New rear end gears. Replaced the stock 2.73's for 4.10's and a tru-trac locker. It barks the tires from 1-2 now. Now i have to spend some time bedding them but the roll ons ive done show a major improvement in get up and go from a dig. Had a short circuit in the fuel wiring today, im going to have to find that. Ive been thinking of going MS on it for better throttle response. Car has 5,600 miles on it now and im daily driving it more and more.
I won best modified Volvo at the Swedish car day a couple years ago.

Difficult to see but after the oil line to the turbo cracked while heading north on a Make a Wish charity run i decided to go with a remote oil filter setup and a braided line to the turbo.

Nice job, I haven't seen a car that confusing to so many people in quite a while! I love it, hope its fast. Kind of the opposite of our our LS swaps, I love a car that hurts my brain for a minute. Very cool

Its quick, obviously not as quick as a V8 but 18psi will set me right back in the seat and make me giggle. It's fun to watch people at car shows try and wrap their head around it. Most people really think its neat because it is so vastly different. I dyno'd my wagon years ago and it made 205/235 at the wheels. Since the compressor swap and redo of everything im going to guess is about 220, im hoping the Nathan intake and cam push it over 250.

A big thank you to Sbabbs for the NIW intake manifold. Luckily the tb had boss's to drill and tap for the old school tps unit. Still running LH 2.4 and the newer 850 style wont work properly.

Been a while since i've been around. Lack of a computer and no ambition to figure it out from my schmell phone. Got the intake finished up, car is such a joy to drive and the top end is more spirited with the gears and easier breathing. The GTP injectors need to go, they flow way too much, idle is 20psi and wide open is still far too rich. Any suggestions on smaller injectors would be appreciated.

On with the show.



Added a catch can, this was designed for a Lotus Esprit, i cut it in half and made it work for my setup

Ran into some electrical gremlins while driving one day, car started running super rich, i couldn't figure out why. It eventually died and i rolled into a parking lot. I kept hearing a clicking sound and determined it was the injectors. Some how the wires under the fender had abraded and the injectors were shorting to ground causing them to misfire. So one weekend i decided it was time to cut and splice every fricken wire and shorten it all up. To this point it was all stock length LH2.4 wiring, which is significantly longer than i needed. The first photo is from when i built the car, shortly after removing the entire harness from the donor wagon.















Project took a couple days working on it here and there, maybe 6-7 hours and quite a lot of soldering and heat shrink. It's good to go now, no more crap 1990 connectors and no more wires hidden under the massive fenders to slide around and short circuit. I spent quite a lot of time trying to keep everything orderly and look professional. Much easier to service the computers now, and i don't drive the car in the rain unless i get caught up in it.

Some more upgrades to the Nova, Sick of the stock single piston iron calipers so i upgraded to the Two pot Willwood aluminum calipers, quick and easy install, less than 30 minutes a side.













My gf was walking through a antiques shop in NH and turned the corner to find this gem. I told her she should have bought a lottery ticket. Gotta be 1 in a billion chance.

More progress this week with tubular upper and lower A Arms along with rubber motor mounts in place of the Poly urathane units that i installed when i built the car. It gets old at stop signs when every bit of metal in the ol' girl starts rattling heavy.

Probably because i was vacant for quite a few years doing everything else, mostly flying FPV drones and just enjoying this as my summer commuter car. Then i went and got too spirited and crashed into a curb, hence the upgrading of front end components and the scuffing on the K member.

I'm glad you like, thank you.

Update on the rubber engine mounts... Car is so much nicer sitting at a stop sign or redlight now, i can actually see what's behind me in the rear view mirror. All that's left on the list is the sub-frame bushings.

If anyone on here is interested in buying this car, please send me a dm and we can discuss the details. Haven't been driving it much and would like to see it off to someone who will enjoy it. Cheers!
