PM'd. The maker of that decal gave it to me, and I'm not sure they are actively for sale. He can chime in if he would like to

I'm fortunate enough to do repairs for essential businesses Work wagon needs a rear main seal, starter, and one of our spare AW71s. Hoping to tackle those asap to keep oil inside the motor and the car on the road Hang in there TB!

Friend of ours gave me this intake manifold for my 242 project I've never seen a throttle plate with this kind of spring loaded valve on it. Can anyone school me on how that works? Just curious. I will be swapping the throttle body for my LH2.4 setup

That spring valve was on all 240 Turbo throttles. It's a pressure relief valve for when the throttle closes under boost.

We tried that manifold on an LH2.4 rally car. Not much better then the original 2.4 manifold.
It only got better when we installed a throttle body from a B234F. (flows enough air for 159hp stock) This did require hogging out the manifold and making an adapter piece.

Thanks for the heads up Janspeed Stock manifold will go back to being the plan.

Dad bought a '93 945 turbo from a local Volvo mechanic for $600
