I hear the engines are much easier to position with block hugger- style headers. helps with steeing shaft clearance or somesuch.

Indianapolis roads are like the surface of the moon. One of my fronts is slightly bent and wont seal on the backside, waiting on that wheel to be repaired before swapping over the front suspension from the blue volvo.

The b230f+t from the blue volvo has been in the GT for a few weeks now and is running very nice. Set at only 10psi since 18psi which is what it's tuned for makes the clutch slip like butter. :/


Front bumper is from a red 940t, The eggcrate insert is going to be back in once it's red.


Rides so nice though! Good stock GT suspension, no rear sway along with 1.5 rounds off the rear springs.

Full interior pics soon after finalizing the gauge placement. It's 100% intact OE panels and so minty! However, I did swap the mirrors from the blue volvo.

I just ordered the stage three spec clutch disc this morning. Installing that right away when it arrives, along with a few trans seals/gaskets.

The 1031 with welded diff from the blue volvo will be moved to the gt when Im doin the clutch. Just in time for winter.

I still have the entire original gt spec b21 long block, if anyone knows the OE compression on these please do tell!

It is a 940t bumper cover.

It's the winter ride. 17s ride 100x better than 19s w/rubber bands. Ive been contemplating either reinstalling the stock mudflaps or those bigger less bulky universal ones all over ebay

Ikea used to sell flexible urethane cutting boards that Subie guys made into faux Rally Armor mudflaps. They come in red
