I recently purchased a 1984 SVO from its original owner. The car is
in real nice condition with under fifty thousand miles. The owner left
the country for a while and had the car stored for several years. On his
return he found that storing the car as he had, the motor smoked badly.
He hunted around and found a local who is familiar with these cars and
hired him to do a complete engine rebuild. After the rebuild was started
the rebuilder tried on several occasions to talk the owner into modifing
the engine. On all attempts the owner declined. After the owner got the
car back it ran beautifully but, everytime he got into the turbo, it
would go into over boost and shut down. The rebuilder swears he didn't
alter the boost rate.
Well the problem is mine now and I am looking for some help in
As I said, the car runs great until you get into the turbo. When it
gets into overboost, it shuts down.
What do you think guys???
