A volvo turbo with 105K miles on it and still costs $3500, I think I'll pass. It's not a long block or a low mileage motor. Probably at a minimum, still needs a basic rebuild to the motor and the turbo, don't you think so?

rebuild to the motor probably wouldnt hurt but i doub its necessary and the turbo would definetly be a good idea. doesnt have to be this exact motor but they dont pop-up all that often thats probably the reason for the high price and i would love to see someone especially with an rs conversion take on a i-5 swap
