2001 S60 2.4 T which motors fit?

The engine blew on the 2001 S60 with 91k miles. Looks like prev owners were driving too long with a bad ECM dumping fuel into the crankcase. Engine oil pressure dropped while cruising at highway speed "low oil pressure stop asap" message on dash with oil light on and i shut off immediately and the cam cover had blown off!! Sludge found inside. Need to know what years/models motors will fit. It's a 2.4 turbo.

The 6th and 7th characters in the VIN give you the engine family code. You want yours to match the donor car.

You can be a lot more flexible if you are willing to make a head swap, but a used engine with warranty should be about $500, so unless time is critical ,wait for the match from 2001-2004 model
