






I met a good friend who has lived a few years in Portland Oregon. He brought a car home to Norway







I bought one set of Silver Gray Compomotive, thought these were much better on my car.






The car was re-approved and approved with all modifications.

We went to a local volvo meeting

Me and my friend went on a holiday trip with our cars. We have a beautiful country













The engine will depart for more modification and dyno







Stock B204 parts and custom adapter for external wg

Thanks for sharing! The first wheels are my favorites. I love that dish. Maybe they aren't as wide as the compomotives? I'm sure you need all the help from wide tires to put that power down.

Yes i agree about the deep dish, but the rim is to common here, and the rims dont fit because of the big brakes that ive got. The ocean rim is 8,5x18 ET 6. New Compomotive is 9x18 ET15, motorsport wheels so i have good clearence for brakes

Nice car! I like how you reupholstered the seats and I am very jealous of your transmission. Keep posting, we need more of this.

Yesterday there was sun and the roads dried up, so i had to take a ride with the car. They use so much salt here in winter so i dont want to drive to much in it.

As I get older I embrace the beige/warm colors. Is your car color 146? Can't quite read the ID plate.
Looks like a good solid car. I always liked the brown salt/pepper tweed interior in the 82/83 cars here.
I had one wagon with it in blue with a B21A. Talk about slow.

That is some amazing work and beautiful sights in your photos.

What are those items installed into cylinders on the exhaust side?
How many kg's was the trailer used to tow the 242 with the V70?

Thank you

Its for coolant. Pre owner was going to use electric waterpump, i removed the piping and went back to original waterpump. V70 is allowed to pull 1800kg’s, 242 is 1250 ish and trailer is 580, so about 30kg overload ;)
