Are you briging an empty trailer in case I break down? I have to fix my oil pressure problem first and put an exhaust on the thing.

Too bad the oil pressure light came on today and wont go off.
how much of a gap is there from the turbo to the strut tower? Would there be enough to have an 8v mani + yoshifab adaptor?

Nope. You really need to just let that one go too, dude. Im not running those 204ft oil lines on this engine. The B204FT oil feed is for a banjo fitting and it actually seemed to line up just fine. The oil return pipe didnt really look like it was designed to fit the angle of the boss on the B234 block. I am gonna see what happens when I put a 16v head on a B230FT. I think the B204FT oil lines will work OK.

@ovlover: I am running a B204FT exhaust manifold. I have no idea what the clearance would be with an adaptor plate. I personally dont believe in those things at all. Its like forcing a oval peg down a square hole. However, I will tell you that the clearance between turbo compressor housing and B234F motor mount when using a B204ft exhaust manifold is VERY VERY close. Maybe a couple millimeters close. I had to grind down one of the bolt bosses to get the housing to clear and be clocked properly.

Im gonna test the oil pressure with a guage ASAP and post back with results. Its gotta be the oil pump, pressure spring, or pickup tube:

you have to make power to break em 'air manual transmissions. if its going to be making power, hope you at least did the accum mod, or you'll be back out there pulling another auto shortly.

I really only went back to auto to get the car on the road since I snapped my M90 shift linkage on the test fire.

The pressure plate I had was glazed to a mirror finish, the flywheel was similar, and the clutch disc was at about 50% and less than a year old. I need a performance 940 pressure plate and a performance 850 clutch disc to even consider taking it back to the track. Last time I was there is was slipping like a mofo and I was only doing mid 9's in the 1/8th.

i was just curius if there was enough clearence between the turbo and strut tower to run an 8v mani + adaptor. 204FTs are non existant in aus, and for that i highly doubt the possibility of ordering one, and i dont want to get a custom mani. This may seem obvious, but everything besides the mani, is all 230FT items yes? What you have is EXACTLY what i want with mine. It looks awsome!

Yes an 8v manifold and turbo will fit just fine on a 16v head in a 7/9 series with sd turbos adapter. It should also fit in a 240

They dont have B204FT's in the US either. I just got lucky and have found and bought 3 204ft exhaust manifolds over the years. I sold one and now own two. The new one is on my 940 and the plan is to put my used one on my 240 along with the brand new 204ft intake manifold I have aquired.

Edit- I emailed the guy at this website years ago and he said he could get them, but I never sent any money over because the communication was marginal and it didnt feel right. Check it out and report back. The guy who emailed me back was Pavel Kucera. http://www.scandicar.com.pl/volvo/engine-manifold.html

Doesnt matter anyways, since the car has a low oil pressure problem right now that I need to fix. I have a thread going in the maintenance forum about this so please post if you have any ideas: http://forums.turbobricks.com/showth...=1#post3119998

16v is awesome! Once you hit 4k it really takes off! I cant wait to get the exhaust and fix oil leaks so I can really enjoy it. Oh yeah, and get some oil pressure too.

I was going to say get the right intake manifold for your 16VT to make it really stock, but I read you found a brand new one!

Install it!

Good luck on improving your oil pressure.

I have not been able to source a b204FT throttle cable, fuel rail, or throttle body and linkage so I am gonna keep the 234F manifold for now on the 940. The 240 is going to get the 204FT intake manifold so it will clear the master cylinder. And my 1975 245 is smog exempt since its '75 or older and I can have custom parts under the hood and not get any attention.
