Default Volvo 740 Turbo Conversion - Street/Track Build

I guess I didn't post here previously because the quality of projects is often very high. However, some friends have convinced me to contribute to a YouTube channel so now I'm whoring it out everywhere.

I'm going to keep it short, and suggest that you watch the video for a run-down of the work done so far.

It was originally 2.0 non-turbo K-Jet. I've fitted a B230FK with LH2.4 & M90.

Nice vid (halfway through). Exhaust turned out great!

Nice! Always a joy to see more of these 7/9 sedans, generally unloved on TB. Many of your mods look darn familiar, and I'll bet that baby will scoot! Going to watch the video soon.......continue to share, these sedans are finally gaining some traction here.

Thanks. That's an underbody brace made by Viking Fabrications, here in UK.

Good stuff! I had a look at Viking performance and will probably have to buy some now

Btw, if you want a 3d printed holder for the 128x32 oled, I was planning on making one for the 7-series cluster, so it wouldn't be too much of a hassle to make a second one with the settings dialed in I'm guessing it's an arduino with a mxp pressure sensor of some sorts?

Cool, I'd be interested to see how it turns out. My current cut-out isn't particularly clean so I'm sure the printed version would be better. Yes mxp5700ap sensor.

Nice video, details your improvements quite well! I really like your exhaust work.... apparently no CAT is required in the UK, or is this an off road vehicle only? You did better than I did in tucking your exhaust higher..... my 3" DP really is too long and pushes the system too low in the forward section. I also run a 2.5" exhaust over axle and thru my TME muffler. As I drive my car daily, I added a VIBRANT resonator to remove the 4 cylinder drone at highway speeds.

Overall, impressive. Looking forward to more videos, and hopefully you can get your sheet metal restored on the 740 Hoon Saloon :-)

Nice 740. I bought Viking Performance's old 740 turbo that he modded to the max. Also looking to track it at some point. In your videos you sound Scottish, still live up here?
