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.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

Oh its a PITA for sure, no doubt about it. Although my entire boat is in complete shambles so I'm pretty desensitized to work loads at the moment.

I just finished re-stalling the floor liner this morning, i had to cut it out and re-build 3 floor stringers and replace the entire main bulkhead.

....90 days....stress? What stress? Its a useless emotion....
