I was wondering what all I would need to convert my 1989 volvo 244 gl into a manual. Are there other pedal assembly's that would fit my car, like those from a 850. Sorry if there is already a discussion on this. This is my first post and I dont know yet how to navigate this site.

I saw on ebay there were some borg warner mustang t5 transmissions, are they the same? Is it worth paying extra money to do a t5 swap versus a m47?

The M47 would be just fine unless you plan to pump up to big horsepower and performance mods.

Is your 240 in good condition?

My 240 is in decent condition, the only problem is that my struts need replaced. In a month it will be fixed. The engine doesn't show its age, especially for having 19X,XXX miles. When I swap the tranny I will do a B230 or a B234. My dad has thrown around the idea of using a B30 like the one in his 1973 164e. He even has a complete engine i might be able to use.
