I drove it a while set up that way, then decided to get a little more serious with the car.  I brought it into the basement at work, and set to work.





I commenced tearing down the car:



And stripping the sound deadening:





I also traded the Holley Systemax intake for a Victor 5.0:

Starting with some secondhand yet new Ebay shorty headers and a few 2.5" U bends, I commenced fabricating the new exhaust:

And hung a Garrett TV6201 turbo off of a fire truck that I traded some used roller rockers for, and popped new bushings and seals into:



My buddy Stu looks on with disdain as I dummy up the turbo:



I mounted the battery and kill switch:





And bought a reject 4" exhaust from a local semi shop for $20 to hack up into a downpipe:

I also bought an intercooler off of ebay for $60 and mounted it in front of the radiator:



I found this oil filter canister off of a 1940 Packard in the parts pile:



After a little welding, cleaning, painting, and modifying, the oil filter became an oil/air seperator:





To congratulate myself I treated myself to a boost-referencing fuel pressure regulator:

I was not making sufficient progress at work, as I seemed to always be, well, working while I was there.  I dragged the car home, tore it down again, and commenced carrying on again:





That pretty well brings you all up to date.  The car is quite a work in progress, and needs many hours and dollars before it will be going down the salt.  I realize my little Volvo build is not on the same level as most of the cars on this forum, and I am humbled to post among giants.
