Conversion from Jetronic LH 3.2 to Motronic 4.3/4.4 Is it Possible?

Like the title says is it possible to go from Jetronic to Motronic? This theoretical discussion is going to use my 1995 Volvo 850 with a 2.4L 20V Engine, engine code B5254F(S?) with a manual transmission. I've been reading up on this idea for a few days but I haven't found anything that shows if any...

Re: Help me buy an 850!

Well, I bought the 850, running for $1k! I have also bought $1100 in stage-0 parts so far, $100 in an injector rebuild from a certain injector company in Houston with whom i'm very happy, new tires, etc. But I'm thankful for all the help here and all the guidance. Maybe i'll start a build thread w/...

Re: Trial balloon, update on T5M value from offer 7-2019

that dollar menue sounds disgusting ... Yeah it's a whole thing. But when you work 50+ hours a week sometimes it's all you have time for. My wife is on a $1 McChicken kick these days. You have to plan ahead to kick this habit, and get that toxic crap out of your menu. I dropped 25 pounds when I did...

Talk to me when you hit 350K. You'll still want to keep her if your left knee can deal with the clutch. That's why I blew my right knee. Hilarious :lol: I always say an item is worth what someone will pay for it. A dose of herceptin chemotherapy costs $42k. Charge what you think it's worth or what ...

Re: Smoking dipstick, could it be bad rings?

Don't send the oil fumes into the air cleaner before the MAF I was thinking a fresh elbow off the plastic intake before the throttle body. Full suction ahead. That idea is full of hot air and really sucks (vapors :D ). Do you think that overtime it might gum up the intake valves? Yes I do. But it's...

Re: Smoking dipstick, could it be bad rings?

Sorry if it seems like we are piling on, we aren't!! I hope you can get it fixed without too much hassle. 0. If you use quality line and a hard elbow like in tryingbe's post, there will not be a kink. Guaranteed! Doing that will eliminate this as a possible issue (you will be able to recall what li...

Re: Smoking dipstick, could it be bad rings?

Sorry if it seems like we are piling on, we aren't!! I hope you can get it fixed without too much hassle. ... I cannot recall if I used heater hose or fuel line. I made the line slightly too long so there wouldn't be a kink, but not so long that it bunched up. Now after 20,000 miles who knows if th...
