    Anyone know the specs of Volvo solid axles?

    Looking to do a conversion on my Capri project.

    See this on the bay, but no idea on size, strength and final drive

    I'm going to be running 2.9 twin turbo V6 at 400BHP.
    A standard Atlas axle will crap itself long before that
    Mustang axles are rare and expensive in the UK..... plus they're not as easy to re-drill to the 4x108 PCD I've heard.

    I know a lot of Europeans do these types of conversions, though some folk on here may be able to shed some light on the specs of them?

    Ask smithy, he has some knowledge of old school volvos. AFAIK the solid axles can take a lot of grunt thrown at them.

    Another place to try is www.turbobricks.com its an old school volvo site.
