Default cuteeeee

found this while poking around the trunk of a volvo while at the junkyard today. Seems like someone unbolted and then left it because it was fubar.
Its from a older twin turbo volvo i believe.

One mans junk is another mans treasure, it's soo small and cute i just had to get it The poor thing is trashed but still a nice paper weight for my desk.

I,ll throw up some after pics once I finish cleaning out my sandblaster.


A comparison shot next to my 2554

Another shot to show how teenie it is hehe, about the size of a krispy kreme dounut

That is nifty.

And the turbo going on my riding mower this winter is bigger than that.

probably off an s80 or xc90 6 cyl twin turbo setup. They are mighty small to pack that instant punch, Volvo's were never known for their high output, but they are quick off the line.

Thats the T25 that is now on my miata. It boosted.. but you had to rev the crap out of it.

We are currently working on putting a turbo off of a kabota diesel 3 deck toro mower onto a OHV tractor. Ill post pics next week. Talk about a small turbo!!!!
