  • Let's Build a custom 240!

    Here is the scenario: You're driving home from work and take an alternate route. About 5 miles down the road you arrive at a dealership and they post up a sign that say's..."You build it, you keep it." To your amazement its a clean 1993 245 and the owner of the dealership wants some add on's. How would you build it?

          Rework and transplant a 5 cyl turbo awd. Must keep it volvo. a 5.0 as well as an LS have been done a bunch. In fact you can buy kits to do either one but an AWD 5CYL TURBO would be what I would do.
          basically force a 60 or 70R running gear down a 245s throat. Ooooooo, fabrication time...

            Have you seen SimplyVolvo's Youtube channel. He's building an 850 T-5R that's making like 800hp and he built a billet angle gear to convert it from FWD to AWD.

          I have been watching from the beginning. The angle gear is pretty sweet. The conversion to awd isn't that big of a deal as the early V70R was basically a rebadged 850. (With some mods) he does good work but I think the custom machining required would be cost prohibitive for almost all awd volvo owners.
