You are wanting to swap in a Volvo engine orignally designed as a six cylinder by Porsche for Volvo to use as a modular engine design. I hope it works out for you. I like the idea. Sorry don't have any helpful suggestions.

If you would go diesel, this is sitting next to my L33 engine in the warehouse at work, 2 stroke supercharged and turbocharged Detroit Diesel 4-71 would be interesting
