Default I was too legit. Too legit to quit.

The 740 has been such a good car to me over these last 4 years. For $1200 this car still rocks and has cold A/C. I thought it deserved some love, so we're back.

Here are some current pics until I move pictures from photo-suckit






Car is still running. Updates on last page.
Current setup:
1990 740 Turbo
Stock engine/AC/AW-71 trans/IC/rear end
Phenolic intake mani spacers
Modded airbox
240T copper rad
E-fan
15G
T5 injectors
MBC @~12psi
IPD/TME cat-back
Azev Type A's (5x108 17x8.5 front 17x9.5 rear)
Stock springs cut waaay too much
IPD upper/lower brace & front/rear sways
SuperPro poly bushings up front
#hella beat in the trunk
Red light killa



The system:
-Alpine CDE-147BT head unit.
-Rockford Fosgate Punch 6.5" components in the front doors.
-Rockford Fosgate Punch 5.5" components in the rear doors.
-2 12" RE Audio SX Series subs.
-Kicker DX1000.1 running the subs.
-Alpine 240.4 running the doors.
-Box designed and built by Kerry from Modesto. Tuned to ~35hz.
-Stock Volvo 100amp alternator and new Volvo battery. Big three.
-Nvx and GT Mat sound deadening in the entire trunk, rear shelf, and rear seat.

They're 5x108. This is Modesto Jason, new account. I need help finding a correct brake booster for this car. If anyone sees this and has one, let me know!

Captain Woosh's old car. It seemed like he was picking up enthusiasm for it again there for a bit. I guess it waned. Is king kong still in the trunk?

Oh, hi Jason!

I have a 940 parts car. I don't know if the boosters are the same.

215/45s up front. 225/45s on the rear. Test fit. They are smooth compared to my titans.

King Kong is still in the trunk. Needs an update but you guys know the $$ train doesn't come by too often.

Are they polished and dull or just dirty silver? They don't look very good on that. Maybe it's just the weird angle and the kink in my neck from trying to look at it.

They're dirty. Literally went from his garage to the tire shop. I honestly don't know if they're aluminum or something special, but a polish is coming on Sunday. Any suggestions?

So they are polished, not painted?

You should have your dad put a fresh coat of proper wheel silver paint on them.

They look best in silver. Polished is kind of 90's fad ugly. 90's is okay, but more OEM style 90's. (That's makes almost no sense. )

Definitely going polished

Edit: Looking at them this morning...the dull silver looks really "race car" and I kinda like it

No more rubbing thanks to Mr. Dremel.



Rears fit okay



9.5 Rears don't look as beefy as I expected.

They look better in black

Nice car! You're never really out of the volvo game, just long breaks.

Get 255 PSSs in the rear and they will stop looking not-beefy.

Nice car.

Car is sitting all right. Need to learn me some springs and get the springs, shocks, and struts replaced.



Scored some interesting speakers at Pick n Pull. In a 740 wagon. Found a matching pair






All photos shot with a potato for your viewing pleasure. Can someone recommend me a decent, inexpensive camera with some quality?

An old Canon Powershot. The slim ones are compact and nice.

Really loving the wheels. Did Mr. Dremel cut out the wheel liner in the front?

Mr. Dremel trimmed the wheel liner, and Mr. Hammer tuned up the metal inside the fender. Still a little rub in the left front over bumps in corners.

Can any of you pros that have lowered 740s suggest to me springs, strut inserts, and shocks for a ride height like this? On a '90 with ABS I'd probably have to send my fronts in to have coilovers made if I went that route, right?

Cool car and wheels. I like it. Don't paint the wheels black. Any inside or engine photos?

I am a classic TB'er. Been around since '03, New account. Just keep yourself out from under the car and it's a safe enough gamble. Got all the IPD bits on the car (using jack stands even!)
