Hope this hasnt been mentioned as i didnt read all replies, but get the flame trap checked. When i got mine, there was oil seeping out the rear main. I was quoted over 600 to get a rear seal put in. THEN we chcked the flame trap...at BOTH ends. It was comepletely blocked! Changed the flame trap, unblocked the small pipe. Stop leaking right away.
Yeah, it wouldn't actually go better than a turbo, it would be missing 20kws over stock.
How do you know that? Did you see the engine perform?
Im sorry bro, but sometimes you come across as knowing everything. You didnt understand my original question, because you are in a hurry to know everything. You jumped to conclusions about what i was asking. There are some things outside your knowledge, just as there is heaps outside mine. If we cant accept there are things outside what we know, we dont learn. The same a while ago when i spoke about water injection and how its boosts power without any moding to the actual motor. But you think you know everything...and that WI cant possibly do that, because you dont think so. Well a dyno test proved it. The point is, if you think you know everything, you lose out on learning things outside what we think we know.
If you are going to leave the pistons in, put them in a lathe and put some interesting designs on the top of them with "machine turning" tools...or acid etch/sanblast some pics of volvo's on them.
Stensils for sandblasting are easy enough to cut out yourself.
You might be able to put the volvo emblem onto the raised part. :-)
Or lathe the entire top part flat...and then sandblast the volvo logo onto the entire flat area.
Beofre parts go missing of this, I hope someone can rescue this. It would be a shame to let it die.
It has just been listed, so might be able to buy it complete.
Ive noticed in a few crashed 240's like your one, that modern car heights which they hit, are effecting the 240s crash design. If the impact was a little lower, the bumper and bumper shocks would have taken the impact better. In this and some other front smashed 240's ive seen, the impact is going over the top of bumper and shocks. Just an observation. Maybe im seeing the wrong crashed 240's.
