    240 barn (driveway) find

    If all goes to plan I`ll be having a 83 244 to play with.

    It`s a 1 car owner from new with 188k miles, It hasn`t moved or been started for 10 years

    It has some rust on the bottom of the spare wheel well, n/s rear wheel arch and on the bottom of the front passenger door.

    All of these areas just give it some character.







    The plan would be first to get it to start and stop then slam it to the floor and fit some deep dished steel rims.

    Engine wise either a 940 redblock or 850 whiteblock.

    1996 850 T5 AWD - Self tuned M4.4 ECU with COP`s, B5254T ( S60R internals in a 850 block ) ostrich 2.0 , green injectors, K24 turbo with a 6+6 compressor wheel, 3.25" MAF, top mounted Dump Valve, RN Exhaust manifold, 3" downpipe with 200 cell cat, 2.75" Stainless exhaust, Brembo calipers, S60R brake discs, stainless RIP kit, 3" Throttle body,

    This looks like it could be interesting, plenty of sideways action.
