Right well a bit about myself i have grown up with Volvos from an early age, i am now 20 years old and this 340 is my first car, It started off as a stock looking 1.4 car which i bought for £127 with a collapsed front strut.

Anyways much changes later it now has a 2000cc 16V williams clio engine in the car with ported and polished head, and manifolds. and chipped ECU, car has a 2.5" downpipe and a 2" exhaust system which exits in front of the rear wheels. The car is approx 175BHP at the moment on stanadard Camshafts and will keep up with Skidracer's MK4 NA Toyota Supra.

I have made my own brake setup on the car and fitted rear disks with sierra Calipers and the front upgraded to 280mm vented disks with Impreza Turbo calipers.

I have built my own coilovers for the front suspension using 200sx top mounts and toyota MR2 inserts. The rear has adjustable spax dampers and has been dropped 40mm. Various Cosmetic changes have been made to the car including the compomotives and factory front spoiler and side skirts.

All work has been carried out by myself.

I roughly followed your engine swap thread on 300mania and I have to say, the overall result looks minty fresh. Loving the Renault 16v and the sidepipe, mate ;)

 

Oh, and with all those parts from different cars, you can't really call it a Volvo any more :D

looks like a very clean and good job.

you should consider painting inside your headlights.. you know the white plastic area.. just paint it matte black or the same color as the car.

 

In the 200 series, one can remove the reflector buy turning some plastic tabs and thereby painting it easily.. If you don't have this option, just mask the reflectors.

Well its about that time where the 340R gets an update, since i have had the car this will be its 3rd Evolution of major mods, hence EVO 3 lol

Basic plans are coilovers all round with Rosejointed 6link rear suspension including a watts link setup

New brakes including a bias peddle box with 280mm drilled and grooved vented front disks and same spec 273mm rears

All inner arches will be stripped back to bare metal etched and re stonechipped

Rebuilt gearbox with quickshift (LSD in Pipeline and very close....)

And a stronger Engine build with Vernier pullies, Cams and Remap And oversize inlet valves

 

So once the white car is on the road it all will begin properly, original plans are to get it all turned around for PPC in the park but its going to be stupidly tight.... Fingers crossed

 

So anyways some teaser shots to keep you all going.....

Enjoy

Adam
