Volvoghini, a 240 with 2JZ... soon to be Lambo V8

How to go faster, stop quicker, and turn harder. Chips, exhaust, larger turbos, bigger/slotted/drilled rotors, high performance brake pads, manual boost controllers, performance shocks/struts/springs, airbox mods and more! Also discussion on HID and Xenon lights, aftermarket foglights and other exterior lighting.

Help keep MVS on the web -> click sponsors' links here on MVS when you buy from them.
Also -> Amazon link
. Click that when you go to buy something on Amazon and MVS gets a kickback.

Out-standing! Why are all these insane projects always coming out of Sweden?

He must have engineering training.

He's an aviation technician IIRC. You can see a cockpit in the background of his workshop videos!

Winters in Sweden are long, cold and dark. Not much else to do than work on a car inside your garage during that period. There are tons of classic old American cars in Sweden that looks better than new. Just driven a bit during summer, if it doesn’t rain. Wouldn’t be surprised if we start buying back the cars from Sweden soon!
