    The three liter being an even-firing engine will have a perfectly smooth idle. More displacement and (likely) more static compression ratio with much improved intake manifolding and better exhaust manifolds over the odd-firing engine means more torque and power. Hydraulic tipped lash adjusters means no valve adjustments. The late engines have a nice engine management system and accessory drive. All easily adapted for use in the D. I used it in my Volvo 240.

    We're I to do the project today I'd use MS or another programmable system.

    I've turbocharged my three liter PRV six in the Volvo rallycar. It got Electromotive. Big big power in that one.

    I'm interested in efforts that have been put into continued development of the PRV six.

    Hi John Lane,

    Welcome to the forum!!! Is this your rally car?...

    Very, very cool! When I searched the internet for ways to get more power out of the PRV, your name came up and that rally car.

    You sir, could be the next tuner for the Delorean! Like Hennessy, Lingenfelter, etc.

    Imagine the possibilities....

    Question re: serpentine belt on 3.0L swap

    For those who swapped in the 3.0L and kept the serpentine belt drive:

    Which belt do you use now? Without the power steering pump, you need a shorter belt, right? Or did you install an idler pulley somewhere to make up the slack?

    Thanks in advance.

    Sorry to revive this old thread, but I may be able to get ahold of a decently low mileage, distributorless '91 Premier engine. I'm ignorant when it comes to EFI but I'd be willing to give it a shot. I get that the lower crankcase would have to be swapped out to maintain the stock mounts. Beyond that is there a comprehensive "How-to" for a setting up the wiring/sensors and software to get the engine properly running in the car? Thanks in advance!

    My recommendation would be to get a copy of a manual for the Premier/Monaco and make note of all needed sensors and their locations. Setting them up with your intended electronic engine management system should be pretty easy after that.

    I haven't done that swap, but I'd consider getting a complete harness and ECU. The schematics are available on the net and once you splice in the power and gauges, you're basically done...
