What other engines can be placed into a 940 turbo Volvo, besides the orginal engine?

There is conversion kits to drop a Chevy 350 in some of the older Volvo. Street legal? Probably not.

Given sufficient time and money (mostly money) there are LOTS of engines that can be installed in a Volvo 940.

Whether or not you’d ever get the engine to run correctly, or pass an emissions test, is an entirely different matter.

Engine swaps aren’t what they used to be.

I wouldn’t swap anything but the exact same engine. The computer, wiring harness, exhaust, sensors . . . the whole lot was set-up for a volvo turbo engine. Anything different will have you chasing gremlins forever, IMO. Rocketman
