Passed smog with really good numbers. Gotta do something about the one tire fire now that it runs pretty strong

So....T5 injectors ARE apparently plug and play because I put a set in and the car runs Already has a 3.0 bar FPR


Engine is pretty tired and leaky. Trying to find a low-mileage bottom end before Davis

Been happy with the rebuilt 15g. Think the stock turbo was blown?

More Davis prep. 1/2 off weekend at pick n pull so I'm swapping my hydraulic mounts for the old style ones and replacing a control arm that got tweaked by a pothole a while back. A little rain doesn't stop a TB'er

Put the E-fan setup from my 242 in for Davis. Need to clean up and paint the radiator top and IC pipes once I R&D the fan for a couple days and test it out Excited for Davis if y'all can't tell

The effect would be less caster angle on the passenger side resulting in less grip in tight left turns. It also has adverse effect on straightline stability.
Easy fix: just jack up the car, maybe remove s/bar droplink, remove topmount nuts, somehow pull that strut downward, spin topmount around 180degr, put nuts back on, etc. Done.

Other then that: nice car!

You may indeed be right...I measured with a tram bar previously and the passenger side is indeed tweaked, but I will flip the mount around and see if the 'tweak' goes away. Definitely not above making a simple mistake like that. Thanks for the sharp eye! I'll post results in a few days...the car is going up on jack stands for a rear main seal, wheel polishing, and some suspension correction

no worries, i have seen it before. I think it is a bit of a design error. Volvo should have designed that topmount so it would have 3 bolts in a triangle configuration. That way it would only be possible to install that topmount in 1 correct orientation.
Let us know if you can feel the difference.

I will definitely report back with my findings

Time for rear main, distributor rebuild, motor mounts, tranny mount, other Davis prep...

So I scrapped the 22's my friend gave me, but saved the center caps and....they fit the Azevs! I'm grinding the STANCE logo off for sure. Also gives me an excuse to play with my new bench grinder Going to see if someone can make me some Volvo or Azev logos Giving my back a break today so I started messing with a little metal polish on the wheels and caps

Instead of methanol or nitrous injection, I decided to go with Premium malt liquor instead. Will report back with power gains

Hmm, sounds strangely familiar...

Looks like I have a second driver for Sunday so your car will have some company.

No worries Gary, we'll do a track night up there sometime

Engine is back together. Testing for leaks before I button everything up



Used this paint for the engine bay stuff. I like it so far. Looks OEM but has a tiny bit of flake in it so it looks nice in the sun.
