Got a 98 V70XC with a bad engine in a trade, found a 99 V70R engine I could use as a swap. Any particular issues with this swap? Can grab the whole subframe if needed.
$150, so it’s cheap at least.Ok. $?
99 motors aren’t really worth messing with unless it’s damn near free or extremely convenient. However it sounds like this may come with green injectors?
The later motor is inherently a better engine in every aspect other than being 83mm bore. Would be my recommendation, pending actual condition of the long block.$150, so it’s cheap at least.
The shop the car is at may have a newer RN sitting around, probably an LPT 2.4T from an XC70 or S60, so might just go with that if so.
