Finally! Better things for the 240! I wasn't looking for a ride height change, just better dampers, stiffer spring rates, more camber and general street cred increase.
-Springs: 280#F 2.5"x8" with 4" long tender springs (100#) 175#R 5"x10.5"
-Dampers: Koni Sports
-Modified the strut tubes...
Hey it works! 5000 rpm set point, makes a bar of boost. I just wanted to hear it more than anything else.

Well. It works. Pedal feel is fantastic, firmer than stock 240. Modulation is excellent and its quite capable of throwing you into the dash. I haven't tried to lock up the 245s yet.
Front calipers. 17Z L and R...
Making the drive out to portland and beyond.
I leave tomorrow AM.

Hey look. The light got nice. The cicadas are loud as ****. I'll get better video when I make one of my friends record some full throttle stuff or stick some go pros on the outside.
Any comments regarding fading plastic will be disregarded. I'm burnt out on this stuff lol.
Woooo. Sorry for the substandard video. First start tonight. Open downpipe of course.

A bit of a conundrum here. I swapped out the front half of my driveshaft with a 740 M47 shaft. Both halves still have all appropriate balance weights on them, I can only assume nothing is wrong with them.
The question is, did volvo balance them as an assembly or separate?
I took them to a shop...
Soooo I figured I'd give it a try. And it'd match the steering wheel too.
0.8mm thickness goat hide. (It has quite a bit of stretch which is critical)
Weldwood contact cement (apparently its THE cement to use with leather)
Patience and being able to realize you will screw...
In the Netherlands visiting Mr Borrie, so this is an issue his car is having.
1986 760 Turbo w/ Motronic.
He is running a bondo header so quite a bit more heat closer to critical things.
After a bit of driving, he starts to get a misfire above 1500 rpm. Amount of load doesn't really...
Realized I've been driving this car since soph year of HS. 2002. 217k right now. Cleaned it up today.
Picasa still degrades the **** out of them when uploaded.:-(
Yeah, paint my trim. I know i know.
Different shades of black:-P
