Transmission/engine interchanges

Post by MDK » Tue May 14, 2019 7:30 pm

Hey all ..MDK here. I guess I should have been more clear when asking about interchanges. So...if have an 2004 R car with an auto 5 speed... can I install a 2006 R car auto 6 speed in mine and just swap out the trans control module ?

no.
There might be a network hack expert around somewhere that can do this but the ECM and TCM wouldn't play nice or at all in that swap.

Thanks Jimmy 57 ... your imput is valuable. Volvo engineers €¥π£!!! You know... there's no continuity with the Swede's. I used to be able to to put Pontiac engine in a Chevy..or Chevy engine in a Oldsmobile when I was a young man. I put a Cadillac engine in my Buick Roadmaster wagon... not too long ago and the car's where 5 years apart!!! Hope the moderators don't get mad for venting my frustration... but they should know what I mean. MDK .. over and out
