    940 Lost key. How do I open this car?

    As title mentions. Lost key, 1990 940. I think I can order a new key from the dealer if I have the VIN. However, how do I find the VIN if I can't open the hood? So how do I open this car without causing damage? All help is appreciated.

    B234F+T experiences

    I just bought a 940 16V. The car is from december 1990. Does this have 13mm rods? Or is there no way to tell? Who has +T'd these engines with the high compression ratio? Doable or is it better to put the B234 head on a 8v turbo engine? I know from my VW days for those engine head spacers to...

    Bosch 0227100203 ignition module: Going high or going low?

    I am testing the MS2 I built into my 940. I think I just fried my ignition module during the spark testing. Wanted to test the spark using the tunerstudio test mode, and it did work. However my ignition module got extremely hot very quickly. (touching it HURT) Now it does not produce a spark...

    Twin scroll turbo: Divider not flush with rest of flange

    Turbo is a S200G 54/56, never used. I notice that the divider between ports is not flush with the rest of the flange: 1: Any idea why the manufacturer would do this? 2: Is it worth it to have milled flat or is it not critical for response? Kind regards

    MS Questions: LH VR sensor, and dwell settings

    Hello, I am changing to MS2 on my 940. I will be using the stock redblock VR sensor, which has 3 pins. one VR+, one VR- and a shield (ground). 1. Which pin corresponds to which connection? IIRC Pin 2 is VR-, what about 1 and 3? 2. Is it necessary/recommended to use a shielded wire from...

    Alternatives for Volvo 740/940 top mounts

    Ever since I changed to coilovers, I noticed how bad the stock top mounts are. They move a lot and even are noisy. I can't tighten them any more than I already have. Are there any decent alternatives available? Many thanks

    Dog Dish Flywheel and high torque

    Are dog dish flywheels safe to use or not? I read horror stories about exploding flywheels, but what is the actual cause of this? What are your dogdish experiences good or bad? And yes, I know they are heavy.

    Pedal feel with 302mm brakes

    I just installed C70 302mm front brakes onto my '97 940. I notice I need to press the pedal a little bit further and it is not as stiff as before. Is this to be expected because of the piston diameter (no idea if there is a difference) or did I not bleed correctly?

    Crankcase vent has gasoline smell

    940T. I routed the crankcase vent to a catch can instead of the intake. I noticed that the vented gases smell like gasoline. Engine oil is new. To what degree is this expected?

    High rpm tacho problems, 940 with wasted spark

    I am running wasted spark ignition on my 940. Using the miata (mitsu j702t) power stage which also has a tach output. The tach output of the power stage is low voltage, and my instrument cluster requires a high voltage. So I used this circuit to generate a high voltage signal, as suggested in...

    940: Vibrations under heavy load

    940: Vibrations under heavy load Since I upped the boost on my LPT I have the following issue. At WOT, when the turbo kicks in and the torque starts to increase, I can feel (and hear) vibrations until approximately 3-3500 rpm. At higher engine speeds the vibrations are not present. These...

    D-camshaft in B230FT, too much overlap?

    Currently have a stock T cam in my b230. I have a D cam laying around here. At 11.2mm lift it could be an improvement over the T cam. However, what worries me is that there is 20 degrees of overlap at 1mm(0.025") lift. (lash taken into account). For comparison, this is only 8 degrees for the...

    3 Inch exhaust: how to get it more quiet?

    I have been using my homemade 3" exhaust for 2 weeks, and yesterday I removed it because the droning was driving me crazy. I now run my 3 inch downpipe into the stock 940T exhaust. This is very quiet but you won't believe how much torque this killed. The 3 inch system looks like this: -No cat...
