Introduction

Hi,
I am relatively new to Minnesota, and just acquired a 1987 240 DL 5 speed. I am not of St. Paul and am looking for some fellow enthusiasts to work on projects with. Specifically, I may need advice on a new camshaft installation. Here are some pictures of the car

Hello all,

I have been driving a 2012 Volvo XC70 T6 for some time now and am interested in giving it a bit of a boost. I live in Minnesota and I was wondering if anybody has any recommendations for the best performance parts and I was also wondering if anybody has had any experience with a shark performance tune that could give me an idea of what it is like.

Welcome to the forum! For advice on your specific model, I'd start a thread in that area of the forum and people from all over will have some advice for you.

For things related to Minnesota specifically (meet-and-greets, local shops, etc.), I'd check out the Minnesota Facebook group. I'm not on there, but from what I hear it is especially active and supportive bunch of enthusiasts. Have fun!

Yes, as you can see from this thread, activity really died down a few years ago. But it didn't "die", it moved to https://www.facebook.com/groups/mnvolvo/ - we have an enormous community there. I'm one of the admins. We like having a private (rather than public) forum for discussions like planning events etc for security and other reasons. It is also a much nicer user experience for sharing photos / videos / etc than here. Hope to see you over there!

I’ve never had Facebook. Kinda don’t want to get it either. Wish they updated this page still but that would be a lot of work to do both.
