I've been building it for a decade. I autocrossed it all original, about 20 seconds slower than the next slowest car. Things just progressed from there, all iron 383 with a Q-jet (ftw) then TFS heads and a roller cam. I broke every volvo diff I could find and had to go to a 9". Then I folded up the front suspension and retrofitted supra uneven A-arm stuff on it. A nasty 406 with nitrous and circle track front suspension went in. I took an air chisel to the fenders to fit 17" centerlines. I drove it "swamp buggy" style while I figured out how to make it fast. It got fast then I made it pretty (for a volvo...squint and it almost looks good). Now its got the ls, fresh paint, tunes, such a blast to drive!
