Hey everyone,

My name is Will and I live in Columbia, MD.

I just recently bought a new iTouring 3 hatchback after my 91' Volvo 240TIC was totaled head-on by a speeder.

A little bit of history. I joined the Volvo performance club, Turbobricks back in 07 and have since taken a 90 hp grocery getter and turned it into a 190hp heap of 2.3l RWD Swedish fun. I did a full trans and rear locking axle swap, added a turbo w/ full 3" exhaust, interior re-upholstery, stereo revamp, full poly bushed, Bilstein suspension with 25mm sways, firewall to strut braces, track rods, etc. I was just getting ready to put a new motor into it, but had the rug pulled from under me.

I bought this car after testing numerous others, and have to say that I'm really loving it. The technology and smoothness of the ride goes against everything I was used to with my Volvo. I would love to meet up with you guys sometime and talk shop and see what you all have done to your rides to make them unique!!

Also, does anyone know a good source for a CAI :tongue::tongue::tongue:
...just kidding

Welcome to the forums! Be sure to post pics of your car! I'm not too far away from you, so maybe I'll see you around.

Hey Thanks! I'd love to join. It'll make driving a more 'common' car more enjoyable with some fellow enthusiasts.

I live in the Oakland Mill's area. I'll keep an eye out.

Thanks for that. I'm eager to get my hands dirty with this one, but within the boundaries of the warranty, WHICH IS TOTALLY UNHEARD OF FOR ME!!!

And again :welcome:

Thanks for all the welcomes everyone. Looking forward to being more of an active member here.
