An 03 or newer 2.5t with busted engine or tranny. <p>Anyone know of any ? <p>Cheaper the Better . <p>AWD or FWD doesnt matter<p>Condition not to concered about but worse condition cheaper it better be. <p>If its a FWD one going to put a M56 in one <br>If its a AWD one going to put a M66 in one. <p>Consider neither of these options are offered in the US , going for a one off car. If it works right willl be able to offer it to any XC90 driver <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>So see what you guys can find me <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>Perferable with no body damage <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

A 2.5T XC90 with a blown engine or tranny problem? This I have not heard before. Maybe you are thinking of the T6?

same engine and tranny in the XC90 as a 99-newer V70 so there has to be one or two floating around <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
