Re: Repower from volvo engine?

Fix what you have it is still the only cheep option. If you replace same with new same, it costs the price of the replacement plus labor. If you go down the re-power with a different brand of engine then your costs will be the new engine plus parts to make it fit and labor. So if a non Volvo engine is about $15K, plan on about $30K to complete.
