Benz 190 Volvo 2.5 Engine Swap by gayman99: 5:06pm On Sep 18, 2023
Hi gurus in the house.

I have a Benz 190 lying idle for the past 5 years and I am thinking of swapping the engine with a Volvo 2.5 engine.

I want to know if this is a good idea as I find Volvo cars more reliable.

Can it be done? Probably yes

Can it be done by our people here in Naija? Probably No

In the event it's actually doable to perfection, are you willing to finance it to that perfection? Probably No

I think you should use your car "as is", if you love a Volvo so much, just get one πŸ‘πŸΎ

Instead of that rubbish you want to attempt, get a 2.5 i6 corsworth engine for that 190E.

It won't easily fit in that bay. He can do a M104 l6 3.2 or 3.4 AMG engine. These are easier and won't cause a whole lot of issues or require serious electrical works.

That kind of surgery is very risky o. Why not get a tokunbo engine of that car and fix if you still want to enjoy the car? Better still, sell it off, there are people that will appreciate this car better than you.
