      I think people's definition of "a lot" varies from person-to-person. To me, when someone says their car is vibrating a lot, I picture an old muscle car or an old diesel that rocks the car as it idles.

      I also have a poly upper torque mount and never noticed much vibration. I have to replace my lower transmission torque mount and have decided to install a stock replacement due to many negative reviews.

      There are many reviews of "a lot" of vibration transmitted to the cabin for Delrin subframe bushings if you have an auto transmission. I recently had them installed on mine and honestly, I barely noticed any change in NVH - like I have to concentrate to notice the change. I now enjoy the improved handling.

      I'll probably just swap it out before I put the engine in.

      Any input on the other questions (Flex plate, etc)?

      I also noticed zero difference in NVH with my Delrin subframe bushings. My guess is that people who notice additional NVH have worn out engine mounts.

      That's likely the same reason people say that about the poly mounts too. If you replace one or two worn rubber mount with something stiffer but don't address the other mounts in your car, the old mounts become the weak point.

      I think the best course is to either go with one or the other to even it all out. Personally, I would replace the old with OEM rubber mounts and stiffen what needs stiffening to improve handling - like the Delrin sub-frame mounts and beefier sway bars & end links.

      Agree 100%. I'd do all rubber mounts with Delrin subframe bushings and a rear sway bar. Or don't mess with the sways if you have an R unless you're going to drive it really hard.

      My wagon didn't come with a rear sway bar at all. It used to handle like a boat. I'd aim for a lane to turn into and I'd inevitably end up in the next lane over. Swapped the subframe bushings for Delrin and installed the IPD sways & end links, now it goes where I point it.

      OK. Still trying to sort out which flexplate to use.

      Looking around on the volvopartswebstore site, the '01 V70XC comes up with a 30677459 p/n for the flex plate and the '97 GLT comes up with 9135801. The "913" looks to fit both cars, while the "306" does not. More digging shows that maybe they are the same part. Unless anyone has any input, I may be stuck waiting until I pull the engine/trans out for the swap to compare them.

      In other news, I discovered that the RN oil cooler that was on this engine is damaged. It looks like one of the outlet tubes got whacked at some point, and it looks to be separated where it goes into the cooler. Guess I need to add that to the list of parts now...

      You want the flex plate that matches the car. All
      P80 auto trans flex plates are the same. Use the one that's in the wagon.

      Well, life has been busy, so time has been limited. Parts have slowly been trickling in, but I think next week is when we're going to pull her car off of the road and get into the teardown for the swap.

      Waiting on the oil cooler and new hoses to show up, but I pretty much have everything in place that isn't going to be coming from the current engine.


      Sorry...blurry


      Going to get the oil cooler and injectors/rail in place this weekend.

      I need to figure out the fuel lines, as the hardlines won't clear the VVT engine cover. I can use braided flex stuff, but I need to ID the fitting types on each end. AN tube nuts, of some sort (-4 or -6AN perhaps? Haven't looked close enough yet)

      The list of things that will be happening to the car:

      -RN engine swap
      -16T and 3" DP and front exhaust section
      -HPT ECU and injectors
      -Poly subframe bushing inserts
      -Trans fluid drain/refill
      -DS driveshaft
      -Front brake rotors (She's warped the current ones)
      -R sways
      -Dash light fix (IP, ECC, switches all have dead bulbs)
      -16" wheels/tires
      -Rear spoiler

      I'd like to do the full exhaust, but the funds just aren't there at the moment. Perhaps when the work bonus money comes through, there will be some extra.

      The poly inserts aren't as good as Delrin, but I did the poly on my '96 GLT when I pulled it apart for the clutch replacement, and noticed a positive improvement. I'll save the Delrin stuff for my car.

      Other than maybe dropping the gas tank to see if I can locate the potential source of the P0455 code that won't go away, I think that should cover things for now.

      If you don't have them already a t5 or XC has a larger front sway bar (22mm t5 and 98+ R and XC is 22.5mm)

      I have them. Her car currently has no rear bar, so these will be an upgrade for her. I had them on my '96 GLT that I scrapped.

      I was looking to save up for IPD bars for my T5, but the info on the other stock bars is good info.

      OK, so finally got started on this. (Obligatory helper cat)


      The To-do list


      End of work for the day (about 4 hours, or so)


      No real surprises, just the tediousness of carefully taking things apart and trying to find all of the wiring harness attachments, connectors, etc.

      A couple things did pop up.

      First, is that it looks like I'll need to do the SAS Delete on the new ECU (98 V70R), as it appears that it and the current engine share the same emissions set-up. (#4 )

      Second, I came across this lonely little tube that was attached to the main coolant tube.


      It runs along the coolant pipe to the back of the engine and comes off and attaches to the FPR.


      Been chasing a P0455 code on this thing for a while. Might this be the cause? Whatever vac tube that went to the T on the intake is gone, but there was no open port on the T (It had been capped off at some point.)


      Got the regulator swapped out on the alternator and the wife worked on swapping out some of the dash bulbs.

      Other things to do today, but back at it again tomorrow.

      So, my plans to get more done on this today were sidelined by having to waste time messing with a dead starter on the 240.


      After Sunday, most of the bits between the engine and chassis are disconnected. Still need to undo the trans/oil cooler lines at the rad, and the heater hoses, but that's minimal. The PS suspension is out of the way, and the exhaust is removed.

      Speaking of exhaust---

      This is the crap that was in place from where the cat had been removed at some point.


      I did get some time inside, out of the heat, to swap bulbs in the dash lights and did the SAS delete mod on the ECU.






