Both options require you to have something mailed or shipped to you correct?

How you do you figure it would be cheaper to do the software upgrade? The emulator alone is $175

You should be able to find at the wreckers, ebay or classifieds a proper Turbo ECU and EZK for $100

You might save a few dollars with the shipping on the smaller emulator...

If you feel comfortable to do the software upgrade that is the reason to do it...to try and save a few dollars is just plain silly since the factory parts are known to work.

How would the car perform if I was to install 577cc hi resistance injectors in place of the turbo volvo injectors if they fit? I may have a extra set off my srt4 if I decide to upgrade them.

probably about the same assuming you have lh2.4.

if you raise the boost results may be wonderful.

OK guy I have 89 740 Intercooled turbo wagon. My engine is on it last days. I found nice low milage 230f from 91 NA 740. What I will need to do other than drill the hole in pan or block when I swap engines?

Should I swap heads or leave them alone? Compression on NA is over 175 on all cylinders.

i think your going to have to swap out the head gasket to lower the compression...

I have stock tdo5-12b turbo and I run stock boost. Do you guys think I will have to get different gasket? I guess I will just run it way it is. If it will blow I will replace gasket and head from my old engine

Well this thread has been helpful for the most part. Have a doner turbo car lined up. Minor problem I've run into. I have a 1992 245 M47 car. It has the LH 3.1... Tons of talk about the 2.2 and 2.4. Have followed all of the links in this thread and have seen no mention of the 3.1. I am a bit color blind so not sure of the injector top color. Same as the rest of the N/A cars? How compatable are the 2.4 and 3.1 harnesses? The air meter appears way different. really don't want to rewire car because of the before mentioned color thing. Extending wires is not that hard though. At least a nudge would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Ok, here is something I haven't seen on here. I have a friend of a friend who says he can turbo my 89 240 for 750 - 1000 dollars... Naturally I haven't asked what all that includes yet, but he also said he can get it done in an afternoon. Does this sound generally reasonable from what all of you have seen and done? He said 750 to get it done cheaply, 1000 to get it done right... I assume the 1000 includes the ecu's, and such.. but not sure yet... anyways, I thought I would ask.

heck, it can be done for $250 or so..... if you buy a $250 donor car which is possible.

so , yes, it can be done, I'm guessing that is parts and labor?

Why not do it yourself and save some money?

The reason I wouldn't do it myself is because I do not have proper tools... or a garage... Winter can be cruel when working on the side of the road without proper tools, an such. He said he has the parts sitting around and can get it done in an afternoon.

I'd find out the differance between both options if actuallly have the money and are serious.
The $750 option better come with the correct turbo ECU, they only sell for $50 so that couldn't be reason for the price change.

Well I have to wait until tax return season rolls around, but it is close enough for me to try to get an idea if I will need any extra parts, or not...

Going to get the engine swapped by a volvo specialty shop in the summer, can't wait for my B230FT.

Hopefully I can pay them to throw a M90 transmission in with it, I heard the M47/46 Can't hold more than 200hp

good luck, not available in the US unless you have one sent here from Europe, expect to pay $1000 for parts and shipping (or more)

just a quick question. Does a aw70 work fine with a b230ft? I'm thinking that it would but I'm not positive.
