Kallekula's $350 S40

Post by kallekula » Sat Aug 12, 2017 2:05 pm

Got a really sweet deal on a 2005 S40 recently. The engine had overheated and the head was warped.
I began with spilling a couple of gallons of water inside the car so I had to take the seats and all of the carpet out to dry :evil:
Next i replaced all interior lights with LED ones, looks really good at night. Also refurbished the headlights because the plastic had turned completely yellow.
Currently replacing piston rings while the head is at the machine shop. Here are some pictures:

Good find! How much do you expect it will cost you to rebuild the engine? How much are you doing yourself?

I have calculated that all parts needed and machining the head will cost around $700. I'm doing all the work myself except the head.
