Don't exchange engines you will only devalue the car and achieve nothing.

Love the concept
 
I'm am just about to begin. I have a 144 auto and its thirsty and sluggish, so was thinking of an engine swap too. I was going down the obvious route of Zetec and Type 9 box to give the old girl a bit of get up and go. Going for lowered stance too, although struggling to find alloys.

Anyway, await with interest while I get the welding torch out. Anyone reading lower edge rear wing panels are going cheap on ebay at moment from a place in Barnsley.

Sorry- but I just can't understand why you would want to do that to an old Volvo. Why waste a lot of time and money trying to turn a rather sedate 40yr old car into a modern performance vehicle. I just think you are missing the whole point of owning a classic car. If you need a high performance car go and buy one, there are plenty of very affordable Celicas, Skylines, Imprezas about at the moment.

arghh! why not convert to B20E which isnt sluggish .
OR fit a modern volvo T5 engine or even a normal 2.4 5 cylinder and M90 gearbox :-)
