Volvo B20F engine with mechanical K-Jet fuel injection and M40 manual transmission.

The odometer shows ~70,000 miles but is likely incorrect (it did not work when the car was purchased in 2020).
Driven approximately 1,000-1,500 miles since purchase in November 2020, the engine has always been reliable and run well. Finnicky seat belt ignition interlock system or dead battery were the only causes of no-start. Drives and idles well, tachometer installed to monitor RPM's (easily removed).
