Just like topic says, I totaled my v70 R and it might be possible I will buy it back from insurance. I am no expert but engine is a streight drop to 98-00 correct?

What about suspension ( brakes ) tranny and differential?

Thanks a lot!

You can use the engine and (manual) transmission with a bit of work and some slight modifications. Read some of these threads for starters:

You can use the R brakes on the rear, but the front calipers are too wide. The discs will work fine up front with a set of Porsche/Brembo 4 piston calipers and CJ Yother's (sold through IPD) adapter brackets.

Here's BBK info: http://volvospeed.com/vs_forum/topic/118814-bbk-calipers-what-will-fit/

None of the suspension or AWD/Haldex stuff will work.

Where are you located?
