    I like to know if you can change the motor out of a 1990 780 turbo 6 cylinder non turbo, and into a 4 cylinder turbo. Also does that requires to change the transmission?

      Hello Kenny,

      it’s possible! A couple of owners of a Volvo 260-series, 760 and 780-drivers has done this swap because they think the 4-cylinder redblock is more reliable. But you’ll have to make some modifications like the engine support, some changes in electric harnesses, bellhouse of the transmission and some other minor stuff. It isn’t easy, but it isn’t as hard as changing a manual transmission for an automatic transmission.

      Good luck!

      Best regards,
