From another forum, a poster (who claims to work at Volvo) mentions that a new <B>Yamaha V8 is to grace the XC90 and will debut within at least a year or so </B>. Also, a <B>new tranny to the T6 is NOT forthcoming until the S80 gets a new inline 6 with a new tranny</B>.<p>Regarding the ZF 6-speed tanny in the Jaguar S-Type, the Jag has a longitudinal engine tranny combo, the XC90 is transversely mounted, so it would seem that the ZF tranny will also not fit the T6.<p>Anyone else has any other info that confirms/rejects the claims?<BR><BR>

Those engines (4, 5 and 6) will have a neat feature in that all the pulleys and belts found on the left (as you are looking at the engine from the front of the car) side of them, will disappear. The belts will be gone and the pulleys will also disappear toward the middle of the engine. They will be part of the interior of the new engines therefore saving space and fitting the larger engines in smaller cars; the 5-cyl. into the s40/V50, the 6-cylinder into the S60/V70, etc... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"><p>Yannis

Wow, this is all good news! <br>Do you know if the new inline 6 will also be a bi-turbo? Or will it be normally-aspirated?<br>Also, any idea on power output?<br>I realize these are ridiculous questions so early in the game, but I felt compelled to ask anyway! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmilep.gif" BORDER="0">

Normally aspirated engine is supposed to be 225HP while the twin turbo will be 280 to 285 HP but with greater torque than what it has now.<p>Yannis

Re: Yamaha V8 in XC90 and no new tranny for T6? (GrecianVolvo)

Seriously? Wow, those are nice numbers. I think the combo of the 6 sp & the higher hp/torque will result in a much quicker & fuel efficient vehicle.<br>Thanks for the info, I appreciate it. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0">

Yannis, is it true that 2004 xc90 will be avilable May 03? If so, what will be different? I heard it somewhere and thought it may be a rumor.<BR><BR>
