The Starla/Walker exhaust kit for the 1989-1992 Volvo 740/940 cars with the B234F 16-valve engine that ships from FCP Euro as of 2017 is not a direct factory replacement. The factory exhaust is 2.25" all the way back from the catalytic converter through the mufflers and out the tailpipe. The current Starla-Walker kit has the correct 2.25" pipe inlet for the resonator (coming out of the catalytic converter), but then it changes diameter and leaves the resonator at only a 2" pipe. The downstream over-axle pipe, muffler, and tail pipe are also 2" instead of the 2.25" they should be. Does this matter? -yes, for the 16-valve engines it does. They breath much heavier than the standard 8-valve B230F engines and the smaller pipe reduces flow by 25%. The previous owner to my 1990 740 GLE wagon 16-valve (B234F) raced from a standing start against his other 1990 740 Turbo wagon (B230FT) when both cars were less than a year old, empty, and a single occupant in each. The 16-valve wagon pulled ahead by about 5 car lengths until about 60 mph when the turbo wagon passed it. Do you really want to reduce the exhaust flow by about 25% on this car? In summary, the kit shipping in 2017 from FCP Euro for the 16-valve B234F engines can be installed on the car (correct shape of the parts), the kit has a lifetime warranty, but it's 25% more restrictive than the exhaust that Volvo intended to have on this car. You might want to try to buy a turbo exhaust kit and an adapter to reduce the 2.5" turbo pipes down to the 2.25 cat exit pipe.
