I've had my S70 for just over 8 years now. Being a non-turbo car, however, means that pretty much every modification done so far has been cosmetic or suspension related. Given this, I decided that I wanted to take the project one step further - and do a turbo engine swap.
Many of you know that this has been in the works for quite some time, but for those who don't, this thread is here to chronicle the progress made as I complete this project. First and foremost, big thanks to Matt (Matty Moo) for donating his garage and help with this project Also thanks to Tom (Tom.) for picking up the motor for me and shipping it. Also thanks to everyone else who's been answering my questions as I've been going about this - too many of you to name, but you all know who you are. I know that I could not complete a project like this without Volvospeed.
GOAL: To have a daily driver putting down about 300whp. This is not a weekend or track day toy so nothing exotic like a built motor.
