was a little dissapointed about having matt's wagon hacked up, I spent a just a little time in that car and doing some MS tuning on it - but it's cool an better seeing it all go into a really nice 242.
Yeah he mentioned that you had helped him tune it, car ran great so good work. Matt is a really good guy and he did a nice job on the car. He certainly spent money in the right places, it was the first Volvo I had seen with that kind of work done to it. If it helps at all by the time I got up there Matt was just happy to get the car out of his barn and have something be done with it. Hopefully the tan car is a deserving home.
Can't thank everyone enough for the positive remarks on the car. I've been at it for a while now but never wanted to put a thread up because I didn't think it was exciting or interesting enough. It's nice to share it with people who "get it" and appreciate the work.
Those are rear torque rods
We made another bracket to sandwich between the intercooler bracket and lower rad support. I had to notch that center brace there a bit to clear the cooler. Happy with how this came together, looks clean and nice and solid.
Great thread, much inspiration to the +t of my 79 242 GT this summer!
I am so glad someone saved that car, and is doing a spectacular job at that. Well done!
I would be careful with that mounting scheme, You will want some type of impact protection on that oil cooler. Something like that is susceptible to getting damaged by silly stuff like branches or cones in the road.
A skid tray with proper ducting would be sufficient.
