It is possible, but so far there isn't anything official ;)

If you release it, making a real D16 for it will be a challenge....the highest power variants at the time, the D16 625 and D16 600 under EPA 07, was a multi-torque engine with 3 curves (the other 2 variants, the 550 and the 500 only had 2 curves), and currently the game engine only supports 2 curves

VT was only available with D16 engine. Hence the bigger grill. It was suppose to be the biggest and best the Volvo had to offer, but it was too heavy, and the first D16 had issues because the just botched together something from european D16C and it didn't really work. Volvo did fix the issues but it was too late.
It was mostly reliability issues with the turbo that sunk the whole thing AFAIK. In the mid-2000 the turbos that they were using for the north american market that came from a third party were not as reliable as the ones made by Volvo themselves...took them a year or two to finally find the issue and start replacing all of them with turbo made by themselves. But by then it was too late and the reputation of the D16 had sunk to the point that it took years for Volvo to build it back, and even then it was not enough and they finally killed the D16 3 years ago for the north american market.

What cabs does the Hum3d model have? I would love to take a run at converting, but I don't have the time for a project like that.

@DutchBandit Good luck mate! But I'm afraid XBS no longer visits the forum (probably the reason he opened his own website to distribute his mods) :(

@galimim It has a daycab by default, but I also got the VNL from Hum3d with a conventional sleeper cab, alongside other cool trucks such as the Volvo VHD. I'd love to do something useful with them. but I got some very important exams coming so no time for modding :(

If you will ever have the time to deal with them, you can shoot me a PM anytime.

I never did modding myself so have to dig into that. If it will work out I'll let you know.
