It gets its exhaust on Wednesday so I'll make sure to take a bunch of pics and video. 2.5" down to a single 3" pipe out the back with a muffler, no cat.

no, **** Volvo. We're making custom bumpers and rock sliders. The front will have a WARN winch and both front and rear will have super red d-rings.

lol. we're only "saving" the planet for ourselves. Once we've wiped ourselves out the planet will repair itself.

There is literally no technology that we have developed that would destroy the biosphere. We're just being selfish.

Plus you have no kids, so you are way ahead of me, environmentally speaking. You know I'm quasi-obligated to say something.

Welp, it runs but the "programmed" ECU that I paid $200 for doesn't see the map/maf/o2 sensors. So it gets to sit till a tuning shop has an opening... which is probably next year.

I've looked into it and cannot think of a good enough reason to get one. We have 330hp, which is plenty and the stock ECU can handle that. We're not doing any performance modifications to the motor, no turbo, no supercharger, nothin.

so you can sort out all the issues yourself. stock ecu is fine but you wouldnt be in your situation if you had a better one. the holley software is basically cheating. very easy learning curve.

not trying to hate on your decision or anything at all, i just personally dont like the stock ecu. however i do understand the appeal of it once its all sorted out.

I getchya, this car isn't worth adding another $2,000 for the ecu and new harness and we're in no rush. It's just frustrating when you think you're good to go and you run into **** like this.

I would like suggestions on a local tuner that can help us out sooner than later though.

/edit: I totally expect the body to end up in a crusher before the end of next year and the motor/trans to end up in another project. We're starting on the 300SDL this spring and i'd like to clear up time/space/money for that.

It's wonderful. Once the ECU gets told it has o2/MAP/MAF sensors it'll run a lot cleaner. That stage3 BTR cam just tickets my taint. I love it.

Term X is half that price, I ran my 242 all summer without getting a real tune, just used the self learning function

I know, but I would have to buy another custom harness and I'm very not interested in that.

Or give a smoking deal to pass it on to a local father/son duo (plus 2 other kids) that like working on Volvos and want to hoon around in the dirt.

It will never sell whole. It would probably just be a beat up chassis with no motor and suspension when we have it dragged off to the crusher.
