I actually have a project lined up for it now. So I have jumped in and got the hardware, assembled the board, and sorted the firmware and started playing with tuner studio, and even though I have only just started, I feel I have already learnt a fair bit.
I now need to assemble the VR conditioner and do some initial testing to check everything is working properly.
The Project - Volvo 960 T6 conversion
I have a bit of a Volvo problem, I seem to end up collecting them. anyways, I have a 2001 Volvo s80 T6, and I have a 1992 Volvo 960 estate, I think you can work out where this is going..
So the plan is to run the T6 motor with the speeduino, wasted spark, paired injectors. I will dump the twin turbo setup in favor of a single turbo. I would like to mount the speeduino in the bosch motronic ECU housing and wire into the pins, using as much of the existing wiring loom as I can get away with. There are of course many things to consider and a number of hurdles to jump, but hopefully I can get it running and have a bit of fun with it. I plan to document what I do here and hopefully others can throw in their experience.
My first question: Has anyone done this before on this engine or similar? Perhaps there are some good links to other forum entry's, or other peoples projects?
I know the T6 conversion if fairly popular among volvo enthusiasts, So hopefully I can draw from the resources available online to get my project off the ground.
Here is a picture of the Beast!
Should make a decent sleeper I think. No one will suspect that roof rack!
Sorry about the photo bucket watermarks, I will get some better hosting sorted for future snaps.
