Turbocharger swap

Post by Swedshfsh » Fri Dec 02, 2011 4:16 pm

Is it possible to use a turbocharger from a 1999 s80 t6 in my 1998 v70xc. I got the s80 which is totalled and the turbo in my v70 has some end play and squeals sometimes.also I am parting the s80 out in case anyone needs anything.The right front light and sheetmetal are wrecked.Everything else is good except the airbags.

Yes and no!!

The T6 uses 2 turbochargers with two separate exhaust manifolds (one for 1-3 and the other for 4-6) and the turbos are small; I believe they are smaller than the single turbos used even for the low pressure B5254T in your XC

If you could fabricate your own manifold setup for sequential operation as in the Mazda RX8 this would be nice but you don't have a lot of room back there at the firewall also you would have to design your own (very complex) sequential management program with a Haltech or similar computer.
