Your dreaming, right? The S70 is FWD, no provision to add a rear axle and driveshaft.

That's not happening. It's FWD. Tune the 5 cylinder that's in there if it's a turbo. If not, swap in a turbo. These 5 cylinders are great engines. You can't possibly swap a V8 into that car.

Hey thanks a lot I really do need the help. I'm into tuners but she is. I'm more into prepping.
