Hey so recently have had my TDO4HL-13G start leaking oil and having shaft play it is time for a new turbo so I want to upgrade I have a 2002 Volvo xc70 (Engine: B5244T3) I am heading to a local wrecking yard (Pull N Save) I was wondering from what year and model VOLVO TDO4HL-16T is a straight bolt up to my 2002 volvo xc70
I have owned this amazing vehicle and as I started researching, I found that these cars make great sleeper cars. No one wants to be taken by a grocery getter.
I am starting the build and want to get educated on my car. Vehicle: Grey 92 Volvo 240 Wagon. Engine 2.3L (That's all I know currently) I have began tearing into the engine as it died on me and has been sitting for about a year now. Shop said timing belt was busted and wanted 1,800. I decided to do it myself. I am mechanically inclined but far from a master mechanic. Anyways, I welcome any and all advice. I am going for sleeper, and will update any mods done. I want it running first. As you can see the belt is not busted and since the shop wouldn't return my car for almost 8 months, (Whole other story). I hope more issues have not raised. At almost 200,000 but prior to dying it was running very well. While I am tearing into it I want to fit it with a turbo.
Again I can work on stuff, but tricking out, yeah not my thing so first question would be.....Is this motor able to handle a turbo and will I have to get forged guts? Can I keep the same fuel rail? Cam suggestions.......So on. Thanks and I am new to the group.............
