swap b230 for t5
I am looking for any info about swapping my na b230 in my 93 940 wagon for a t5.
I know it won't be a simple drop in replacement, I do know that I will need to swap the
ecu and wiring harness from the donor vehicle. I will most likely convert the car from aw71 auto trans
to a manual at the same time. What trans would work best for this conversion? Please keep in mind that I don't need to be concerned about emissions requirements due to the age of the vehicle.
If anyone out there has a website of this or a similar, ie 740, 760 or 960 to t5 conversion I would love to see it.
All replies are welcome, tell me to buy a different Volvo, tell me I should swap to a b230ft.
I have considered a ford 302, but I would really like to keep the car all Volvo.
