Default Post your build parts

I figured this would not only be helpful to me but also to anyone else that is getting into the modification and tuning of their Volvos!
Feel free to add anything that I missed.

This could be used to list any staged/dream build, or just to let people know how you built your Volvo.

I'm sure I've missed a lot of other important components but this will do for a start.

Hopefully I'm not the only one that wants to see what sort of power and reliability people have gotten out of these things and how they went about getting to that point.

Personally I like looking through the pictures to see purdy new parts and the shops and garages where the work is performed. But, lists are ok I guess. Videos of big smokey burnouts are better.

Don't get me wrong I'm all for the pics but at this moment I just want to see what other people are running and what sort of power they are making so I can maybe figure out what I want to put in my own car.

Probably because 242GT's are increasing in value. Worth much more stock than modified. To each their own though.

Well in that case


Engine

Block: 6.0 LQ9
Head: 317s
Injectors: Like deka 80s or something
Pistons: stock
Rods: gen IV or better
Ems: Either hp tuners with a stock PCM or MS
Cam: Whatever's cheap and in stock that runs well with turbos
Crank: stock
Coil packs/plugs: stock and NGK
Turbo: A big one like a billet S480
Intake: stock
Exhaust: hooker headers mounted backwards
Intercooler: big cheap ebay
Radiator: big cheap ebay
Fuel pump: big AEM or walbros
Fuel rail:stock
Rrfpr: what? rising rate fuel pressure regulator?

Transmission/Drivetrain

Gearbox: 4L80e or a T56 if you can afford it
Clutch: Good converter or a clutch that can hold
Driveshaft: custom thick wall steel
Diff housing: stock
Diff centre: Eaton locker

Brakes/Suspension

Suspension

Springs: cut stock
Shocks: worn out old ones
Torque rods: maybe replace a bushing or two
Panhard bar: make the stock one adjustable to recenter the rear axle
Strut braces: meh
Control arms: bushings are a pain to replace just leave em worn out

Brakes

Calipers: stock

Master cylinder: stock

what about pads and fluid?


There do that and you're faster than 90% of people on here for less than some of what they spent. But don't do it to the GT. Find a rusted out 244 and run 11s.
