Hi I recently came across a really good deal on a 06 S60R engine an 6spd tranny with less than 45k on them and I was wondering if I could swap them into my 98 V70r? Any info or help would be great thanks!

Yes. Not going to find a whole lot here for such an effort though....... try trolling over on the volvospeed performance forum.

the engine will fit. however it will need some work to the timing cover and to the intake to use the 98 instead of a 06 ETM. as for the transmission you need a custom mount to fit it. you need to shorten the shifter linkage.

you also have to find x70 manual pedals, the s40 m66 awd shifter and bracket will work.
slave, clutch line, x70 shifter cables,

clutch, fly wheel, custom brackets, etc.

Is it a 6sp manual or 6spd auto?

If it were an auto tranny, would this be a "straight forward" swap into a 99-00? Could the '06 ECU and TCU be used (if auto)?

This is not stright forward at all.
Ask Adam (AthruC) about putting an 99 ME7 engine into a 98!!!!!
Nothing fits properly
Then you have the electronics to deal with
