Nah trying to communicate with the Americans was impossible they just seemed to speak gibberish and when I finally got a straight forward answer they didn't want to post to the UK. With the import fees added on it was nearly £50 just for a boost gauge with no wiring, I'd recommend a VDO gauge to tie in with the other gauges.

Good news Logan, he still has the 940!

When do you want the flywheel? He said he will have it for a couple more months, I would have just emailed you but my emails are having a bit of a spaz atm.

update!!!!!!!!!!! some loom in car now. waiting on a mate to send up his spare for me to copy as some of mine is missing. looking for a flex plate, have a machinist lined up so work the 360 flywheel to fit the 2.4 system. until I can get the loom made and in nothing can be done. things left to do are the oil and water lines, exhaust, crank sensor, ic piping and then I get to fire her up. turbo. boosting. torque. has anyone had experience with a 13C on a 360 with factory clutch assembly?

Got a flywheel sussed here if you want it?
Means you won't have to worry about torque destroying your clutch.

cost plus weight plus spinning mass makes it the secondary option. unless it would cost less than £50 to send its a definant plan B

No worries mate, I'm going to buy it anyway just in case and if it's too much to post I'll just keep it in the garage, you never know when it might come in handy.

So after dam near a year since my old post, here's an update (hate not being able to do pics)

I can't say I have done much, I have however brought a 940 turbo 230ft donor, pulled the loom B pillar forward, as my old loom wasn't complete, and have started to install it. The side wiring is going to be tucked up out of sight under the engine bay bolt hokes for the guard, and I am going to have one small loom going straight to the motor from that grommet under the heater box.

I brought the 940 turbo primarily for the motor, sight unseen. When I received the car, I found my motor had siezed due to 2 cracks in the head, so whole motor was a loss.

Then managed to come across a good bottom end at a scrappy which is now the base for (as far as I know) the southern hemispheres only twin cam turbo Volvo 360. I'm unsure if I rebuild the 15G I have, or pinch 2 of my mates CT12 supra turbos. Twin turbo twin cam 360 does sound absolutely epic. Maybe 2 manifolds and down pipes, for change ability.

Gonna go pearl white, with the 16x7s, and a golf lip. Modest, but not quite an indicator of the near 200 ponies I hope to have under the bonnet.

Running goal is end of this year.

Is that a 940 loom that you will be using? If so, why not use a 240 loom instead, far more easier to work with than a 940 loom.
