Default 940 eftersom rallybil

See page 7 for version 2.0!!!




This is a 1991 940se turbo. Yes the one with IRS. I traded a few hours of work for it. For now the irs will stay.
It will get a olive drab paintjob, skid plates, stripped interior, roll bar. I will then add a holset hy35 after a stage 0 followed by fender exhaust, brown top injectors, accumulator mod, and whatever else I feel like.

Spent some time cleaning the outside today. I pressure washed it all getting it ready for a roller paintjob.



I have to go through and un ghetto this crap that someone did.


Oh yeah....

Got this little goody today in the mail so I dont have to take the manifold off and have it machined flat.

Got a temporary tag for it. (30day). Gotta smog it then holset and go-go-go.

I drove it around a little today and it does quite well. I can drift this thing way to easy though. My 242 feels like fly paper compared. I kinda like it lol. I took it down a few dirt roads and the IRS is actually pretty good. The front is a little soft so I'll have to do something about that. Ill pick up some bucket seats for it soon that don't weigh 200lbs like these stock all power heated thingus's I do need to figure out why the turn signals don't work though.

Passed smog today. The Evap was a close call but it was all good.

Hy35w. I have a choice of 2 intercoolers too. I have a massive 4" thick core one with a ssqv welded on a tank with 3" ends. And I have a 2.5" smaller intercooler that was on the bumpercooler of the Benz.

Go big?

I think the rally boys are in the 250-300# range for front springs, and no sways.

Yeah. I was going to get some 300lb springs. October 6-7 is 50% off at ecology so ill get a solid axle and a few spare parts. I need to remove my front and (rare) rear sway. Plan is get it running good first because I have to re do the intercooler piping anyways and the exhaust..... Well that's a given.
I tried to figure out a way to run fender exhaust but it will be side piped right under the B pillar.

Hmm, Volvo truck gasket. Does the HY35W use the "not-quite-T4" Cummins flange? Are you running an adapter or a custom manifold on this beast?

It's a standard T3 flange. See pic in first post so I don't have to mill the manifold flat.
