Default 945 b230fb+t

I bought my first car and Volvo in 2017 when I was 19 y/o.

1991 945 B230FB with 215.000 miles on it and already installed perfect condition 740 seats and a
KAW Pluskit suspension.

Finally I want to get this thread started! Already lost a lot because I often dont think about taking pictures...

Before putting on the turbo I did the following:
Measured compression, Changed the headgasket and inspected the engine from inside, checked the valve timing.

What's done:

Suspension:
- Hydra Wheels painted black
- KAW Pluskit suspension

Engine:
- TD04H 13C Turbo (FK Version for now)
- Catchcan install (to atmosphere for now)
- Turbo ECU
- Cheap FPR (Going to upgrade this in the near furure)
- Electric fan addition
- Air oil cooler

Interior:
- 740 Seats
- Custom center console

Exterior:
- Roof rack mounted
- Fog light install
- Turbo grill

Electric:
- Keyless Entry system added


What I'm going to do:

Engine:
- Fit 850 T5R injectors
- Better FPR

Transmission:
- M90 swap

Interior:
- Redo hanging headliner

Cant really post more images atm. For more you can visit me on Instagram @jag.rullar

I cleaned the crankcase breather box yesterday.
The removal and installation was easier than i thought.

Before the +T I noticed oil leaking out of the oil cap from time to time. After the +T there was a bit of blue smoke for 1-2 seconds sometimes (on a really hot day), but no oil leaking out of the oil cap.

I just hooked up the garden hose to the outlet. It all shot out in a matter of seconds! Probably has never been cleaned. I then flushed it with diesel and left it to dry in the sun.

There was no blue smoke at all on a two hour drive and the idle is much smoother (I could just imagine it).

I'll probably delete the fan anyway. So you can pad the engine without breaking your fingers! Just watch out for that timing belt.

Installed the oil cooler today.

It's a cheap (160$) ebay one with a thermostat set to ~80°C.



The cooler itself looks and feels to be of really high quality!



The sandwich plate came with a 3/4" extension the the filter thread. To gain clearance with the motor mount I had to use a OC606 oil filter (thank you MadDog!). If your oil filter is relocated there is no reason for that.



The hose was a bit short (40") so my mounting has to wait until I get extensions.



Conclusion:

The water temp gauge stays a tiny bit upfront the middle position while cruising. On load it centers and then quickly returns when off load.

Hey man looking good! Quick question, is that oil cooler a direct bolt on to the block, have a link to it? My car is in need of a cooler bad..Wondering if it'll clear the mount on a 240 with the big mann filter. I was worried about a universal oil cooler not having the correct length and thread pitch bolt for the cooler>block.

The oil filter has a 3/4" thread. My kit (as most of them) had that sized thread extension . You will need the OC606 filter if you dont have the relocation mount that turbos have.

Thanks man. I think it’s different on a 240 mount but I’ll have to look.

For the record: The left on is the old ecu and the right one the new turbo one. Works perfect!

I have the opportunity to get 4 25mm 5x108 spacers really cheap along with some 17" steel rims and Volvo original hub caps.

I think my black Hydras w/o hub caps and 25mm spacers would look nice

I will post some pics once i picked them up in Bielefeld (if that town even exists) later this weekend!
