I hope so too!

I haven't found any reasons why I shouldnt be.A friend of mine had a the same camshaft in his 940 which hes has punished for over 10000 km without any trace on it.Valveclearance was was the same as when he installed it.

Last weekend I had a bit of time the play with the car and see how it runs with the new camshaft.


What can I say.......the best way to explane it is to imagine the car having 2 caracters.The first carater is that of of a friendly family sedan.Very smooth and easy to drive.Doesn't care about what the rest of the world thinks.The second caracter is best discribed as that from a sneaky sportsman.Loves the run quick and fast and sticks up a certain finger to everybody who doesn't recognize him for what he is.....

The car realy is much better now.Power comes in from about 1900 rpm.Power is more controlable than before.And because of the wider powerband it is a car that is much more suitable for everyday traffic.If you don't want or need the power it runs smooth and even better than the original B200.But.....if you want use its potential....its there.I tipped 200 km/h in fith gear ( I know ,highly illegal in Holland but who cares)and there was still no end to the power.Keeps pulling forward.The original "T"cam died in higher revs,the new one doesn't.

As a bonus,the car sounds much nicer now!

So yes....I am very satisfied.........The only problem is running when its cold.It needs a bit of time to start running smoothly.It sooms that its getting to much fuel when starting the engine whilst the engine is cold.See what happens if I disconnect the cold start valve tommorow.

Keep you posted...............

Sounds like a great camshaft, it is the FS265T right?  :)

Because of the fact that the engine runs badly when its cold I disconected the coldstartinjector..........It seems to be a lot better now   ;D

So we took a ride into Germany,which is only a few km's from here.Just to see what the camshaft does at top speed..............

look listen....and smile!

Really nice to here that the performance camshaft from Sweden works in Holland (and Germany) too  8)

Are you satisfied with the engine for now on?

I guess you could say I am happy with the way it runs now. Apart of some minor problems wich take a lot of time to fix,it runs ok. Considdering the fact that iit still runs on a slightly modified LE-jet ,I think it isn't going be much better.

I got another turbinehousing and wheel from a friend of mine. Planning on installiing that in a few weeks.

Well....its much more silent than before.With the sidepipe it was much louder.This sound nearly like a normal 360...with a little more lowtone.

Nice there Bart! A little hysteric under the bonnet but much easier to follow a blue lead among others, rather than the black snakes in the original snakepit ;)

Good for you with electric fan! And a good radiator is nice on hard trackdays I guess :)

More to come or will this racecar take a rest and await next season?

There is more to come..............don't worry.Long winterevenings are always good for some progress on things that have been stored on a side track like the discbrakes on the rearaxle and some other parts.

As I said....there is more to come.











This roll-over cage was used in car nr 429 that competed in the Volvo360 cup.That car was taken apart last spring.

I found a very interesting topic.... :o

http://www.volvo300mania.com/forum-uk/viewtopic.php?t=2009&highlight=speedo#p26720

....and thouhgt...."lets try that!"

So I looked for a cluster of a Volvo 440.....and found it. :)



Transfering the tacho is realy a piece of cake. The only thing that takes abit of work is that you will have to use the plexiglass from a 300 serie's tacho( the one of the 400 serie's is too wide).The indicator plate can be cut in shape easily because its very thin instead od of the plate on the 300 serie's tacho.Than just dril a 2mm hole....

 

....to fit the needlestopper and ready you are. Takes about 1 hour......if your not planning anything else.... :P

I used a cluster that I got e few months ago.It was a complete one but the revcounter didn't work.After checking it I found the breach in the 12v+ to the revcounter and fixed it.An to make it match with the rest of the car......I did a little restyling.......

No..they are from DNRT. Without these stickers a car can't compete in official races.

I found that the hood was getting to hot due to the heat of the turbo.







I still had a bit of an issue with my coolingliquidreservoir. I have used one of a 850 for a while but that didn't really satisfy. But as Always...if you wait long enough the rwright sollutions comes by........

 

Found this one on a Volvo 480Turbo on the scrapyard...........................................

After taking part in this years edition of the "Elandrun" I made a new "to-do-list". BTW ....great event.The track was very wet in the morning but as the rain stopped it dried up and it was  was  B I G  fun! :D
Klick on the picture


One of the things that piss me off is that I have to sit to close to the pedalls to have a good position at the steering wheel.But sitting so close to the pedalls is ideal at all on a circuit like Lelystad.They set out a realy great track with a nice mixture of fast and slow corners.That meens......work like an idiot to be fast.After my last round I decided to call it a day.My arms and legs where totally cramped.I never had that when I was racing my DAF 55 on the Nürburgring.In that car I made a new setup for the seats and adapted the steeringcolumm to it.So why not do it in the 360.Well..for starters.....the collumm in a 360 is completely different from the one in a DAF55. So.........let's look at it  and see what can be done.
I already had fitted a deep dish steering wheel but that 'wasn't enough.As the car is a 4 door saloon(so it was the smaller doors then a 3 door hatchback) I found out that putting an adaptor between the hub and the wheel caused a new problem.Due to the cage it's nearly impossible for me(I weigh 110 kg's :oops:  :oops:  :oops: )to get into the car.

Sollution.......detachable steeringwheel.....





Because of this hub(total length 6 cm's) the wheel doesn't come more towards you.....it also has a higher position...which I don't want.So the wheel has to come down.The columm  in my DAF 55 is fixed with 2 bolts to the frame behind the dash.So that is easy.Take the bolts out,get a spacer and 2 longer bolts and that is pretty much it.In a 3series it is a complete other thing.So I took out the collumm and cut off the top piece.....



...and welded in a tube..



looky look.....the difference between an original collumm and mine is 1,6 cm's



Refitted it looks like this.....



I took the car for a test drive and this realy feels much better.
