    So I've got a 1991 240 NA Auto, got it for free from a family friend who knows I love Volvo's. Its not beautiful but its solid and all there, older ladies car.

    What steering rack do I have?

    I've done plenty of reading, I think I have read every thread and post I could find regarding ZF vs CAM. I don't care which is better or swapping of any of that. I simply want to know which I have and I have 0 info set in stone as to what a ZF looks like, from my guess it's a ZF because it...

    780 Power Steering Cold Start

    Ive got a 1989 780. Until it warms up and you drive it for a few mins, the power steering is incredibly tough to steer to the left. After a few turns though its fine.

    1989 780 Bertone Front Valance Alternatives

    Extremely bummed out, can't even explain. Driving someone home last night, drove over/brushed up on a pretty tough snowbank, more than I thought. Noticed my front valance was missing after work, went back and it was in pieces, destroyed. I understand they're pretty hard to come by as it is, and...

    780 Gauge Placement Options/Recommendations

    Is there any such thing as a 700 series dual pillar gauge? I had triple pillar gauges on my Powerstroke and eventually I realized how distracting they were and how much less I could really see in that direction, especially at night (granted I skipped wiring in the dimmer switch, my fault). I...

    1989 780 Bertone Seat Functions Not Working

    Ever since I bought the car, my heated seats don't work, but the switches light up. The driver side seat has many power options but the only working one is the forward and backward of the track of the seat, it won't even unlock to let someone climb in the back. My cruise control also doesn't...

    1989 780 Turbo Idle/Misfire?

    I've got a 1989 780 Bertone Turbo and in the past month I've done new plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor, fuel filter, fuel pump, belts, and I'm sure I'm missing some stuff. Anyway, I noticed whoever put the last cap and rotor on must have broke the plastic clip and pinched the wiring of...

    I've got a 1989 780 Bertone 2.3 Turbo, not that mine are leaking or broken, that I was looking to purchase a full vacuum line kit to replace them all, pre cut/good to go. Possibly even in a snazzy color to freshen up the engine bay. Does this exist? I did a quick google search and checked IPD...

    Opinions on Tinted Windows/Windshields

    So I've had just about all my cars tinted and I love it. Never a windshield though, I probably have around 30% all the way around at the moment maybe 35%, it's old tint though. So coming up I'm going to be re-tinting the whole car. It is a daily driver, and I live in the city now. I was...

    Tinted Windshields... Opinions

    I think I'm posting in the right section, correct me if I'm not. I personally like to tint my windows all around but I usually run a small brow on the windshield or nothing. Pretty soon in the next couple weeks, they're retinting my car because the current tint is old and I'm going darker...

    So for tuning and monitoring purposes, I know Ill need a wideband O2 sensor but how will it communicate with the computer? Do I need a different ECU/fuel control like megasquirt or a chipped ECU to run a wideband? What companies do you guys recommend? I've used glow shift in the past for my...

    LH2.2 to MegaSquirt or LH2.2 to 2.4 then MegaSquirt

    I've been trying to get my hands on a chip or way to tune my LH2.2 ECU but it seems like its pretty tough, and I don't know how far I would go with power but who knows I might just need more and more and the process of it all is fun anyways. I've been doing a lot of reading on LH2.2 and tuning...
