Hej,

Cool to find a new Volvo forum with a 400 series part.
I own 2 Volvo 480 GT Turbo cars.
1 is a 95 standard 480 with 38.000 km full opitions in mint condition which I have put away to become a classic.
the other is my beauty:
The beast. A full race setup 93 Volvo 480 GT Turbo, modified engine and body to withstand track forces.
It runs 1.8 bar boost @ 3200 RPM and gives 325 BHP @ 5400 RPM.

Wow! Thanks for posting. If you want to post photos of it or specifics on what you've done to it, race results, or anything else please do.


thanks

Hej,

Went out racing this weekend.
Did ok... overall result 3rd place.
Just an industrial track day, nothing special.
But when I drove home, my A/F suddenly went lean and the engine stopped.
Have to lift the head and see if there is a hole in 1 of the cylinders. Hope not.
My main idea is the fuelpump or regulator popped.
But there is alot of work comming :(

just read your post on youre 480 turbo and had to take a minute to say, nice car, looks mint, my mate had a white one running just over standard boost with a decat and filter and that was quick but 325bhp deserves an award m8. keep up the good work !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


you car sleep in your car but you cant drive your house
