If this gets an S54 I'm going to be swooning far more than is healthy.

No S54. If I’m gonna swap it, I gotta do it on the cheap.

Freshly machined. Lapped the valves to be sure they seal up.



CADing the flange for the lower intake so I can make a new plenum.

Where can a guy pick up a whiteblock exhaust flange? I guess I should see if the RNC uses a different pattern first. Also, anyone know if an 850 flywheel will bolt onto a newer engine? For RWD in my light car, I want to ditch the dual mass flywheel. Also want to keep the stack height short so I have room for adjustability. Are Volvo flywheels neutral balanced, or are the balanced as part of the system (crank etc)?

I have a drawing of a B6304, but not the 5 cyl. Are they the same ports with one less? If so, I've attached it my folder will all the Volvo flanges I've found online. The 6 cyl whiteblock one is in there.

lol Probably were thinking... "Wait, since when did a 240 owner show up at the cars & coffee meet?" At least, unlike WagonFest, we at least did say something.

The motors from the s40/v50/c30 are a different port shape, bolt pattern and tighter bore spacing than the older whiteblocks.

Well, although the intake for sure is different, the exhaust appears to be the same as other whiteblocks. Cut this from a six cylinder pattern trimmed down to five holes.

An 850 flywheel will bolt right up to newer engines. My friend ran one on his C30 for a while. Donít know how theyíre balanced, sorry.

You already know this but yes, the The RNC exhaust port layout is the same as the earlier engines. The RNC exhaust manifold gasket is MLS and is a semi-popular choice for the older engines instead of the 5 individual gaskets that originally came on those engines.

Just an MDF test piece. Takes like five minutes. Iíll refine it a little and see about having one machined or laser cut for me.

Good to know! ATP Turbo told me they were different but looks like you are right!

Flywheel should be independently balanced. All the manual swaps go from flexplates to random flywheels with out issue.

Might not be the most popular choice, but I’m thinking of using Alodine 1201 to “color” the block/head and some other misc aluminum parts. Alodine is a conversion coating for aluminum that is used in the aircraft industry. It’s sort of like anodizing in that it converts the surface of the aluminum to resist corrosion. I want sort of a vintage aircraft look to the engine and I think a combo of alodine, gloss black, texture black and maybe some gold or copper accents will be a good look.

This is what alodine looks like. Usually parts are soaked in it, and I’d probably need to use a spray bottle and spray the main setup. I guess even if I don’t like the result, it’s a perfect surface to paint at that point.

Dash transition base is out.



I’ll have to mess with it later in the week. I have a same-day down & back to San Diego for work tomorrow.

Also figured out why my parking lights wouldn’t come on this morning. Not exactly sure why it happened though.
