If you go to the yard and find a Denso on a Volvo, it will be 100 amp. If it's a Bosch it could be 100A or not, depending on lots of things. As far as I know, all the Denso's were 100 amp. I have one...

I just re-read the launch control paragraph. The "brake" is usually a handbrake or a line lock that prevents the car from rolling at the staging line. It's not the brake pedal.

It's doable, but it'll end up being kinda lazy around 40-80 mph. You'll never get any "top speed" out of a 240. They hit a serious wall around 100 and it takes cubic dollars to get past that.
