for the same money (perhaps a little more), you could have had new forged units from Venolia.

for some reason i think its gonna be another 5 years before we get S40's in the pick and pull around these here parts.

I bought a set of standard B23FT pistons from Saltflatracer for $100. One piston has broken rings and I've got to order them before they aren't available. But it was such a deal I couldn't pass it up.

I need 83mm bore low compression pistons
found in the s40, the s80, the 2.4L 5cyl turbo whiteblock, the XC90...
its like 1/2 of the cars they produce...

low pressure 5cyl turbos are all over the yards.

'96-'98 glt low-po turbo 850/x70 cars have what you are looking for in the b5254t motors

'99-'00 s/v70 glt and v70xc also have what you are looking for in the b5244t motors.

newer stuff as well but not sure how plentiful they are in your yards.

I can not get stuff from the dealer, But when i have called and asked and others who have called and asked those are the prices they have been quoted. a bunch of guys on VS were looking for pistons and I was out of stock, they called their local dealer and got those prices

Start calling volvo dealers around the US
