I'm gearing up for a manual swap this weekend. In the process of making my list and checking it twice, I've noticed that I'm missing the hose that connects the brake fluid reservoir to the master cylinder. I can't find that part anywhere, and all the part numbers I have for it are discontinued. Has anyone else ran into this problem?
Hey guys and ladies,
I was wondering if anyone has any information for me regarding putting in an engine from a 96 850 turbo into a 97 850 manual car. Note that the 96 850 turbo has an automatic transmission and a 2.4L engine, and the 97 850 manual has a 2.3L engine. For some background info my turbo model was backed into by a friend and the insurance company claimed it as a loss so the car is now totaled and I am keeping this car and buying the manual version. The reason for this is because since the insurance company is totaling the car it will be more difficult to rebuild this car as opposed to buying another car for real cheap while also upgrading to a manual. I am not going to keep the turbo 850 but I am going to swap the engines and put the turbo onto the manual counterpart. My main question is this, which ECU should I use? To my belief it should be the auto ECU right, because it will have the software to run the engine and turbo but not the manual. Keeping the manual ECU in could damage the engine right, because the it does not know how to run the bigger liter engine along with the turbo which could cause catastrophic damage. I do not really need answers on doing the actual engine swap there is plenty of info on that. I am aware to buy new seals like the rear main seal and oil pan gaskets and what not. I am also going to get a new clutch plate. But any information anyone can give me would be appreciated.
I'm looking into swapping my auto to manual in my 99 S70 T5.
I'm in the process of sourcing parts and came across an M56 gearbox from a 2001 C70 2.4
My question is would this gearbox work? Are all M56 gearboxes the same regardless of its paired engine?
I know that there is a M56H and an M56L, but from what I read I gather either will be fine, its just a final drive ratio difference between the 2.
Ideally I was looking for an M56 from a 1999 or 2000 S70 T5 so I'll know for sure that it'll work, but that's hard to find.

Selling my 97 850 na 5spd, car has unknown mileage I'd ballpark it between 150k-200k
has a couple small oil leaks
needs front left axle
most of the panels are good (black)
headliner is sagging
front suspension is blown
car would be great for a manual swap parts car and to pull some NA parts from and spare body panels. I'll get pics up later today. Car is located in Hempstead NY could be driven a short distance.
$600 last chance before it gets scrapped next week
