Volvo 944 Former Police Car - Dedonutified
Hello!

This thread is about a former Swedish Police Car, which is about to join the dark side Wink
I'm a university student, so the budget is limited. Luckily for me, i have a lot of Volvo junk laying around.
The goal is to have a fun car to ride this winter, hopefully it will get some HPs aswell.

Specs:
Engine: B230FT
Turbo: T04e
Bottom end: Stock
Camshaft: Custom made
Headers: Custom made
Intake Manifold: Building one atm
ECU: Vems 3.3
Injectors: Precision, 889 cc/min
Ignition: Distributorless, Bosh Motorsport Coils
Gearbox: m46
Clutch: Sachs Race Engineering 768 228mm and a sinter six pad.

The car:

The "new" engine (and the old) I had to buy due to the piston failure in the old

Preparing the new engine
The head:

And efficiency you shall earn:

Top-Decking the block:

~0,42 mm was taken off the block

We call this color Viagra blue. It will make the engine last longer.

Looks good?

That's all for now. But I'm working on it, so there will be more pictures later.
If you think some picture is missing, ask for it maybe i have one!

Thx!!

Nope, it´s made by a guy i know. The exhaust channels haven´t been touched though so that´s the next step if we won´t get enough ponnys with the current setup Beer Cheer

A launch movie is coming up! First test with the VEMS box, that´s when we blow the pistons (old motor) Headbang

Works well (it´s a bit tricky throwing 2nd gear from 1st, but when it comes to race/dragrace I start at 2nd), though the fifth gear does not really grip on tarmac. I don´t know how it´s in the states but here in sweden the junkyards almost tosses them at you, 50$ for a m46 is ordinary price so I´d rather change gearbox every once in a while than buying a beemer zf dogbox or something that can stand a little rough treatment better ^^

i have a couple M40... and will be going to an M45 next, behind my turbo b20. they're cheap/easy to get/nobody seems to want them.
i paid $40 for the M45, $50 for an M40 that looked brand new.

stronger option here is a T5 from a mustang or camaro... around here i see them for about $400usd for one needing a rebuild. with the swap parts and the rebuild, figure maybe $700 or so at least. that'll buy me a lot of Mxx trans that i can swap in 45 minutes Smile

Yeah it´s a waste of money if you don´t get tired of switching Mxx boxes ^^

Yeah all we need to do now before startup is the wastegate flange, intake plenum and a bracket for the steering assist (somewhere else, thinking of a bracket from 240 ontop of the generator?)
