Re: What yr or yrs can I put engine from 93 Volvo Turbo (Dickson)

Least amount of problem would be a complete engine/trans/electrics swap from a donor car of the same year/model Volvo.<p>Any B230F will FIT in any year 200/700/940 but most problems arise trying to get the trans to work right with the electronics from another car.<p>George Dill<p>

'90-'95 700/900 turbo cars use LH2.4 Turbo fuel system. Any of those cars would be the most like the '93 engine/fuel/ignition systems.<p>A '89-'93 240 that uses LH2.4 (most in that year range use LH2.4, but some rare ones had LH3.1) would be a good donor. You'd need a block mounted dizzy and perhaps an intermediate shaft swap. The head mounted dizzy won't fit a 240 engine bay. In the LH2.4 240, you could plug in your fuel and ignition computers, change the injectors, add the resistor pack, and the car would run (ideally, you'd bolt a turbo on the side too). Then whether you want to change the engine is up to you.<p>So pretty much any LH2.4 car, turbo or non-turbo, would be a reasonably easy donor.

Michael,<p>Thank You for your response. Being the unmechanically person that I am. The less work and headaches the better. I am interested in exact fits. Would the 700 Turbo line also be an exact fit in those years?<p>Dickson

Re: (Dickson)

The B230FT engine in the late-model 700 is the same as in your '93 940. It is much simpler to get a complete drive train from the donor car including all electronics because the engine and trans work together with the ECU. Remember, the repaired car must pass emission rules to be driven on public roads.<p>George Dill<p><br>
