I'd definitely pursue the VW beetle/bus roof rack clamps. There are a few guys on thesamba.com who make clamps and complete racks who would gladly sell you a few.

So for now I've decided to go with a B21 in this thing. We've had this one laying around the garage for close to 25 years. It came out of my 79 262c bertone, and it was originally swapped into that, so I'm not sure what it came out of originally. https://pbase.com/mikejr/1979_volvo_262c


A year ago my dad gave the B21 to Jared, who painted it and did some polishing.

But he ended up not using it so we got it back, and now it will go in this 245. I've also decided to put the Jenvey Heritage DCOEs on it. I bought a B21 DCOE manifold and fit everything up.

Nice, I forgot you had those. Do they require any special engine management or can they be made to work with the current set up ?

Can't wait to hear the induction noise. I'm sure it's tempting to run them open but if it were me I'd consider some sort of airbox or at least a large common filter element.

The PV has a loud exhaust, but at lower RPM's (like below 3500 rpm) there's more snarl from the carbs than there is from the exhaust.

I’ll probably just run a pipercross or ITG type filter. I’ll wait and see how much clearance I have with the brake booster

One of those ITG filters shaped like a loaf of French bread is what came to mind. My friend/shopmate runs one on his Alfa GTV and it looks pretty sweet actually.

Yeah I'll need to get one of these blank plates, and drill the holes to the correct spacing

I machined the hole spacing for my jenvey itb. looks like your using the same intake manifold. Your bodies must be 48mm? They have prints of dimensions of all their bodies on their website. I did give them my sketch since they told me they never done a 8v redblock itb backplate before.

Nice! I like your set up. Did you get yours running or are you still building it?
