Here is the latest update on the $600 Volvo with a blown motor. Last night after work me and my buddy drove down to another Volvo guy’s house and picked up an engine. What better engine to put into this thing than a $150 dollar 2.5 out of XC90 with 140k on the clock?

And what better way to get it home than in a trunk of a Crown Vic?

I will be replacing all the oil seals throwing a new timing belt on there before putting it in the car. I think turbo will be getting rebuilt as well because it’s leaking.

So far I am $828 into it.
