Yey welcome to germany !

Where exactly do you live? And yes: cars pre 10/89 have it a hellüfa lot easier cause they dont need to match any €2 exhaust norms... You lucky one... ;)

Thanks! I live near Trier, on the border with Luxembourg.

That's good news then . Does that also mean that it doesn't need a catalytic converter?

Hey! Good luck with the legalizational Tuv'ness!!

Just a quicky... Would it not be easyer to just weld the V-band on the turbo housing? Or is it just another thing that would not be legal in Deutschland?

Nope.. Thats just for reselling purpose after getting Tuev.. Besides that the bolts would not fit the vband clamp.

Wait, what? I have a 1989 740 b234f (stock daily driver) and then a 1991 740 b234ft (project car) that i'm going to try to get through TÜV. You saying it would be easier to transplant the b234ft motor into the stock 1989 than get TÜV for the 1991?

Guess it's getting time to open my own project thread :-)
Short story, from Florida, moved to Chemnitz some years ago and this summer I got around to importing my old project car out of the US.

Aber wegen der Hauptuntersuchung, I know the guys that run the local DEKRA, so I'll just wait and see. Worst case scenario I'll end up swapping motors, but the 1991 is a sedan, and the 1989 a wagon

Great job on the welding. That downpipe looks really great.

Great vid too! Your engine looks amazing.
Too bad the exhaust is leaking. I hope you can fix it soon, so you can get the TüV approval.

It sounds like it's really hard to get an approval for a modified car in Germany.
I hope i'll have more luck with the RDW when i need to get my engine swap approved.

Thx... i really appreciate your comment Even more from one guy out of the B234FT Brotherhood ;)

I don't know why this bitch is leaking.. the 8v gaskets are new and the 16v gaskets haven't been touched at all along the progress.. dammit..

And yes.. it is really hard to do such things here in germany unless you don't have a pile of money you can throw with :D And you need to know "guys" who know "guys"

Wow, in Hungary we always think how easy it is for germans to modify the hell out of their cars and still get a legit Tüv and every mod in the cars documents. So it does not really true unless you have a **** ton of money and/or good contacts.

But what really helps us, is the old german typenschein, maybe before '90?
You can write some crazy bull**** into that paper (still needs good contacts) and the hungarian Tüv guys won't even bat an eye if there is a VR6 engine in an mk1 Caddy with "18 porsche rims and BIG brakes...

And thats the Deal.. pre 10/89 and no one has a ****ing problem.. i have a T3 Synchro with a 4.2 quattro V8 here around in town fully tüved and stuff... everything is possible.. but you just cant simply stick a huge Holset on your Volvo, cut a penislike hole in your hood and drive around like the Murricaners can ;)
