****Update , found a good 1998 S70 T5 instread of the 850****
Hello , this is my first post .
I have a 1998 S70 that has a bad engine (oil starvation/broken oil cooler line) and I was wondering if the 2.3 turbo from a 1996 850 would be a difficult swap ? I relise the turbo is different but is there any other differences of concern besides sensors and the like .
Engine will be coming out of vehical with automatic (engine/turbo rebuilt at aprox 200K km/120K miles)and into the S70 which has a 5 speed and is a one owner with 168K km/110 K miles . I plan on going over it before dropping it in of course and the timing belt , seals and gaskets will be looked at...suggestions on what I may be missing ??
I should add that I was a certified auto mechanic for years and retired from it in the mid 80's . I also worked for Stihl chainsaws and power equipment for 17 years so I do have a fairly good technical background
This is not my first venture with Volvo , my first was a 1966 122S 2dr with a borg-warner 3 speed auto (dog out of the gate but once you got it rolling
) , some 140 series and my last an 1987 740 intercooler that I should have never sold but that is going back about 10 years now so it's been a while since owning a Volvo and these FWD are not as friendly to work on as the old ones .
Also , I don't have all the technical manuals but what other parts might be harvested from this 850 doner car that would work in the S70 ?
Thanks in advance ,
