Default Volvo 940 13c to 19t swap as told by my daughter + Issues



Ok. First, this is mostly a children's video that my daughter and I enjoyed making together. Its not a thorough "how-to" video, but it gets the point across. This is a fairly straight forward swap if you're considering it.

1994 Volvo 940 turbo just swapped on a 19t, 012 amm and bosch s60r injectors (440cc?) With chipped computers and a wideband. I ran this setup with a 16t at 20psi on another car with no problems and good afr.

Now, we just finished the swap so I have not investigated this issue.

But I am completely pegged rich. I assume this is most likely a boost leak we created. I do have a CEL I haven't read but it's probably a fuel trim code. I'll read it tomorrow. Does that sound right? It's mostly drivable, although I haven’t gotten into heavy boost.

Other than that, pushing into the boost threshold seems a lot harder than it used to be, but I guess that's just a different wastegate I'm feeling.

Really just wanted to share her video. Give her a thumbs up if you get a second, it would make her day.

Thanks for all the positive comments guys. I haven't able to get outside and get everything dialed in any better yet.

Are they genuine s60r injectors or ebay specials??? Those have had some poor performance if they are knockoffs.

Rich issue seems to have been caused by a loose intake manifold ground. Afr are good now.

The unfortunate news is that I'm a terrible, terrible turbo rebuilder. The nut that holds everything together is no longer there and the blades are beyond eaten up. I'd say most of it is trash. So disappointed to even post that. All I can do is hang my head in shame.

I used to work with a guy who displayed, "Experience teaches best but teaches last." on his desk. Always liked that one.
