I've been pushing myself to do something with my projects every day, no matter how small. Not every day is a Volvo day, but I'm moving forward.

Got the rods and NA pistons into the block, front and rear seals in, and the oil pump and pan on.



Don't mind my garage. My life, and especially the garage, is lived in a constant state of near to full on chaos. It's exhausting and infuriating, but somehow I manage.



And awhile back I managed to finally give her a good wash and recharge the AC!





It's time to start robbing parts off the engine in the 760 in order to get this one buttoned up enough to set in place, as of now it's at least mobile, so I'm not looking forward to taking it out of commission with the way my motivation has been lately. This is also the point where parts I don't have on hand are going to be throwing me off. I already don't think I have o-rings for the oil filter extension, and the PCV parts I have are for a later car.

Not the time to dwell on what's gonna hold me up, though. Just gotta keep moving.

Water pump, timing belt tensioner, and YoshiFab oil drain fitting installed tonight. The manifold is just hung for now, I forgot to order gaskets :(. Next I need to reclock the 15g, and mount the late 760 oil filter extension/cooler thermostat. I'm waiting on an IPD order with a cam in it. Once it shows up I can get it timed and get the front buttoned up. And once I get manifold gaskets I can wrap up the hot side as well.

Starting Thursday I have 7 days off, and I would LOVE to hear this run by the end of that. It's a lofty goal, and parts will probably hang me up, but even just getting this motor set in the car would be cool.

Since I'm moving from the T3 to a Mitsu turbo do I need to change the coolant hoses for the water cooling? Also I think the charge pipe couplings are a little different on the turbo side for the Mitsu cars.

Just about everything I'm using came off a 1990, so I think I'm safe ordering parts for that as opposed to the 1986 T3 car.

Lastly what's stopping me from using this do88 piping kit? FCP says it's only for 92-95 models

Edit: late turbo cars have the intercooler inlet and outlet lower than the earlier ones.
