Few more things done:

-thermostat spacer to add an E30 temp sender for the dash gauge.



-upper intake spacer to clear taller injectors (S40 injectors are short and I’ll probably just run greens for now)



-hardlines for turbo coolant in/out. Had to order some different -10 fittings for the drain and still waiting on a straight -4 for oil feed as well as the time to weld the -4 and -10 steel fittings to the OE hardlines.



Oh, also added some 3/8” stainless bar to support the turbo

I like the vintage look. Brass and copper.

I don't think the copper will see temps or pressures where work hardening is an issue. Cu/Ni (cunifer) is also an option - and polishes up just about as nicely as copper, although not as 'pretty' a copper color. The lines look nice. I think we all know that the aesthetic approach taken on this project has always been different and interesting -- in the best possible way. Cool stuff.

Yeah, I’m not sweating it too much. Also, it’s just water. If it cracks it won’t be spraying hot oil all over the turbo.

Made an oil pressure block for the dash light and ECU. I used nickel copper brake line. I welded a -4AN fitting to a turbo banjo line that threaded into the OE oil pressure sender port.



I added DEI titanium wrap to the up pipe to keep the gasses hot and keep all the other hoses nearby safe. I also added an 1/8” NPT port near the turbine inlet. My tuner says we can put a pressure sender there (with some tube to insulate from the heat) to get a feel for turbine sizing and pressure ratio (or something like that).

I actually bought it to use on the 16v Penta setup but never made it that far.

Been a while since I posted anything. Just working on dumb detail stuff. Alternator mount.



Made a floor mount shifter since I’m switching to an early trans and don’t want to use the sheet metal shifter carriage



Remains to be seen how well it works.

Throttle body adapter to shift the angle and to use a Volvo 960 cable 65mm throttle body



Grabbed a backup bellhousing so I can make a backup trans if needed.



Machines some caliper piston masking plugs for a set of Volvo R calipers I’m throwing custom paint at



Made a custom bed side table for my wife for Christmas.



Not pictured
-got an OEM S40 engine harness to mod
-got all the clutch bits final assembled
-got the trans attached for last time
-made FPR mount
-made IACV mount
-started fabricating heater hose hard lines

I'm sure I'm missing something - with engine/tranny able to move relative to the body, how will that body mounted shifter accommodate the movement?

I intend on making an adjustable selector linkage to get the resting angle of the shifter arm where I want it, but the ball pivot at the transmission means it shouldnít change much from trans cage movement. Any fore/aft movement is is translated in reverse motion at the shift knob. Axial rotation translates to similar movement of the shift knob (multiplied by the deflection at the ball pivot).

With a standard cage-to-trans mounted shifter, when you move the shifter left/right, the shifter below the pivot ball swings out (left right) rotating the selector at the trans. Iím allowing for that movement in a reverse order. It might cause more interior shifter movement as the engine torques, but shouldnít bother me. As with everything else, Iíll see how it works and toss it if I donít like it.

Here’s a couple that already exist in the market. I just built my own by welding a piece of the OEM cage in place as opposed to CNCing a complete replacement.

She loves it. Iíll try and get some pics later. She likes that itís at the same height as the bed so she doesnít have to reach down a bunch to get her coffee.
