    Looks like Im the first to have time to post pictures of this years event (thanks night shift sleep schedule :roll:) I didn't take as many pictures as I would have liked, but I was busy spending time with old friends and making a few new ones. Honestly, one of my favorite events every year...

    2" aint much, but I make it count.

    I recently bought a 90 244 on cragslist for $300 with a blown transmission, traded a few parts for a new/used trans, gave her a quick polish, and added her to the fleet. unfortunately the shocks/struts were totally blown, so I ordered some new units. wait, whats that big aluminum bugger...

    a few shots of the DD

    A wild 245 appears! 245 belongs to Owen of #passedoutwithadoritoonmyshoulder fame.... I didnt get many good ones of his car as it doesnt have a "good side" and my white balance was waaaay off when I initially took pictures of his.

    Knox Motorsports meet. Jan. 4 2014

    As I'm sure most of you are aware, Lawrence Knox (of Knox Motorsports) has fallen on some tough times, both physically, and financially. Having met Lawrence on several occasions I can personally attest to his character, helpfulness, and influence on the volvo community. So, if you can help...

    601 superiority complex

    I picked this car up about a month ago and finally got around to posting a thread on it. I had been daily driving my 242 for a year or so and it just isn't set up for DD status, so something else was in order.... conveniently this popped up on CL about 45 minutes (and $40 worth of tolls) away on...

    LH2.4 swap issue

    I have mostly finished my lh2.4 swap on my 81 242t. so far I have 12v at both the ecu and ezk, 12v at fuel pump relay, and the fuel system functions properly. relay fires in KPII, and injectors fire while cranking. so afaik, fuel is on point. spark is where the issue is.... when I put the key...

    601 ftw

    Went out for a quick photoshoot with my buddy Josh and his 98 v70T5, and my wife's 92 244. proof positive, 601 red is the best Volvo color ever. the Lighting and weather didnt really cooperate, so a fair amount of post editing went into this, and im not too swift with the software, so it is...

    240 242 +T lh2.2/ezk running poorly

    Ok, I've been beating my head against this all weekend and I cant figure it out. My 81 242t has a 95 b230fd swapped in with lh2.2/ezk swap, 3"turboback exhaust, 90+, .52AR t3, etc. it was running great thursday, but it had a few suspension clunks, i took it into the garage to fix the clunks...

    hard miss under load.

    my 242 is lh2.2/EZK117 swapped, been running great for a few months until recently. if I hit the gas more than about 1/3 throttle itll miss really hard once (more like briefly cut out) and then once it gets through that itll pull, but i can feel it bogging. the current setup is b230F, 90+...

    T5 swap questions.

    ok, im gearing up to do my t5 swap here in the next few months. i knwo optimally i would find a fox body 5.0 gearbox, but as expected none of the junkyards seem to have one. i know i can grab a v6 box and swap in the input shaft, but those transmissions dont handle as much torque, so i dont...
