So this whole build started out with me needing another car for my girlfriend, i had just bought a v70 xc that was in extremely good shape. Obviously i was going to buy her a Volvo 240. I stumbled across this diamond in the rough.




Well i got it for the total cost of 643 dollars with new plates and everything. and she drove it in the hot Sacramento sun for 3 weeks before she wanted out of it. No AC is unacceptable for a girl these days! So i gave her my v70 i hated that car, abs modules going out, blew the head gasket, just alot of work. so i started getting into the 240, i couldnt contain myself.



I had the pegasus from my old 245, they looked great on the white sedan!







First off i swapped in a Electric fan, IPD sways, Adjustable torque rods/Panhard rod. Gt upper strut plates, diesel front springs wagon rear springs. bilstien touring shocks up front. Heavy dutys in the rear.





Then i got a engine, tranny, turbo, a crap load of steel braided lines, Full LH2.4 harness and chippable computers.







So as the car sits right now it has a Super lowmileage 1993 AW71 and B230FT, it has a chinabay .50/.63 turbo with a stock garrett wastegate (that isnt working worth a damn right now for some reason) it has the full LH2.4 harness swap in it, 850 t-5 injectors, Homebrew 3.5 inch downpipe with a shortened wastegate arm so it opens extremely fast. it has a relocated filter, am using the 93+ water cooled oil cooler, and going to also run a air cooler too.







Now with 91+ power steering





Interior work is becoming a huge focus as when this car is finished it will be my daily driver.

Old



New



as it sits now, its running i am still working out bugs. got the pegs on my 944, now im looking for some tethys. Going to post pics of the actual swap in a little bit.



Here they are!


















the big guy in the pictures mainly operated the hoist. it was a real struggle to work with someone who has never touched a car before.

Its coming together really well. I am very happy with it. I am going to be ordering injectors for it soon for my e85 swap . 5 speed is going in on friday. Then I am installing a new oil pan and gasket as long as throwing in a new rear main seal due to the car leaking like a sivv.

More power if tuned for it, cooler running and cheaper. Plus it smells like corn!

This pull was. Spike at 15psi dropped to about 13ish with a plugged up stock cat converter. And a leaking divertervalve and aw71. Pretty darn good if you can't read it it's 209whp and 235torque

Well here's a list of parts coming in the mail for it.
Header
38mm tial
Just got my ssqv today.

And I am getting a intake manifold made as we speak for it I am just contemplating on weather to use a q45 throttle body or a 960 throttle body. I am going to modify them to be able to use the kick down cable.

Also I have a full 3 inch exhaust that goes all the way out the back strait piped that is gonna sound meannnn.

Looking great! Those are the wheels that you're selling, eh? Too bad I don't have the cash for them now.

Yep that's them.

Forgot to update. Best dyno results I got was 269whp and 289 torque! That was before this happened






Still have to throw the custom intake manifold on. I am shooting for 300whp before 2012 and I'm getting.g very very close
