Engine swap info

Hoping someone can point me in the right direction , I'm looking for websites or books on engine swaps.
I just bought 2 books http://www.amazon.com/Engine-Swappin...7502616&sr=1-1
and an oldie by Tex Smith both were fun to look at but not much on set up.

I want to be sure since I am not buying a kit (900$) to stuff a 5.0 in a Volvo
that it all lines up as in correct math .
Ideas ? thanks

Find a Volvo support group there may be people that have already done what you want.

Thanks for the responce , but the info I am after has nothing to do with Volvo
I just want the basic engine, drivetrain angles thats all .
Most all the Volvo guys buy kits that are bolt ins.
all I am finding on the net is about Honda car swaps FWD's no help there.

Just changed my wording for my search and found this and many like it.

I have the front mounts from someone on a Volvo site (OVT) So I just need to fab a rear mount for the trans . The fab part doesn't scare me the alignment part had me concerned .
All better!
