I pulled out the AC unit this morning. I had to bend couple things to get the condenser out of the way. I’m pretty sure the dealership when they reinstalled the plate above it spot welded it on after a minor accident where my buddy back into my grill when we were in high school and bent it. I couldn’t pry the thing off without breaking random spot welds. Not sure why because photos I’ve seen on other Volvo’s it unbolts. Can you guys confirm that?

Checked the transmission clearance tonight. I have an idea now where to make more clearance.

I had to get tighter fitting 90 degree fittings. Still not able to get the 4L80E mounted. I’ll try hammering little more.

I pulled the motor and dropped the transmission. Air hammered for couple hours. I hope that I have clearance this time. Wish I used an air hammer in the first place.

Default spot welds.

Hey , nice build. When I was doing my supra 6 cyl swap,I decided to drill trough the spot welds and put nuts and bolts in it. It was so much easier to slide the engine / trans combo in one shot, cause i was doing it Han Solo. Must of the ones I've seen are welded. I could be mistaken, but it worked out for me that way. See ya!!! DZ

Thanks! Looks like you have V8 swap yourself. Maybe once I get this together we could meet up.

Going to mount the new shifter on top of the shifter box. Going to weld a plate onto the top of it.

Finally made enough clearance for the transmission connectors.

Luckily made enough space to get the last bell housing bolt in. Now I start moving forward again.

Steering shaft hits the manifold. I ordered a smaller diamter STS shaft. I think it will clear then.

Figuring how to mount the new shifter.

Welded a 1/8” plate to the shifter bucket and painted it. Stick welder isn’t the best for sheet metal but it will work.


Shifter below is what I got. I’ll have to cut it to fit.

I will have to cut part of the dash to make it fit but it should look ok.

Cut the dash to fit in the new shifter and cut the coil bracket to let the coil clear the brake booster.

Finished hooking the shifter cable in. I installed a STS machining smaller diameter steering shaft and cut a tab off the exhaust manifold for clearance.

Ran the oil return and oil feed for my turbo. Found some interference issues. I will have to notch or push back the firewall for the intake.

I got the new driveshaft installed. Trying to figure out where to install the turbo and route the exhaust.

This took longer than I thought trying to figure out where to put the turbo.

Mounted few things today, the coolant hoses, new over flow tank is now mounted. Going to start working on the exhaust and intercooler piping next. After that I can start wiring it up.

2.5 bar map sensor Barb was larger in diameter than stock one. Drilled out a larger hole to get it to fit.


Didnt realize I had to drill through 3/8” of metal to just get the screw hole through.


The turbo took the spot of the factory overflow tank.
