So I saw that Volvo changed the 5 speed auto to a stronger 6 speed auto on the 2006 models. But what else did they change ? Did they change anything with the engine to prevent the block from cracking or anything like that ?

Thanks

I wasn't aware that cracking blocks on the '04 and '05s were an issue. I only remember reading about one or two, and both were highly modified putting out nearly double the horsepower of the original 300. oclv

Only on the stealth "Special Edition" models. The catch: there is no badging on the SE so you're not really sure if you have one.

It's actually all black sapphire/atacama models w/ sport kit, it's a little know secret.

After a recent post I found out that the '06 GT received a beefier angle gear. The MT did not.

Zigger's was the last one. We all know what happened to that car, and it wasn't an issue with a cracked block.
