Been wanting one for a while but couldn't find the right one at the right time. Found this one on TB and jumped on it. Drove out 2 and a half hours to get it and I couldn't be happier!

Here are a few pictures













Couple of things I've done so far:

Fuel filter
Thermostat
Replaced a few vacuum lines


Things on their way to my door:

-IPD adjustable panhard bar
-IPD adjustable torque rods
-HD 240 diesel motor and trans mounts
-Spec stage 1 240 turbo clutch kit
-Window scrapers
-B23 intake manifold and TB
-All parts for LH 2.4 swap
-90+ turbo exhaust manifold and 940 oil feed/return lines
-(Hopefully) 18t turbo


Future plans:

-b230ft
-getrag trans
-LSD rear
-full 3" exhaust

LOOKING FOR HYDRA RIMS!!!!

Looks beautiful. Good luck with it. Why the adjustable panhard and torque rods?

They need new bushings and IPD was having a sale. So I figured since I'm lowered and it's on sale... I may as well buy them :)

Beats having to replace the old bushings on the original rods. Done that a couple times myself.

And this way I can perfect the alignment! And plus it'll be nice to see the blue IPD powder coat from underneath the car ;)

Nice ride... This is going to be the next Volvo I buy. I like the color of yours too. There was one 3 hours away from where I live for 1200 but someone beat me to it. How much did you pay if you don't mind me asking?

Got rid of my gold "pimp mobile" virgos and got me some hydras!





Also got around to doing my panhard bar. Since I have use of only my right hand I had to get my girl to lend me a hand. These bushings were torn and cracked beyond belief. Hopefully I can get my torque rods in tomorrow when the spec stage 1 clutch goes in

Started doing my clutch and IPD adjustable torque rods today. Found out my clutch fork was damaged and was about to break completely. So now I'll have to wait til tomorrow for the new fork to show up





Old torque rid bushings. Completely shot





New rods



The new ones are a lot beefier than the OEM ones. Hopefully they will last a long time

Removed the studs on the exhaust housing and drilled out the holes to fit the 90+ manifold







Ordered some custom lines for the oil and coolant so hopefully I can get a setup that will work!

Stage 0 started! Finding the 30 year vacuum hoses weren't meant to last that long!
