I love that wagon. I codrove it in an autox where the shift *** fell off and then fell through a hole in the floor. One of the corner workers found it on course. Good times.

The Volvo: Damn ugly but very functional. I've got it down to ~2500lbs.

Engine: Fairly stock. It's a factory turbo and intercooler so it has the B21ft. The T of course stands for turbo and the 21 stands for 2.1L It's a very strong engine. Has forged rods and crank. The valves are sodium filled from the factory as well.

I've only changed the cam on the car. In Volvo land, cam swaps are cheap and easy. You can grab a cam from another car that was a canada model or european model easily. Even some US cars had desirable cams. My cam that was stock was a T cam. It's pretty worthless, only good for around town. It falls off the power at about 4500rpm. The cam I put in is called a K cam. It doesn't start putting on the hurt until about 5k. I advanced it 4degree and it's down to about 4k now. It's very nice.

The turbo is just a T3. It's on its last legs as I've been running 15psi out of it for a bit (car has 250k miles on it).

I changed the intake manifold on it to the n/a version. It flows much better than the stocker. I also am running a 3" exhaust.

The fun stuff: I'm running Koni yellows all the way around. 550lb springs up front and 350lb springs in the rear. 28mm solid sway bar and 17mm in the back. Camber plates will be going in soon. I also have firewall to strut tower bracing, strut tower bracing, and under chassis bracing. These are biggggg helpers. They tightened up the car a lot.

The Mazda: Again, it's the functional DD. It's tempting to mod to make faster but that's what the Volvo is for.

Stereo: I'm running CDT CL-62CF components all the way around. They're powered by a US Amps XT-800.4v3. It's 100w x 4 RMS. Ideally I should be running one of those for the fronts and one for the rear. The CDTs love power.

These are all being controlled by the factory head unit that goes to a AudioControl LC6. It works very well and that way I don't have to hack up the dash to put in an aftermarket head unit.

For subs I've got 2 RE Audio SE 10's. 2nd Best subs I've ever heard. Especially for the money and "power". They're rated for 300w RMS each @ 2ohm. They've Dual Voice Coil though, so I've got them hooked up to an old MTX Thunder HO which does 600w @ 1ohm. It's perfect!


Well that's all the details. I can go much more in depth on the Volvo of course, but that'll get too boring for the majority I'm sure.
