Re: AMC and Cryco 360 compatibility
Nothing is compatible between AMC and Mopar 360's except the dispacement. I would never waste the effort to put an AMC 360 into anything it didn't bolt into. They are low power, low compression slugs from a bygone era. The few performance parts available are way more expensive than Ford/GM/Mopar. I drive an AMC 360 powered Grand Wagoneer every day and its been treated to a cam, intake, 4-barrel carb MSD ignition TeamRush upgrade and Flowmaster exhaust and it just begins to approach the power produced by a stock similar displacement engine of similar vintage from any of the big 3. However, I respect those who go against the flow and wish you well with your Volvo swap.
I will also point out that my insane cousin put a TPI 350 chevy into like a 73 2-door Volvo (it had a vinyl top if you can believe it) and that thing was an absolut blast!! Major sleeper the 5.0 Mustang weenies didn't know what to think after being blown off by a Volvo,
