The enigne is a B234, gearbox getrag 260 and there will be a pretty big turbo, comes from a caterpillar dumper.

I am buliding the car so that i can have fun with it : ) On the street, strip and track. But i know that the car will not get the best time : )

And i think that volvo should have build this car rwd at the beginning. So i just have to do it myself :)

If you are looking for big power then this is the way to go. Anything much over 200bhp and front wheel drive is insanity on wet roads.

I was a good way to planning a 4 wheel drive conversion, using the B18FT (with an M45 supercharger, and T3 turbo) and modified gearbox, to feed a volvo 360 diff, and rear axle. I crashed the car before it happened though :(

I wish you the best of luck with this conversion.
