i considered that, but decided against it, -- with my solution the splash from the front wheels is kept out but plenty of air comes in. That and the oil cooler made all the difference. -- including the bigger radiator of course --

Those nice baby's are in my car now :

It seems to be a very nice improvment over my previous Denso, even they're rated at 42lbs/min.

I think it's because of the spray pattern of the Lucas/Delphi injectors...

I've changed my stock 19 years old knock sensor to a new version, and my car love it! Low end torque is better by far, car pulls great, and even the idle is better! I was not excpecting that, but it's the truth!

Thursday my new plugs'll be here (I hope...), so next to come are the result...and maybe a dyno number...before Christmas!

That would be nice. I hope to finish my head soon too (during the next few days, in fact).

I know someone who has a clean set of PROPUS for sale!

When you get a chance, PM the part# for your 9 series clutch master cylinder. Volvo does not list a part# in the webstores for the 9.....I do have the # for the 7s. Curious what you bought. I've got most of my M90 pieces together (LUK Diesel clutch inhand) but need the master.

The Vagen is looking good!

The shipping from the States was the killer. Same price for wheels only, as we agreed before. What you need to do is arrange for your vendor/customer in Rome GA. to ship them back to Swtizerland for you

Damn! The wheels are not so expensive, but with shipping it's killer!!! And I can't find a cheaper solution as we had discussed...
