Got those measurements on the Volvo intercooler:

  • The core is 17.75" wide (between end tanks) by 17" tall by 1.25" thick
  • The inlet and outlet are ~ 2.25" ID with 2.625" OD
  • The end tanks (other than inlet and outlet) are 2.25" thick
  • Overall the intercooler is 29" wide at the top and 23.25" wide at the bottom

Volvo part number 1317319 - Charge Air Cooler. You can pull up some more pictures of it if you google "Volvo 1317319".

Quick internet research shows it came on the cars below. (Might be helpful for connecting hose parts or junkyarding)

  • 1981-1984  Volvo 240 2.1l Fuel Injected Turbo
  • 1985-1992  Volvo 740 2.3l Fuel Injected Turbo
  • 1984-1990  Volvo 760 2.3l Fuel Injected Turbo
  • 1989-1991   Volvo 780 2.3l Fuel Injected Turbo
  • 1991-1993   Volvo 940 2.3l Fuel Injected Turbo
  • 1991-1992   Volvo 940 SE 2.3l Fuel Injected Turbo
  • 1992            Volvo 960 2.3l Fuel Injected Turbo

It's yours for the $35 I paid for it plus shipping if you decide that you want it.

Inlet/outlet are metric size, but 2.75" couplers/clamps fit.  That's what I'm running on my Volvo.

Got a bottle of crown royal and a globe shaped beverage dispenser for a door prize.  I don’t drink.  Carli got work lights, i would trade her but she doesn’t drink either.  What’s the street value of crown royal to someone who I won’t ID?

In reply to Dusterbd13 :

I had hoped to make it to Pat's since I'm just an hr away but it wasn't in the cards. Sorry to have missed the opportunity. 

I presume you witnessed his $2018 and I know you're sworn to secrecy but if it were me, just seeing that would have been worth the drive up from SC.

fyi you left the big stupid truck muffler, there goes your 50 cents of recoup

that’s the most fun I’ve ever had pulling an almost thousand pound engine/trans combo from a rotten truck.  Also you got to witness just how cool my dad is when i’m helping him get stuff out of his way.

That’s what my dad wanted for it.  I do recall posting it at some point.  

I did give his dad a distributor for Christmas but there are no challenge implications there.  Everything listed is something any of you could have had if you were standing there in my garage.

Dad and i realized that we forgot it about 200 yards from his driveway.

 

And it was fun. Not nearly as bad as i was expecting. Your dad seems like a pretty cool guy as well.

The build thread on the 65 Chevelle convertible will be coming in a couple months. I need to clear out some space, rearrange the garage, and get the 944 ready to be on the road before autox season. The Chevelle is the next project on my list.

 

Thank you again to Michael and his dad for pulling and delivering the power plant.Thank you again to Patrick for the 454 and transmission. I cannot say good enough things about all of them. 

I can't wait to see the Miata in person. That V6 will be a beast in this car!

so dad and I wanted to get to Ohio to pick up our engine from Patrick before it snowed. Friday morning, 5 am, we left his place pointed north. We had worked out a deal to pull a 454 and trans from a REALLY rusty Chevy 4500, load it up, and deliver it to another forum member in exchange for our gas. So we loaded up some tools (not enough), some thermal gear (also not enough), some grubby clothes, and hit the road. Smooth sailing to Ohio, and a WONDERFUL time with dad. Didn't take many pictures of the drive, but a nice time of year to do this.

we got to Patrick's about 3:45 or so, just as he had finished DRIVING the 454 truck onto the concrete. The three of us hit it hard, and we had the engine on the ground and the truck ready for the scrap run by 7:00 pm. Hell of a lot of fun, but after the sun went down it got cold in a hell of a hurry. Dad and I aren't used to that anymore, as we've been south of the mason dixon for 20 years. I was also reminded by how blessed we are as far as rust is concerned. I negotiated some El Camino parts, as well as the 3 inch exhaust from the 454 truck for the challenge car.

 

Saturday morning, dad and I followed Patrick over to his dads place where his dad had already gotten the 3500 hung on the bucket of his tractor with a rope and ready to load. His Dad also found some long tubes off of something that I bought purely to cut up for making headers for our car. We got everything loaded, bought some leftover turbo parts from Patrick after loading up everything, and headed to summit racing. It was only 30 minutes away.

summit racing is a very awesome and bad place at the same time. At the Tallmadge Ohio location, they had roughly 2 dozen racks of discounted and scratch and dent parts. No rhyme or reason to how its organized, and it was 25% off day. Challenge car wise, we scored 4 3 bolt exhaust flanges (think SBC header collector flanges) with a 2.5 hole for 9 bucks after discount. The plan is to use them on the header to crossover pipe junction. Speaking of exhaust, we also were able to retain the y pipe off the big block which uses 2.5 tubes into a very nice collector that turns into 3 inch. I think this should be perfect for the turbo flange/piping. We also got a turn down and glasspack in the deal. I apparently didn't take a picture of the boost gauge, and to be honest im not quite sure where it wound up....

 

Pictures of exhaust and sacrificial headers:

dad and I got home at 9pm Saturday night. 40 hours round trip, 1100 miles, and 168 in diesel. And a fantastic time with my dad. Time I wouldn't trade for the world.

 

We got all the parts and stuff unloaded and organized Sunday after church. I took dads truck to deliver the big block, came back to his place, and got the 3400 mounted to the stand. Hit it, and dads truck, with superclean and a pressure washer to get the worst of the grime off both.

got done with that, jumped in the El Camino, threw the boom tubes from last years challenge car in the bed, and proceeded to turn them into boost goodies in a trade in Winston Salem.

Blow off valve (I think)

the turbo:

up next is figuring out just what I have as far as the turbo goes. In theory, its what it says it is. But, I want to verify that it will work well enough for what I want before I go to the trouble of installing it. It is physically a lot smaller than I thought it would be, but the price was right. For you turbo guys: how do I determine if its what I need/want? Is there a way to measure things to verify what it is/size/ability to work with this application? I was originally hunting an hx35, but this deal seemed too good to turn down. Intercooler alone was worth 25 bucks. Also, what exactly is the silver thing? I was told its a blow off valve, but it looks more like a blower bypass valve than anything else. This is the first time I have ever even held a turbo in my hands, so please forgive the ignorance.

I think a blower bypass valve and blow off valve would be the same thing.  They both get rid of excess pressure when the throttle is closed.
