    I haven't updated in a bit but I'm currently in the middle of installing a 320LPH AEM intank pump. I ran the wire upgrade last night. I need to hookup a additional relay. I'm still trying to figure out how to bypass the main pump since I only need one pump now instead of two. Hopefully this fixes my lack of fuel issue. Also the car got two new wheel bearings and a ball joint. I got a 12ton press from harbor freight and already got my money's worth out of it. Now it will probably collect dust until next time.

    How you like the press? Ive been thinking of getting one. I always need one (well until I have one then it will probably collect dust also).

    I really like it! It made the job so easy. Everyone wanted 100 dollars to press the bearings in which justified the press cost. Last time I did a ball joint on the car I used a hammer and a vice. It was 100x easier to do it with the press.

    I bypassed the mainpump over the weekend with M14x1.5 Banjo fitting, an8 to 1/2" barb and replaced my low pressure 12mm hose from the intank sender to the main pump under the car with 300psi fuel hose. Driving it for the first time today. So far so good.

    Sweet! I got on my car today and I have plenty of fuel now. I should of put a bigger pump in it sooner. Now I got to get the Cobra back on the road. Converting the 6g alternator to a 3G.

    It's fun to drive. I also don't mind putting miles on the car since the odometer broke 15 years ago,lol. I just hope for better times this year.

    I bet that car was making good power. 27 lbs of boost made a very underpowered car to decently quick car in my case. The head just doesn't flow well on these Volvo red blocks without a lot of work.

    Yeah it sure felt good. The heads flow really well, even untouched. It's got a borgS366, so it was making good power at that boost level.
    It seems like I remember guys doing a Volvo head swap onto the 4cyl mustang because of how much better they flow. Either way, I'm betting thats a fun car that surprises a lot of people!

    It's the Dohc head out of B234 Volvo that they are using. I have a sohc 530 head that could be modified more but still is using stock size valves. The Volvo drag cars running 6s in 1/4 run those Dohc heads @70 psi.

    My carrier bearing failed and shook my Volvo like there was no tomorrow. The shifter bolts even drop out from under the car because of it.

    I was heading home from work. Couple weeks ago.... It was a wake up call. I still have a knocking noise going on when in gear. I have to figure out why it's doing that now.
