240 Andrews '91 240 Wagon
just thought I'd start a build thread on my 240 Wagon as I'm planning on doing a few modifications. I picked it up recently with just under 120k km's.
Someone has replaced the larger rear glass with the older, smaller type.
It's all pretty standard under the bonnet, except for a relay which the previous owner said has something to do with the starter. I haven't investigated further because the car works fine.
I was able to pick the car up fairly cheap because it has a gnarly scrape down the LHS.
So far I'm loving it, except for the fact the A/C packed up the first week I had it, but it definitely needs more poke.
My plan at the moment is to slowly prepare the car for a turbo install while still keeping it drivable, so the list is:
- Buy an AW71 (hopefully AW71L), mod the accumulators and install
- Fit a wideband and aftermarket ECU that I have leftover from a previous project
- Fit bigger injectors
- Mount an intercooler in the front
- Fit an Evo TD05HRA-16G6, also leftover from a previous project, using the stock Evo manifold adapted to the Volvo exhaust flange
The port spacing on the redblock is a little wider than the 4g63, but I'm hoping I can reuse most of the Evo manifold with 4 short stub pieces to adapt it to the Volvo flange and position the turbo correctly... if anyone sees any glaring reason why it won't work please let me know.
Anyway, this will likely be a pretty slow build because I have a couple of other projects on the go and the 240 is my daily drive, but I'm very keen to get back into a turbo car!
