Default 1983 Volvo 244 Turbo (B21ETL?)

Hello everyone, new here and i wanted to introduce myself as an owner of a 1983 Volvo 244 Turbo B21ET bought one year ago. It has 173 000 Km.
I have in mind for this car to stay as original as possible (no permanent changes), but, if possible, the closest of a B21ETL, without a water injection.

Here some pics >






Regards, Joe

Looks like a very well kept car in beautiful condition.

Hehe, how are u ?
It is an introduction to Grupp A > https://fr.scribd.com/doc/22297996/b...ons-for-B21ETL
I have the #405 head with an A camshaft. I need a DO88 Grupp A IC and maybe a real Grupp A Turbo that i can found in Belgium thru GRC Sport.

......and i need money....

I run a flowed 405 head on my B21FT. It uses the enem V15 cam. For a low cost intercooler use an Isuzu NPR truck intercooler. Get the largest one. Use a couple of spacer blocks to bring it up a couple of inches and it works with the stock brackets.

Never heard about the V15 cam...what is it ? Heard about the IPD Turbo and the A or K which is a good option.
How many hp u get with your settings ?
I'd like something around 200 - 220Hp with max 0.82bars/12PSI.

Thx for the ISUZU intercooler advice.

Enem has been making high performance cams for Volvos and other makes for many years. I use the V15 turbo and n/a cams in both of my cars. The cam adds a good amount of power and the engine loves to make it. The V15 is the mild street performance cam and makes a lot of torque. https://enem.se/ib.asp
I make about 200-210hp at the flywheel with my turbo car. You definitely want to use an intercooler to make that level of power.

Alright, i see. Thanks for the link !

200-210hp at the flywheel is good !

I didn't have the entire list of camshaft specs, just some standards one, IPD and couple of Grp.A, but yesterday i found this, which is perfect > Turbobricks Cam Specs

Anyway, i started with chassis and some BNE Dynamics rear axle spherical bearing (i love 'em) and strut mounts >
