  • My Pigeon Pair 240 and 740

    Just finished a 15 month rebuild of these two treasures both painted in two pack old school two tone.

    The 1986 Turbo 740 has all the running suspension, brakes and full leather interior from a 1993 940 with a rebuilt Turbo Engine and IPD T Cam.

    It is a very comfortable cruiser with the AW71 Gerabox from the 940 I stripped and did an accumulator mod on.

    The 240 is a 1988 240 GLT M47 Manual which I completely stripped down, panel beated, painted and reupholstered in black leather.

    It is running a squirter block and head from the stripped out 940. New low compression pistons, H Rods, bearings, ARP bolts right through, ported head, stainless steel larger valves, stronger valve springs, cometic head gasket with tight squish and a TD04 19T Mamba Turbo. Fitted four Ls2 coils with wasted spark and running MaxxEcu Sport ECU and Mtune Dash Display.

    Suspension has been completely rebuilt with Billsteins, Poly Bushes everywhere, IPD front and rear sway bars, Drilled and Grooved Disks, all new brake lines. DVS front springs and Kings in the rear. Upper and lower strut braces etc etc.


    Just need to run them in now and then TURN UP THE BOOST

    Good looking project. I like the Plenum you are constructing, should do the trick.

    Where did you get the 90+ exhaust manifold from. I have been chasing one for my recently completed 240 project.

    I am currently running an earlier model manifold and it with the extensive engine mods it could use a better breathing exhaust.

    Currently have a 1988 240 GLT and a 1986 740 Turbo

    What were the main "issues" - Rust, panels, trim or mechanical ??
