SPM recommended that I use this gasket instead of the cheapy stock one. It's a MLS gasket and it may be for P2-R cars, maybe the S60/V70R guys can chime in. I gave the part # to several guys here on the board, only time will tell if these work better then stock, so far, no issues on my end..

I know of one person that cracked two cylinders at the top and only when he boosted 18+ psi with a GT30R he started to over pressurize the coolant reservoir/overheating the car, at 14psi the car ran normal and no coolant leaked into the exhaust.

the gasket is a special order at the Volvo dealer, cost around 40 bucks, I think.

Raf,

where did you get your manifold coated?

did it help out any?

thinking of getting my s60r along with the turbine housing coated.

any suggestions?

Calico coatings did the bearings and manifold. i had my S60R manifold ceramic coated, along with the turbine of the 19t....hard to tell a difference really, but peace of mind is always a good thing.

Yes it's Denny. He's back in Houston, give him a shout.

He's terminating the project for good :( a lot of his parts will be for sale soon, maybe all of the Houston crew can buy the parts or maybe you guys can convince him to keep it, if not, hit him up for the 034ECU ;)

Thanks for the props, I'm planing on visiting Denny soon.

Respekt x1000. I love everything you've done. With a car this pristine, the side hood to fender gap (the only "kind of" flaw I see) would kill me personally. Well that and the prospect of getting damage on outings. I was always in fear of parking my old full show VWs, whereas I don't care so much about my current cars.

Beautiful, just beautiful.

Gorgeous car man. I can tell that you really havn't spent any time or money on it. :P I can't wait to see its potential when you get the manual trans in it.

I might have missed it but are you using a stock intercooler or did you upgrade? Ac or no Ac?
