New battery, fuel- and oil filter with fresh oil are in. Car starts like it should and works fine. Fuel filter change was such a pain in the ass because banjo fittings started to leak, and leak wouldn't stop until I did put old copper rings back. New copper rings from my 50 piece sortment were too wide from touching surface. Next task was to install new wideband Bosch lsu 4.9 sensor. Old sensor stopped working last fall and Innovate showed only E8 fault code. Some times 22.4 was shown but it couldn't read any afr's right. Common issue with Innovate mtx-l.

Works and shows afr's how it should

So now there is some boost added, -18t makes 0.95 bars with additional spring and bleed. Needs +0.25bars more. It feels quicker of course, but it ain't a rocket. It needs more spring/new WG actuator.

We had some issues with my IC piping, one hose popped off three times during tune up and once when I was coming back to home. Piping is made of steel, so I will weld shoulders to joints.

I had odd lean running issue at idle and while test drive before tuneup. I used this topic -> http://www.turbobricks.org/forums/sh...d.php?t=272004
and my "tuner guy" but we didn't find anything. Car gets fuel, alot of it from fuel line, and FPR seems to work, injectors work, samw temps on each cylinder, working AMM, working harness, no leaks, only thing/parts that is changed are in last posts. After all the searching I unplugged resistor pack, since it has hi resistance injectors, and boom! 14.7 afr's. Year ago we tuned engine with bad battery, maybe the new one changed currents or voltages in critical points?

Not much have been changed since last post, now I have 1bar on clock and few odd spots on chip, but nothing majure to stop me driving the car. Car feels how it should have been from the beginning. I am not a photographer, but took some pics while enjoying how clean car feels.

Question

M90 is working well, and feels good and fast enough for me. Last week I changed oils to it, and tranny feels bit smoother now. Car has changed a bit with new front splitter, it is made of poly ethane if I remember correct. Car feels more stable at 120km/h when cross winds blow.

They are 59° North wheels D-004. 17*8.5 front/17*9.5 rear. Monday I will get some tyre on them.

I'm more of a 740 guy but there's something about a white 240. Especially this one.

Nice to hear, I was really close to get 16V 740 ten years ago, but dad bought this for me.

This project is a slowly moving one, but progress is coming in future with new engine. I am going to rebuild it with H-conrods etc. Redblock of course, b230fk squirter block. I am still making decisions with turbo that it will have, maybe s200 borq warner, that need a rebuilt kit, or something with ball bearing.

Took some rolling shots with friends.

Thank you! Bross kits were originally made from sort of plastic, but these copies that are sold nowdays are made of fiberglass. Mine has fiberglass copy parts in front that are made in Finland, skirts are genuine plastic pieces and rear part is made of broken Bross and original Volvo 240's rear valance. Front parts reguire two or few holes drilled on front fenders, but rest is bolt on.
