1998 V70R RN swap

Post by dcmike »

The other day my old 2.3 in my 98 V70R lost oil pressure and now has a rod knock. Im going to replace the the engine with a RN engine. I would like to replace it with a low pressure turbo engine. My question is do I have to replace it with a AWD engine because of clearance issues of the angle gear? Then also what year and model cars have the low pressure turbo engine? I have seen the videos on you tube and feel very confident about all the extra stuff that needs to be done to the engine for the swap.

I guess I should ask. Are all 2.3 engines HPT and 2.4 LPT? Also any clearance issues with the angle gear with engines that came out of non AWD cars? I was going to try to use a 99 or 2000 engine.

There is no angle gear issue, the LPT engines are all the same regardless of drive train.

For 99 or 00 all LPT are 2.4. But you have other options too up into the 2000's. Ask member RickHaleParker, he is good at looking things up in VADIS.
