Look hard enough, and you can find a Chevy small block powering just about anything on the planet these days: a Nissan 240SX; a Porsche 914; a Ferrari 360 Modena GT; we’re pretty sure we even saw an LS-swapped toaster oven once.
The GM LS-series engine seems to be a favorite choice among the maddest of Volvo owners as well, as evident by this Volvo 740 build featured on Swedish website Gatbilar.se (pronounced: “Jerrod-dot-shiya,” we think).
The motor in this bow-tie-powered brick is of the 355 variety, fitted with a Weiand 6-71 street supercharger kit to kick out an awesome 700 HP and 738 lb-ft of torque, if you can believe it. Additional mods include an Aeromotive fuel system and MSD ignition, with an electric water pump and plenty of fortified internals.
Sadly, we weren’t able to find any video of the supercharged and Chevy-propelled Swedish brick running and playing; there may be one around somewhere, but not having any staffers who speak Swedish, we can’t very well read the links on the car’s profile page.
But make no mistake; this 1988 Volvo 740 sedan is a hulking monster of an LS-swap. We only wish that we could hear it breathe its 110 octane fire.
