Default Will an engine from 2002 xc70 fit in 1994 940?

Self explanatory. Basically a buddy at work has a turbocharged xc70 that he was looking to sell. I have to swap the transmission anyway in the 940 for a manual, so anyone know if anything like that would work? What I would need to change along with the engine? Is it worth it?

Nobody spends real money on 7-9's so this is as close as you'll get.

Whiteblock in a 240 ver. 2 - Probably very little of what you'd like to know

One thing I can think of that may make this easier than a 240 swap is that 6304 (960) engine mounts may bolt up to the 5-cylinder engine and drop right in the 940 engine cross member thus saving having to fabricate engine mounts.

You should have your car ownership privileges revoked for asking that!

Well the long story short is the engine that came with my car is more trouble than it's worth and a co-worker had a car he's trying to get rid of and I was going to try and get the engine for cheap and maybe try something different.

You'll more than likely spend more money than you'd be able to recoup if selling the car, but building hot rods isn't always about the money.

As an old hotrodder the real answer is ANYTHING will fit in ANYTHING - if you have enough time, money, and skill. Is it worth it? That's a whole different question that the Volvo guys have answered pretty well.
