Can you make an automatic S60 into a manual if you had a wrecked S60 manual to take the parts from? I am just curious if that conversion is possible and if Volvo used a standard P2 and then added the transmission later or if there is a certain p2 for a manual and automatic. Only looking for an answer to a question not a bunch of negative responses or "sell the car and get a manual response". I am simply just curious with a slight desire to do it. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/tongue.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Thanks in advance

you would need a new ECU and since the ECU's are mated to the VIN (i believe) it would get super messy.

Re: Just curious..... (assa55in)

You can do what that guy did with NA to T5 conversion: Swap in every computer and the wiring harness from the donor car. I believe that is that path of least resistance. Now you just have to find a donor with all computers dry and intact. <p>Might be fun at the smog check when the car sends the wrong VIN to the DMV though... (if that's how that works).

I hope you are ready to spend some money! I wish you luck, it would be awesome for someone to knock this out! The idea has been brought up so many times!

Re: Just curious..... (GiRaff3)

DMV is not a problem because my car is not registered anyway I use my dealer plates and as long as I find a donor car money really shouldn't be an issue because me and my mechanic will be doing most of the work ourselves. I was pretty much just wondering if it were possible, ie clutch pedal installation, if everything was pretty much bolt on no drilling off holes and what not.
