    How much torque will a Volvo axle take?

    I've got a Volvo 240 axle which has worked fine with a Rover V8, but does anyone know what kind of torque it'll take? I'm thinking of changing the Rover V8 for a Ford 302. Wiil it handle 412 bhp?

    I've sat and talked to one of them for hours and hours and it never bothered







    Ran a 327ci Chevy on one and it never broke but 412hp is probably asking a bit much

    A mate of mine went around 11.50 with a blown block small block on hoosier quick times,

    You dont say the car spec,
    A 4000lb car on slicks it wont last long,
    2500lb car on street tyres= the opposite.
