Manual gearbox swap on S80 t6

Everything on the Volvo S80. Sometimes called an "executive car", the S80 was Volvo's top-of-the-line passenger car.

Manual gearbox swap on S80 t6

Post by smangle »

Hey everyone

I have just become the owner of a very clean low milage (42k) 03 plate S80 t6 I'm looking into doing some subtle mods to it but I have sourced an S80 2.9 with a blown engine and a manual gearbox in it can I swap these over has anyone had any success doing this that can give me some pointers.

Much appreciated

I'm not sure if it will be any harder than the older 1999-00 V/S/C 70's as there was some carry over. The issues will be the removal of the TCU controlling the auto trans. Some re-programming of the ECU will likely be needed to remove the software looking for auto trans inputs.
