just thought i'd show pics of my Volvo project, must say she isn't a patch on some of the other stuff here but i like her. She's a 1994 Volvo 850 T-5 which i've had for 12years now. She started off as my daily drive but with the price of fuel going up & the mods growing i decided it was time to go diesel & have the T-5 for a 1/4mile toy

got quite a few mods & pushing around 300bhp, current best is 14.557@99.1mph but that was with full interior & small turbo so that should be smashed when she's finished.

thanks for looking, Duane

got all my MSD fully fitted & wired up now, thanks for all the help & putting up with my annoying questions

i've wired a relay & secondary rev-limiter to a clutch switch, so when your sat at the start line holding the biting point the system swops to the blaster coil without the 6A & holds the revs at 3.5krpm(ish) to get the perfect start. Once the clutch is fully open then it reverts to the 6A. I did think about trying both coils firing at the same time but guessing that would be a bad idea lol

again thanks for all the help
