I am going to pull a good used engine from an 2004 to swap into my 2006 S60R, anything important, specific, or special? Or is it straightforward?

This will help alot with dropping the subframe even though it's for trans: http://forums.swedespeed.com/showthread.php?t=222549

Here is how mine came out:


Then I swapped the new motor over and also all the parts that needed to be swapped into it.

I'm liking that ipd swaybar how is it?
Love them man. Have the elevate 25 mm adjustable in the rear and the ipd 25 mm up front. Has just enough oversteer for my liking with the elevate as stiff as it can go. Coupled with my 245 nitto nto5s car sticks awesome and feels on rails.

Sounds like a steal man. You will love them. The rear was harder than the front for me. Had to pretty much melt the rear bolts out they were corroded so bad.

When I got my car I took out all the bolts pasted them with some anti seize put them back in and undercoated the whole bottom of my car not that it needed it but you can never go wrong with undercoating lol

Well if those bolts came out when you did that it should be a breeze if your pretty good wrenching.

Well thank you adsinnott1, and wassimbakkar. My plan is to pull the 2004 engine/trans/angle gear together. Then on the 2006 just pull the angle gear, and engine while leaving the transmission in the car.

Damn you doing a swap that sucks you have to do the job twice but good luck on everything......
Just remember there's a difference between Manuel angle gear and auto the sleeve is a little longer on the Manuel one.
If you have any questions I'll more than happy to help

Just recently replaced my engine for one them at didn't have a cracked block in it. Make sure to replace turbo instead of swapping the old one into the new one. That's what I did with mine and it failed a few weeks after the install. Good luck!

I don't think your turbo is the issue mate. i wouldnt go around telling people this without knowing for sure. i had a rebuilt motor put in mine with my old turbo and my caR has never been better.

Yeah my bad I'm a newbie, had a long discussion in another thread about it and figured out it may be the tvc or a vacuum line leak. Won't know for sure until my mechanic checks it out.
