With all the talk about engines for the fusion I remember that Volvo makes a 300HP twin turbo 2.5l i5 for their s60 and thought that that would make a great engine for a AWD 6 speed manual Fusion! What do you guys think?
No, the engine is a transversely mounted I5. My(I hate to say this) grandma has a s60 with the 208hp single turbo, I've had that thing up to 130MPH easy so I could only imagine how good the 300hp version would do. Her's just FWD.
The reason why Volvo didn't use the CD338 to save costs, as well as use a slightly superior chassis to the C1 based EUCD platform, was due to the i5 being a serious pain to fit. I didn't want to say anything, as I love ambitious people. Sometimes what Ford says wont work, someone else can figure out and make work.
