There were no 122 (Amazon) two door wagons made by Volvo as far as I know. There's been a couple built custom here and there.

This is really awesome dude. The renderings are perfection. I like your Idea for making the motor fit the aesthetic of the car. That sounds like an awesome challenge! Keep it up!

OK guys, I know it's not gonna be enough of an update for most of you, but I'm still waiting for stuff to show up. From the powder coater, from the plater, from Summit and Jegs, but here's what I got done on a lazy 4th of July afternoon.

K, I'm gonna use hard line for all my vacuum lines, I'm gonna re-brake line the whole car and I'll be using hard line for fuel. Everyone sells their tube in coils and I **** that. I know there are professional tube straighteners available, but with $200 being the cheapest I've found I decided to make my own. For 1/4" to start, but I'll make another for 3/16" and 3/8" later. for less than $25 I built a straightener that works pretty well.

I started with a piece of flat stock and some sliding glass door rollers.



I used a piece of 1/4 round bar to make sure the wheels were aligned and the cut the flat bar and drilled some holes.





Two halves bolted together.



I spaced the first and last roller so they would fit outside the jaws of my vise. You have to hand straighten the first 4" or so then feed it in and roll it back and forth till it straightens out to your satisfaction.





Did some more assembly on the engine. Got new seals in and the front cover on, got the header on with the wastegate and ran some hard lines for it. I'm gonna mount the boost control solenoid under the intake, so I just ran the lines that direction for now. Yes, I know copper will work harden as it shakes/vibrates, etc. I promise to keep an eye on it and see what happens. LOL.







That's all I've got for now. Sorry.

Adam

I designed a logo for my friend that makes some serious Volvo parts then I engraved some aluminum weld on plates and plasma cut some stainless weld ons for the headers he builds.

Ok, put the wastegate on the right way. Got the intake back from powdercoat and the daily use valve cover too. Also got in the acorn nuts for the valve cover.
