These guys came in to get a car wash and I got them to sign off a fix-it ticket I got a few weeks ago (stereo shook loose a tail light plug). They were cool, liked the Volvo.

Good to know. I think I got lucky because these were on someone's drift car and probably wouldn't have survived too many trips to the track

Got a new ride so I can park the 740 and prep it for Davis. Not bad for $500

Sold the truck. Drove Dad's LT1 powered 245 while I swapped the turbo on the 740. Now 15G powered

Heh, yea even with an Efan, big IC, etc I don't think it will quite have the same poke. I'll let this 15g ride for a while, but I can already tell it needs just a bit more juice for me to be satisfied (inb4 koolaid man)

Pulled plugs after the 15g swap and some maintenance. Put in OEM Volvo plug at .035 gap. What do you guys usually run?

Here's how the last batch looked. I'm holding them in order, firewall to radiator -> left to right

A little rich, not uncommon.

I'm on the hunt for another plug. Been running V-power's 1 range colder, looks like they are discontinued, so I've got NGK BPR7ES's at .026"

I just run OEM and never have a problem but you're on a different level

Used to run .028 in the 242 so maybe I'll go back to that...

So the car has a "flat spot" in the boost. Pulls hard in 1st (automatic car) Spikes in second and goes flat, then builds back up before hitting third and holding strong from there on out. Also pings once or twice when you jump on it suddenly. Boost gauge incoming so I'll get a better idea of the numbers soon. Butt dyno says ~13psi when it's cool out. 940 IC is also already bought and going in eventually with 940 rad and Efan

Ping at sudden onset of boost is a 2.4 thing. Chips from tlao resolve that.

Flat spot... Boost doesn't build flat spot or boost builds but car doesn't go?

Ohhhh. Better get me some of them chips then.

The boost spikes when it hits 2nd gear, drops a few psi immediately and then builds back up through 2nd gear, stays constant after the shift into 3rd. The wastegate bracket is definitely of the home made variety, but I'm pretty sure it isn't bending.

What pressure is the actuator? Running an MBC or just gate pressure?
