240 Normally Aspirated to Turbo Conversion Kit

I found this kit for sale on Ebay Germany. Appears to be a Volvo factory item. Very interesting. Kit converts a non-aspirated Volvo 6 cyl. diesel to a turbodiesel. Complete with intercooler. Price... 500 Euros + shippin'

As you might know, the VW/Audi motor found in your Volvo was very common in the VW LT series of light/medium duty trucks and vans. I couldn't tell if any of the branding in your pictures was Volvo-specific, but maybe that was the market they were aiming for.

by the way, na stands for naturally aspirated, but i suppose it could be argued that the na volvo diesels were non aspirated with that weak horsepower rating.

This info. was provided merely as a curiosity... I don't know exactly what's in the kit. I just found it interesting. Yes, you are correct that the D24T motor does have jets that spray oil into the bottom side of the pistons.
