You drove mine and commented on how you didn't hate it!

I love my T5. No noises. Guess it’s the only lucky thing on my car so far. Oh and the exhaust heat wrap not rusting.

Been buying and selling like a fiend trying keep a "net zero." LOL.

Actuator and injectors ordered. Late-model manifold heat shields are on the way. STS drain fitting here. ATP WG hardware / V-band / etc. en route. Need to revisit my exhaust flex thing choice.

Maybe start cleaning things up and replace the pan gasket while we wait on the exhaust manifold machine work.

Could one of those little plastic fuel injectors really weigh 30lbs?

I did some super basic measurements with an AR5 while getting it ready for my 242 LS swap, and I have no idea why someone hasn't come up with an adapter kit for redblocks yet.

I have an AR5 that was originally slated for another project that didn't work out and I've often wondered how it would fit in my 245.

Packaging wise, it fit into my 242 with no hammering at all. Shifter location is suboptimal but that could be solved with the Solstice version. I measured input shaft length and it looks like it would work with an adapter plate and bellhousing, and the gear ratios aren't hugely different.

I have the Solstice version (it's actually still bolted to a Solstice engine, sadly not the turbo one though). Guess I know what I need to do if the AW71 ever craps out.

M90 is pretty quiet, even with the single mass flywheel. Ratios aren't very good if you want to have a racecar.

No time to wrench. Some parts are arriving. Pan came right off. Gasket was hard. Not the cleanest, or the dirtiest, motor I've seen.





PCV drain tube is hard but, probably, functional.





Just need the manifold and turbo oil lines.

Replace the pcv hose and oil transfer tube pump seals when you already have the pan off. I would only use volvo oil transfer pump seals.

^This & a late model transfer tube (matched to oil pump or have a few handy that fit best) & ~1989?+ OE 'tall' gear oil pump/egg beater is a nice addition to an '87 & earlier engine.

So, you removed the engine to do all this though?

So much heavy lifting/brute force for a few leaks! Impressive.

Great idea.

You know me. First time I pulled it, years ago, was to degrease it; rather than fix an inop heater in the dead of winter...



But it will make it easier to swap the pan gasket this time.

^You need to go to the gym why again?

Tall gear pumps from 89-90 N/A cars tend to be lower RPM/less cooked oil/less beat up and tighter tolerance.

Squirter motors more oil volume/same pressure & run hotter on the e-fan cars, so they tend to be more beat up.

Get the tube with the pump is all if possible...tube seems to be matched to pump housing, block tolerance seems "similar" ( at that in redblock land) on all of them.

Not much time to wrench. Maybe put the motor back in the car this week. Waiting on oil supply / drain lines. Need studs for the turbo (does a gasket go between the manifold and turbo?). Going to need a joiner or two for the intake. Injectors arrived. Exhaust flex thing arrived. Need to sort out the waste gate actuator. Manifold heat shields arrived (do I use the lower heat shield, between the manifold and the alternator, on the late model manifold?). Did Volvo stamp numbers on the big end of the con rods or has my engine been rebuilt? Losing the water cooling on the turbo, but I don't think that's a huge deal.

Sorting the down pipe will be interesting. Probably going to start the car with the small waste gate so I can connect the down pipe. Then drive it over to Robert's. Swap the ATP waste gate on at his place, then weld up the exhaust. Probably.

Don't know, what I don't know, at this point. Having fun.
