I would like to find a 28mm front bar and replace the rear bar with a 23 or 21mm bar

I like your project :-)
I have a whiteblock 242 my self :-) Now soon twinturbo..
Not sure if I should get the motronic mapped, or if I should buy an Haltech E6X or maybe also megasquirt.. lol...

Hard to choose..
I know, MS is the cheapest, but it might wery well end up costing about the same as a e6x, if I dont map/install it my self, afaik. The cheapest would be mapping the motronic 1.8 (1400$ to map), while e6x installed will cost me about 2200$ and MS I guess costs me maybe 900$ + mapping, if I dont install it my self.

MS might be best as there are actually people running it... who already have good maps
I'd start with the poi's maps and just drive it a bunch while logging and do a few VE updates
you might maybe need 1-2 hours of dyno time to take the spark maps out a little

HD radio tuner is in, radio sounds so much better now
also got the PLX box into place, best wideband ever!

got some tuning done, messed with the accel enrichment a little though i think it actually needs a bit more fuel than i want to give it

i think i'm possibly declaring the stereo system as being done so details on the final iteration will come soon
though the rear 5.25's need replacing as one is mehh at this point

car is now in the hands of Badvolvo for the next year
he has some plans for it and should be able to get it over the 200whp level even on the totally stock motor just with tune and a better exhaust system

everything in there right now is all sorta temp for the turbo 6 motor
when that is ready I'm going to re-wire the chassis, and setup things far more proper and clean

So is this called the anti poi because it's dirty, non turbo, mostly stock, and not actually a 960?

it will be turbo, trust me, its not a 960 which makes it diffrent with the swap. the dirt washes off and this isnt the engine that will stay in this car.

Ship the car and related bits back out here and I will install when I am done with the 244.

Then you will have no excuse to leave your wagon behind in the states.

Well in four years if that's the only thing that's died then I think you should be happy.

Mom stopped using it... now has barn find status from the amount of dust on it....
I'm hoping to take 3 weeks off work in Aug/Sept 2018 and just attack it and get everything right again...

Needs like $2k tossed at it
New Tires, Change all fluids, replace Fuel pump & filter (swap to a walbro 255 intank and dump the external pump), T-belt kit with new WP etc... New Volvo blister pack of spark plugs and some custom and better fitting spark plug wires
Fix the trans controller, figure out whats wrong with the alarm and remote start, replace the head liner, redo the wiring to the rear of the car for the subwoffer
Have the one really really bent rim fixed... or find some other custom 17x8.5 rimps made up in the merc pattern
Alternative to fixing the trans controller... is just swapping in a M90... this is seriously tempting to me... paddle shift is cool and all but manual would just be simpler (with an D5 spec single mass clutch)
