    I think you need to add i was in an s80 with three wheels getting pulled backwards and was told to "hold on shit is about to get real".

    Gawd in heaven...

    It is spectacular. You've set a very high bar for other builds to aspire to - the attention to detail is enviable.

  • Im surprised the rods are not longer and the pistons shorter and more h beam on the rods

    Still looks good though

    Amazing project - vertical B20, I'm in awe, technical prize winning. I'm in meltdown over the clutch/fly combo.
    Pic4 - dash mounted fluids - Sorry but an instant fail at CAMS scrutineering for having fluids in the cabin.
    At the very least they would have to be placed inside a fully sealed metal box near the floor.
    For other dash gauges, ensure no fluid goes to them, electrical senders only.

  • Good thing I've built it to how I want it and not to any rules.because I want the reservoirs there one the dash.

    It's a very impressive show car.
    I have over 300 parts for sale to suit 100, 200, 700 and 900 series Volvo's, for more info see: http://zyrex.org/gallery/Cars/acw/volvoparts/

    Aren't you going to race it? I think he's talking about rules at the track.
  • You are talking the more tolerant hillclimb style rules too @Anthony ?
  • Once I get it going if there's things I need to change it will address them then.but at the moment I'm doing things the way I fell they should be and want.o plan to do track days and car club meets mostly.just fun days.obviously the resinous need to be above the master cylinders and thats the most suitable place for them

    Top left engine bay is a bracket holding a manifold air pressure sensor - correct?
    Good its mounted above inlet manifold height, but suggest moving away from turbo exhaust heat zone and hence over to middle of engine bay; also so the length of tube is a shorter run.

    A turbo blanket to contain heat radiation - from inlet manifold.

    Coil packs - info appreciated

    Im also suprised to not see a better rod ratio on the rods and pistons, rsi even offer stuff for the b20 that will improve that...
