Default Looking to make your car turbocharged? READ FIRST

We get a very steady flow of folks signing up here because they are interested in turbocharging their normally aspirated volvo.

The good news is, plenty of folks here have added turbochargers to their normally aspirated engines, and plenty other have installed factory turbo engines in place of their normally aspirated ones.

The other good news is that several of each example have been documented here.

The bad news is, asking people for general advice on how to do it will not yeild results as good as doing a search.

Please use our search feature here on the board, and also refer to this link:
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&l...om&btnG=Search

That will turn up a bunch of threads from this board pertaining to turbo conversion. Best of luck and feel free to post with any specific quesitons you might have.
Cheers,

I'd like to see links to documented (pics) F+Ts. That was very helpful when I started out.

Another happy +T'r.

Hey Cap'n. How about appending a list of topics they may want to search for in your thread? Also, the showroom is a great place to look as people will have their projects and go into details there.

Default apexi safc

while pulling a bmw tranny for a freind I recently found an L/N turbo in a wrecked 740. the motor looked the same as the one in my '87 240 gle. So, i said why not, and took the turbo, intercooler, mass air flow, injectors, every associated hose clamp and what have. i kick myself for not having puuled the fuel pump. oh well i have a apexi super afc from a previous project, and wanted to try and use it for fuel delivery.

has anyone here used the apexi safc??

yea, unce did with relative success until his motor departed beneath him. any more there are various similarly priced things people can get to suit their tuning needs vs the relatively feature-sparse afc (however used afc's can be had now and again for pretty cheap).

however one doesnt really need it if one gets the fuel and ignition ecus from the 700 series turbo car and adapts the ignition computer to work. (you'd basically fab up a harness for it).

the pinouts are the same for lh 2.2 and 2.4.

as for a faq, no not really, but everything you need to know is on that page. the sensors between the two cars are the same.

I checked out your site and the pictures were pretty well self-explaning. But I have on question. I want to EFI my CIS '82 240T using an '88 740 b230 manifold and all it's electronic components. But what about the mechanical injector holes in the head? Is it just a simple matter of plugging them?

Hi Bordercity
this change over might be a bit tricky -- the second temp sensor for the ECU -- there is no hole for it too, and closing off the 4 injector-holes might be tricky.
Why not mount a complete head from an B200FT, or B230FT ?
Greetings from ireland, hans

the oil feed line goes from the block (some do right under the oil pressure sender) to the top of the turbo, while the oil drain line goes from the bottom of the turbo to either a fitting/hole on t he block, or on the pan
