So, it's a '98 R with a full M66 swap, and yet it's got a few issues he doesn't want to fix, even after dropping all that money on the manual swap? Plus only one picture, this doesn't really pass the sniff test, but still....M66 swap, that alone has my attention, too much actual volvo knowledge to be a scam i'm thinking, but very weary to trust the swap to have been done correctly? Damn I wish he'd have just blown the engine so I could have the driveline!

I'm not 100% sure what's going on but tempted to just walk away and sell as is.. Could be turbo could be HG but unsure cause it was done 50k ago. Loses coolant slowly not overheating when driving and misses a little on idle but on drive it seems fine. Anyways here's specs on car aside from engine issue.

98 v70r AWD
203k on body 160k on engine 50k on HG
M66 swapped 6spd manual (3k old)
New rear driveline (1yr old)
18" pegs which good tread
Ecode lenses on HIDs 6000ks
HID fogs 3000ks
Little dings here and there that a dent guy could probably get out
Black ext on tan interior (trunk area needs some panel pieces)
I'm sure there is other stuff.

This car is definitely worth 4500$, I have 2500$ in swap alone. Shifts great no slippage.

When running good it got no engine codes.
