How did you handle mounts and pan clearances with the 1jz? Im currently fitting one to my 242 and would be interested to see how you did it... I modified the pan and pickup cause im using a rear (read mid) sump setup, which happens to occupy the same space as the crossmember. I can see it slightly in one of your photos, but I was wondering if you have more? also how far back did you get it? from your photos it looks like it sits WAY farther back than I got it to sit, my front crank pulley maybe has 2 inches clearance from the rad crossmember.

Any insight would be bawsome sauce!

This car isn't my style at all, but I really appreciate how you've executed your vision into something you really like and how you use it for what you want to do.

I want to know more about those front wheels. They are like the perfect weird Panasport but better thing that I'd love to have on the 122.

went out without power steering, blew 3rd after first corner and then rear turbo seized after the 3rd lap.

yep as about, 40mm extended LCAs, raised crossmember, extended rack ends, Ben's quick steer knuckles.... stock rack with shortened column... think I will ditch the power steering rack though and go manual.

Found another turbo, so just need to decide on what rack to run and will be ready for the next track day test haha will run it again missing 3rd and will do that over the end of year break

Have done much on this thing since the event.... well hadn't touched it till last weekend.

Put my front wheels back and tried getting some the toe out sorted but its maxed in and still needs to come in more... got an idea to sort it though.

Then had a play with my rear getting it to the height I want.... I need shorter shocks again :(

so I gave it a wash and tried some skirts on it... keen to see what some volvo fans think of them?






They still need some modding to work and also the car still needs front lip and rear diffuser

you ruined a perfectly ugly car. Remove that hideous mexican wannabe hipster hood scoop looking thing, take off those never will look good side skirts. But it's not my car so you can do whatever you want and I'm okay with that. Good thing you live across the pond and south of a equator.
