the volvo engine in the 5 is fast ......

BUT......
 

its the hassle of putting it  all together if your doing it by yourself and dont know what your doing.

it helps if you've got a step by step guide they are reliable as they are efi .

There are 2 limitations on the volvo conversion, the stock ecu's (yes there are 2) & the camshaft, ok if you want standard power from the engine or a touch above but to get decent power you will need to get a cam made & run an aftermarket ecu, the standard engine can be tuned alot more easily ;)

440/460 or 480 turbo can't remember if they differ at all in any way (sometimes different models have different engine mounts etc. ), i think they are all the same.
