I know this probably gets brought up alot, but has anyone actually put a 9000 2.3T into a 900 (S or SE). I am seriously thinking about doing it and want to know what is involved and what are some common problems. I have a 1997 900 S. I heard that you can run into some heat issues because the engine bay is smaller in the 900. The only swap I have seen like this is this one. Also, what is the best way to go about getting an engine and would I be better off finding a wreck?

Yeah, I saw that car on sale on ebay. I guess its fast but it looks pretty tacky to me. The back end looks especially horibble, just not my style i guess.

My next question I guess is if I were to do a swap what should I make sure I get with the 9000 engine besides the turbo & manifolds?

NVM, by the time I figured out what this was, I realized that I was only 3 hrs away and I had missed it.
