Thumbs up New from France

Hello !
I'm MoTT, 32yo, from France and I own a 1989 Volvo 745 turbo Intercooler with the B200ET. It's a young girl with 300.000km but it's really clean, no rust at all but gearbox was scratchy as hell and the interior is in poor condition.
I joined turbobricks in 2013 when I still had my old 745 but never posted here so...

I've been lucky to find almost the same with a clean interior and a good running gearbox (195.000km) so I swapped the engine and gearbox in mine and I'm in the process of doing the same with the interior when I'll have the time.

I'd like to have a little more power (around 200hp would be cool) and I already looked at some thread to do so but I'm taking one step at a time, there are some things I must check before doing so.

Beside from that, I also own a 1990 Toyota Celica GT Four (not running at this time) and a 1980 Celica TA40.

Here's a pix of my brick :

Cheers !

Bienvenue, et le remettre en stock si c'est votre chauffeur quotidien, sinon molester et l'écraser.

Bienvenu, les messages traduis avec Google Translate sont énormes! Redwood est grognon mais il y a de bonnes resources ici et bcp de propriétaires vraiment droles.

Nice 740, do you have pics of the Celicas ?
