Cylinder walls look good. That's a plus. Still a nice crosshatch.

hahaha my goal with this car was to get it running, (eventually) put a bigger turbo on it, exhaust, suspension, and wheels and just drive it! in the mean time, after I get the 940 legal I'm fixing all the little piddly things in my jeep and selling it. then getting an xj or tj so I can still wheel but won't have a payment.

also. the Volvo runs and boosts now! got everything put back together now. gotta mess with ignition timing to get it exact (didnt have no timing light handy) but its ready! gonna see if I can throw it on the dyno at work to get a baseline and to see if its close or better than the stock 162hp rating it got from the factory. I'm excited

Xj! Xj! Xj! Xj!

Especially seeing as they're nowhere near as rusty down there.

Ignition timing is not adjustable on LH2,4 cars, at least not by turning the distributor. If it runs, the timing is correct.

yeah if its not running right, you have another issue. but if it seems to be running well, get a wideband in there and turn up the boost!

found out the oil leak is from the turbo return line at the block. the o-ring isn't torn and its pressed down in all the way. can i take some RTV and seal it up?

i also put some washers between the wastegate and the turbo. now im maxing out the stock boost gauge haha. the car was pinging REAL bad but found out the half tank of gas in there is 87. i put some octane booster and filled it up with 93 and it runs beautifully now! gonna put it on the lift tomorrow at work to hopefully RTV the return. then wash it and get better pictures!
