    I have heard from guys on TF that this is an involved swap to do.Not a simple bolt on job but lots of fab work because the Volvo head is shorter than the Ford 2.3L block.

    From what I know the head only bolts on. Work is needed to make it work so yes it is an involved project.

    Still also curious how far MikeSVOR got on his

    Have you fixed your A/F ratio yet? on the video it shows a 20:1 mix, and in the end, how much was it to mod the head to work?

    His a/f ratio is only in the high teens/20's on decel, which is how it's supposed to be. the injectors shut off on decel which raises the a/f. If he was coasting down the road, it would read 28.7% oxygen or whatever the atmosphere is...
