It lives! Low buck 240DL->240 Turbo swap

Sweet horn, I found one similar and regret not buying it. NPR=jelly

also, I like 'turbo cool'

I was going to make my trunk lid say 'Turbo erection' but idk how my work would feel about it.

Thanks. Yeah, it's probably for the best that you don't put "erection" on your trunk lid...




DeatschWerks DW300 fuel pump installed. Next step: main fuel pump delete.
Let's play a game. It's called "spot what's new in varg's engine bay"

Look a little closer... What's this? Yes, that's right, four (count 'em!) GM D585 truck ignition coils. Better known as LS2/7 coils, they pack a wallop. And to the right; a quartet of Siemens Deka 80lb High impedance injectors.

You know what that means, right? Megasquirt.

After months of waiting and many, many hours of labor-intensive wiring harness construction I am ready to reap the benefits of a truly modern engine management system. Gone are the quaint distributor and archaic batch-fire injection system that is LH2.2. No more is the flow into my turbo inhibited by an AMM. Yes, I have some tuning to do... Lots of it as a matter of fact. But as of now, I am proud to say that it idles like a sewing machine, revs more quickly and has much more torque all around. Although, due to the state of my tune, I haven't even floored and revved it out to my new 7,000RPM rev limit yet, nor have I turned the boost up past 16psi.


^Ghetto-fabulous torque strap to keep all of those torques from tearing the marshmallowy engine mounts apart.

Videos to come soon.
just playin with ya. car looks awesome man. i know i will talk **** to you, but this car has really transformed from when you first got it...it makes me want to drag my piece to where i'm living now so i can do the same stuff..

I didn't know you had that grille badge. The idea just came to me one day at the junkyard when I put a nasty, but conveniently placed bend in an intercooler badge I was removing. Thanks though, and get on it! Get that Volvo moving fast!
New videos!
