Default 242 build , next one "bumperless"

242 Build , next one "bumperless"
this is my 1984 242 turbo Story . Factory 4 speed with overdrive and turbo 2.3 .
The day when I piked it up from red hook area upstate ny . Lots of rust .
Paid $500 for it . That was July of 2012


and sweet interior, There was more hornt's nests inside then then car had gears

So when I got it I decided that will go with 16v on b230 block. I used 91 780 with 88k and 1900 740 head with 100k.
Plus mustang tranny , got T5 out of 2.3 . price was great so I bought it plus it was all fresh inside

First I replaced 3 out of 4 floor panels.
Some idiot inserted expending foam in to rocker panels and clogged all the water drain holes. That was fun to remove .
I came across hundai tiburon interior for $100 so I bought it all and it almost fit. So little mounting poins modification and it worked out perfect






Dynamat all over the place . I still have to add more , that will be done in next 2 weeks




After floor and interior was done I moved to rear section .
There was lots of rust in the back . So it had to be all cut out






Two more interior shoots


And then getting it ready for a fresh paint job



rolling out , from spray booth



All assebled with the new 16'' wheels on




Now engine , tranny and harness
head got crawn vic , valve springs and total rebuild



Block is bone stock with notches made for pistons


I shorten the distributor , and breather can


Turbo is k24 from AMG mercedes engine with k24 s60r housings . Yes porsche mercedes they used all the same turbochargers , but differend housings




This was very time consuming process . Wire harness conversion . I used huge 780 harness and got rid of 75 % of it



Engine test runs on the stand


In the mid time rx7 front calipers


Now engine and tranny swap
OUT!!!!

and in

Tranny in with fresh crossmember

3'' in to 2.5'' exhaust , stainlees with magnaflow muffler

cheery red shifter

Hose for 3'' throttle body with cobra head hose .
Also 760 booster was installed



Engine bay done in 95% . I need to finish bracker for brake fluid bottle

Now trunk make over


and engine bay again



Looking good . Running 12 psi on blue T5 injectors , pulls great






Also I put fresh rear end with 3.31 grears and Locker , second set of caliper for ebrake operation ;) , fresh bushing everywhere


And Momo steering wheel that I bought at Carlisle momo pedal covers


I have nice set of recaro seat that will go in ,
And car will be much faster probably before end of this year .

Car looks awesome! That back bumper delete, on the other hand does not look good. Just my opinion though, from the front with the hood open it is awesome! and looks even better in person!

No lag , 12psi at 2400 rpms.
But rear tires are a little old so got to be really careful when it's wet .
Works for me

Loved this at Carlisle. Some variety in mods, which is nice to see. I found the rear odd, but not bad looking in person. Somehow it looks more meh in the pics here.

Ferrari wheels was a steel .
I did some research again .
It is a 3 piece wheels , made by Epsilon . Japanese company .

http://www.stanceworks.com/forums/sh...ad.php?t=40433

the same wheel with gold insert .
Fronts are 16x7 rears are 16x8
205/50/16 front and 225 /50/16 rear

Guy from South Carolina had them on ferrari 308 . I always do dirtycraig searches for rear stuff and that guy was changing his wheels to factory set up . Looks much nicer . So Epsilons where for sale . Price was $100 , I thought that per wheel . Called him up and after quick conversation he tells me that he wants $100 for all four of them .
I sent him $200 right a way thru paypal . He kept change from shipping and I have a sweet wheels for free .
Hub and offset are perfect for volvo . I have rx7 front calipers so I had to use 1/4 inch spacers in the front .
Drives like a dream
So Epsilon wheels with 5x108 pattern wheels are great for RWD volvos

Nice build! I have a feeling this may be my old 242... It looks like in the first photo there is a dent in the drivers side quarter panel, just behind the door. If so it may have been mine. I sold it to a guy in MA. Not sure how it could have ended up in Red Hook, but who knows.

Here's a photo from when I owned her. There was not a spec of rust at the time.... Just a big dent from a hit and run incident in Boston. It's amazing what a few years can do to a car.


If it is my old car, I'm glad it finally found a good home!

That dent was almost fixed right when I got it.
Paint was shinny when I got it but there was so much rust.
The rear seat had those 2 cracks ,where stitching went .
Also those manual mirrors I've never seen those before .

Also car is ready for electric mirror set up. Switches and wiring is all there
World is very small . Btw

Remove gate . Re clock it. And then use your imagination .
You might need to drill new hole for mounting point , plus I removed arm from gate relocated it and weld it back on.
K24 is great . quick spool 2500 rpms 12 psi in my casr , and it would probably hold 20 psi to redline
