Default Bamses Turbo Underpants

Hello all you there!

I was thinkin of putting up a new thread about my car, since we've found out it's got a lot more attention than expected.
The car is (or was) a basic 1986 Volvo 240 DL, all original equipped, and powered by a b200k. So this was acutally 5-6 years ago, when i finally as a 17 year oldie got my first car in my hands.
Since that, it have had 2 different 8v engines in it, and finally ended up looking like this:






And like many of you already might know, we have made a couple of vids on youtube about the car. They have got a lot of good feedback, so i'm also goin to post them here in this same topic, so you'll allways be updated in time!

Here hey come:

That car is awesome. Do you have a detailed list of what has been done to the engine and which turbo it has on it now? Any dyno sheets?

Is there something lost in translation with the whole "turbo underpants" thing?

My wife and I enjoy these videos. I think the car is super rad, and my wife thinks you're hot. It's a win-win.

"The weather is nice. It's a good day to break the car." Love it - the old Viking mentality - 'it's a good day to die!!!' And it's nice to see someone else taking things apart with vice grips and channel locks.

Welcome to the forum, thanks for posting up. I look forward to seeing more videos of your car and shenanigans.


I could really see the pain in your eyes when you thought the turbo was blown. I've been there so many times, I feel it too.

Glad to see that you got it back together and it worked for the next day at the track.

Grymt roligt att du lägger up här. Gillar videosen skarpt. Tycker att ni har sån jävla rolig stämning. Skitkul att se.

Glad to see you posting here. I love the videos, especially the fact that you guys seem to be having so much fun. Keep it up!

The sticker on his rear window translates to "Dare to say no to 16v", so probably not.
