Folks,
The 13g turbo on my 97 850 w/170k on it is starting to smoke badly (blue smoke). The car has had a ECU upgrade done to it by IPD 100K ago. My question is will a 15G turbo from a 98 S70 GLT work on my car? Not a speed racer here and seldom into the boost but tired of burning oil also.
If so, what parts (seals, bolts etc) would be part of the replacement process?
Thanks.
John

The car will probably work but it won'tbe tuned correctly as I am sure the fuel table between the two Turbos is different, but hey if you are looking for a band aid and it bolts up go for it...

Well, did you swap it?
If you are still on the fence, just go for it.
They should be a straight swap.
IPD is typically conservative with their tunes making it that much easier to say go for it.
