the motor is the big project, once i get my twin turbo setup working well, ill start on some of the other areas of the car, but i want it drivable turbo-ed so i can go to new england dragway this summer first, and see what kind of times it will pull... i hope to be one of the first people on the east coast to build a twin turbo V8 volvo.... i havent seen or heard of anyone doing it in the past, but if someone knows of someone who has, point me in their direction please, i would like to know how it worked for them.
