1.yesokay so i have a 2004 volvo s60r with what is beleived to be a cracked block, so im in the market for new motors. (used)
i have a few questions regarding this topic.
1. will a newer motor from say a 2006 work? if so will it work with my ecu?
2. will a motor out of a v70r work? i would think so but i am not forsure.
my main question is if a newer motor will work and if so will i need a new ecu or more?
thanks for your help guys.
i know you can build up a t5 block to be stronger but are the internals as strong on the t5 motors stock for stock? I know the walls are thicker.i hear you guys talking about these t5 motors instead of the R motor.. is it worth it? my intentions were for downpipe, 3 inch exhaust, and ard tune eventually, but i mean if its cheaper and more reliable and also capable of holding more power then maybe a different motor is a good option?
Baffles are different in the R oil pan, and of course the the oil level sensor, which is not part of the pan, but does displace some oil volume.i know you can build up a t5 block to be stronger but are the internals as strong on the t5 motors stock for stock? I know the walls are thicker.
don't the R motors have a modified oil pan as well?
