I am about to pick up an 05’ s60r that was involved in a rear end collision. It’s $1000 and I would love that power plant and brakes in my 242. I’ve been searching for info on why not to use a b5254t4 but can’t find anything concise.

This is my first time posting about it and I’m very ready to take on the job. Would be MS3 and Ford t5 transmission in a drift setup. Any input is appreciated, tia!

Nothing wrong with that engine. I've got one in my garage I'm going to use for a project.

It's got dual VVT, which isn't big deal. It's also DBW so you'll either need to configure for a cable throttle, or figure out an e-throttle set-up. MS3 doesn't natively support DBW.

Just search for whiteblock swaps and sort out the configuration that you want to deal with.

Adapting it to a RWD application is the same as any other whiteblock.

Check out MaxSpeed ECUs for drive by wire throttles.
