On my 82 turbo I have front coil overs, rear adjustable perches with 250 front and 200 rear springs. The shocks are Bilstein HD setup with the Rsport shock values from Dave Bartons web site. Using 25/25 bars. The rear of the car feels great and is very predictable. The front feels bad sometimes pogo sticking on various bumps. Although the damping feels ok. Next up is the basic version of Bne upper strut mounts and some 325lb front springs. According to the motion ratio that should be a more balanced setup.
1982 242 turbo. 338k miles. MVP coilovers and 3" exhaust. Flowed 405 with a V15. Cossie turbine housing with upgraded compressor housing. 90+, IPD remote oil filter. Some other goodness, too. Been lots of fun over 25 years. Restored in 2k. Now ready for a 2nd restoration.

1993 245 Classic, 430k miles, enem V15. IPD bars and chassis braces. Simons sport exhaust from Scandix. sbabbs ezk chip. Been a good road warrior. Genuine Volvo rebuilt leaky M47.