      Hopefully I can get my hands in a starter and get the 240 fixed up tomorrow, so I can get back to this.

      Finally got the engine/trans out today.




      Engine bay isn't too messy, really. The subframe is going to need more de-cruding than the rest of it.

      Yeah, it's a shame to have to consider that. Bone dry connections and the fittings popped right out with little fuss and didn't even break the yellow clips...

      Sounds like it's fine then, I wouldn't worry about it... Not that hard to replace later if needed

      I was looking at replacing o-rings, etc. The cooling system was leak-free (aside from the itsy-bitsy HG leak) before taking this apart.

      Looks like most of the work to replace the coupler is done inside the car, anyway, should it need to be done in the future.


      On another note, does any one have the thread handy for the fittings on the fuel line that comes over the engine? I'm going to need to rework it to clear the RN cover, and was probably going to just use a braided line. I've had luck on other projects using aluminum hardline with AN tube nuts, so I might do that, depending on what the fittings are.

      You can also swap the lines to the RN lines. It's a little more involved but makes for the cleanest install.

      OK, well I think I have a solution for the fuel line. I think I can maneuver it around and run it under the RN cover (with a couple small notches).

      Been busy with getting bits and pieces off/cleaned/transferred/etc. Just about ready to separate the engine/trans and get that swapped over.

      I'm hoping to have the engine at least up in the engine bay and supported by Thurs, but that all depends on how my schedule goes.

      I think I may need a different right motor mount. I had to use the RN bracket on the engine, and the bolts for the motor mount are offset from the one from the N motor. Probably need a 99-00 part there.


      I mentioned earlier that this engine wasn't going to get a "tune", but in the past couple weeks I've been reading up and getting parts together for tuning/flashing the M4.3/4.4 stuff. At the very least I'll be able to make some minor tweaks. I've got the TunerPro RT stuff, as well as the Motronic Suite, so I should be able to at least dial things in a bit better. There is a '98 V70R ECU in the car now, but I'll probably need to make some changes to timing. Since you can't read the tune from the ECU (at least I don't think you can), and I can't find the "455" V70R base tune on the Motronic Suite, I may have to start with just the standard "607" bin. That or start with a base LPT tune and adjust the boost control settings, etc.
      Still reading up on all of this to figure out what might work best.

      You need the 99-00 RN p80 motor mount. I think I have one somewhere I'll look

      Are you referring to the mount/bracket on the engine, or the rubber mount to the frame?



      (We've had no 99-00's in the yard here for a while. Thought there was one a week ago, and went looking for other parts from it, but it turned out to be a '98 T5M, so I grabbed the ECU, instead)

      Looks like it's time for a rebuild ('97 GLT 855)

      The aluminum mount under the starter was what I was referring to

      I think you already sent me that one, and it's attached to the new engine already.

      I'm asking about the mount on the "front" of the engine, on the pass side, under the crank pulley.

      This one. It SHOULD be the same, maybe the engine is just sitting funny on the other mounts? Post a few pics to give me an idea whats up.

      The engine isn't back in the car yet, but bracket that bolts to the engine for that mount is different. I'm at work, but I may be able to post up a pick later (if my host decides to get my pics active again...)

      I recall a thread (On MVS, I think) where someone with a '98 ran into an issue with a different mount (The mounting holes of the upper tab were shifted (fore or aft) from where they should be). It struck me, as I noticed that the mounting holes on the engine brackets were different, and may be something for me to keep an eye out for.

      EDIT - THIS THREAD ON MVS

      Comparing PN 8631698 vs 9480189, the upper portion is shifted. Now I need to verify what I need.

      I'm pretty sure you need the 9480189. There's a t5 specific version too, blue marked? I know all my cars have the last style and the early ones don't work from messing with this mount on the XC and 00 T5

      Yeah, that's probably going to be the case. Of course it's the expensive one...

      OK, well last weekend was spent degreasing the transmission and subframe and getting the trans attached to the new engine and under the car.

      I had a couple SF bushings to replace, so I took care of that and got the new ones in and the poly inserts installed. R front sway bar installed.





      I got stalled getting the engine back in place because I discovered I needed new motor mounts. So I waited. Whiile I waited I swapped out the ABS module and replaced all of the bad IC bulbs.
      Additionally I started on doing a "proper" adjustment of the AC clutch gap. I had the "wire" method on there and it worked OK, but I had to redo it once because the wires had dug into the little rubber pads and caused the gap to open back up.


      The M5 bolts tightened into the holes bottom out perfectly for removal of the clutch. No special tools needed. I had the AC system still connected, so this was done in the car.

      This weekend, I was able to get the engine, steering rack, subframe back up into place. All mounts are in place, but I still need to get the steering coupler in it's final home, install the PS lines and tighten things down. The 9480189 was the proper PS mount. Everything dropped right into place.


      Now it's on to the getting the harness and hoses all back in place and bolting on all of the bits, hoping I don't forget/miss something.

      I'd get those subframe bushings with the poly inserts out of there while you still have the subframe out. Way easier to replace them with Delrin now.

      The subframe is all bolted up at this point.

      Poly inserts are fine for this car. I had them in the '96 GLT and noticed the improvement.

      Delrin will be going into my sedan, however. Have a manual swap to do on it.

      What will probably be her favorite part of the entire project.

      Came in a stash of parts with the other wheels we picked up for the car.





      Only able to grab an couple hours during the week in the evenings to work on the "reattaching everything" portion of the project. Going to hopefully get a few hours this weekend to get more done. (As long as the weather behaves).

      They're in decent shape, but could use some conditioning.

      She actually says that she'd like to have cloth seats in the car, but these are too nice to get rid of.
