2006 XC90 VIN: YV4CZ852761299806 - best choice I think.
That is the donor for the ECM and TCM. The CEM out if that would is already sync with the ECM. Don't know if I can get the key transponder. Will simplify thing if I can.

How about new remotes when I have the encryption keys for the remotes?

I don't have them right now but I know where I can get everything, blade, case, transponder, remote and remote encryption keys for $60.00 a pair.

I have a local locksmith that can cut the blade but cannot do the programing.

Got the Air / ECM box all prettied up and it does not fix. Sits too tall. Thinking of modding the box so it hangs over the frame.

Did the measurements, It is 2" too high. I am pretty sure I can mod the box if I can find plate plastic to weld in place.

Na that is for a longitudinal engine.

If I was going to go the scoop route, let it be something more like this.

Go Z31 style

You could probably make something fairly easily to make that air box sit lower.

It is 2" too high sitting on the frame. I thought about cutting a notch on the outside so it would drop 2" but it look like I may not have 2" of clearance above the transmission cable.

ECM wiring harness on the engine side is short and does not give much if any option for relocating the ECM. besides the ECM is mounted on top of the Air box to keep it cool. Heat sink fins are in the air flow.

I might be looking at a custom air box, low but spread out. Maybe do it original hot rod style, rummage around the junk yard until I find a low profile that will do the job. Don't want to go with a small filter, to insure the engine does not asphyxiate.

The MAF housing is molded into the box also. The MAF sensor need to be in a air flow with the same cross section.

I doubt you have room to move it, but don't get hung on the air box must orient as it is now. The air would not care if you turned it sideways.
