96 960 mods: s80 t6 exhaust manifold swap: can it be done?

Post by CIK7 »

I have the option between 98 S70 base manual or 96 960 sedan. I'm heavily weighing on the side of the 960 because of the older style. I can buy and program my own remote ($30?) vs the sv70s which require $200 or more for fob from dealer.
I want to know if it's possible to swap the 960 exhaust manifold for the S80 t6 em. I understand that I would have to add and organize air intake hoses for this.
1996 960 Saloon (2nd owner, Mi:140205, The Cloud)
1998 V70 XC black (Mi:143,995/151K, The Storm)
1998 V70 XC white ($50, junk, getting crushed soon)
2001 V70 Ba white (bad solenoid, traded for Storm)

Plans for The Storm: universal enclosed trailer with fusebox and unique climate control system.
