I am suffering severe racing withdrawals. Last time I raced a car was 10 years ago when my 1st daughter was 2 years old. That was a 1977 Cadillac Coupe Deville in a 75 lap enduro. I am actually at a point that I feel depressed. I have been collecting cheap parts for a challenge build for many years. I got a free 1991 Volvo 745 turbo 3 years ago but have yet to do anything to it. I am going to do everything in my power to make it work this year. Every year I read about the challenge and hate myself for missing it. With some luck I’ll bring my wife an the old GS400 as well. 

That being said, if anyone has anything that could help the 745 in the performance department let me know. I’m really well versed in these cars already. I have a 531 head that had a destroyed #4 exhaust port that I picked up for $20. I used my neithbors lathe and mill and made an aluminum sleeve for that port and bored the port for a tight fit. Next job is to weld it. One of my cousins in Sweden picked up a VX3 cam for me for $75. Got am MS2 for $200 with everything. Next up is some China bay H beams and some ARP studs.

Can't help you much but if you have a MS2 would you be willing to sell your factory computer?  Trade maybe since the car was free?  I'm assuming it can be used in a +T application.

We can definitely trade for something if you really want to. I will be ditching just about all of the Volvo electronics

Set aside anything you don't want and let me know.  If you need something for your build I'd be willing to trade.
