Hi, I am planning to buy a volvo on today.<p>Does anyone know wheather the 1989 - (1988 manufactured) have stronger conrod(13mm) B230FT? does 1988 740 have a 13mm conrod, too?<p>I was thinking about 1986 740 turbos, which are generally much cheaper, and there are plenty of 5spds with 1986 740 turbos on my local market, but it has 9mm conrod - which are weaker than the 1990's 13mm conrod. <p>I am confused -<br>If I buy the car, I am gradually going to tune it up to 240~260HP. <p>Is it a must to take the 13mm conrod engines??<p>please help me! must make fast decisons!
