I think im becoming a lurker on hybrid bit.Anybody know of anyone sticking1991/1997 volvo 960 3litre straight six standard 200hp 200ft in any z,i got an easy na 240hp 208ft out of wifes stripped out brick estate [parts fetcher]just by replacing extremely restrictive exhaust system and downpipes[,centre box and really bad flowing 3pass rear box] and self fabbed intake ram pipe and modded ammand throttle body,engine was originally designed by porsche from what i remember.I could bore you more.Pic isnt her engine but same 6.

A bit off topic/not z related and maybe old news,but 8 turbos is quite an interesting engineering exercise,only made about 750hp but thats not the point.

Blimey your on it BigBlock, not doing the volvo 6 pot but gathering bits for the m3 s54 conversion at the mo, 340 hp stock, now let me chop them cats of and see what that brings lol

nice motor good torque, why does vanos spring to mind:)or [e46 m3 csl] with better cams.Any time frame you working to or is it as and when?Im a big fan of any engine that gives the goods reliably and na but thats me.On another footing some of the newer volvo 6s, the s80 i think are running twin turbos oem not great power,and theres a guy running a 500/600hp yellow estate in uk but imagine not reliable.
