I remember a project thread here (I think?) where someone was swapping in some sort of zoomy Audi motor. I'm not sure when it dawned on them that the Audi motor turned the wrong way, but I want to say it was almost as late as the first drive.

Then you need to sort out the coolant hoses, wiring, sensor placement (to have a working coolant gauge), throttle cable, transmission mount, etc etc. I was able to use the stock BW55 tranny mount bracket, but I had to add a 1-1.5" spacer to get it to bolt up to the transmission. I am in the process of making a spacer to allow the stock driveshaft to be used, but if it's thicker than an inch, I'm not going to risk it unless I can be 100% sure it spins true.

Looks like some conflicting answers here....lets narrow it down:

1) I have an AW70. I would be open to grabbing the transmission with the B6304 seeing as how the AW70 isnt the strongest thing on earth. If I did, would my driveshaft work? or do I need to stay with the AW70/71 (I could grab an AW71 too) to have my driveshaft work.

2) Does anyone have pictures for fitment (or not) of the motor mounts, tranny mount, driveshaft yadda yadda.

3) I would be running the full electronics from the b6304s .... unless someone says rex can do it..lol

Lets keep this going!

You'll have to use the B6304 tranny, since the bellhousing pattern is different than the redblock AW70. It won't fit the whiteblock.

As far as driveshaft...no idea. I guess it depends on where the mounts put the engine vs. how much longer/shorter the AW30/40 is to the AW70.

Sorry for any confusion my post caused. I totally didn't see the part where you said 740.

And the driveshaft from a 960 sedan with the independent rear suspension and a live axle 960 wagon might be different too. I would try to snatch a complete drive train from a live axle 960 wagon since it basically have the same rear end your car has.

lh2.4 conversion with b230f+t (or ft). That will be easiest and quickest turn around time. Will still be slow though with stock parts lol

You could swap in an aw71 from a turbo car and I'm pretty sure it's a direct swap. Accumulator mod for quick hard shifts and you're good to go.

Yeah a 93 will have the bigger rods and usually squirters too. Those aren’t necessary but may be beneficial.

16v + Turbo would be a great way to go.

If someone forced my to stay redblock, that is what I would do.

I mean, yea. If you can find a 16v head in good shape. People usually want good money for those. Then you gotta grind the pistons, do all sorts of other bs, upgrade the trans now because the m46 isn't going to take that abuse. $100 wrecked S90 donor gets to be very appealing at that point, and I prefer to have dirt common engine parts on a daily beater.

I'd honestly just get a used b230ft (and optionally freshen it up a bit) unless you're dead set on swapping it. If you are going to swap it the LS conversions are so well documented it seems like the obvious choice although I definitely hear you about the inline-preference.

Can Regina manage a turbo setup?

There are guys here in the Netherlands that have developed parts so they can run honda motors clockwise.
Cool stuff. Made me think about a rwd honda swap for quite some time..

G'day Fred, as you're a noobie here you don't understand how it worksd yet.. See this is primarily a forum for young pups in their teens and 20s.. It is a requiremnt to NEVER ask about end use, budget, tools owned, experience or really anything before launching into suggestions on exactly what the other guy should do..So almost nobody ever does. The boys here get all pissed off and say your (what used to be you're) being "condensational" or a "know it all" if you ask questions...

So with that in mind I recommend you should be converting your car to one of those Foul-coon DOHC 24v inline 6s with minimum 2 turbos. Got it? Should be super easy and only cost the normal Turbobrick budget of $17.95..US dollars of course. See how it works, din't even ask what car you have..

Trust me, I've been reading here for more than 10 years and I getting the hang of how things work.

You do have a Volvo dontcha? Well never mind do it anyway.

And remember, everything everybody says here is fawkin brilliant...just some things are fawkin brilliant-er than others, but its all brilliant.
