I asked this in the new V70 forum also. I was waiting for my car to be serviced, and was reading a writeup on the S80 on their bulletin board. The S80 has a biturbo 6-cyl similar in power to the Audi S4. <P>With the S60, V70 and S80 all on the same platform, I wonder if the motor would fit the S60. In that case, that'd make a great S60R.

The biturbo inline-6 will barely fit in the S80 as it is, in the transverse direction. Volvo had to create the worlds shortest 4-speed automatic transmission for the S80. I highly doubt that the biturbo inline-6 will fit in the S60 or new V70 in the tranverse direction at least. Plus, the S60 and new V70 use a longer 5-speed transmission. The T6 engine has already been put into an S40, but in the longitudinal direction, not in the transverse direction. I hope this helps! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>Yes, someone has done it! They put a Volvo S80 T6 B6284T engine into a 1997 Volvo S40! They changed the position of the engine and turned it into a RWD car with a 5-speed. This car supposedly makes 476.1 hp and 449.9 lb.ft of torque. Pretty amazing, because it only weighs 2,535 lbs!<P> <IMG SRC="http://www.trm.nu/bilder/s40/motorrum.jpg"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://www.trm.nu/bilder/2000/kullen_4.gif"> <P> <IMG SRC="http://www.trm.nu/bilder/2000/kullen_3.gif"> <P>-Drew<p>[This message has been edited by InDy (edited 02-08-2001).]
