    13s for 1300, Beige Volvo content.

    1975 244GL, bought on Ebay for $200 earlier in the year - fucked motor (was supposed to be a blown head gasket, more like broken rings and/or ring lands). Came with a supposedly good B21 motor (carby version of what's in there, with a smaller cam and less compression).

    I bought it for the good grille and headlight surrounds for my 242, and will also swap the guards, bootlid and bumpers.

    Some boring photos:









    Plans:
    740 turbo exhaust manifold ($45 from Pick'n'Pull).
    Sad high-flow S5 RX-7 turbo ($50): http://i46.photobucket.com/albums/f1...eb10-12038.jpg
    Chinese intercooler Ebay intercooler ($75 from local classifieds website).
    740 Turbo intake manifold & injectors ($50 from P&P).
    Shitty old MTX8 from my old RX-7 with two fuct ignition drivers ($50).
    Hyundai Excel double ended coils to make it work with only two ignition drivers ($20).
    Oil fittings and stuff ($80).
    Accumulator mods to BW35 autobox. Maybe shitty old bent fins stall converter if it needs it ($0).
    Locked diff ($0).
    15x8 widened 140 steelies:
    . Hard, old circuit semi-slicks might stay, depending on what the rules end up being. ($50 for two).

    Injectors might be undersize - if so, I'll fit S4 RX-7T injectors (+$100).

    Best bit is that I already own all of that shit, so its only gonna cost me oil and time.

    Current 'spend' = $620 if Volvo injectors work OK.

    Currently loving this sick. Didn't even occur to me that 740 turbos still run a B23. This cunt will never die.

    Needs bulk cheap skate side pipe for proper 80's touring car hektikness.

        Interesting. Early entrant for the trophy awarded to 'most change left over' from "13's for $1300".

        So these things unopened respond ok to boost?

          The later B230s have steel crank, pissy little rods, blah blah and there's a guy with 250kW+ from an unopened one. He's got a good turbo & Motec but the point is that the motor copes.
          B21s have big forged crank, beefy rods, and thicker bore walls.

          Similarly, there's plenty of Swedes (erm... the ones from Sweden who say 'bork bork bork') and Norwegians with 500hp+ from stock bottom ends and J-pipe turbo adaptors and stuff...

                  About 1250kgs stock.
                  The DL model (base spec) was 1220kgs with air con, so I'm figuring that 1200kgs is realistic.

                    When I first saw the 13s for $1300 idea, i thought that something Volvo could be a dark horse. Then I started wondering about Spac's yard and quickly started thinking about other things.

                    Should be a good thing...

                      My heart lies with Valiant, but the smart money lies with the Volvo.

                      This should be fun.

                            subscribed. I await progress shots which should also include a bowling hat and tissue box of some sort.

                            what's that white two door thing parked next to the beige warrior?
