Our much beloved V70R (~110K miles) overheated on a family trip from Oakland to LA this week. It now sits at a dealer/service station waiting either for us to pour more money into it than we can afford right now, or for you to come and pick it up. Asking $1500, OBO. Then you can either fix the thermostat (and possibly head gasket) yourself, or part it out.
We are the original owners, with complete service records. Right before this trip, it had a regular service and new front brakes done (but, ugh, not the thermostat).
Needs to happen by Weds July 8, in Los Angeles. Paypal, Venmo works.

I'm new to Volvo's. I have a 2004 Volvo S40 1.9t automatic. My transmission is starting to go bad. I would like to swap the stock automatic with a p2 M56. Would it bolt to my engine? What mounts do I need? Is there a conversion kit I can purchase? Anything else I would need to know or purchase for this to be possible?
timing belt already done
its immaculate, i cannot believe i got so lucky.
Besides changing all the fluids, what should I pre-emptively take care of?
I'm already balls deep watching shifting lanes on youtube and moosetech who work on c30's of the same chassis model.
