Dave's Volvo

Well, SoDak just keeps on chugging along so I guess I have to live vicariously through other Volvo owners. Dave is rebuilding his D24T and is looking for some serious power... He used a stock headgasket and stock headbolts. I'm very jealous of his squeaky clean block. Here it is with its guts removed. And now they're back in!

Something I definitely don't have the courage to do- take apart my turbocharger...

He's shooting for 140 hp :)

I'm honored you posted pics of my D24t engine. Well it's up and running and it runs great. I've been trying to get the bugs out of it. I have to say the total seal rings seem to be doing it's job, very little if any blow-by coming out of the valve cover breather. I didn't bother putting the breather hose on and the valve cover has stayed clean for 200 miles. I also have a D24, and the whole engine compartment would have oil sprayed on it if I did that for 5 mins let alone driving for 200 miles. wastegate is bad so I have to replace it but i've been very pleased with the results so far.
