    Swapping a good ol' Detroit pushrod V8 into a Volvo has long been a popular swap; so popular, in fact, that a couple of companies sell.

    For a start there's the early front end conversion, commonly known as a 'flat front' due to the lack of prominent grille that on later cars sticks.

    It would be silly heavy but nice and patriotic. Volvo submitted 3 years ago by Slothyota. And turbo reduces the displacement allowed. Id really not suggest a Chevy other than for reasons of price.

I currently own a 91 GL wagon with a 2. I saw one recently for sale on eBay so I know it can be done. Any leads, ideas or links for this kind of conversion being done in Australia would be helpful. I know about engineering cert and other requirements for such a project.

    I could not find a thread on this topic so have started one Look in the showroom section of turbobricks. Black Dynamite Slowbrick wrote: I think you need to add i was in an s80 with three wheels getting pulled backwards and was told to "hold on shit is about to get real".

    We fitted an injected Ford Windsor into a with a t5 manual. All pretty straight forward but needed custom headers. Qld compliance was easy. Okay - getting the idea it's not impossible. I have done lots of mechanical and body work over the years so not too worried about ripping the old 4cyl out Vauts, will a t5 box handle the extra torque okay? Thanks for your help. The t5 is a ford gearbox, we used a 6 cylinder box because of availability and price.

    Been on the road for 8 months. Any idea what size V8 you can turbo and still get it engineered? Does a t5 box need any crazy adaptation to fit a 1uz?

    Anyone done a ford inline 6 swap on a as well? I feel like somebody on Ozvolvo should put a Barra in a It would be silly heavy but nice and patriotic. For a 1uz, there are better boxes to use than a t5. W58, t56, r in order of price and strength all have off the shelf available adaptor plates.

    Don't think it ever eventuated though. I have a ed ford with a good six and T5, and have been toying with the idea of squeezing them into my Purely because I have both cars and the drivetrain is going to be set aside for my GT. From comments above this is 'doable'. What are your thoughts? Will it be a fairly simple swap? I think the sump will be an issue, thogh the ideal sohc motor to start with, the Au, needs more sump work.

    June edited June Mark, I am doing exactly the same. Mark, I am doing exactly the same, V8 sound and grunt in a tidy old Wagon. At this time car is having some repair to the clear coat on the bonnet and roof prior to running gear being replaced.

    I know where you are coming from, I am not after a speed demon but a practical and enjoyable cruiser. It is to be a cruiser. I pretty sure the ford is lighter and its much narrower.
