    Hello Philia Bear,
    you have made some coments in regards to a 264 i recently purchased. Well i picked up a 960 for the 3.0l engine and gearbox for $500 to go in the 264. i was wondering if you know of anyone in australia who supply or make mounts for the engine? also doning some reading and talking with a few people over here they have mentioned that its easier to run the engine on MS and running the auto box on a seperate standalone system to do away with fitting a tone ring and picking up a signal from else were for the gearbox ecu?
    would you have any information on this?

    Regards Gav

  • Hi Bear,
    I'm guessing from some of your posts you are located in NSW.

    You seem to be a wealth of knowledge on this forum and as I'm only starting out here, you have already been a great help. I've seen you have checked a few cars out for other forum members.

    Was wondering if you could help me with any info about a car I enquired on.

    https://www.carsales.com.au/dealer/details/Volvo-XC90-2008/OAG-AD-12588506

    I reckon the Reg from the photos is

    BFI64U

    I'm in Victoria and as you pointed out the xc90 pickings are pretty slim.

    This one caught my eye being low km and an 09 ocean race. Spoke to the dealer today and his first offer back to me was 17600 but said he could swing 17. I reckon I can squeeze a bit more out of him but it needs to be worthwhile to go interstate for.

    Hoping you can help

    Cheers

    Dave
