Those are a little harder to find at the PnP for $400.

I dunno, those xc90s are pretty plentiful at the yards. I bet its not too long before you starting finding them at the PNP

What transmission would be used for an XC90 V8?

I was under the impression the V8 Supercars all used the same basic engine, regardless of "brand" of vehicle.

There are definitely a few interesting external things going on with that engine compared to the factory B8444S.

The XC90 uses an Aisin AWTF-80 SC.

Some people have adapted the 4r70w to the V8 that's in the 1996 SHO Taurus. That engine was also made in partnership with Yamaha, so perhaps it shares a bellhousing pattern? Probably not, but I'm sure an adapter can be made.

Nope,

a recent rules change opened it up to a lot more manufacturers.


I suddenly want to make a trip to Austin to see these things run.

I think someone once told me that the transmissions used in V6 Rangers could also be adapted.

Apples to Oranges my friend.

The simplicity of a pushrod LS shouldn't be compared to an exotic overhead cam v8 IMO.

Not to mention the LS is one of the only 'real' v8's still being produced today.

Anything "could be adapted". The bellhousing bolt pattern is completely different on the B8444s and the SHO.

Oh? I thought the B8444 was based on the Yamaha/Ford SHO V8. My mistake.

It supposedly is, but that obviously has no bearing on the bellhousing bolt pattern.

That 242 with the B8444S has an unholy stack of adapters and bellhousings to make it work.

As opposed to those pesky "V8"s that are actually V7s pretending to have an extra cylinder.....

Huge discussion at the time of introduction,

Quote:
The engine is unique in Ford's wide range of V8 engines in that it is designed for transverse use and has a V6-like 60° bank angle. Officials of all three companies involved insist that the Volvo V8 is not related to the SHO engine; the die-cast open-deck aluminum Volvo block is clearly different from the sand-cast closed-deck aluminum SHO engine block although the two engines share many common dimensions including bore centers, stroke, bearing journal diameters, and deck height.

I'll take one of those in the Polestar Wagon they just unveiled.

Wonder why no on has ever taken the V8 out of an xc90 and adapted it into a 245?
