Not to mention the complete lack of any emissions devices on the engine. After 1999 the 4th character should also be considered representational of a new data set for vehicle code to with the change of series designations. I'm in Canada and where we are, we never do emissions testing good thing. While the information being represented by the character position was somewhat backwards compatible with the codes used prior to 1999, it should be considered representational of a different data set. After 1998 the 5th character changed to represent the vehicle platform. Hello all, Have a question regarding an engine change.
Your notes indicate the 5244T is a smaller displacement, but it's 2435cc according to the underhood sticker. This is my first exp. I have acouple of 2. Doug H What about in terms of part numbers I crossed referenced with a 01 2. My goal is to make this car reliable as possible from the get go once the donor engine is installed.
Didn't know that, I thought it was the same 2. Stick with the 5244T with the lower static compression and forged internals. I don't plan on getting into the internals, so port matching, porting of the exhaust, intake mods, and K04 turbo are the only planned changes. Generally, Volvos numbers at the end of the engine number refer to the fact that they go in cars with different turbos. I don't have the spec book handy but in 2000 the nomenclature changed and I think you are looking for a B5244T but not a B5244t2.
This left the 8th character position open to represent the engine emission control setup. For those who said that it's not necessary to change injectors, we must remind that the stock T5 engine have white injectors or blue injectors depending on the year. If you want, you can do a high-flow exhaust. I'm not sure it's a good idea of using smaller injectors with a bigger turbo and more boost because it will be nearing the edge of the range and will eventually break. The major bottom end changes were later. Thanks, --Perry Perry, Ignore my note, both engines are 83mmX 90mm.
Then the B5254T2 came out that was the longer stroke true 2. Found a motor in the pick a part, pulled out the complete 1996 850T-5 142,000 mile motor. Bought the car with a bad motor. Since the engine was only used for a single model and single year, owners of the B5244T2 have found that sourcing parts can become problematic, as parts sellers aren't as familiar with the engine. ~Ken The engine exchange part for the B5244T2 is 8251146.
The B5244T is the lower performance engine with a higher static compression for the lower pressure turbo. Thoughts on removing oil pan, check bearing clearances clean pan etc. Thanks, you are my inspiration to do mine. Lee You really need to know the x number that goes with B5244T. Personally I'd say go with a 2. It's easier than I thought so I'll plan to get a new exhaust system wanted to go to dual-exhaust ala V70R since mine has a filler for the 2nd one and my mufflers are rusted out and intake first. This what I had in mind but I need some confirmation.
What is the life span on these bearings seals etc. . I don't think the engine would last very long running the higher compression ratio with a high pressure turbo. The main change came again to the 5th character representing body style and safety equipment. To make matters worst, following logic, the 2.
So how can this be???? It's the stock turbo for the 98-00 T5. They couldn't keep it simple. The B5244T is the lower performance engine with a higher static compression for the lower pressure turbo. I thought the B5244T2 R motor has a compression of 9:1 while others like B5243T x T5 motor has a 8. I don't know specifically between the 2 motors you have, but since they are both from pre-99 cars and both were high pressure turbo motors, there should be no issues. The streetability of the Volvo engine and the light weight are interesting for the planned project. Back to topic : Care to link me to infos about hollowing the cat and installing a fooler? As far as compression ratio the pistons and crank should be the same between the B5254Ts and B5244Ts Not a big difference in bottom end.
I was under the assumption that the new motor was a 2. Then there is the other 2. Check out the forum post below for tips on navigating your way to buying the correct parts, straight from actual V70 owners looking to purchase head gaskets and intercooler hoses for their vehicles. Also the turbo on the motor on the donor car seems to have a fair amount of oil surrounding the housing etc. The revisions to the engines were done in phases. Stamped B5234T, and my original motor is stamped B5234T6. I'll do the tune at the same time as a new turbo and new injectors.
Published in Car Craft, Popular Hot Rodding and Super Stock magazines. Bryan Same motor between the two. I thought the B5244T2 R motor has a compression of 9:1 while others like B5243T x T5 motor has a 8. I'm a computer technician by trade and a enthusiast so I've learned to always use the right part which can work in the peak range like power supplies. It seems likely that the old 81-91 position 8 character was combined with the position 5 codes in 1992 which resulted in new codes in the 5th character position.
