K&N filter because race car.. oh wait no because of LPG instalation guy told me to mod the airbox to avoid ram air (apparently thats bad in this instalation)
Going with the filter was easyer and will give me street credits too

I still got the box can go back any time, why is that a bad thing to run a K&N filter.
At some of the LPG forums i'v have been lurking they seem to do that more to get rid of the ram air.

And not still not running on it still have few open item

* install the filler behind the plate
* install one way valve in the return line
* drill hole in spare tire trunk to route the lines and wiring the other way around and create a excape place if the tank leaks
* finish up the wiring

Must have been the slowest LPG build but its my first so learning allot

installed the LPG filler and movable plate to hide it.




Also checked out the wiring loom diffrence between the current and donor doors. The new ones have power mirrors and windows where as the old beaten ones dont.

Gonna need to find out how much work it is to repin the looms because they dont match.. I do believe White Rice had the looms i need.....

Also its good to know that these doors came of a RHD car where my car is LHD so the looms for adjusting the mirrors are on the wrong side too.

While i was looking at the wiring i found that the fresh air valve was broken, i dont like fresh (read cold) air on my feet all the time so close it, if i want fresh air i'll open the roof

Wiring of the LPG is done, i ran out of nice connectors so it does not look as nice as i'd hoped but it will do.
I like that i installed the vacuum with OEM volvo hoses to the reducer so it looks OEM :-)

All is ready execpt the line from the tank to the reducer. The connector is to close to the tank even with the adapter shorten to the point of unusable its not going to fit.
Pretty frustrating because that is the only thing keeping me from running on LPG

stif springs need stif shocks, otherwise the springs will overpower the shock action. (oversprung/ underdampened.)
soft springs with stif shocks is a nice combo (Peugeot approach)
soft springs with soft shocks makes the car into a f-ing barge...

It make sense to replace the shocks because i got red overload koni's from white-rice and with the LPG tank that is a welcome upgrade. I'l;l try to bolt everything over next saterday at the sleuteldag @ nordicar.. not yet posted but in stock is a set of swaybars that will also go on this car (not taken from white-rice but a second set :-))

oh and for the LPG messing with the tank valve, seems like its wrongly installed talking to people on the LPG forums on how to proceed and getting the right certificate.
Pretty frustrating this is takeing so long all the other stuff is in place and working

installed the Hausser springs and bilstein shocks today and installed the front IPD bar.
not too many picutures because i was just too busy, many people made photo's (it was at a volvo meeting at a volvo garage) so if some funny ones pop up i'll post em up, here is what i got.
Just suprised i though it should be lower 4CM but maybe its the small wheels making it even higher, it went from 4x4 to normal car hight for my feeling

Nice conversion to LPG. Just about everyone I know in Holland has gone to LPG conversions. Cheap & efficient.
Wonder why you don't see it here?

with prices of petrol being the most expensive of all places in the world it makes sense if you want to drive something not really efficient.
I also now understand why my 760 looked lower.. the B230ET with airco etc etc must have been weighing a bit more than the B230K weights
