No offense taken, I'm not an historian on Volvos. I presume you would have agreed, if parts were available.

Good luck with your mods. I'm sure you'll get it to work, but it seems like a remarkable PITA to me. When I think about all the high tech engineering that goes into OEM setups, only to find some nano-tolerance causes a recall 6 months off the shop floor, my head spins to think of this swap out.

Sincerely, good luck with it. Beyond my pay grade.
