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

Remembered that I had a spare set of mudflaps for the brodozer. Installed them for +5 steez. Want to make or find a set for the front.





Finding parts for the 242. Ready to start tinkering with it again

The wagon was leaking profusely, so we did a pan gasket and trans filter. Bit messy, but really easy My neighbor caught my daughter and I on the roof trimming trees back Also spotted a VERY nice amazon wagon in downtown Modesto. Hope everyone is doing well!

Just when you thought the wagon couldn't get more boring...someone gave me a set of stock GLE wheels with decent tires. Winning



Also cleaned up the grill

So it looks like our wrecked wagon has a B23F. Anything special about these? Car was running like a top before it was wrecked. Nice quiet engine

Modesto is putting in work. Especially lunchb0x Took his 940 to my Dad's compound to swap in a more fresh engine.
