Default low t5 740

Hey peeps
so im starting a t5 swap into my 740, want to share with you guys and i also have some silly ass questions

so let me introduce you to my brick ;)
its a 740 glt, with 16 valve b234f engine, some extras and a rusty front fender





i have done some suspension mods already, it has 5x108 to 6x139,7 wheel adapters, shortened kilen sport springs in front, jeep(ish) shortened springs in the back, boge turbo gasmatic shock absorbers all around, poly bushings for the rear axle, -3 camber in front, welded diff and some other mods.

so as my english is not that entertaining less talk, more pictures

made a flange for the exhaust side. idk why, but all the projects i read, 3 of 4 bolts line up, in my case only 2 of 4 lined up







as im from europe got myself a decent m90 gearbox and painted red



960 sump is already welded and resurfaced

theres a little issue with the oil filter attachment how and where ? any advices ?



engine mounts test fit


got myself some badass rims Berg 17x8.5 et6 on 17mm custom made spacers (5x108 to 6x139.7)





to be continued

starting to like the 850 bumper idea... once I get mine running properly, I'll do that

edit: how hard was it to install the 850 bumper?

it depends on which year the engine is from. on my '94 engine 3 out of 4 holes were present. On a '97 2.0 T5 only 2 of them lined up.

get yourself a 960 oil filter sandwich plate as well.
I'm using the 960's water cooled oil filter sandwich plate and works a treat!

thanks!
the 850 bumper is easy, i took bumper mounts from 740 bumper and attached them to 850 bumper, essssayy

so with the oil filter the easiest solution was to tap a thread into the t5 block and make a custom thread and lenght screw for the oil filter to fit correctly




made the ''krabblock''




got myself turbo gauge from scrap yard. the max reading it can do is 1.25 bar, so thats cool, wont be needing any cyan blue flashing hromline gauges in my dash, which i think suck for a old volvo like this ;)


did abs delete for performance, cleaner engine bay and steet cred ofc, because absless cars are cool right ?!
befoar

after



the sump welded and resurfaced




im thinking to mount 850 cooler which has inlets for oil cooling too, which is cool.


did a little fast respray for the engine bay too
