Default 340 Axle

Sorry, its probably been asked a million times but i cant find any pictures etc...

Best axle upgrade/ suspension upgrade for a Volvo 340 please.

Looking at possible 300 bhp N/A sequential box Conversion.

Thanks,

My best guess is probably a transaxle setup off of an old Alfa, like a GTV6 or 75. The drivetrain configuration of the 340 is pretty limiting as far as upgrades go.

340? What engine will you be using?

360 with a redblock then there are some gearbox choices. Axle wise you could use a BMW pumpkin with custom prop and custom drive shafts. 5 link the beam. There are a few that have taken this path.

Just read again N/A so a Motordesign engine or something else?
