Another 426 swapped, mine was done a week ago and I got the strong impression she wont stay silver( only 50 cars were silver R on MY 2000)!

Looks like I'll have to drive to NY state when I swap my Saff.

3 days start to finish, it's almost like you've done this before.

Back home after easing through crazy April weather. Glad to not drive it until the snow clears. Almost bit the dust immediately upon leaving the hotel this morning. That would have been bad. 

Can't say enough about the swap and support from everyone here and those directly involved. Certainly the car it always could have been with the correct factory setup.

When the weather clears I will get more photos of the interior work and finish up making it look stock. the center console is open and a mess.

Andy did a great job with the wiring and we learned some stuff along the way. I have the clutch switch wired in however it wasn't able to be integrated into the tune. Every time we touched it the throttle dropped off immediately. 

proud to say i've only forgotten to put the clutch in twice so far when starting it.

that was one of my questions, what did you learn? where did you join the pnp wiring? at the tcm plug or at the trans end?

Big set of images from the swap. Just fun to see it all taken apart. 

Thursday night engine on the ground.

Center console and auto shifter removed. No cutting done yet.

neat to see the orginal engine block shine still. This is where the oem block heater mounts up. Car is summer only and doesn't live in the arctic circle so it can stay off.

Working hard Friday with the auto trans off. For sale througn RSAS if any one needs a perfect working 4 speed.

So long ATF

Torque spec X + 45 degrees?

Trying to determine what parts go back into the sub-frame bushings. The top and bottom plates go back in with this design.

Spot the problem! We put two bottom ones in one side. OOPS

Difficult step in this process. Placing the new collar gear on the transmission would be impoissble with hand tools. It took the two of us holding it up to the 20ton press and then some one else lining it up and another person working the handle to get this seated in place.

NO one suspects the Volvo

Some strong armed cursing and the transmission is in place

Had a moment to wrap the rest of the Downpipe.

Left in as much center console plastic as I could but it takes a lot to make it fit.

Nice!

Did you buy the PDV collar? Stock Volvo unit should not have needed any encouragement for installation..

Just the oem kit! Hammers couldn't do it. We used the grease and the splines were free of anything big. Glad I changed it. Stock one was toast.

Edit: we got it started by hand and needed the press to get it in the rest of the wag.

Interesting. No sign of damage to the splines on the diff? Which PN collar did you use? I wonder if they have updated the tolerance to reduce wear....

Still shows the little bottle of grease but it no longer comes with it. Wouldn't be the worst thing if it fit tighter. 

The transmission side seemed great. In the end the sleeve that came off was actually in good condition as well. But given the time and money already spent on making the whole swap happen, it didn't make sense to not put a new on in there. 

Still awesome as well that the angle gear bolts right on to the transmission from a car 6 years newer.

      Hi im new to this forum and this is my first post.
      i have a V70r 1999 
      there seems to be difficult to find a gearbox replacement 1208943. Reason for replacement is the gears are slipping when the atf is hot. I want to rebuild it but instead of taking down the one on the car I’m looking for one used I can rebuild and swap with the one on the car.
      my questions is: can i use other gearboxes F.ex 1208942 from xc70? 
      Does anybody here know What might be wrong with the one i have? No DTCs!
      Does anybody have A 1208943 they might wanna sell? Or maybe 8111193..
      other things I can do except flush as I just did that? 12l jws3309+treatments+leakstop
      where is the Volvo race mechanics ? 😅

      A slightly neglected but making a comeback, 70R that is just itching to find a motivated owner. Nearly every month, we all read, or hear about, another R selling for CRAZY money. This particular R is NOT crazy money. It's reasonable money. $4000.00 and who knows, it may be even cheaper. What I would REALLY be interested in, is a TRADE. STRAIGHT ACROSS. CAR FOR CAR. 
       
      MINE; 2005 VOLVO V70R ONE OF 674
      190,000. Mostly fwy commute miles silver paint with the typical Gobi colored leather. Yes, it would be nice if it were flash green with Atacama but it's not. Clean title, never been involved in any significant accidents. NO panel has been repainted. Has a few of the typical umps and bruises but nothing big. Interior is Gobi leather and is a little tired. CaR starts easily, idles nicely, revs like a pissed off banshee,  has a working 4C system, all three settings, NO CHECK ENGINE LITE, NO codes other than ignition ring and rear wiper motor. 
      Automatic trans with a new, Quality replacement, valve body including all eight shift solenoids. New, not ebay Chinese "reman" solenoids as well as all new proper transmission fluid. I have set adaptation thru VIDA only to find out that the VIN LOCKED TCU is probably "bricked" and needs a XEMODEX replacement.  APPROXIMATELY  $499.95  I just don't want to deal with it as I have other cars and projects in various stages of completion and have no room. 
      If I were to keep it, I would absolutely do an M66 Install as this conversion alone seems to make people go mad and throw huge amounts of cash at owners. 
      If I had the room I'd strip it bare and make it a 6 speed track only car with full cage etc.
      Yours; 95-97 855R  prefer red but any R color would work. Needs to be in reasonably decent condition. NO SALVAGED TITLE. Must run. NO more than 2 years out for tags. I understand how old they are and how crappie the interior plastic is now so I won't freak about a cracked or broken interior. PLEASE,  NO TOTAL POS CARS BUT SOME ISSUES ARE EXPECTED 
      Interested? Let me know what you're thinking and maybe we can make something happen

      Hello, 
      first time posting here not sure what to expect. So I have an 07 xc70 I recently purchased and have a few questions about some performance mods I would like to do. So this car has about 175k miles and I want to boost my horse power up to the high 200’s if not low 300’s it’s my daily and I want a bit more juice for fun but I don’t want to destroy it too bad I love the i5 sound and the entire car in general. What are some things I can do to increase the horsepower but keep it from killing itself. Also what are some good exhaust mufflers or kits I can buy that increase the sound at higher rpms but not as much at low rpms it just sounds so amazing at high revs and I want to emphasize that as I’m driving. Any feedback or suggestions would be great. Thanks!
